Well, it's been a while since I've managed to blog and with very good reason. A fully booked term 2 touring Devon was exhausting. Eight weeks on the road that seemed longer. I had the pleasure of working in some fantastic schools and with amazing young writers and very enthusiastic teachers. The tour was a complete success. I'm back home now for a couple of weeks before I start again, this time covering Somerset during terms three and four.
There are three books being published during the first term of the new year. Two are for younger readers and the seventh Walking with book. exciting times! I'm also working on, simultaneously, two young adult books and an adult book, all of which are in the final stages of editing. 2019 looks likely to be my best publishing year to date because it's not stopping there. More on this at a later later.
I think as this year comes to a close it is appropriate to thank everybody who has invited me into their schools, everybody who has helped make the tours possible and everybody who has continually supported the journey I'm on. Also a special word of thanks to the people who read my books prior to editing, for their thoughts, advice and support and my amazing artists who help bring my books to the attention of browsers.
All that's left to say is that I wish everybody a happy new year, be safe, be lucky and most of all keep reading.
