Sarah Hague, Writer

Right folks, I have the pleasure to announce that you are now reading the blog of an official, published writer. Yep, I know I've been wittering about this for a while now, and it may have seemed like it was one of those events that would never actually get off the ground and believe me, it sometimes felt like it. BUT it has happened thanks to the amazing work of the Bongo LLP team.

So, announcing with the Bongo drum roll:
  • - Slim the Vegetarian Ogre book. Available here whilst awaiting the referencing at Amazon (en cours).
  • - Slim the Vegetarian Ogre Story builder software (education) available here for PC (also available for Mac). Coming soon the home version.
  • - Slim the Ogre Interactive Flipcharts published by Promethean available here.
  • - Floppy the Monster is Nearly Lost Forever. Available here whilst awaiting Amazon referencing.
I can confidently say that they are all fab. The Slim software is amazing for helping children write their own stories in class and get the whole lot published as a class book on lovely paper with a hard cover that parents and grannies can buy for posterity. They also serve to make money for the school for other interesting projects. My youngest has been one of the testers and loved it!

The flipcharts are for school use and support the literacy aspects of the story builder - adjectives, point of view, setting the scene, writing speeches etc.

The Slim the Ogre book is an extended jolly version of what the kids could end up writing, with lots of references to disgusting ogrey things.

Floppy the Monster is a super book for little kiddies aged about 4. The illustrations are just fabulous; we are so lucky to have Sybil Harris on board to bring the stories to life. This is the first one in the series where Floppy is nearly lost in the supermarket and is captured by the mean and horrid Momo Morris who is out shopping with his witchy granny.

It's only Floppy's determination not to be kidnapped forever and be called 'Lucky Teddy' that saved the day, proving that love (and a little magic) keeps people and monsters together.

You can't imagine how proud I am to be part of it all. And it's just the beginning!

Once the Amazon reference is up, I'll be asking all those who volunteered to write a review. It's the sales on Amazon that make the buzz, so... watch this space!

  5. Congrats! Is it too early to pop the champagne open? Or do I wait until it's at least noon???

  6. Samantha, I do believe one can drink champagne at any time of the day or night, and especially for breakfast.

    I'll be waiting to combine the occasion with my birthday this weekend and have a Bigger Celebration :)
