I think that’s all for now…

There’s a lovely review of Kiss Date Love Hate written by a young reader in the Guardian: Guardian teen book reviews.
“It is so unique, and such an amazing plot, that I was gripped throughout the whole book…”
“Exciting, funny and filled with great characters, Swapped By a Kiss will keep you entertained right until the very last page.”
[Kiss Date Love Hate] “…a revealing and poignant story about individuality, trust and friendship.”
Thank you very much to Booktrust and the Guardian!
Read It And Laugh is a new multi-author blog focusing on the lighter, funnier side of fiction for young adults. It features authors including me, Amanda Ashby, Kimberly Pauley, Niki Burnham, Tom Clempson, Greg R. Fishbone, Ebony McKenna, Shana Norris, Marlene Perez and Janette Rallison, together with guest authors. There’s a great book giveaway running until the end of November 2011 if you’d like to nominate your favourite funny books.
This was inspired by an interview with me at Bookhi.
