Total immersion in children's books

Posted by kate Poels on Wednesday, March 23, 2016
I think that if it's possible to overdose on children's fiction then I am currently in a bit of danger.
Yesterday evening I was in London for the monthly book group held at Nosy Crow. It is brilliant being part of a group that only discusses children's books (and its held at the Crow's Nest which is always an exciting trip!)
Today I signed my children and I up for yet another talk at the Oxford Literary Festival in April.....that makes 4 talks now but when you get the chance to be creative with Abi Elphinstone and Chris Riddell you take it!
Spent the day in the attic again (I am loving my Wednesday days off at the moment!) polishing submissions for the Winchester Writers Festival and then began writing my third rhyming picture book.
Ordered a copy of the Clockwork Sparrow to take to FCBG conference next week where Katherine Woodfine will be speaking and then sat on Twitter for an hour talking author school visits as part of fortnightly UKMG chat.
Now off for a lie down (with Jenny McLachlan's latest book 'StarStruck.')
