I’m switching over to a new blog which will allow me to display larger images. Click here to take a look. The new blog has a range of old posts – as well as new stuff. (And don’t forget to follow the RSS feed for news of my first children’s book and progress on books two and three – as well as other weird projects I’m working on.) Go on then.
I just saw this really fun post on the Random House blog about my picture book.
Here the Random House building is under attack.
Here are a couple of Ninjas breaking into the lifts with a pair of forks. Cunning!
And while you’re in the mood for a bit of hyper-link-jumping – I wrote a short column about children’s book writing for an American blog. Read it here.
My picture book, The Boy Who Cried Ninja, was released in America on the 1st of April and to the rest of the world on the 7th of April. I’ve had some lovely reviews of it so far – from adults and children alike. If you love ninjas, time-traveling monkeys, sunburnt crocodiles and astronauts – then this is the book for you. Read some reviews here, here and here.
My first children’s book – The Boy Who Cried Ninja will be released next month. I can hardly believe it. It’s been a lengthy process, but it’s allowed me time to work on my second book as well as my third (both of which are going to be awesome). This is the cover of the Danish edition of the book. It will also be published in hardcover in America by Peachtree Publishers. What fun. I’ll be posting more and more about it as we close in on the launch date.
I created this character, Maynard, for a self-help/self-empowering website called CREATORmakers.com. I could try and explain what its all about, but perhaps its better that you take the hyper jump there to see for yourself. It was a really fun project, as I’m sure you can tell by the illustrations.
