Join me at the Festival.

Blast Off with Space Dust comes to an end

Ritu has kindly taken the helm and is leading us to the final stop at her special blog where there’s a party going on! Treats and a quick video of me reading Space Dust are part of the line up, so don’t miss out.

For the final time, click on the pic!

And now, the end is near…

…And so I face the final curtain
My friend, I’ll say it clear
I’ll state my case, of which I’m certain

I’ve lived a life that’s full
I’ve traveled each and every highway
But more, much more than this
I did it my way.” Frank Sinatra – My Way

As we approach the penultimate stop on our Blast Off with Space Dust Blog Tour, I would like to thank each and every blogger who took the time to host our adventure through the blogosphere. Being an independent author means you have to create waves in the marketing pool using the support and friendships in the community around you, a family of creative writers who all dream the same dream – of leaving the written word out there for the world to enjoy.

Space Dust has certainly been my greatest adventure so far and with their support, it has been a joy to come out of my shell and share my special story with you. Without the inspiration of the great librarians at the Bracknell Forest Libraries, Space Dust would never have come into existence and our Little One wouldn’t have had an adventure through space in Big Ox’s canoe, paddling along with his absolute favourite spoon!

And, of course, I can’t forget you, the reader. Whether or not you’ve read my book and left a review, I appreciate you taking this journey with me and reading my posts. I hope our adventure together will continue and we will journey further into the book market, giving Space Dust a chance to be shared with more readers, more families, more dreamers.

On that note, let’s take a trip to another author’s page, this time it’s Val Neil. She has kindly given us a platform to share a bit more about the story.

About Space Dust

We’re going on a trip in Big Ox’s canoe. Watch the fire bears roar on Venus as pepper pot trees grow on the moon. As Big Ox steers us to the planets, Litte One wonders if Mum will come home soon.

My review for Space Dust

A wonderful journey around the planets in a canoe paddled by a favourite spoon that will delight younger readers, and those reading the story to them. There are beautifully colourful illustrations between the stages of the trip, which will encourage a pause in the storytelling, offering an opportunity to discuss the journey so far. The two main characters, Big Ox and Little One are lovable travel companions as they head off in search of Little One’s mum. and discover creatures…

Space Dust Celebrates National Poetry Day

As a special feature, I thought it might be fun, to create a quick ditty for Big Ox and Little One!

Floating free on the rainbow trail

Big Ox and Little one prepared to set sail

Across the sky on a mission to see

Cheesy Dust and maybe a pepper pot tree.

Using his absolute favourite spoon

Big Ox propelled the boat in the direction of the moon.

“Will we see Mummy today?”

“I don’t see why not. She mentioned needing extra cheese and pepper for her spots.”

“Don’t be silly,” replied Little One, grinning at the joke. “I really want to wave hello, not make silly pokes.”

Happy National Poetry Day!
