My postie had a present for me this morning – my author copies of Frogs: Awesome Amphibians.
It doesn’t matter how many books I have published, the thrill of holding the first copy of a new ‘baby’ doesn’t diminish. I was home alone, so jumped into the car and raced around to work (the local school) where it was recess time, so I could share my news. Lots of enthusiastic responses, which is nice. The best bit was actually walking across the playground from the carpark, where I was surrounded by some year three and four students wanting to know if I was carrying my new book (I’d told them about it last week). Their excitement made my own all the sweeter.
So, the book. I’m really happy with the finished product. It’s A4 soft-cover format, which make sit easy to read, with good sized text and loads of beautiful colour photos and illustrations. And, of course, my name on the cover, which is always a thrill.
