|Brilliant World Of Tom Gates is SHORTLISTED for the Southwark Book Awards|
Guess what... Tom Gates is only on another shortlist for the
SOUTHWARK BOOK AWARDS! Good company too. I met the author of the Doughnut Diaries in Glasgow (Anthony McGowan) his books are very funny too.
AND I forget to say THANK YOU to all the children who took part
of The BOOK FACTOR AWARDS arranged by SIMPLY BOOKS and VOTED for The Brilliant World Of TOM GATES! I did a little video thank you and a sneaky look around my messy shed. But it's not uploading...I'll put it up another time.
Met up with an old friend Lawrence and his partner and kids who Mark and I knew from JIVE RECORDS (where I used to work years ago in a portacabin). He was in great form! I have some good photos from JIVE days that I must dig out. The ones with the cardboard cut out of Rick Astley are worth sharing...
Here are a few pictures from Sunday which was ACE.
|Storyfest and hay.|
|And the winners are...|
|Brian Moses - writer, poet and performer - |
and I gave out prizes to children who had
entered various competitions.
|Stupidly forgot it was being held being held in a field...with mud. So left my fancy shoes to one side.|
See if you can guess who the
organisers are from their
photos on the STORYFEST website!
|SUCH a good idea! They were working very hard making|
up poems to order.
