HOME AT LAST!
Phew! Unpacking my suitcase after just over two weeks travels around the UK, meeting thousands of fabulous readers on my Coco Caramel paperback tour. I had an epic time, but it's great to be back!
Big thanks to the AWESOME readers, teachers, librarians and booksellers I met wherever I went - you helped to make it all so cool, whether I was in Lichfield or Lynn Grove, Walsall or Warrington, Bristol, Gloucester, Leeds, Yarm, London and all kinds of places in between! I think it has been my best tour yet, and I feel like the luckiest author ever to have such inspiring, amazing readers. Special thanks to the readers who have given me presents, chocolates, cakes, letters and stories... you're amazing!
If you've never been to a CC signing you can take a sneaky peek behind the scenes over on my new DREAMCATCHER blog-zine, thanks to my first reader-reporters, Morgan and Darcie, who interviewed and photographed readers at my Bristol signing. If you haven't looked at DREAMCATCHER yet, check it out, and send me your ideas for future features. And if YOU want to be a roving reporter or even feature in one of the upcoming posts, let me know!
Have you read my new e-book mini-book, 'Chocolates and Flowers: Alfie's Story' yet? It's only 99p on the amazon Kindle store, so grab it while it's still a pocket-money price! Alfie, our favourite 'most annoying boy in the world' gets to tell his own story, and fans of Summer will find out more about how she's getting on too. 'Chocolates and Flowers' should keep you busy until Sweet Honey comes out on June 5th... don't say I'm not good to you!
Oh, and while I remember... I know there are LOTS of very cool readers out there with panda hats like the one Coco has in Coco Caramel... send me a pic of you wearing your panda hat (or another animal hat, perhaps) and I will post the best in an upcoming issue of DREAMCATCHER mag. What are you waiting for? Fame at last!
See you soon!
