Hello all and welcome to the final Spies Publishing Newsletter for 2018. I hope this finds you well and that you're all looking forward to a lovely summer holiday with friends and family.
I would like to say a HUGE thank you to all of you who came to our book launch for The World of Greek Mythology. It has been a labour of love over the past year and Ben and I were extremely happy to be able to have shared it with you. We have already been receiving emails and reviews about the book and with some of the readers asking when Ben's next book is coming out! So thank you, thank you and thank you for your kind and generous support this year. Some pictures of the day below.
I just wanted to finish wishing you and your family a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year filled with love, peace, health and lots of reading!
Our Book Launch for "The World of Greek Mythology" was a combined event with author and children's tutor Helen Vivienne Fletcher, who was also launching her latest book - "The Trespassers Club." Helen was also the editor for Ben's book.

Welcome to our new retailers Paper Plus Wanaka in the South Island and Dynamo Kidswear and Gifts on the Kapiti Coast, who are now stocking our books. You can see a full list of our retailers and bookshops on our website.
We were extremely honoured to have been invited to the launch of Marie Munro's new book - Bella's Fringe - a beautiful picture book. This humorous story about Bella's hair continues with the search activities in te reo Māori that appeared in "Nana's Shed” and extends the counting in English and te reo to 20. A great gift for this Christmas. You can get a copy of Bella's Fringe here.
