My biggest collaboration yet: Escape From Thorngate Hall

posted on 25 Nov 2015 at 7:23 am

I like to collaborate. It’s not half the work, although it is half the money, but I do get a lot of other things out of the deal. Fun, companionship, surprise, challenge – all that good stuff. So when the Adelaide Advertiser approached me to see if I’d be interested in collaborating with several hundred schoolkids all across South Australia, why would I possibly say no?

From the article:

“The Advertiser’s next progressive story, a collaboration between Williams, cartoonist Stephen Stanley and primary school children from all over South Australia … follows the hugely popular Boy With Silver Eyes, written by Ruth Starke with successive chapters contributed by 27 schools and published daily in The Advertiser last February. An e-book release followed.”

It’s going to be huge. Stay tuned for further updates!

Edited to add: It has begun! Follow the link to read the first chapter.

Edited to add: It has finished! You can now download the entire story, with artwork, as a free PDF.

Oh, and here’s the article from the print edition of the paper showing some of Stephen’s fabulous art. (I swear I was actually wearing pants.)
