Competition Winner Congratulations to Stanley of my Millbrook Garden centre visit. Stanley's flower was chosen from over 400 to appear in my next book Dorothy May. Well Done!
Schools tour 2016/2017
Following an approach from a friend, Tommy Bird, at Simple education links have been made for Joseph to make 32 Primary school appearances across Southern England. At these visits Joseph will be sharing his journey as an author, reading his stories and inspiring children to be creative writers...with perhaps a bit of ukulele playing along the way!
To date Joseph has already visited 5 of the schools and each and everyone has been a massive success. Teachers, parents and pupils have commented on how engaging the visits have been and have all said the visits were an amazing experience for the children.
Lords Wood reading
Joseph visited Lords wood leisure centre and carried out a fantastic reading to over 70 children. They were all so engaged and had some amazing questions to ask after Joseph had read the story. "Do you own a helicopter?" was a personal favourite of the author. It was a great day and enjoyed by everyone.
Oh, and he doesn't own a helicopter if anyone was wondering!
Book launch success Saturday saw the start of Lydia Greenfingers adventure. 115 copies sold at one signing session - more than Martina Cole and Richard Madley at the same store in WHSmith Bluewater. WHSmith took all remaining books, another 35 to have on shelf in store at Bluewater too. Could not of asked for any more from the day. Some lovely reviews and pictures being sent back in to me as well. Thank you for everyone that helped and came on the day to buy the book.
