Week that was Jan 18th

Last week of holidays - am looking forward to uninterrupted working hours... I might actually finish those two kidlit scripts that I've working on for a few months now.

We have registrations rolling in for the Self-Publishing Workshop March 1st. If you are interested in learning what it takes to get your book ideas published as ebooks and print-on-demand books then this is a fantastic workshop for you.

Last week was Star Wars week in our home - hence the Lego R2D2 pic above. The Auckland City Libraries have quite a few Star Wars early readers which Zac has loved reading. We then sat down to watch all 6 episodes of the franchise and although it took three days, we managed to get through them all - mostly - I skipped the latter part of episode three due to the violence. Safe to say that R2D2 whistles and 'wookie' sounds will made in our house for a while. Bevan has even changed his cell phone to an R2D2 whistle!

We have another workshop coming up April 5th in Auckland on Writing and Illustrating for Children. We can now confirm that children's author Sharon Holt and her talented illustrator Deborah Hinde are presenting at this four hour workshop and we are really excited about working with them both. As a NZ children's self-publisher, Sharon has a wealth of knowledge and experience for anyone who is interested in learning about publishing for kids.

For either workshop, please register your interested by emailing us at

Have a fantastic week, and we'd love to hear how your self-publishing adventures are going. Visit us over at Facebook and leave us a pic of your new self-published book!
