Bologna videos

I’ve uploaded two Bologna videos to my You Tube account, one still to come. So far I’ve uploaded some video of the illustrators wall and a video of the launch party for the Great Big Book of Families, written by Mary Hoffman and illustrated by Ros Asquith and published by Frances Lincoln.

Things I read on the internet

The Guardian asked writers for their ten rules for writing (part one and part two available here). I like lots of bit and pieces of advice and might take one rule from each author. But overall I liked this advice the best: Ian Rankin 1 Read lots. 2 Write lots. 3 Learn to be self-critical. […]

2010: welcome to the future

Happy new year to everyone! This post is 19 days late because I began the new year with a stinking cold and I didn’t even go out and play in the snow which has been 8 inches deep or more across Oxford. Here’s a view of my garden from my window. I only went out […]

Blogging Sisterhood Award

I have been given a Blogging Sisterhood Award by Scribble City Central. Lucy Coats writes: “Rhiannon has directed me to all sorts of wonderful places I never would have discovered without her. And she really (no, I mean REALLY) knows her stuff on the book front. A goldmine of interesting information. At least it is […]

Categories problem

I’ve just discovered that a category search takes you to every blog with that category, not just mine. This is rather irritating. I have a support enquiry in with wordpress but if you’re getting surprising search results, that’s why. ETA: Apparently I needed to turn on the categories widget. Have now done this and all […]
