Happy New Year!
Christmas was a lovely relaxing time, enjoying the company of family, friends and dogs. I don’t even own a dog, but they seemed to be everywhere this holiday; Maisie, Dexter, Lily, Millie and now my aunt’s gorgeous new cockapoo puppy Bessie.
And then the holidays were over…
The proof reading is done and The Awkward Autumn of Lily McLean is ready to go to print. Caitie-Jane from Floris is helping me to organise a marketing plan and I’m already looking forward to the book launch, which will hopefully take place soon after the book goes into shops on the 16th March.
School started back on the 5th of January and we returned to find the classroom had been visited by a dragon, who asked us if we would help him to rebuild Fairytale Land. The children are very excited at the prospect of castle building. I’m looking forward to introducing them to lots of traditional and alternative fairytales. Reading aloud is my favourite part of the school day! Pinterest is great for design ideas but it’s easy to end up feeling a bit intimidated. Are there enough hours in the day to create this sort of magic??…
Anyway, I shall do my best, with the help of my enthusiastic wee class.
Here’s another blog, written for Girls Heart Books which tells more about The Awkward Autumn of Lily McLean. https://girlsheartbooks.com/2017/01/18/when-life-gets-awkward/
And I’ve other exciting book news too, which hopefully I’ll be able to talk about soon!
