Hello All, I'm looking for votes for "A Load of Rubbish"!






Hi all, as some of you already know, I have written a childrens book called "A Load of Rubbish"and without a clue what to do with it, I loaded it onto a site called Authonomy.com run by the publishers Harper Collins. It is a site to spot new unpublished talent. Anyway the book flew up the charts and is now no.7 out of over 6000 books. The top 5 at the end of each month are put forward for consideration to editors in Harper Collins UK and US. It's not a definite towards publication but it's a good step in the right direction.

I have uploaded the synopsis and voting instructions onto my blog in an effort to entice votes. Please have a read and if you have time pass on a vote.

The sketches above are of some of the characters in my story.
