Jo Oliver has been busy

Jo Oliver has been having a lovely time launching her latest book Tatiara. The last few weeks Jo has kept busy attending numerous book events and book signings.

Jo had two helpful assistants, Annabelle and Lhotse who assisted her in launching Tatiara. Both girls were models for the young girl featured in the book.
They cut the ribbon and declared Tatiara launched.

The event was held at the beautiful Tathra Surf Club where much of Jo’s story is set.

If you missed out on Jo’s events and would like to purchase a signed copy of Tatiara you will find Jo signing copies of her book at Angus & Robertson, Camden on:

Thursday 29th April 6.30-8pm

Saturday 1st May 10am-12 noon

Jo’s stunning illustrations will be exhibited throughout May at Narellan Library.

New look for NFP

Well, we are back from our travels. Bologna provided interesting insights into the world of children’s publishing. There has been much discussion about our list and we will be making a few exciting changes. We will keep you posted.

One new development is a brand new look for NFP. We thought our logo was a little boring, so our trusty designer Nick has put his thinking cap on and come up with some stellar ideas. We wanted to keep the theme - into the New Frontier, but also give the logo an element of fun, which is somewhat lacking in the current logo. Nick is just putting the finishing touches on his magical new creation and we will post the new look next week for you to comment on.

We apologise for the lack of recent posts but after Bologna Sophia went on to London for a week and was rather busy enjoying herself. She is now back in Oz and furiously planning books, launches and birthday parties. It was Nick’s birthday this week. We had cake.

Thank you to all our followers. We are aspiring to continue to publish terrific children’s books and to be on the CBCA shortlist next year!!
