I can’t believe it’s that time already – Matt can’t believe it either.
Tomorrow, we hop on our Cyber Plane and jet off to visit Sally Murphy in WA. We’re going to be talking to Sally about how to promote your story online (like at blog tours and things).
It’s going to be a fun-filled fortnight of interviews, chats, launches, interactive reading and writing activities and all sorts of fun stuff related to the creation and writing of Letters to Leonardo.
Here’s where we’re going:
