Welcome to the November 2017 edition of CKT
Just a short one this month, as I am working as diligently as Santa’s helpers preparing for next month's Bumper Birthday edition.
I’m off to the KOALA Awards this month. KOALA is a non-profit organisation run by volunteers (teacher/librarians, public librarians, teachers, publishers and other supporters of children’s literature).
Every year, young readers from all over New South Wales judge their very own literary awards. By voting in the KOALA awards, they can reward the Australian children's books that have most inspired, amused, terrified, enlightened and engaged them.
I’ll fill you in on all the goss over on the blog later this month.
Speaking of our blog, lookout for a guest post from emerging author, Artelle Lenthall. Artelle will be revealing an exciting new service from Creative Kids Tales in her post Manuscript Assessment vs Critique. The post goes live on 6 November.
The CKT Blog is now our most visited page! We have covered a variety of subjects on our blog including Author Etiquette, Independent Publishing, Writing with Abandonment, Writing – work life balance, Building your Author Platform and we also chatted with a few International Authors – Kate DiCamillo, Jeff Kinney, Lucy Cousins and Stephan Pastis. Why not keep up to date with all our posts, simply pop over to our blog page and subscribe!
The layout work for the Creative Kids Tales Story Collection is almost complete and then it’s off to the printers. I look forward to sharing more information with you in the coming weeks.
My little book baby, Clover’s BIG Ideas will be launched in both Sydney and Queensland this month. Dates, times and venues can be found on the Clover’s BIG Ideas Facebook page.
My author website is up and running. My husband has done a great job in developing a clean uncluttered site. Please pop over to my place when you have a minute and let me know what you think www.georgiedonaghey.com.au
Our anthology competition, Wings, Superheroes and Determination is now closed. The winners will be announced in the December edition of Creative Kids Tales.
That’s all from me for this month. See you in December.
