This coming Saturday, 14th July 2018 sees the start of the Children’s Summer Reading Scheme. When the children come to my local Library to sign up for the scheme they will find several published authors on hand to talk to about anything and everything to do with writing books – how to go about it, how they are illustrated, how to stimulate your imagination and so on.
As well as answering questions on these and other book related topics I will be there giving short workshops on how to write Elfje poems and encouraging them to write their own. The event runs from 10.00am to 4.30pm. It is hoped that parents and others interested in the publishing process will also find the event helpful.
My latest book “Simply Elfje” is now available to buy from Amazon. This is a new direction for me – as an Indie publisher it is difficult to get my books onto Amazon so I have chosen to publish this book of little 11 word poems via Amazon’s CreateSpace platform which does allow me entry onto Amazon.
This also means I can easily create an e-book version and I will do this in a few weeks time. Hopefully it will be ready by early May.
You can find more about the book on my Books page where you will also find a link to Amazon for purchasing. I do not currently hold any stock myself but will do so soon at which time I will add a PayPal button.
It may interest you to know that as far as I am aware this is the only book of Elfje poems available in English. Previously the verse form has been confined to The Netherlands, where it was developed. Let’s help spread the word!
