Not content with two blogs (this one and Pemberty’s Ponderings), two websites (my author site and Aussiereviews), last night I decided to have a go at Squidoo, and created a new lens Rhyme Time, which focuses on rhyming books for children. At present it’s mostly a collection of links, but I’m thinking I might also include some reviews of rhyming books. I’m pretty passionate about good rhyme.
The discussion of the A & R issue continues. The Australian Society of Authors (ASA) has issued a statement urging bookbuyers to boycott Angus & Robertson stores.
On Making Light Teresa Nielsen Hayden has blogged about the two letters, and generated lots of discussion. Finally on Crikey, A & R has posted a response, ‘setting the record straight’.
In the meantime, as I said in my last post Children’s Book Week is coming up. Yesterday I stuffed thirty envelopes with Pemberthy Bear bookmarks to send to local schools to celebrate the big week. So if you’re in a school closish to Corrigin, look out for them.
