I am sooooo overdue to post news. Sorry, team. I can’t think back over all the details I’ve missed this year but here are the recent highlights: Stray is a finalist in the Children’s Choice category of the New Zealand Book Awards for Children and Young Adults. I am completely stoked! You can vote for your favourites by clicking here.

I am so impressed with the advertising, posters, pamphlets and social media attention the #NZCYA’s are getting this year and it’s wonderful to see local bookshops supporting the awards finalists in store. Great display in Whitcoulls Nelson at the moment.

The other big excitement this month: Walker Books Australia are taking me to Auckland from June 28th – July 3rd, for six school visits, a public event at Time Out bookstore and a bunch of schmoozy meetings with booksellers. WOWSERS! If you are free Thursday 30th of June, 4-5pm COME AND SEE ME!!! This will be a fun event for YA enthusiasts, writers and aspiring writers.

    The one time I don’t check the website and I miss this! So upset I missed it (also, do blog posts come via email as well? I’ve never gotten one ;-;) I don’t suppose you’d be visiting Botany Downs Secondary College?? Oh well, hope you enjoy your stay in Auckland!

      Oh! Guy <3 I'm so sorry. I don't send email notifications for blog posts because I don't like to spam people. Plus I'm pretty random/irregular about when I post. 🙁 Auckland was hectic but great. I'm so sorry I missed you. Maybe next time!!! Xxx
