Bonus Post

Hello fellow Children’s Writers and Friends,

I know I had always intended to keep you up to speed on my publishing journey, however, as I have found out and hope you will one day too, that this is not possible. It’s not possible because while decisions are being made, contracts signed and a whole bunch of other things I may get to share with you down the track, it all needs to remain confidential, if only in case it all falls through and you end up looking foolish. That’s happened to me before, not this time, however and…

it gives me no small measure of delight to announce that my first Picture Book, The Sorrowful Star will be published by Little Pink Dog Books ( in October next year!

It will be a full colour hardcover book otherwise known as bliss for me, Artelle Lenthall.

I’m thrilled to have multi-talented, Melbourne-based illustrator, Margaret Dewar to bring my words to life.

So, only a short post this time but I will continue to

Savour the Quest

Farewell fellow travellers,


About Artelle Lenthall

Hi Fellow Children’s Writers and Friends, I am a published Picture Book author as well as a wife, mother and Primary School teacher. I am loving the new 'sites' on the continuing road to publication. I belong to the Fellowship of Australian Writers(FAW) Creative Kids Tales(CKT) Jen Storer’s The Scribblers and although I'd love to belong to more writing related organisations, I have found friends, support, critiquing and general encouragement with these, for which I am truly grateful. I also subscribe to Tara Lazar's specialist Picture Book website; How to Write For Kids While Raising Them, Buzz Words and The Duck Pond where I am one of the moderators. These inspire me in the development of my craft. Worth a look if like me, Picture Books and Children’s Writing are your passion.

  1. Thanks Kirsten, 🙂 it’s been a whirlwind of support. There’s nothing like the rapidly repeating notification ‘ding’ to help you feel the love.
