Don’t forget to buy MIZZ MAG on 8th JULY to see who which six lucky readers have been shortlisted for the 2010 MY BEST FRIEND ROCKS award… choosing has been tough, as the entries were SO brilliant this year!

All the judges have have their say, and I have spent a few days sifting through the longlist and whittling it down – in the photo you can see my cat Pepper ‘helping’! The shortlist will be announced in Mizz mag’s 8th July issue, so don’t miss out. Shortlisted readers will then be informed by mail, too, and I’ll see them for the fabby award ceremony at this year’s EDINBURGH FESTIVAL. Woo hoo!

If you live in the North West, see if you can come along to my event at the MANCHESTER CHILDREN’S BOOK FESTIVAL on Saturday July 3rd… I’ll have some exclusive taster chapters from Cherry Crush to give out!

For more info on my EDINBURGH FESTIVAL event or on the MANCHESTER CHILDREN’S BOOK FESTIVAL one, check out the EVENTS page on my website!

Last but not least, good news… Thanks to your brilliant nominations, I have been shortlisted for the 2010 QUEEN OF TEEN award. Yay! It’s time for you to get voting – and tell your friends, too! Just click QUEEN OF TEEN to cast your vote. It’s a pretty cool shortlist… scary biscuits!
