It's a double whammy for news today! I have finally ventured into the realms of Createspace and Larry the Liger - the Winter Surprise is now available to order from Amazon as a print book. It is also available at other stores and I hope to arrange for local libraries to lend it too! In case you aren't familiar with this story it is a lovely winter's tale where we find the liger cub wondering who he will play with as all his friends go inside for the winter. There is a surprise in store for little Larry which makes for a magical ending to this seasonal story. Not sure it can compete with the Sainsbury's Christmas Ad though! It is available now on all Amazon territories IN PRINT (in case you missed it!!)
The second bit of news is brand new excitement as I am finally unleashing my new series of illustrated rhyming books on the world! I wrote the Things With... series when my first child was a baby and she is now almost 7 years old so they have been a long time coming, you could say. I am very proud of these rhymes and they mean a lot as my late Dad got to read them. Sadly he only got to read one of the ten Larry the Liger stories...
Things with Wings is the first illustrated rhyming book in the series and is available to download as an eBook from Amazon. I am working on the print version and will let you know as soon as this is available. It will look fantastic in print as it is beautifully, and humorously, illustrated by the talented Des Campbell, who also illustrated Larry the Liger.
With Things with Wings you can share a rhyming adventure learning all about winged things. The illustrations and rhymes are great fun for any age group so it makes for a great book to read to the children. Each illustration has an extra thing with wings to find so it should engage most children... and adults!
I am very happy to have finally got Things with Wings published on Amazon. I really hope you check it out and I would love to know what you think. The next in the series are coming soon along with the print option.

In other news I have been planning parties and making party bags. I have been preparing party games and buying party food. My youngest daughter, Amy, was 4 on Wednesday and it is her party tomorrow. She is very excited and I can only hope all my planning pays off and makes it a seamless 1 1/2 hours! My eldest daughter, Ella, is 7 in December so I have been buying lots of sweeties to make lovely sweet filled, cellophane cones with lots of ribbon! I am enjoying being creative once again.
What a great way to end the week. I hope you will join me by reading my new creation in Things with Wings and why not order the print version of The Winter Surprise too. Happy weekend everyone.
My next journey has begun...
