I have some very happy news, which is that ‘Season of Secrets’ was officially released in Britain last Monday! Hurrah! You can go into actual bookshops and buy it (it’s on buy-one-get-one-half-price in WHSmith and Waterstones at the moment). Or you can get it on the Internet.
It is probably the most beautiful book I’ve ever had my name on the cover of. It has foil and varnish, and the most lovely chapter heading pictures inside. Even if you’re feeling poor, do go and have a look at its beauty.
‘Ways to Live Forever’ is still doing well – it won the Warwickshire Schools Book Award, the Concord Book Award and the HIllingdon Secondary Book of the Year, which is absolutely fantastic, as all of these awards are voted for by young people. Many thanks to everyone involved in those.
And last, but definitely not least, I have finished a first draft of Book Three. This is currently called ‘Tell Me The Truth About Love’ and has some of the same characters as ‘Ways to Live Forever’ in it – it’s a book for everyone who wanted to know what happened next. It still needs a lot of work (at the moment it’s much too long and doesn’t really make much sense) but I’ll keep you posted on how its going along.
I’m now having a week off doing things like updating this website. Keep an eye on the ‘Seasons of Secrets’ page as I hope to have some new things up there soon.
Sending you happiness for spring,
