Deal Announcement – more early readers from Sam Hay and Sam Watkins!

I’m delighted to announce that new early readers from Sam Hay and Sam Watkinshave sold to Franklin Watts for their Hopscotch Twisted Talesseries! 

I’ve often talked about the skill needed to write a gripping and age appropriate story in just 400 words, and am always so impressed with writers who can do this – so big congrats and well done to both authors!
