Fantastic news: we have won a small business grant from Australia Post!

Christmas_Press Aust Post imageFabulous news: we have won a small business grant from Australia Post,as part of their Our Neighbourhood Grants for 2015!
The official announcement from Australia Post is here:
The project we specifically applied for is an exciting new venture: Second Look, a special new list within Christmas Press, featuring new e-book and POD editions of fabulous out of print books by well-known Australian children’s authors, giving them new life and enabling new access to them both in Australia and overseas. Plays, poetry and fiction will be featured in the Second Look list, which will debut in 2016. Launch title will be Duncan Ball’s great collection of comic plays for kids, This School is Driving Me Nuts and other plays, fully revised and with a new play added, and with the original illustrations by Craig Smith (with kind permission of Harper Collins). Duncan’s book was originally titled Comedies for Kids, and was published by Angus and Robertson in 1988. We are absolutely delighted to be giving this great title new life and making it accessible to a new generation of young readers– and performers!comic plays by duncan ball
Two other titles, yet to be decided, will also be published in Second Look in 2016.
We are thrilled to receive the Our Neighbourhood grant as it will really help with the costs of the set up for the Second Look list and first three titles, and it’s also a fantastic validation of not only the idea, but of us as an innovative and creative business!
