I'm very excited about the up-coming launch of my new book 'Singing Home the Whale' - so much so I just had to share the cover with you to whet your appetite!
It's due to be released in NZ 5th September and I'll have a delayed launch (or two) when I arrive back in New Zealand. The first is planned for Wednesday 15th October at the marvellous Children's Bookshop in Kilbirnie, Wellington 5.30 - 6ish, when I'll also have the chance to talk a little about the great French experience! If you are in town do please come along. It's always nice to welcome a new book properly into the world (just as I'll be welcoming grandchild No. 1 on my arrival home as well!)
I'm proud of this book. It's very different from anything I've written before and has really pushed me as a writer. I hope you'll read it and love it as much as I do! And it's got the most amazing drawings by my daughter Rose Lawson in it! Go to the dedicated page on this site (see the link button above this post) and take a sneak preview!
