It’s nearly school holidays here and I’ve got a few things planned to celebrate the release of Brimstone, the first book in the Firewatcher Chronicles.
First up, I’m visiting the gorgeous town of Kyneton this weekend for a writing workshop for kids at Squishy Minnie’s bookshop. We’ll talk about adventure stories and have a go at writing some. Sunday, 23 September from 11am-1pm. For readers and writers 8-12.
And then, at the other end of the holidays, I’ll be at Readings Kids bookstore in Carlton. The lovely Amie Kaufman and I will talk about writing, and especially writing adventure stories, and then we’ll all write a story together. We reckon it’s about Stories of Fire and Ice, because my books are all about fire, and Amie’s new series is all about ice. Friday 5 October at 11 am. For readers and writers 7 years and up.
I really wanted to have launch events for kids, because that’s who the book is for. So I hope you can come celebrate with me.
But do save another date: The Firewatcher Chronicles launch for all ages will be on the afternoon of 27 October in an actual (well, former) fire station! Stay tuned for details.
