You dig books? How about illustration and design? Smell? You like magazines that smell nice? Well, I know of a magazine that not only discusses books, has beautiful illustration, smells fantastic (what? if you got your hands on one you’d smell it too!) and it packs a punch when it comes to all things children’s and young adult books.
I am, of course, talking about Inis Magazine. It will make you say things like, ‘oh swoonish’, ‘smell that’ and ‘according to Inis magazine…’ You will become in the know about bookish things and even better than all that; you get to read two articles by me in the Winter 2012 issue 38. Go buy it! It is so worth it. You are so worth it, treat yourself and splurge on Inis. You know you want to. Think how pretty it will look in your library or your coffee table…Go see the preview copy now. Swoon!
I got the chance to interview the intriguing Sally Nichols, we talked books, writer
tips and the ‘how’ of writing. She signed my books. And, she stamped them. Yeah, how cool, right! Her publishers gave her a stamp of a symbol relating to one of her books. Her books contain the biggest possible adventure…they have pride of place in my library.
Have a look-it at one of her book trailers, well, it is a movie trailer based on her book Ways to Live Forever –
Did you mist up? Don’t worry, we all did.
What? You didn’t shed one tear? Monster!
I also reviewed The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente. I am only going to say this; I will keep this book forever.
You can read the first six chapters here. I urge you to do so. Please!
Have a look-see at the book trailer –
Thank you to Children’s Books Ireland and Inis Magazine for having little young me in your swoonish magazine and for putting together one of the best smelling magazines around. Stay cool, yo!
