Have you been enjoying the sunshine? Have you been anywhere exciting? And most importantly, have you been reading any of my books?

I’ve been to a couple of fab festivals, including Carfest North in Cheshire which raises money for NSPCC Children in Need. My events at Carfest were cool, and I spotted old and new readers alike reading my books all around the festival site, which was brilliant! It gave me the idea to launch a PHOTO CHALLENGE – and anyone can take part!

If you were at Carfest and have a pic of you reading your CC book at the festival, send your pic to me here. If you’ve been to a different festival and have a pic of you there reading one of my books, send that pic in; and if you haven’t made it to a festival this summer, just recreate the festival vibe and imagine you’re styling a festival photo shoot – starring you, with your fave CC book! You might accessorise with a festival hat, a flower headband, a picnic blanket, a face-painted flower on the cheek or just some boho-cool clothes… get creative and channel that festival fun! If possible, get high-res pics and email them to me here.

What am I going to do with the pics? I’m planning to put them together to create a FESTIVAL themed slideshow which will appear on CCTV to remind us what a brilliant summer we’ve had. A little bit like this slideshow – only with added festival cool!

The vlogs from Cherry, Skye, Summer, Honey and Coco are taking a break for the summer, but that means there’s a chance for YOU to get involved and liven up CCTV for me… either by taking part in the festival slideshow or by filming your OWN video review of a CC book or even getting together with friends to act out a few scenes or make your own trailer for one of my books! What are you waiting for? 

Get your creative groove on, and go for it!
