Earlier this evening I shared my exciting news on Instagram and Facebook. My Guide to Primary Interviews, (which many of you may have purchased over the years) is now being published by 4Schools/Examcraft Group. I am so delighted to have teamed up with these book publishers. I have self-published my interview guide for four years now, first as an Ebook and then as hard copies.

As it has grown in popularity, I have found it increasingly difficult to keep up with it all. The last couple of months in particular have been quite hectic. I was spending every evening addressing and packaging books to post. It was fine last year when I was on maternity leave, but this year has just been manic. It was taking away from other projects I am working on too. So, by teaming up with 4Schools/Examcraft Group, I will be free of all postage and packaging duties, and all the work that goes with it, worrying about forgetting orders etc!

I am excited to be working with professional designers on the new cover, and changing it up a little. The guide is available to pre-order here:
