Darcy Moon in Singapore

I’m excited to announce that Fremantle Press (the Australian publishing house of Darcy Moon and the Deep-fried Frogs) has signed a new distribution agreement, effective last week, with the Singapore-based company Closetful of Books.

The owner of Closetful of Books, Denise Tan will select a number of Fremantle Press titles for her program. ‘Hoppily’ for me, her first choice is Darcy Moon and the Deep-Fried Frogs.

 

deniseDenise has an infectious passion for children’s literature and a strong background in the book trade, having worked with well-known Singapore bookshop Bookaburra for a number of years. I am so excited that Darcy Moon and the Deep-fried Frogs is her first Australian book choice.

Already she has featured me on her website, coordinated all the book sales for my author visits at the Australian International School, managed to get Darcy Moon and the Deep-fried Frogs into the gorgeous boutique PlayDate Bookstore in the Katong V shopping Mall, and is now working with me to organise a fun and family-friendly afternoon book launch to be held at the Singapore Arts House on April 13th.

All are welcome, so please do join us!
