We are delighted to be sharing with you all of our latest achievements here at Spies Publishing.
Over the past few months, since the launch of "The Magic Pencil", we have been growing our distribution slowly throughout the Wellington region and we now have eight locations selling our books. This is such a big steps for our little business! Added to that, we also have a few locations nationwide and we're working hard to have as many bookstores as we can on board in different cities, so it will be easier for you to access our books. You can see our locations by clicking on the link below. And remember, you can order our books from our website too!
This month, we have been featured in the Spring Issue of Family Times magazine. It was great to see the magazine celebrating the young talents in New Zealand and an interview with Ben. The Magic Pencil was chosen as the editor's pick for the issue. See full article below.
We've been overwhelmed recently with all the requests from schools for Ben to talk about his book. However, as much as we would love for Ben to attend all of these, he is still a school child and cannot miss his school days. With this in mind, I've developed a program where I visit the schools and share my experience of publishing Ben's books. I also talk about how I've nurtured and motivated him to keep writing. Children will also watch a video of Ben himself giving some writing tips and answering previously arranged questions. This is a great opportunity for students to relate to a young author and be inspired like many others have been. If you would like to arrange a school visit please contact us using the form on our website.
With best wishes,
Thank you to all bookshops supporting Spies Publishing and stocking our books. A special thank you to "The Children's Bookshop" in Kilbirnie, Wellington for including us in their newsletter and doing a review of The Magic Pencil last month. You can see full review here.
