Double sunshiney day…

Today I trained it down to Frankston for the YABBA (Young Australian Best Book Awards) announcements. There were students from about ten schools there (I think) in the Frankston Art Centre and about 16 or so authors and illustrators. Also teachers, publishers and the wonderful group of people who administer the awards.

We authors and illustrators were asked to prepare a little (90 seconds we found out as we spoke!) piece on our first publication. It was fascinating to hear the variety of responses and indeed interpretations of the request.

Awards were presented to the winners of the inaugural Write On! writing competition and then the YABBA’s were presented.

After morning tea, we all reconvened in the vibrant Frankston Library for book signings. Great fun.

Well done YABBA committee. Well done YABBA voters. Congratulations YABBA winners. Go here for details.

And in late breaking news…well late to me as I didn’t get home until late…

The Australian government has voted…Parallel Importation Restrictions are to be retained…Australian copyright holders will continue to be protected. For more info on this wonderful news go here
