Do You Have a Young Speculative Fiction Reader in Your House?

Filed under: Uncategorized — macdibble @ 10:05 am

If so, I encourage you all to buy this collection of short stories: Worlds Next Door

It’s not very often you’ll come across a collection of speculative short stories aimed at primary school children, and just look at the list of contributing authors! You can tell it’s special before you even open the cover. Okay, I’m in there… but I’m impressed by the company and you should be too!

Worlds Next Door

Right now, there is a prepublication special price you can take advantage of. Buy a copy for yourself and don’t forget to show it to teachers at your child’s school. A supporting website with lesson plans is in the making. Teachers often flounder when teaching genre writing to children unless they are fans themselves, and this book could be just what they’re looking for.


Blake Ed have been updating their website and if you’d like to look inside the books I’ve had published in the last few months or (hint, hint) recommend them to your child’s school, click the covers below:

  1. Hi Bren,
    The spec book looks great. Can you buy it from bookshops?
    Also, how many books do you have with Blake.
    You are so positively prolific! Still especially loving Zip.

  2. Thanks, Allison,

    At the moment you can only preorder it at the special price from Tehani. There is a shoppy button on her site, click on the book to go through to it and read more.

    I have 9 books with Blake. 5 Gigglers and 4 Sparklers. I love Blake Ed. They just might be the best educational publisher in the whole world. 🙂
