Book Launch and Kids Fun Day – Save the Date!

Hi Everyone!

12 February 2017! Save the date!

I am so excited to finally be able to share the details around the official Alyangula book launch event for my picture book, “There’s a Crocodile on the Golf Course”!

The event will be held at the Alyangula Golf Club, naturally! Croco won’t have to venture far to join us (though the real crocodile can stay away, please) and there will be plenty of activities and fun to be had for everybody!

I will create a Facebook Event (check out / follow my Facebook page – Rachel Barnett – Holus Bolus Books for details) to keep everyone updated on activities and competitions for the day and will also post more information here as the date gets closer.

Please put it on your calendar and come and help me celebrate if you can. Croco and I would really love see you there!

Happy days!

Welcome to Our Website!

It is so exciting to be launching this website, Holus Bolus Books! Mainly this is because it means that I have finally figured out how to put a website together… but more on that later maybe.

What a big month it has been! Melbourne Cup, Halloween (I am including this as it all rolls into one this time of year) and my boys 5th birthday, fishing competitions, hubby’s birthday… and a few other events in between. I feel like I need to go and lie down for a week now to recover, but that is just not going to happen…

Receiving the advanced copies is just a bit exciting!

Receiving the advanced copies is just a bit exciting!

And now for the REALLY exciting news, I received the advanced copies of There’s a Crocodile on the Golf Course last week! Do you know how exciting it is to hold one of the first copies of your first book in your hands?!

Oh, and the smell of a freshly printed book…

It has been a steep learning curve, and it’s one that I’m still on, but it’s nice to finally have a copy or two.

It’s not due to be released until February, however. There is still a lot to do! But… drum roll please… pre orders are now open! For those who pre order before February, a 20% discount will apply. Just order through this website, and enter the code PREORDER, or Contact Us here.

Unfortunately I can’t guarantee that the books will be ready by Christmas. I am still looking at options to try to make this happen if the first lot of books arrive soon enough… you never know but I can’t make any promises!

In the meantime, feel free to take a look around the website, see what we are all about and share with your friends if you think they’d be interested. We hope you like our website. We’d love your feedback! Oh, and if you want to be kept up to date with our news (eg. official release dates, the Launch Party!!) subscribe below or keep up via our Facebook page.

Now I’m off to (hopefully) catch a billfish or two…

Happy days!
