SCARLETT’S A WINNER!

SCARLETT has been voted winner (older readers section) of the Royal Mail Scottish Children’s Book Award… woo!!!! I was so surprised at the fabby awards ceremony in Glasgow I didn’t know what to say – but THANK YOU to everyone who took part and voted for me!!!!

It’s a real honour to receive an award like this, especially one that is voted for by kids – it makes all the hard work worthwhile. Cool to see such great reviews from boys as well as girls, too! Special thanks to the group of kids who acted out an extract from Scarlett for the audience – you were all amazing!!!!

More exciting news… SUNDAE GIRL has been shortlisted for the Coventry Inspiration Book Awards! This is special to me too, as I grew up in Coventry and SUNDAE GIRL is set there. Voting for this award is open to kids everywhere, so if you’d like to get involved and cast a vote, just go to www.myvotescoventry.org and click on the READ IT OR ELSE section, which is where you’ll find SUNDAE GIRL. If you do decide to vote – thank you in advance!!!!

Last but not least, I have finally finished the first draft of my next book Ginger Snaps and will be working on the finishing touches over the next few weeks… phew!!!!! Watch out for Ginger Snaps in July 2008.
