Enchant Your Audience
“To be a children’s author at a school event you need to unleash your inner entertainer – no matter how deeply buried they might be. Even if you’ve done this type of thing before nothing prepares you for being stood alone talking about YOUR book. It’s a thrilling, exciting and slightly exposing situation to be in but by brushing up on your skills and preparing well what could potentially be a nerve-wracking experience can be turned into something to enjoy. There truly is no better experience than to be interacting with your readers and potential readers. Capturing their attention and imagination in real life is as much a skill as doing it on the page!”
