JED's Author Insights # 1 Simon Haynes

As a relatively new blog, Words and Pictures has initially been a little random but I am slowly working out the kinks and details. Teaser Tuesday was a good start, now I have come up with a new, hopefully regular segment for the blog.

JED’s (That’s me) Author Insights.

Luckily, I have become acquainted with a number of published authors since my decision to become more professional with my writing and try to make a serious career as a children’s author. Part of this process is asking questions, learning to avoid the pitfalls established writers have already stumbled on. I have learned a lot thanks to the generosity these busy people have shown me.

Simon Haynes
Western Australian based author of the SF/Humour 'Hal Spacejock' novels, published by Fremantle Press and distributed by Penguin Australia.

I interviewed Simon some time ago and posted the full interview HERE.

Please take the time to look at the interview and I urge you to read Simon’s books. It is amazing how many strange looks you get after bursting out in spontaneous laughter from the antics of the hapless Hal Spacejock – probably the most clueless freighter pilot in the known universe – and Clunk, his battered but brilliant android sidekick.

Simon and Freemantle Arts Centre Press have graciously offered the first book in the Hal Spacejock series as a FREE downloadable E-Book
