Hello November! Wow you may have missed the October update (so did we:) things were simply insane over here with the Frankfurt Book Fair, the Sydney Mind Body Spirit festival, roughly 20 author events and of course our Publisher's (Lisa) birthday - 40 again!

Paul had a wonderful time in Germany presenting Rockpool's new products and got some excellent feedback on our upcoming products and even secured Asian distribution for the future. 

Kaj from Rockpool


Some of you may have met our latest employee the wonderful Kaj, who was so excited to work at the Mind Body Spirit festival in Sydney. Thank you to all the authors who supported these shows and gave up their valuable time to present to you, including Sharina Star, Rose Inserra, Rachelle Charman, BelindaGrace, Mim Beim, Cheralyn Darcey and Lucy Cavendish.  Congratulations to Michelle Green from Bellambi, NSW who won set of the Buddhism Reading Cards in our competition on the stand.


Well done also to our authors who have appeared on TV & Radio in October.  I think we had a record five authors on TV last week promoting their new products, so well done to all.  


Over the next month we have more author events including workshops, book launches, free store talks and library events where you will have a chance to interact and learn from our authors.  A big congratulations to Sofan Chan and Steve Normoyle on the release of their new book and cards in November, featured below. 


Happy reading this month, and dont forget to get your half price tickets to Melbourne Mind Body Spirit at the end of the newsletter.


Paul & Lisa (and Kaj :)
