Blogger Jenni Nock’s top picksPosted: March 17, 2011
I recently took the decision that I wasn’t going think about freelance writing longer I was going to actually do something about it. This workshop sounds pretty perfect for me, Linda’s blog is one I’ve been reading for advice and tips, a workshop with the lady herself would be brilliant.
I’m a huge geek, Whovian and a bit of a fangirl when it comes to Paul Cornell so this item is right up my street. He has written some of my favourite Doctor Who episodes, and has been one of the writers who has helped me to begin exploring the vast world of comics. His novel sounds intriguing, who wouldn’t want a character named after them in it?
Just the cover of this picture book is enough to make me consider bidding, I fell in love with it instantly. The idea of the book, that baby Meg refuses to nap and is slowly turning into a monster is wonderful, I’m sure this will become a firm favourite for whichever family wins the item.
I discovered Hayley Long’s YA series a few weeks ago when I had LOTTIE BIGGS IS NOT MAD recommended to me. I loved it and am looking forward to reading the next two books in the series. I could just imagine the lovely illustration of Lois the Emo on my wall.
Keren was the author behind two of my favourite books of 2010; WHEN I WAS JOE and ALMOST TRUE. I’m currently writing my first novel and the idea of her doing a chapter critique sounds brilliant to me (though a little scary too). The addition of a character name in her next book AND a signed proof of her new one makes this a very attractive item to bid on.
