A Few Happenings

A few interesting things have happened over the last few weeks.

On the weekend of October 23 I travelled to Canberra for the launch of Robert Ingpen’s new book Wonderlands. I had also been asked to speak at the event about working with Robert as an author. My speech went over well and I managed to get a few copies of Radio Rescue signed by him while there.

Last week I spent a day at Pt Elliot Primary School for an author visit. Spoke to classes from Yr 2-7 and once again they were all very receptive and interested.

This week my school Eastern Fleurieu School, Strathalbyn R-6, hosted Katrina Germein as a visiting author. She presented to groups from Reception to Year 6 and had some fun activities for the students to participate in. On Friday afternoon we did a road trip to the Milang R-6 Campus where she presented to the whole school.

I think all of my own author visits for this year are over but already I am pencilling in dates for next year.

Sally Heinrich and I are meeting this Tuesday to have a look at Papa Sky and mull over a few fine details with our publisher Anna Solding from MidnightSun Publishing. Papa Sky is due to be released in August 2017.

Tomorrow I am booked in to the ABC studios at Collingwood to do an interview for ABC Radio Canberra and ABC Radio Melbourne, and then I have a phone interview with Radio 5AA in the afternoon with Jeremy Cordeaux.

On Wednesday I am doing a phone interview with Radio 4RO 990 AM which is a Queensland station and then on Saturday and interview with Cath Kenneally at Radio Adelaide for the Arts Breakfast Programme.

The following Thursday I am doing a phone interview with Barry Nicholls from ABC Radio WA on his Statewide Afternoons Programme.

These interviews have all been organised by the publicity machine behind Radio Rescue.

  1. That’s awesome, Jane. You are very busy. Author visits are always very special. I’m sure the children and their teachers appreciate your visit very much. I hope you get some time for writing among all the interviews!

  2. Lots of great things going on Jane. I’m looking forward to the realease of your picture book, Papa Sky. And also looking forward to getting my hands on Radio Rescue. What a great title.
