I’m not very good at secrets. I’m fine if it’s a serious, friend-to-friend secret, a heart-to-heart… but if it’s good news, well, I just want to tell everyone about it! So… when Puffin told me some exciting news a few weeks back I was bursting to tell you all. I can’t – I REALLY can’t – Puffin would ruffle their fluffy feathers and get very cross – but… maybe I can hint?

This summer, I met some fab girls at Queen Elizabeth School in Cumbria who’d made a cool trailer for one of my books (you can find out more about them on December’s Secret Superfan page). Another reader, Hazel, has a YouTube blog and reviewed one of my books on it (you’ll see more of her on the Secret Superfan page in January!)

These girls got me thinking, and one of my lovely Puffin pals, Julia, put all these ideas together and came up with the COOLEST idea for the website! It’s a perfect way for you to find out more about my CHOCOLATE BOX GIRLS series… and it’s launching on the website mid January. I can’t say any more just yet, but… I think you’re going to LOVE it!

Oh, and there’s still time to enter my last two ADVENT FREEBIE COMPS over on my Facebook Fanpage – go over to the fanpage, click ‘like’ to join and then check back on Saturday 15th or 22nd December for your chance to win. I mean, it’s Xmas, so… why not?

If you’re still stuck for prezzie ideas my friend Ruth is showing you a fab crafty make on my December online Newsletter – if you don’t get the newsletter yet, sign up here! You know what? It’s beginning to look a LOT like Xmas!

  2. Dear Lily I am sure you probaly are very pretty, though I suppose we have all wondered whether we are pretty or not at some point in our life but always remember true beauty comes from the inside!
    I hope that has helped you.
    I hope you will find someone you will be very happy with soon but try not to rush in to things because that can sometimes be when things can go very wrong.
    I really hope this comment has helped.
    Have a lovely Christmas and new year

  3. your books are FAB there so creative and thoughtful i cant stop reading them until my mum starts telling me my eyes are about to pop out! I LOVE YOUR WORK. i somtimes pretend that i am the main character in the story, its amazing how real how vivid the pictures chapters are in my mind all done by YOU, you are able to do that and all sorts of things when you write an story.Its so real when i picture myself at the scene YOU are able to do that just by writing a story.your books have the power to control the readers head thats how you have power great power.
