After a full week, I got into work on Friday to see there was a visitor coming in to school to work with the children. After seeing his name, bells started to ring as I realised he was the children’s author: Richard O’Neill. As soon as an opportunity arose, I introduced myself and asked if I could pick his brains about the world of children’s books. He was extremely helpful and gave me some excellent advice. He even asked to see my book and went through it with me during the lunch break. It was amazing to get feedback from a successful storyteller and I was particularly pleased when he said he liked it.
So, the journey continues as I’ve now had more input, which I will heed as I go back and edit my book once more. I’m on a long road but it is a very interesting one as I continue on the cycle of sharing my book, getting feedback and then editing it.
