It has been a while since I sent our last newsletter and lots have been happening here at Spies Publishing! It's always hectic when you launch a new book and try to get it out there. But I'm happy to say that we have been receiving some great reviews for Ben's latest book - The World of Greek Mythology! I'm sharing a few below in this letter. Check them out. Ben also had a small feature in The Week Junior Magazine from the UK, where he shares his love for books and writing. He is extremely happy about it as it's one of his favourite magazines and he's been a subscriber for a few years!
If you've been following our Facebook page you would know by now that Ben is writing a new book! Yay! And we need you! Yes, we need some advance readers to read the book before anyone else (yes, you will have it first!!) and let Ben know what you thought of it - a true feedback that Ben will take into consideration and may accept your ideas before publishing it!
And last, but not least..... I've ALWAYS wanted to help other children to have their own books. Just like what I did for Ben. I have been approached by many parents asking if I could publish their children's stories too. And I'm super excited to say we now can!! Keep reading to find out how your young author can now have their own book!

Nice to see Ben sharing his love for books and his passion for writing with the British readers! If you're in the UK, The Week Junior is a brilliant current affairs magazine for children aged between 8 and 14. It’s filled with fascinating stories and information, written to engage curious young minds and encourage them to explore and understand the world around them.

MY FIRST BOOK
Most of you know how long I've been waiting for the opportunity to create books for other children. When I gave Ben his first book, I saw in his eyes something I will never forget. Pride. Ben was so proud of his story becoming a book that he never stopped writing after that. I strongly believe that children should be rewarded for what they love doing and put a lot of effort on. It's easy to reward a child who loves paying soccer or rugby. So many certificates are given to the best players. It's easy to reward a child who loves acting. There are many plays in the end of the year. And for a child who loves playing an instrument, we go and watch them in their concert. But what about a child who loves writing? It's a lonely journey to write your stories on the computer and have no one to share with. I experienced this with Ben. But once their story can be printed into a book, there's a chance they can share with families and friends and be proud too for their achievement. I'm so happy I can now help these children and create their first book! Click the image below and I will tell you how...
Helen and I made a video to introduce you to MY FIRST BOOK.

A bit more about Brain Bunny:
At Brain Bunny Workshops, the classes are focused on teaching kids how to write creatively. They instill a love of story telling, rather than focusing on spelling and grammar, helping children gain confidence in their creative writing skills.
