2013 Child Writes Comp' Winners
Write it WRITE NOW! Workshops

A wonderful article about the McCullough girls in the Isolated Children's and Parents Association newsletter... Kate won last year's competition and has finished being mentored by Emma writing her latest book 'The Lost Calf'.  Charlotte de Laine is illustrating this book, as part of her prize for the illustration section.  Another title, 'In the Waves' has been written by Kate and is being illustrated by her sister, Stacey.  It will be released as an eBook in November.  

Two wonderful workshops were held in June; firstly at the Gold Coast as a prelude to the Gold Coast Writers Festival on the 10th - 12th of June, and then in Toowoomba on the 26th-28th of June.  Thank you thank you thank you to Jeannie, Vacen, Penelope, Pamela, Deb, Brenda, Marilyn, Marilyn, Deb, Tina, Kate, Teresa and Laura.  The wisdom and enthusiasm you all bought to the table was extraordinary.  It was a privilege to be able to share Child Writes with you...

Don't just take my word for it ...
Coming soon 'IMAGINE' ... 
Amazing eBooks on AMAZON ...

So excited to have independent reviews in for Child Writes: Creating a Children's Picture Book is Child's Play.  The formidable reviewers at know their stuff.  What is extra special is most of the reviews are by other writers, so they are in the ideal spot to comment!

Sometimes you want to pinch yourself when you see the magic that is created by a talented illustrator and a graphic designer!  Loving the 'team' to pieces!  Ester de Boer brings energy to the text and Michelle von Pein finishes it brilliants.  'Imagine' is due for release, November 2014...

The entire Chlld Writes library is now available in hardcopy as POD via our own website and as eBooks from Amazon. We are delighted to share Justin Laine, Oscar Thelander, Sarah Mactaggart, Harvey Houlahan, Nicholas Rowan and Rani Brennan all sold books...   

Three years ago, Emma started a local writers group - called the Toowoomba Wordsmiths.  Whilst she has been an absentee member this year, in the previous years, she was fortunate to meet many fabulous, talented locals... Kyle Buchanan being one of them.  His insights into eBooks and his business Brink Publishing, are directly responsible for ensuring Child Writes is the LARGEST publisher of children's picture books written by children in the WORLD!  How cool is that!

Keeping in touch - one 'like' at a time!
The more you use something, the better you get using it! We are getting a little slicker each day using Facebook and am finding it an awesome way to share images from workshops, book updates, and now,  we want to do a 'sales' update from Amazon for all the Child Writes authors.  'Like' today (and encourage the person sitting beside you to too!)  It really is a great way to stay in touch...
