We’re here to share some November news from the Old Mate Media stable and some important order dates for you as we prepare for the Christmas season.
Old Mate Media author Ken Mackenzie featured on Chat & Spin Radio
We were very excited to hear Ken’s radio interview on Chat & Spin Radio last week. You can listen to the interview using the Soundcloud snippet below – he is on from about 27 min – 32 min.
My favourite part was of course when he talked about Old Mate Media, as he said:
"Anyone who’s got a story to tell, Old Mate Media are the people to speak to. They have walked me through the whole process."
Ken is one of our children’s authors. An entertainer based in Torquay, he sells his children’s books via his live hotel shows and does very well. His latest book is Gentle George, our first foray into chapter books. You can read more about it and purchase your copy on Amazon and wherever good books are sold.
