sneak peek - a very special kids' book

Monday, 8 April 2013

Who are these kids? They're five little Aussies, poised to take you on a journey through Australian childhood . . .

One of the dreamiest things about being an author is the moment you realise your vision is not only going to come to life - it's going to be look a whole lot better than you even ever imagined it. And this is especially special when it's one of your friends who is helping this vision unfold.

This August, three of my picture books will be released {can't wait to show you all three!} and one of them is from a manuscript that's very dear to my heart. I wrote it a long time ago {though, like all books, it's morphed through several incarnations} and after some almost-published let-downs, it's still quite surreal to realise the book is finally, finally going into print.

It's being illustrated by one of my dearest friends, Tina Snerling, who worked on handmade living with me back in 2010, and her illustrations for the book have surpassed all expectation. The book is quite special in the way it's been laid out, but here is a little sneak peek at just some of the images that will comprise the book.

Don't worry - Tassie has since been added! {above}

In the coming weeks, I'll also give you a little peek at my other books - and will reveal titles and covers soon. I'll be in Brisbane early August for this book's launch {Black Cat Books, Saturday 3 August} and there'll be several Canberra book parties and launches, so keep an eye on my blog for more - would love to see you there!
