WBD cometh

Every year just like other festivities...

Yet, we have the same enquiries...

As it's WBD soon can you find us an author?

Well, yes, but...

Some authors are booked a year or even more in advance and WBD is actually 28 days and why not just make books and reading a joy anytime with or without an author (illustrators are just as relevantly cool).

Sadly too, it's all about Branding as Prigs and Prancesses from ye bigge shoppes and not, go to a library, treasure hunt as we now call that...

or actually spending time reading out loud and sharing stories and even writing and illustrating them too.

OK, some do it well, others panic and decide they'd better join in, how can we make it work?

Easily!
Bring a love of reading and books to all as often as possible and make it stand out as cool, clever, different and not boring, if it is boring it's usually down to another perennial chestnut, 'speciality' or 'needs' and for me over indulgence on many levels that aren't good, rather than ones that are. 

Another issue is 'costs', there is never a budget always a need. So often when I explain that we humble bookies need to eat, drive and live... I get puzzled expressions of 'well, we thought it was just your job?'
Yes, it is, but one most of us don't get paid for...

But... we all know all this...
