What a grand feeling it is, to open up a box full of your own books! I love it! Tonight my fellow Ten Penner, Louisa and I opened our first delivery of our books. Wow, they do look good! Even if I do say so myself 🙂
It’s no surprise that I am very excited to be receiving our first shipment of Mystery, Mayhem & Magic soon. Tomorrow is our last Ten Penners meeting to fine tune our marketing and get revved up for the book launch on the 4th November. Not that we really need revving up! See the previous post for the details of the launch and click here to make your free reservation for the library event. This is important for catering purposes! Or chat to us on our Facebook page and follow the event link.
In the lead up to the book launch, starting from the 15th October we will be having a blog tour. I hope you can join us and if you make a comment on the post you will go in the draw to win an autographed copy of our book! Comment every day for more chances! 🙂
Excitement is building as The Ten Penners new anthology is almost here. We have worked very hard to bring a book full of interesting characters and amazing adventures to life!
I would like to invite you all to our book launch at Broadbeach library see the poster on the left for details.
I have also included a little sneak peek of the proof, there’s only a few minor changes and we will have our order in for our books! Yay! Leading up to the launch we will also be talking at the Gold Coast Writers meeting on the21st October and doing readings at the Lanes Mermaid Waters for their Halloween market. Looking forward to dressing up for that one!
Have a beautiful long weekend! Marion 🙂
I had a lovely writing day today! First, half of The Ten Penners met and we had some head shots taken for our author profiles in our latest anthology, ‘Mystery, Mayhem & Magic.’ It’s adventure themed for young readers aged 8 – 12 years. Then our book cover was voted on and I am very happy with it. I feel like I am going for an evening exploration through a Tallebudgera Valley trail. I wonder what fun, interesting or weird things I may encounter? Guess I will have to open up the book and look inside…
Fellow Ten Penners, Jill Smith, Kate Russell and myself are preparing our chat to year 4 & 5 students at Broadbeach Independent Primary School tomorrow morning.
After having a fun time at St Joseph’s in Brisbane earlier this year, we are really looking forward to this one. It had been a while for me and the first time for Jill and Kate, but it is so much fun to connect with the kids and promote reading and find out what they think of our stories. Tomorrow we will all be more relaxed (I hope!).
Getting ready for this years NA-NO-WRI-MO and getting excited about it.
I haven’t really been doing that much writing lately. I still co-ordinate The Ten Penners, a support / sub group of the Gold Coast Writers Association. We work in the adults writing for children genre. It covers quite a large audience, but we seem to stay in the young readers target of 10-12 years old.
For me, my writing never stopped. It was just simmering on the backburner whilst life took a few priorities out of my time. This November, I hope to get the literary juices flowing and I will be manifesting my steampunk story. It may or may not go into The Ten Penners’ next anthology. If I actually make 50,000 words and win my NA-NO-WRI-MO certificate, I will most likely try publishing it as a book. If I don’t get the count up, then I shall submit it for the anthology. Either way I guess I win because it will be getting my writing into action, instead of having it swirling around in my head.
I’m looking forward to sharing my new adventures with you.
