Isn't the year going by really fast?
It's Autumn already and Easter time! Happy Easter!
We at Spies Publishing are absolutely over the moon with the decision to re-launch our first book - Weirdo! As you know, Weirdo is very special to us as it was Ben's first book. Ben wrote it when he was only 9 years old and Robert and I decided to give to him as a present - a reward for his passion for writing. We put it together ourselves and gave to him as a surprise. I will never forget that day. Spies Publishing was born. The rest is history... So, it is with much delight that we announce the re-launch of Weirdo, designed - interior and cover - by the same designers who worked with The Magic Pencil. The book is with the printers as I write this letter, so it will be out very soon!
Check the new cover below. We LOVE it!
You can pre-order your copy at www.spiespublishing.co.nz
Our Press-Release for the re-launch of Weirdo was out this week in the newspapers across the Wellington region. Awesome stuff!
Welcome to our new bookstore in Auckland - The Dorothy Butler Children's Bookshop! The Dorothy Butler Children's Bookshop is a much loved Auckland institution. Currently the only specialist children's bookshop in the city and is now stocking our books. Dorothy Butler, a well known NZ children's writer and literacy expert, established the shop in her home in 1964. In September 2015 the shop was bought by sisters Mary and Helen Wadsworth. Thank you, Mary and Helen, for having our books there! Check this amazing bookstore website:
Summer is such a great time to go out with the family and enjoy the many festivals around the country! Last month we were lucky to be part of two major festivals near us. We delivered our workshop - "Create Your Book' at Coastella Music Festival in Kapiti and the Just So Festival in Kaitoke Park, Upper Hutt - an extraordinary event combining art, music and literature for children and their families. Super fun! Thank you to everyone who came by. We had some amazing feedback from the children. Thank you.
We also would like to thank Johnsonville Library who hosted us for our workshop and Palmerston North city libraries who hosted us to present the workshop to their Summer Readers programme participants. It was lovely to be there!
If you too would like to have our workshop at your library or event, contact us on: firstname.lastname@example.org
