It was a real joy to take part in the Northern Children’s Book Festival Gala Day in Middlesborough alongside so many authors and performers (I wont list them in case I miss anyone and upset them!).
I had a ‘Sell-Out’ audience (the tickets were free, but I’m still calling it that!) and they were brilliant. They even laughed and clapped in the appropriate places! What more could a guy ask for?
I got to chat with readers, fellow authors, sign books and meet lots (and lots) of enthusiastic librarians, booksellers and fantastic volunteers. Click here for a Storify selection of tweets and pics.
A totally wonderful day!
