Hi Angela
congrats on your book "Pond Magic"
Hope it's the first of many.

Thanks for the compliment! Or should I say Professor Zell, the true Creator of Seraph, says thanks. Professor Zell has created many other creatures which I, being an envoy of Zell's Character Factory as well as Jelly's world in Cratersville, will have the privilege of sharing with our world. :)

Congratulations Angela - you have the talent, now there's the need to get out there.

Comment by Susanne Gervay on 7/16/2009 at 1:07 PM:
The parallel importation of books is a shocker - why destroy a vibrant publishing industry which ahs taken 50 years to establish that takes Australian literature to Australians and the world? It's not good for the economy either Mr Rudd.
Comment by aaron pocock on 6/3/2009 at 5:27 PM:
Hi Angela,
Yep, I've pretty much given up the blog. It was a waste of time for me personally. I tried.
I am using Deviantart for all that kind of thing now.

Hope you're well!

Hi Angela, sorry I didn't get back to you earlier - I don't log onto jacketflap very often. The book for 8-10 yr olds I had published was one of the Trekkers series published by Macmillan back in 2005 (or maybe 2006). I hope you enjoyed the CYA conference, I didn't go this year but I did hear Margo ... more

That sounds great - I'll go to see the Goethe exhibition at the Waverly Library - the library and Goethe are both very supportive of literature

Hi Angela... Thanks for the comment. So you liked the Bono pixie??? (laughs).
Ummm, I don't know Tony Champ, is he an illustrator or writer?
Hope the 'waiting game' is starting to pay off for you
