Kids - I need your help! I want loads of brilliant questions from 4 - 14 year olds that I can put to professionals across the publishing industry. I'll compile their answers into a series of features on the site that will hopefully help us to really understand how a book goes from the first word on a scrap of paper to a shelf in your local library.

Teachers, why not set this as a class activity and I can credit your school and maybe publish their photo on the site if you would like that. Or kids - check with an adult then get in touch direct. There are 'contact me' boxes all over the website so don't be shy - tell me what it is you want to know and I'll try and get the answers for you.

Parents - There's no such thing as a stupid question so join in by sending me anything your children want to know and watch this space for the answers which I'll post as follows:-

A Day At the Desk Of ...

January - author

February - editor

March - illustrator

April - Translator

May - Cover designer

June - Literary agent

July - printer

August - Promoter

September - Publisher

October - Librarian

November - Book Shop Owner/Manager

December - Book Reviewer

I will enjoy being inundated with inspired enquiries!

Our Castle By The Sea

Growing up in a lighthouse, 11-year-old Pet's world has been one of storms, secret tunnels, and stories about sea monsters.  


Teachers - have you discovered @BookPenPals? A new initiative pairing authors & illustrators with schools to make reading recommendations via postcards. They're pretty oversubscribed, but if you're interested it might be worth getting your name on the waiting list. They have some fabulous authors on board.
