12 Nov 2022 - Finally recovered from Covid and back on the ball - so to speak. New book for Sebastian Stumblebum titled The Cronkle almost ready for launch - just waiting final proof. Also finishing a new Chapter Book for a new author friend about her life spent in Jakarta as a child. It’s a great read with dangerous butterflies, poisonous snakes and man-eating dragons in it.

November is a very busy month for me as I am judging three lots of writing competitions for a writing association down in Australia. This is the third year I have done this so that is going to be great fun. And talking of competitions The Page Turner Awards presentation ceremony will be taking place this week so it means the additional of at least one new mentee to my school of Mentees. Exciting times ahead.

The Mentoring Writers podcast downloads are continuing to increase and MW has just launched the 2023 Mentoring Writing Competition. Details can be found on their website mentoringwriters.co.uk

That’s it for now folks. I have lots of new things planned for 2023 so for now its back to the laptop and reviewing those stories for the writing competitions. Good Luck to all entrants.
