Takeshita Demons is out in Indonesia, with a new cover! Check out that spooky yuki-onna Snow Woman top-left. *gulp*
What do you think? I’m pretty excited
In other news, Monster Matsuri is being sent to the printers this week.
Plus, I’m four chapters in to a new and exciting book idea. No demons this time, just chickens, fences, a celebrity chef and a shovel.
Note to self: I’d be five chapters in to a new and exciting book idea if I wasn’t writing this post. GO BACK AND WRITE!

GREAT NEWS #8: I spoke to a group of Year 9s and 10s at the Hyogo Prefectural Government Cultural Centre last week about Japanese yokai, mythology, history and how it informed and inspired Takeshita Demons. They were a great group and we had lots of laughs. Plus I got to eat proper Japanese bakery goods AND a scrummy bento. YUM!
So all-in-all a terrific few weeks…Super busy! And this week is the SCBWI WA Christmas Party too, so everything is happening at once. I *LOVE* hanging out with other people who love childrens books!
