August was Awesome

August was month of supersonic proportions!
The month of August launched with JOSH AND THE IT zooming away to the Children’s Publisher Leonie Tyle recommended, with her brilliant review attached and a kick-ass marketing plan.

Last week Donna Jelli-Beanz interrogated me on JOSH’s past and future, bribing me with jelli-beanz and cups of tea to disclose my latest pitch …

‘World’s best game-fighter, Josh becomes a Space Kid. When he learns how to be a team player, he succeeds in capturing the It, saving the Galaxy.’

The month culminated with me reading JOSH AND THE IT to a horde of child-like aliens, monsters, and space creatures at Logan North Library junior book club.
I zipped out all my teacher and theatrical resources to keep this lively bunch entertained.
I had the kids standing on tippy-toes reaching for the stars then blasting off into space … Gee I miss teaching sometimes!!

Just a glimpse of September

Next Saturday the 4th of September, I’m gearing up for the CYA Children’s Conference in Brisbane, hoping to chat with my superheroes of Children’s Writing ─ Check out this stella line-up … Kate Forsyth, Gabrielle Wang, Dee White, Sheryl Gwyther, Katherine Battersby, Angela Sunde … to name just a few.

WoW! It’ll be a blast!

As I wait to hear from the Children’s Publisher,  September promises to be one helluva busy month.

I can hardly wait to tell you about it … Wish me luck.

  • Well done, Karen! I’m so envious of the CYA Conference. Looks to be a great line up of talented authors.

  • Super hero? Me? Tee hee hee…thank you, Karen! LOL
    Actually, you are a hero to me too.

    Those kids in the photo look to be having a ball. I’ll be sure to have a hero costume ready for a future release. Meantime, do you have a fairytale costume? A Princess or a frog might be good.

    CYA Saturday!!

  • Hi Carol, The CYA conference is amazing. I went to my first one last year and I was blown away by the line-up, the standard of the writing sessions and the friendliness of the the Childrens Writers themselves. It was heaven :))

  • Thanks Angela, I’ve really appreciated all the support you’ve given me. Thanks so much :)) Mmm Princess or frog costume? … I’ll have to look into that!! CYA Saturday :))
