What a week it’s been. I feel as though I’ve been here, there and everywhere – when, in actual fact, I’ve been pretty much at my computer, working on a new adult novel and eyeing off the typeset pages of book two in The Mapmaker Chronicles series.
They arrived on Wednesday and I’ve managed, so far, to open the envelope and think about starting…
In the meantime, I thought I’d just put together a little wrap-up of some of the posts I’ve taken part in this week…
•There’s lots of info for writers in these two:
The Creative Life with Miscellaneous Mum
Thursday Talk and Tea with Zanni Louise
•If you’re looking for new reading material for your boys, you might enjoy:

•I loved this review by the actual 10-year-old boy who runs the Bookapedia blog (have a look through his reviews for kid-friendly book ideas)
And I’d like to thank Maxabella for the image on today’s post, featuring the feedback on the book from her kids. I think I’m ready to crack the ‘cool Aunty Al’ title now – it’s been YEARS in the making, I tell you.
I’ve already sent out several bookmarks this week, so thanks to everyone who’s shared their ‘shelfie’ of The Mapmaker Chronicles so far. Don’t forget to tag me if you put an image on Twitter or Facebook so I can send you one, too!
