A Book Launch Blog Post!

Suzy P 2

Earlier this week, I had a party to celebrate the launch of my new book, Suzy P and the Trouble With Three. It was loads of fun! We held it at a local independent bookshop, the fabulous Mr B’s Emporium, who did an amazing job of hosting. They laid on masses of great sweets, marshmallows and even had pink lemonade, what more could anyone want?!

The book’s the sequel to Me, Suzy P, which was released last year, and this new story sees Suzy and her family, along with best friend Millie and friend of the family Isabella, off on holiday in their caravan. Two weeks in rainy Wales don’t sound fun at all! And things get worse when Millie seems to be spending all her time with the beautiful and snooty Isabella, and Suzy doesn’t know what to do about it.

At the launch I talked a bit about Suzy and how she’s always doing funny, embarrassing things – based on the funny, embarrassing things I do all the time – then I gave hints about the book by getting people to pull items out of a sleeping bag sack. There were stuffed rats, marshmallows, value baked beans and even a bra being waved around the bookshop!

Thanks so much to everyone who came along to celebrate along with me.

Here are some photos from the event, if you wanna see:

People mingling and eating many, many sweeties (you can never have too many sweets at a party, imho)
Me with friend and fellow author, lovely Moira Young, author of Blood Red Road.
Me doing my signing thang. There were a choice of three colours of glittery pen for your dedication, oh yes.

I'm a writer for children and teenagers. I'm the author of the Me, Suzy P series, and just like Suzy, I'm a walking disaster area. I also suffer from embarrassment-itis. Ask me about the time I got my nose broken in a tickling fight, or ended up in plaster after opening a window or fell in a huge hole or walked into a lamp-post. There are loads more, as well... I'm also the author of the picture book Baby Badger's Wonderful Night. I have little in common with badgers.
