I should also add that it’s for ages 6-9 and, as a lot of its content is based on the national curriculum, it’s ideal for anyone who’s studying key stage 1 or 2 history and literacy.

Small writing.

And for those of you (like me) who don’t have a large monitor or (again like me) have less than perfect eye sight, here’s the blurb:

Jack doesn’t like going to bed. He’d rather stay up, playing on his computer, watching television and discovering things.
Nothing exciting could possibly happen once you’re in bed, could it?
Maybe it could, because when he goes to sleep, something extraordinary happens; Jack travels back in time!
He meets Vikings and Anglo-Saxons; helps to write the Domesday Book; and almost gets involved in a battle between Romans and an angry tribe of Celts!



A little bit of shameless self promotion. It is very good though! You can pre-order it here.

I’ve been reliably informed that it’s available through play.com too, as well as all good book stores.

Hello. I’m Nik Perring, a writer of children’s fiction.

I’m quite new to this blogging business, but I’m sure I’ll get the hang of it before too long.

Here are a couple of links to get going.

Click here to visit my website.

And here to pre-order my book, for 6-10 years olds, I Met a Roman Last Night, What Did You Do? which is due out on September 29th.

I’ve also contributed to this poetry anthology A Bedtime Poem for Every Day of the Year, which is due out at a similar time. I’ll let you know more as soon as I know myself.

That’s it for now. Back to the writing for me.

Cheers,

Nik.
