Willoughby's chapter illustrations during Inktober

Jemima has taken up the inspiration of Danielle English, her cover illustrator, to join in the challenge of Inktober.

Inktober encourages participants to do a pen and ink sketch or drawing daily during October, and to post it publicly in their favourite social media.

Jemima has 'about' 19 chapter illustrations to do for book 7 of the Princelings series, Willoughby the Narrator, and she thought this would be a great idea to push her to complete them and to share them with you as they unfold.  She'll be posting them to her Pinterest wall first, which should also share on Twitter and the Princelings Facebook page.

Only 19?  what about the other 12?  Well, there are the illustrations for book 8, the Princelings of the North, to be done too...

Wise words about book publishing

We were attracted to this post by Judith Briles, the Book Shepherd, giving you all the best places to look to avoid being scammed, or just ripped-off, when you publish your own book.

There's lots more useful advice on this site, too.

Geoffrey was part of the commissioning team for the second Empire Flying Boat to be launched, Centaurus, G-ADUT (picture courtesy of Mark Postlethwaite).  In White Water Landings he talks about the altitude testing - 10,000 feet with an unpressurised cabin and no oxygen, and the landing when he was sent into the tail section to report on how it felt. He had nothing to hold onto except a few wire struts, and only the airframe skeleton to stand on!

Enter here for a chance to win.  Open until 30th September, for members anywhere in the world.
