A brief post today, because, again, I’m busy and because there are trains to catch and people to phone and workshops to plan and general things to do.
The 150 Words Competition has now closed and it’s had a remarkable response. I still can’t quite believe how many entries we’ve had – huge thanks to everyone who took the time to write things for it. I can’t wait to start reading them.
There’s a lovely review from the ever-wonderful Bookmonsters here. Here’s an extract (click here for the full review):
“Nik’s Beautiful series of books aren’t just books with pictures, they are pieces of art, an education and most of all they are heartfelt writing at its best. Beautiful Trees follows the story of Alexandra and Lily’s relationship, but what is so fantastically clever about the book, is the way in which their story parallels and intertwines with their love of a huge variety of different and beautiful trees.”
And, because said Bookmonsters (who were on here a little while ago) are ever-wonderful they’re running a competition too – to be in with a chance of winning a signed copy of Beautiful Trees have a look here.
I notice, too, that there’s an article up on the presentation we did with the junior writers at Ecclesall Library a couple of weeks ago – I’ll talk about that in greater detail very soon (big thanks to Jack Denisov for that).
