One Step at a Time and Radio Rescue! have both made it into the Hello From Australia Catalogue at the Bologna Children’s Book Fair this year!
This is great exposure for both books and hopefully some overseas rights will be sold during the course of the fair.
Fellow Strathalbyn author and illustrator, Andrew Joyner, is in Bologna at the fair right now and I have Bologna Envy. This is a disease which hits you suddenly when you hear that others are over at Bologna being immersed in the children’s book world…and you aren’t there!
Bologna Envy is hard to shake as you have flashbacks to a time when you were there. And attended all of the book stalls from around the world. And went to publisher’s parties each night. And ate gelato as though the world was ending.
The only way to be cured of Bologna Envy is to go to the fair! And it is too late for me this year…but who knows …maybe next year!
