A new year and a new blog. In 2014 I wrote and sold my first book. June 2015 will see it published by wonderful Walker books.
*pause whilst I shout WHOOPEE! for the 456th time and dance a little jig around the room*
There’s a limited amount I can tell you about my book at the moment- except that it will be BEAUTIFUL because it’s crammed full of wonderful illustrations by Clara Vulliamy. You can read a little bit more back at my old blog here or at Clara’s here.
It felt the right time to stop reviewing other people’s books as I become more involved with my own- although I dare say I shan’t be able to help jumping up and down enthusiastically when I come across a particularly special one. In this new blog I’ll be sharing some of the adventures of becoming a published author. There won’t be ‘writing tips’; I still have my learner plates on. There will be book news, biscuit news and gratuitous pictures of our cat Jones.
In the meantime I’m just beginning to settle in: Selecting some scatter cushions, putting up a few pictures and keeping the kettle on for any visitors. Current biscuit status is GOOD- please- help yourself, it’s still the holidays after all-
Current cat status is Sitting On a Bag Looking Winsome-
But- hang on… THIS is neither biscuits nor cat. What could it be? Hmmm.
