Sketa known to her home-town folk of Toowoomba, Queensland as Selina Kucks, stated she was excited to see this book on the next leg of its journey. "I'm tickled pink to see the final result of this next tale and believe readers will be more than happy with the creative flair in which it was published. A lot of hard work, sleepless nights and exhausted days accompany its production."
For Sketa this is the second of five books in the Possum Tales Series, but the sixth in books published to date. Writing the YA novel series 'The Parchment' in 2009, readers were keen to receive its Korean translation in 2010 and the 'The Parchment Tale unfolds in 2012. The third and final book in this trilogy was ticked for publication last year, "but due to particular family issues over the last couple of years, I was never in the frame of mind to complete it", she said.
We wish Sketa all the very best with 'Possum Tales...an Odd Day' and hope you'll show your support on Good Friday, 25th, 2016 for the Amazon release. Go get 'em Sketa!
Publicity & Correspondence
Comic bookshops are popping up in the most unlikely of places, alongside arcades that once housed the dying, collector card-game traders. They are again popular and doing a roaring trade. With the growth of the internet and the spread of information across the sphere, budding young artists are now able to turn their artistic hands into making a tidy sum.
"It was always difficult getting artwork out in the public eye, because unless you worked for Marvel, publishers just weren't interested," states Kevin Cartwright. "I know scores of really talented artists who have been drawing for just an eternity and they make nothing from their work. They sit at home penniless, while someone else exploits them and takes the cheque. I think the biggest problem in the past has been not knowing how to get work out there. For some artists they can draw alright, but they are lousy at the business side of things, so they get taken for a ride, so many times. You have to be really tech-savy to survive."
