Book tour

I recently went on a whirlwind mini-book tour, which took in a fabulous performance of Matilda and a new set of author photos, as well as book events at Waterstones in Liverpool and London Piccadilly. Those events were about 'rebels and runaways' in Young Adult fiction, and both were with E Lockhart and SK Wright. Discussions in both cities were great and went off at some amazing tangents.
My daughter and I are both huge fans of E Lockhart and it was wonderful to hang out with her. I highly recommend Sk Wright's novel, It Ends with You, to anyone who enjoys a super-dark YA mystery, and she's also a lovely person!
This was the first time I'd seen the samplers from The Girl Who Came Out of the Woods, which was exciting. I can't wait for publication in May, but for now I'm hard at work copy editing it.
