I’m currently on the road to celebrate the launch of GingerSnaps in paperback here in the UK! Although it got off to a bit of a cold start this morning when the snow closed the school in London. Sorry to the girls at Pimlico Academy that I couldn’t come to see you but I hope you all had fun in the snow!

I LOVE the snow though – have a look at the photo of me at the bottom of this post outside Puffin HQ this morning! I can’t believe I’m in the middle of London and it’s covered in snow – check out the view from Puffin HQ’s window too!

Hopefully the rest of my tour will all go according to plan so check out MY CAMPER to see if I’m doing an event near you. Thank you to everyone who came to see me on Saturday in Carlisle – I had such a great time and it was so lovely to meet you all.

And I’m so excited that MY BEST FRIEND ROCKS 2009 is now open for your entries. It’s my friendship award so that you can nominate your best friend for being brilliant and being there for you. You and your best friend could win some amazing prizes and you could both be invited to an incredble award ceremony as part of the National Best Friends Day celebrations on 4th July where you can meet me! Click here to find out more!

And finally for now, before I head back off into the snow, don’t forget to get your copy of MIZZ magazine out this Thursday 5th Feb in the UK and Ireland. They’ll have more details of MBFR but there’s also a FREE copy of my Little Book of Friendship which is a mini booklet talking to celebs like Ashley Tisdale, The Saturdays and Alesha Dixon talking about their bff’s!

Hope to see you on my travels.
