πŸ“š πŸŽ„ πŸ˜ƒ It’s Going To Be A Hardback Christmas! πŸ˜ƒ πŸŽ„ πŸ“š

Along with the wonderful Christmas cards that have been arriving at our family home in the wonderful county of Wiltshire, there have also been boxes of hardbacks of my 1st 7 ‘Whimsy Wood’ children’s books, arriving directly from the publisher, Abela Publishing. πŸ“š

I was absolutely delighted when Abela Publishing were keen to produce hardback copies of my woodland books for 5-8 year olds and, I know I’m biased, but they really do look and feel pretty darn fantastic! ✨ If you’d like to purchase a hardback copy of ‘Posie Pixie And The Christmas Tree’ in time for Christmas, then please click on this link. Thank you. 😊 http://www.amazon.co.uk/POSIE-PIXIE-CHRISTMAS-TREE-Whimsy/dp/1910882615/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1449494997&sr=1-1&keywords=Posie+Pixie+And+The+Christmas+Tree

Incase you’re not familiar with ‘Posie Pixie And The Christmas Tree’, then here’s an extract for you to get you in the festive spirit:-

‘ ….That night, with Wibble curled up by her feet in the matchbox bed, Posie dreamt of a huge snow-kissed Christmas tree that filled her copper kettle house. It had beautiful red and white baubles hanging from its branches and twinkly, sparkly tinsel spiralling down from top to bottom.

By dawn the next morning, Posie was up and dressed in her purple pixie tunic, leggings and boots. She’d eaten her hot porridge with honey and drunk her nettle tea. As she was putting on her ice-blue duffle coat, Wibble scuttled into the kitchen. ….’

Well, that’s all from me for now. Christmas baking and present wrapping is calling! 🎁

Wishing you a wonderfully whimsical week. 😊

✨ πŸ˜ƒ πŸŽ„ ‘Tis The Season To Be Jolly! πŸŽ„ πŸ˜ƒ βœ¨

” ‘Tis the season to be jolly, tra-la-la-la-laaa-la-la-la-la!

Time to decorate everything with holly, tra-la-la-la-laaa-la-la-la-la!”

That’s right! Christmas 2015 is rapidly approaching and I’m sure it will be very cheeky and sneak right up on us when we’re not looking! I for one, am certainly not ready for it just yet! Too much to do, with too little time left to do it all in…. I believe that may be the standard sentence for all fraught folks at this time of year!

Anyway, thankfully I am marginally more organised when it comes to my writing and the wonderful world of ‘Whimsy Wood’. We were certainly all set and ready to go, before the start of Seend Primary School’s Christmas Fair last Friday. I had a wonderful time supping mulled wine and hot chocolate, whilst signing copies of my ‘Whimsy Wood’ series, in both their paperback and hardback forms! A fabulously festive evening! Thank you Seend Primary School. 😊

The most requested ‘Whimsy Wood’ book currently is ‘Posie Pixie And The Christmas Tree’ of course. According to Santa’s Elves, no stocking will be complete without a copy this Christmas! πŸ˜ƒ

In this fifth, festive instalment, you’ll meet ‘Florence Fox’, who is Whimsy Wood’s fun tom-boy. She lends a helping paw to Posie Pixie who gets herself in a bit of pickle. Here’s Florence having a bit of a chuckle! πŸ˜ƒ

There’s also ‘Mr Bilberry the blackbird’, Whimsy Wood’s postman, who’s terribly busy at this time of year, as I’m sure you can imagine! Mr Bilberry is very proud ofΒ his postal job as it’s been in his family for generations.

“The Posie Pixie series is simply enchanting. Light up Christmas in a little one’s life with this magical story about finding and decorating the all important tree! The descriptions really engage small imaginations with the help of adorable drawings. I am looking forward to reading this latest instalment to my niece and daughter. Definitely one for the stocking this year!”

Well, I’d best go and attempt to tick off as many things from my ‘To Do’ list before bedtime!

Wishing you a wonderfully whimsical week! 😊✨
