One Week of Midnight

The Midnight Hour has been out for one whole week!

It’s not fully released, with some places sticking to the official pub date of 7th Feb, but it can be found in lots of shops! You’ve been sending me photos of your books (or even better, you and your books!) and I’m loving every, single, one!

I also spent two days in London this week doing Midnighty things.

On Wednesday I went to a training session, kindly arranged by my publisher and run by the wonderful Author Profile. I met fellow Chicken House debut authors Jasbinder Bilan and Marie Basting and we learnt about running children’s events (while feeling very nervous about having to perform in front of each other). Their books both sound amazing!

Thursday was so much fun! I spent the morning at the Chicken House Big Breakfast, where I awkwardly stuffed my face with croissants while meeting lots of nice people and hearing about the fantastic books coming out from Chicken House in 2019 - I’ll probably do a separate blog post about this soon. Afterwards I did a few stock signings.

 
Being goofy with my pile of signed (and doodled in) books at Foyles Charing Cross! (How do people make this look cool?)

As an ex-bookseller for Waterstones, seeing our book at Waterstones Piccadilly felt like a big moment. Piccadilly is like the Queen of all their shops (and, little fact, the largest bookshop in Europe) so it all felt very… full-circle.

Stay tuned for more Midnight fun! You’re probably sick of me banging on about it by now.

If you’re not, and you’d like to meet me in person for a Midnight Hour activity and/or signing, please check my events page for my upcoming dates! :)

Toodle-loo!
