On Writing Funny Fiction!

12 Feb

Yep, I’m still blogging around the place, and today why not visit Maya’s wonderful Book Nook.

She invited me on to blog about writing funny fiction… you can read all about it here

Maya also gave the book a lovely review, which you can read here, if you so wish.

In Which I Do A Bit More Blogging

11 Feb

As I mentioned yesterday I’ve been visiting various book bloggers of late, where I’ve been lucky enough to be invited onto their blogs.

The lovely Jesse, over at the FANTASTIC blog books4teens, asked me to do a piece about writing sequels for his Behind The Books section. They’re harder than you’d think, sequels, y’know… read all about the fun I had writing Suzy P and the Trouble With Three here.

(PS if you search Jesse’s site, you can find the amazing vlog he did featuring a recipe for the world’s best cup of hot chocolate, which you can drink, Bojangles style, while you’re reading the books. YUM).

(PPS Jesse also gave the book a lovely review, which you can read here, if you’d like to)

Blogtastic!

nayu's reading corner header pink textAlthough I haven’t done an official blog tour this year, I have been blogging around t’internet lately, to help shout about the exciting launch of Suzy P and the Trouble With Three.

Over at Nayu’s Reading Corner, I blogged about best friends and the problems of hanging around in a group of three. You can read about it here. She also wrote a lovely review of the book, so huge thanks to Nayu!

I’ll be posting more updates over the next couple of days, so keep checking back to see where else I’ve been and what else I’ve been blogging about…

 

A Book Launch Blog Post!

30 Jan
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:
