The Dragon Defenders is #1!

OK, so it's not a real gold medal. It may have been borrowed for the occasion.

But it is official.

The Dragon Defenders is the top-selling children's novel by a Kiwi author, according to the Neilson Bestsellers List.

To say we're chuffed is an understatement.

When you write a book, commission some incredible illustrations and animations, make the decision to self-publish it, and instruct your printer to produce 5000 copies, it's nerve-wracking in the extreme. But when the copies are leaving the distribution centre (aka the garage) and being enjoyed by children around the country, it's unbelieveably satisfying.

And to reach number one is a dream.

Thanks to all who have read The Dragon Hunters, The Dragon Tamers and The Dragon Riders, and have now gone on to buy The Dragon Defenders. FYI - I'm working hard on the second novel in the series, which I hope to have out by late October 2017.
