Competition Time!

Hillman Publishing are running a competition. Whoop!

Elin’s Air competition time! Between 20th August and 24th September Emily Stanford will be giving you weekly clues (five in all), the answers to which will be hidden in your copy of Elin’s Air. Get them all right and you’ll be in with a chance to win a miniature Welsh Miner’s lamp made by a company in Aberdare, Wales who’ve been manufacturing them since they were invented! To enter the competition, simply email all your answers to books@hillmanpublishing.co.uk by 1st October. In the mean time, Elin’s Air will be available from www.hillmanpublishing.com for only £7.99 until the start of the competition.

Clouds

We are still so impressed by the clouds on the cover of Elin’s Air. Artist Morgan Hebner has managed to capture something that means I frequently look at the clouds now and think to myself “Those are Morgan’s clouds”. One of my daughters expressed the wish she could paint clouds like that. I tried to capture some of Morgan’s clouds with my camera, the other day.

Have a look at her other work at DD’s Art Corner and like her page on Facebook as it is her birthday today. Happy Birthday Morgan, and thank you for sharing your beautiful gift with us and for being a part of the publication of Elin’s Air. You’re wonderful! 

 

Counting the days

When I was little we used to make Sally Worms to count the days down to an exciting event. You tear a segment off each day. This is my Sally Worm, or shall we call it a book worm, that is helping me count the days until Elin’s Air becomes avaliable for purchase. 25 days to go. Although having said that, it will be available slightly earlier from Waterstones, where you can pre-order a copy.
