It’s Thursday, and time for another TBT (Throwback Thursday) post.
Last week I shared a picture of my first ever copy of my first ever book.
This week I thought I’d share one of copies I still own, of my very first trade book (ie a book which you could, potentially, buy in a bookshop). Here it is:
Doggy Duo was special to me because it was, as I’ve said, my first ever trade-published book, and its acceptance came after years and years of trying to break into writing for children.
Sadly, the company which published it (Banana Books) went into receivership not long after the book was published, meaning it didn’t get a long life on bookstore shelves, but 11 years down the track, I still remember the thrill of that acceptance and holding that book in my hands. (And, as you can see, I still have lots of copies, so can hold it in my hands any time I like!)
Have a great Thursday!
