Henrietta Hedgekin – Launch Day

Henrietta Hedgekin flying over Gillyford.

The day is finally upon us. I am thrilled to be able to announce that The Adventures of Henrietta Hedgekin: Friendship will be available from April 28th, 2023.

I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am about this. It’s been my dream for so long, and to actually have it come to fruition is the best feeling in the world. It’s been a heck of a journey and I’ve learned so much along the way. There’s a lot more to publishing than just writing the story and getting it out there. There’s a lot of work that follows; from marketing to organising events. It’s amazing to think that every book you see on the shelf has gone through this process.

These days there is a lot of onus on social media and self-promotion. And I admit there have been times I’ve found myself muttering “Richard Scarry and Enid Blyton didn’t have to deal with this crap”. But it’s all worth it. You need to be adaptable to be in this game.

Speaking of events, I have a couple coming up. I will be hosting The Road to Gillyford on June 8th at Guille-Alles Library. Space is limited so if you want to attend in person, I have tickets available on Eventbrite.

For anyone who can’t get there in person, I will also be streaming it live on my FB page. It’s set for 7pm BST. I have it as a separate event to make things a bit easier. If you wish to attend from the comfort of home, got to The Road to Gillyford – Live event and select Going.

The Adventures of Henrietta Hedgekin will be available to buy from Amazon, Waterstones and all good book retailers. As well as direct from my publisher: Austin Macauley

I want to thank everyone who has supported me all these years and especially the last 2 years in making my dream a reality. I couldn’t have done this without you.

And before I forget. There are going to be some new additions to this website coming very soon so stay tuned!
