Yes, that's right. Tania and I are packing our bags and heading on tour. And not just any old tour, a 'Camp Max Book Launch Tour'!
What's a Book Launch Tour, you ask?
Well, it's a series of book launch events, structured as author visits suitable for schools or children's clubs, to help celebrate and introduce children to a new book. AND the fees for this type of visit are discounted.
For a Camp Max Book Launch Tour, readers get a chance to hear the inside story behind the writing of this particular adventure, explore the themes of generosity and friendship the novel celebrates and ask heaps of questions. There's also 'hot-off-the-press' opportunities to buy Camp Max and get it personally signed as it is being launched!
The official Camp Max publication day is 15th March, and Camp Max Book Launch Visits will be available for Term 1 and 2 only.
Get in touch if you'd like to book your school or group in to participate. Spaces on the tour are limited, but I'd hate anyone to miss out!
