Events

After 100 or so events last year, I’m aiming for a lower-key 2018 (some home time, some writing). So, not as many festivals and not as much touring, though there’s still room in the diary for some more, and for things like Wisdom Tree house concerts and school visits within driving range of home. I’ll aim to add public events as soon as they’re, um, public. You know what I mean.

14 April TOWNSVILLE
As part of Festival 2018
10.30-12.30 novella masterclass, Octagon, Queens Gardens (FREE, but please book)

    Hi Nick, it was such a pleasure meeting you and Terry earlier this week at Cleveland Library. It think it was a great event and you managed to keep almost 150 kids/ people entertained and engaged for an hour! WOW! Impressive. I hope you and Terry survive and enjoy the rest of your tour.

      Hi Gillian. It was very good to meet you too and thanks for having everything so well set up for the event. And what a great bunch of kids they were. The only thing we had to try to manage was their enthusiasm, which is exactly what you hope for, but not always how it works out.

    Just wondering if you will have word hunter for sale at jimboomba library on Friday. Have tried the local bookshop (boonah) but they don’t have it in stock. Could you bring two copies for me to purchase. Thankyou, Lesley.

    • nickearls says:

      I’m glad to hear you’re coming – thanks for that. Jimboomba’s ‘That Book Place’ will be there selling books, so we should have no problem making sure you end up with two copies. Thanks again.

    The kids and their visiting coast cousins loved seeing you at jimboomba on Friday. When they left our place on Friday afternoon – with much merriment – they stuck their heads out the window and yelled ‘that is all’.
    You have four new fans.

    Hi Nick,
    thanks for coming to Ashgrove State School. I really like your books because they are fun and exciting. I am just reading the Word Hunters numbers 1 and I think its great. I can’t wait to read the next two – hopefully there will be more.

    Thanks again

      Hi Henry,
      It’s great to hear that – I really appreciate it. After all the research and planning (and writing and illustrating), it’s very good to know that the books actually work when people read them.
      Thank you.
      Nick

    Let’s pray we are home by the time your Brisbane sesh happens… 🙂

    • nickearls says:

      I’m hoping you’re home soon, and that things go as well as they can in the meantime. You’re on a lot of people’s minds back here.

      • Mama Gringa says:

        Thanks Nick. We’ve had some news today, so might just make it by the skin of our teeth… although I do have a request: Could you do your launch in Spanish too for my girl?
