I’ve had a brilliant September, touring around to launch my new book CHERRY CRUSH and meeting readers as far afield as Dublin, Plymouth, Brighton, Norfolk, Boston, Bluewater, Bromley, Coventry, Liverpool, Stockport, Scotland… and just about everywhere in between! Now I’m home, and finishing edits on the third Daizy Star book ‘Strike A Pose, Daizy Star’. It’s going to be fab!

After that, I’ll start work on Vanilla Skye, the next book in the Chocolate Box Girls series… I cannot wait!

In the Summer, we ran a comp for the best three photos of readers reading their fave CC book… and the winners are EMMA HARDY, age 10; MALLE POOLA, age 16; and GEORGIA RICHES, age 13. You can see their photos below… Malle is reading Gingersnaps (in Estonian translation) beside a lake in Estonia, Emma is reading her book at The Beatrix Potter Centre in the Lake District, and Georgia is chilling out with Driftwood in an apple tree. Pretty cool! You can also see all three winning photos in the next copy of my free online NEWSLETTER… and some of the other entries will be on YOUR PHOTOS in the YOU section soon!

Some of you will have noticed the new SECRET SUPERFAN PAGE link on the website homepage… and those of you who subscribe to the free online NEWSLETTER should already have a clue to the secret password! If you haven’t checked out the SECRET SUPERFAN PAGE yet, or don’t know the password, sign up for the free online NEWSLETTER… the next issue will give you the clue you need to work out the secret password!

So… what’s on the SECRET SUPERFAN PAGE? Get your paws on that password and take a look! You will find a special challenge for my superfan-readers every month, and find out who my superfan(s) of the month are… plus lots more! Don’t miss out… but remember, it’s for superfans only!

I’m really looking forward to getting back to writing and editing, and cosying up with a hot chocolate and a log fire burning. Don’t forget to tell me how you’re going to make YOUR Autumn awesome!
