New reviews and posts...

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…”

And Booktrust has reviewed Swapped by a Kiss and Kiss Date Love Hate.

“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!

Meanwhile, I’ve been posting at the Random House blog about my book signing, and telling Girls Heart Books all about my computer nightmare.

World Book Day visits 2012

I had a busy World Book Day this year, with a great visit to Newton Abbot College. (See their gorgeous display in the picture!)

It’s my fourth year in a row of visiting NAC on World Book Day, with my first visit being the publication day of Split by a Kiss. It’s practically a tradition…

Read more about the day in the Herald Express.

The next day, I went to Torquay Community College to talk to a group of students about writing and blogging. We had a brilliant time creating characters and discussing books.

Saturday was my book signing at Waterstone’s in Newton Abbot, where I chatted to some fantastic readers.

Thank you very much to all the wonderful students, teachers, readers, bloggers, staff and shoppers I’ve met in the past week!
