Why didn’t I think of that?

Every now and again I hear of an idea that just seems to make so much sense - and there is the obligatory… why didn’t I think of that?! is one of those ideas. A one-stop listing of events/activities/offers and more for parents looking to spend time with their kids.

Now here’s the part that makes most sense… what is to stop a publisher/pr guru/writer from using this resource to tap into an audience of parents interested in spending time with their children? What about a free ‘meet-the-author’ day with goodie-bags, surprise competitions - all in association with a resource website or two, some book groups, arts organisations, a publisher…whoever. It could easily become a regular occurrence, with a book stand to sell some books.

And you could take this one on the road. One day in Dublin, another in Galway, Belfast or Cork. Not necessarily all in a row, or with the same authors, but with a recognised brand (publisher or the website) and a publishers name over it. An initiative for children and parents to meet authors, win free books and hear some stories - seems pretty cheap and marketable.
