Sorry I haven't been blogging much lately - I've been busy working on book 3 of the Slated trilogy, in-between many other distractions & happy occasions. Here is an update on some of it:
1. Leeds Book Award
I was thrilled to hear some months ago that Slated was shortlisted for the Leeds Book Award, 14 - 16 category!
This is the shortlist:
Phil Earle, Saving Daisy
Sarah Hammond, The Night Sky in my Head
Sam Hawksmoor, The Repossession
Edward Hogan, Daylight Saving
David Massey, Torn
Teri Terry, Slated
This is me taken a short time after, looking dazed and holding the glass trophy: thanks very much to Nicky Busby, @Yorkshireimages, for the photo.
2. Hay Literary Festival!
3. Book 3 Title Reveal!
Oh, this has been VERY distracting! I've finally got a title all picked out for book 3 of the Slated trilogy - and it will be released on Thursday, 30th May! So check back here from 8 a.m. that day.
That same day there will also be bloggers taking part with the title reveal, interviews, giveaways & more!
The blogs participating are:
4. Aylesbury Waterstones book signing
I was there on Saturday 25th May - it was brilliant talking to readers and meeting up with friends, old and new.
5. But wait... there's more!
June is going to be busy! Here are a few highlights. More details are on my events page.
- Angus in Scotland for the Angus Book awards, 4- 6 June.
- speaking about writing for YA at Wendover Library in Bucks on 13 June.
- Preston, 21 - 22 June for the Lancashire book of the year events.
That's it for now, but I'll be back on 30th May with the title reveal. Byeeeee!!
