MY NEW BOOKS, MY OLD STORIES – released today

I believe it's now called a 'shelfie' when authors take photos of their own books. Technically this should be performed in a bookstore, ideally in front of a major display in the shop window. I'm in the wrong country for doing that, so I had to put my advance copies on my own shelf.

I’m hoping people will judge my new books by their covers, because these ones look terrific, and they’ve been released into stores and online today.

Thanks, Terry Denton, for the fabulous illustrations. And thanks, Random House, for rejacketting and republishing these collections. They were originally published in 2008 and sold respectably then. But in this throw-away, disposable, short-attention-span world, any author should be delighted when his books get a rerun.

For those who can’t nip into a bookstore in Australia to buy hard copies, they are available online or as downloads. You can find them with a click HERE and HERE. Cheapskates can even read a sample story for free.

Excellent Christmas presents for 5-10 year olds!

    I started reading The Lizzard’s Tale and sadly it stopped before I got to the end. Boo hoo. 😦 I forgot that I wouldn’t be able to read the whole story. I was so enthralled. It was very good, cute and funny. I still collect good children’s books, even though my children are grown. I will have to add these two to my collection.

    • Thanks for the encouragement, Rebecca, and good to see the marketing (and maybe the writing?) is clever enough to make people prepared to pay to read on. Hope you enjoy the rest of the stories.
