(uh-oh, he spotted me...got to dash)
So Kenneth set up the Singapore Showcase at the SCBWI booth on the second day of the fair and as you can see he did a bang up job and attracted curious onlooker. I'd like to say that my books had something to do with it, but the reality is that they didn't, why would they?

Also Lin Oliver, executive director and Co-Founder of SCBWI held an in conversation moderated by Kathleen Ahrens. I also managed to get Tioka, Aquisitions Editor with Hachette to have a look at Catherine Carvell's manuscript Darcy Moon and the Tyrannical Tyke Hoon and she gave it a really positive review. Trust me, people Catherine's going to be a best-selling author. I wish I could write as well as she does.

After after that, we headed back to the hotel to call it a night...I had to get ready for my make-or-break interviews the following day.
The second day ended with a champagne and cake celebration at the SCBWI booth.
