Crazy Week

Sure has been a bit of a crazy week.
Much time has been spent:

  • working on the SCBWI Showcase for the Bologna Children’s Book Fair that is on in a few weeks time;
  • collecting creates of book packages from the post office which contain books and postcards and stuff for me to take to Bologna where i’ll be displaying books from this creative side of the world;
  • to sorting the SCBWI Crystal Kites Member Choice Awards (over 1200 books were nominated and for each division the 5 most popular go through to round two – and Sounds Spooky made it there);
  • dropping in to a school. I forgot to add a note last Tuesday to give a shout out to the Year 4 Sydney Grammar Prep Boys at St Ives. I had a fun morning with the boys there chit chatting about poetry in all its many forms and inspiring them (I hope) to write some really evocative and fun poetry of their own. I sure hope I get to see those poems.

This is the a quick snap of SOME of the Books and postcards and business cards that will soon be winging along to Bologna. Even allowing for my extra baggage allowance this IS a heavy bundle. Thank goodness for wheelie bags!

The week is nearly done!
