It’s been a long time between BLOGS. Lots of things have happened since then both personally and world wide. We are told that life will be “a new normal” so I guess we have to embrace it as best we can and ‘keep calm and carry on’ and find joy in the things we can do.
For the life of an artist the shut down hasn’t been all bad. We love the idea of being told to stay at home and work. My life has never been busier…and I’m sure I’m not alone. My second book about the dogs was officially released just as Covid hit, so that made it a little tricky to get my books from the printers into the bookshops. However, several businesses and shops have supported me over the last months to get my book out there, so thank you.
Tell me about your new book, you ask? It’s called You Can’t Find Me – The two dogs are back, this time with their new colourful friends, ‘the ten little frogs’. In this story the dogs and frogs play hide and seek in the garden. There is lots of counting, colour, rhyming, humour and action. A perfect book to teach numbers and colours to your preschooler. A perfect gift for a new baby.
Want a copy? It’s easy! You just need to log onto my webpage atwww.nicolabolton.com.au/books and follow the prompts. I’ve just redesigned my webpage to make book purchases much easier. Both books are available. Postage prices are within Australia ONLY, so if you live outside Australia just send me an email and I’ll let you know the postage costs.
