Strawberry Scoreberries Is Out Now!

 Yes indeed. My latest book, Strawberry Scoreberries, is out now. 

Oh, yeah. I did the illustrations too. When I wrote The Christmas Starfish I said I wouldn't illustrate again, but, well, here we are. I did. And it took me AGES!!!! Still, I really enjoyed it and I'm very pleased with how they came out. I'm not going to make myself any promises about illustrating again because, well, just because really. I'd love to work with an illustrator so I can focus on the wordsmithing side on things. 

Like The Christmas Starfish, this is self-published. Hopefully with a growing body of work out there I can get the attention of a good agent and a publisher for future works. 

Here's the blurb from the Amazon book page.

Join the berry silliness and meet a bunch of fun-berries. What happens when a STRAWBERRY gets a bump....? OW! IT'S A SORE BERRY! A couple of CRANBERRIES? Nah, stick a wig on them and HELLO GRAN BERRIES! Who is the quickest berry? What type of hat would a goose wear?!! Where is the cat, and who should watch out for it? Who will score the winner when the berries play football? STRAWBERRY SCOREBERRIES is a fab fun picture book for little ones to enjoy. Some "extra time" activities too, including colouring in the berries, a berry-themed word search and berry facts

I really hope little ones have fun with this. I'm a big kid and it made me chuckle! 😁

Ooooh, Loads of Starfish Books!

 Now, that's a site for starry eyes.

I've been waiting a few days for my author copies to arrive, ready to dish out to some friends (ones with little kiddywinks, of course!) A couple are for competitions too, and I'll keep a copy for myself to go alongside the proof copies and other editions. 

If you want to get your hands on The Christmas Starfish it is on sale on Amazon. If you have read it and enjoyed it I would very much appreciate if you could leave a nice review on Amazon. Thanks! 😊

So, for book-lovers looking for a festive book for the kids (or grandkids) of all ages, checkout The Christmas Starfish, featuring Mr. Starfish, on Amazon.

Another book launch

 Actually this one snuck past me! I knew it was coming up, but somehow I missed the notification that it was out there. Which is a shame, because it includes one of my favourite flash fiction stories I have written. It's called "Always Read The Label: Caring For Your Smalls And Delicates" and is (in my opinion) a delightful little slice of utter nonsense, which was the purpose of the writing challenge!

Want to buy it? Here you go!
