It has been far too long since I gave an update on here. At the end of April I had a very enjoyable visit to Gryffe High, where I was introduced to the whole of 2nd year, by the school’s reading patron, author V.Campbell (you should check out her Viking Gold book!). It was fun talking to the pupils about my writing journey, ideas and inspiration. My favourite part was when the pupils started to create their own story, aided by my prompt cards, where I encouraged them to come up with an interesting character, a setting, a fear, an object…I wish we had more time to hear about what sixteen year old Penelope, who had a fear of libraries, got up to in an abandoned theatre in New York…
In the past couple of weeks I received brilliant 5 star reviews for Follow Me. You can read these on the Our Book Reviews Online Blog and the brilliant Paisley Piranha blog (this blog will introduce you to loads of great YA fiction).
Paisley Piranha also interviewed me for their Book Bite newsletter. You can check this out here AND Most Importantly you can see details at the end of my interview of how to WIN a signed copy of Follow Me. If you tweet about it you get more entries into the hat. Good luck!
Lots of good publicity going on there and a great interview!
