Well I've just done another Book Dash, where we created a new kids' book in a 12-hour sprint. 11 teams of writers, illustrators and designers worked together to create new, creative-commons-licensed children's stories to be distributed to schools and libraries. If you live in South Africa and are interested in this kind of thing then I'd highly recommend getting involved - apart from being a great cause, it's a huge amount of fun, and we were surprised at regular intervals by food, chocolate and wine.


Once again I was working with Thea De Klerk and Chenel Ferreira. We made a sequel to our previous Book Dash story, Springloaded. The new book is called Goldfish Genius and will be available before Christmas.
