You're getting published? Who's your publisher?

Firstly, let's take a moment to say Yes! Yes! Yes! I am getting published. I was fortunate enough to get that magic email late last year from publisher Anouska Jones from EK Books accepting my picture book manuscript. EK Books, the children's imprint of Exisle Publishing, is a publisher of children's picture books only. Its motto is great story, great characters, great message and its books are aimed primarily at children aged 4 to 8. I first met Anouska at the NSW Writers' Centre's Kids and YA Festival in 2016, where I won a pitching competition that she judged. On the back of this, I sent Anouska an email asking if she would be interested in seeing my full manuscript and much to my delight
