Part of the fun of being a children’s author is getting to meet young readers and their families.  Josie is available for author visits in bookshops and schools.  The visits are great fun for all involved.  As well as reading her stories to the children, Josie gets the children involved in art and craft activities based around one of her stories.  There might even be a treasure hunt with sticker prizes!

“Kept children interested all the way through.”


Josie Dom is delighted that she has been selected as one of the one hundred companies chosen by Small Business Saturday UK to be featured in this year’s promotion in the run-up to Small Business Saturday on 1 December.

The campaign aims to highlight all the hard-working small businesses in the UK which contribute to our economy in many ways, and reminds the public to support small businesses.

Josie’s day is Saturday 24 November.  There will be a special event on the day.  Sign up to Josie’s newsletter to be the first to hear all about it.
