Post-publication Update

First of all, I really hope you're enjoying your copies of Rory Hobble and the Voyage to Haligogen. Remember, when you've finished it, please do leave a review and/or rating on Amazon here - reviews on Amazon are really important for helping make the book more visible on the platform.

In terms of progress, I'm continuing to reach out to organisations and plug away. I'm going to be reviewed in WRD Magazine, which is a children's book publication (ideal!), Social Work News and I'm also going to be a featured interview in the December edition of PaperBound Magazine (another children's publication). I was also up in a vote for Book of the Month - July on the website of a very prominent children's book blogger who works closely with the big publishing houses, which was a nice touch as well.

I'll keep you posted with further developments as they happen but, for now, I'll leave you with some snaps of Rory Hobble in Waterstones (I make sure to sign copies as and when I can!):
