Today is a very special day. It’s officially 7th Feb 2019. This date always had a rather magical ring to it and this is because it is my BOOK BIRTHDAY!!!!
That means that Asha And The Spirit Bird is officially published today. You can now buy it in any bookshop or online. A very exciting moment in my journey to publication – and one which I have loved. I’ll be sharing more news about today’s events a little bit later but for the moment, I’m going to share the photo of Asha And The Spirit Bird with its own special spot on the shelf in my local Waterstones.
And look! It’s got one of those special notes with a quick summary of the story (and it says it’s brilliant!) Hope you all agree with that comment. It totally made my day so huge thanks to the lovely bookseller who wrote that!
On 23rd Jan I went up to London to take part in a really fun breakfast party. Chickenhouse had got together all their debuts and other authors with new books to share in 2019. We stuffed a lot of pastries and washed them down with hot tea - yum! The wonderful team made sure we all met some of the lovely bookish guests and I got to chat to the organisers of The Imagine Festival - where I'll be doing an event on 24th Feb - can't wait!
And then I did some book signing at Foyles on Charingcross Road! It was the first time I'd thought about my author signature - so here's the moment I decided what it should be. Hope you like!
