I might go back and colour this later, that was fun. (See the last few posts if you're not sure what this one's about.)

News: If you're at the Bath Festival of Children's Literature on Sat, 27 Sept, come along to the panel talk at the Guildhall with David Fickling, the Etherington Brothers, John Aggs and me! I just got the festival booklet, the lineup of children's book creators looks amazing. You can book tickets to our event here or visit the main festival website here!

I'm also going to be on a DFC panel at the upcoming Caption comics festival in Oxford on Sat, 9 Aug. Here's the flyer, should be good fun. I can't wait to see who turns up at the pub.

Okay, funny things about the internet. My lovely web designer, Dan Fone showed me this tracker thing I can use to see which search engine terms people have used to get to my website and sites that have referred them to me. I couldn't believe it when I found that the Google search term a nice website brings up my website as number six! I'm not quite vain enough to think that this means mine is the sixth nicest website in the whole world, but it still made me go 'whoo whoo!' and do a few air punches. The other thing I found out is that my chief referrer is a Russian person with the cosy name of Lord from Hell. The internet is such a weird place.

Thanks, Candy! The tracker thing comes with my internet provider, Knightsbridge Online, a Brighton-based company. It also tells me what parts of the world people are coming from, kind of interesting. So many from Russia, that selfportraits.ru site really sent a lot my way.

Cor! That's great, Sarah! And thanks for the plug for Caption. It's not really set in a pub though (although there is an on-site bar which tends to be the place everyone retreats to!)

Looking forward to meeting you. Any chance I could use your Vern & Lettuce Monkey homage in the Programme? Pretty please? : )

Sure, no problem. Let me know your e-mail address and I'll send it through. Look forward to meeting you soon!

I love Monkey, and I love Vern and Lettuce, so your hitting lots of buttons at once for me. : )

I meant to ask if you could do something for the Caption programme anyway, so this is synchronicity at work, and also doesn't require you to do any extra work. Win-win all round. ; )

My email is:


Cheers, Sarah!
