Kat Apel, past BWC member and current WriteFest tragic, was in town to launch her best-selling verse novel, Bully on the Bus, published by UQP, at the library, July 8.
Why Best Selling? Because on the very day Kat came to the library, she received news the book had gone to another print run, and the only books for sale in the whole world were in the boxes she carried with her.
Way to go, Kat.
a beautifully crafted verse novel that will surprise and empower, Bully on the Bus’ is the ‘secret weapon’ that every bus-riding school kid should carry with them.
The launches continue at Gladstone, July 29, at the Curtis Coast Literary Carnivale, and at Bargara, August 2, at the Strawberry Fair.
Kat thanked her writer’s support network, and mentioned an editor/writer interview at WriteFest in 2010, with Jo Butler, as being pivotal in the development of her story.
