Spooktacular Stories launched…

spooktacular book launch good witch jill casting spellThe Spooktacular book launch yesterday 12th October 2019 was great fun. Lots of book signing, kids activities, face painting and best of all l met many talented creative people who inspire me. Here are some pictures courtesy of Maria of SCBWI and the proud aunt of the youngest author in the book. All the authors who attended read snippets of their stories to the engrossed audience.

My own copy of this great book is signed by-

Michelle Worthington – Share My Story host Sandra Bennett, Trish Donald, John Drake, M J Gibbs, Karen Hendricks, Jennifer Horn, Alison McLennan, and June Perkins. I think I missed a couple of creatives who were there but hope to catch up with them another time.

I’m delighted to say the books flew off the shelves and the hosts at The Mad Hatters Bookshop provided a wonderfully enchanting venue.

To cap it all off my fellow Ten Penners, Marion Martineer and Kate Russell were able to travel up to Manly from the Gold Coast. No mean feat on a day with heavy rain that was truly wonderful to see but terrible to drive in. It was an amazing day! – Jill
