Lottie, Eagles and Catacombs!

TQ Museum

So Lottie Lipton’s most recent books, The Eagle of Rome and The Catacombs of Chaos are well and truly out in the world now and I’ve had a great time publicizing them. I performed my story games session at Crediton Library, as well as holding a ‘Writing for Children’ workshop for grown-ups. The official launch event was at Torquay Library where I held a Codebreaking session.

Next I’ll be at Torrington Library in Devon on Friday 12th August from 10:30-11:30 for more codebreaking fun, followed by Northam Library from 2pm-3pm. Come join me!

Out and About again

I’ve been a busy little bee these past few weeks and here are some photos to prove it! I’ve been doing some school events local to me and here are a couple of lovely pics from my visit to Burrington School where I spoke to the entire school of 26 pupils (age 4-11), with more than half buying my books.
