I have an interactive presentation that promotes my current title (in this case THE INVENTORY: IRON FIST).
I focus on why the pupils should be writing stories - and show them what writers actually do: from creating comics to book to films to video games. I pepper this with some fun Hollywood photos of mine - then I move onto the book itself.
I end the show with an interactive quiz where I encourage everybody to scream and shout. The show ends with a Q&A and a signing.
The running time for the show is 1 hour, a little extra for the Q&A and signing. Although focusing on my new Scholastic series, I will be happy to run the TARZAN show if requested!
