Never joined in the whole Inktober thing before, but I thought I'd give it a go this year. Envisaged myself carving out an hour or so each day to produce a considered, beautifully conceived and expertly executed piece, neatly central on a pristine piece of cartridge paper. But of course I ended up with a rather rag tag mix of doodles in the margins of newspapers (photographed out of focus on my phone), failed efforts at something more substantial, three days missed entirely... But, still, there are a handful that turned out okay, I think. Anyway, in the interests of chronicling it all in one place (and because I haven't posted here at all in God knows how long), here they all are...

Out today, from the excellent people at David Fickling Books, and almost certainly the best children's book about a schoolgirl librarian detective to be published so far this year.
Available from at least some of the places that sell books. You've probably got a lovely independent bookshop somewhere near you staffed by lovely human beings who really like books. They'd love to sell you a copy.
Or, you know, the Internet apparently has places that sell stuff these days. Who knew? Page 45 for instance. They're awfully good.
