New: Author Hotline

I'm mainly using this week to catch up on boring admin stuff again. Yaaaaawn...

One interesting thing though - I spent quite a while yesterday building my page on the brand new Author Hotline website, to be launched for World Book Day on March 4th.

It's aimed at kids, so I had fun answering lots of questions like: 'What were you like at school?' and 'What strange habits do you have?'. There are serious questions too, like: 'What are the best and worst things about being an author?'

The idea is that, either before or after a school visit, children can look up authors or illustrators and find out more about them. They can show their parents who they met at school and generally add value to the experience of the visit.

If you do school visits and want to register, it's all free, so get on over there...
