We’ve decided to extend the closing date of our Back-To-School-Blues giveaway to the end of October… so there’s no excuse not to enter!!! Free signed books AND a goody bag too… what’s not to like? 20 people will win a copy of Dizzy & Sundae Girl, plus a fab little goody bag… sounds like the perfect way to brighten up your week! And if you already have all the books, then remember they’d also make excellent pressies for friends!!!

All you have to do is tell us – in 50 words or less – your best summer story, snippet or memory! For more info on how to enter, check out the Back-To-School-Blues comp page… and if your entry is really cool, we might even use it online! Entries must be postal only, and sadly this time the comp is open only to readers in the UK & Eire… but again, all the details are in the COMP section. (I PROMISE there’ll be a giveaway especially for overseas readers next month!!!)

I’m still on the road at the moment, heading for events in Redbridge, London & Bath, and then the fabby Queen of Teen ceremony… woo! And yes, I’m still writing too…

  1. Maya, there’ll be lots more books, but no sequels planned right now; Maddie, Gingersnaps is ALREADY out everywhere except for USA… and Katie & Laura, I will be touring in Australia in May next year!!!! Katie, some comps are open to readers around the world, like the writing comp on WRITING WORKSHOP page in the YOU section of the site… other comps will state whether or not overseas readers can enter. In Nov we’ll have a book giveaway for overseas readers, promise!

  10. Greetings fellow Cathy fans. Are you going to ever tour America? You probably did already but I would love to see you in Pennsylvania, where I live. In my school I had to write a five paragraph essay about who my hero is and I of course chose you Cathy! I would love if you could come to PA!

    Love ya Cathy! Keep on writin’
