*We’ve just opened BANTOCKart our Etsy store. Having chatted to a number of folks, I decided to go the whole hog and put my more affordable works out into the universe. The pieces vary greatly and range from Griffin and Sabine preliminary sketches to small collages, and the prices are all between $100 and $900. Just Google: Etsy BANTOCKart
*The Trickster’s Hat is getting close, I’ll get the first printed copy in early Dec and the book will be in the shops mid Jan. Looks like Penguin have a whole pile of publicity lined up, so there is no hope of me forgetting!
*Also, I’m working hard on ‘The Isle of Sarte’ (next fiction), all being well we’ll know very soon who’s publishing it.
*And for anyone in Brazil, you might be interested to know that Griffin and Sabine has just been optioned to Brazil as a play to be staged in Portuguese.
