little friend

Look what I found for 50p at Deptford Market yesterday! Isn't he a lovely chap? He sat all afternoon on the edge of my laptop, gazing serenely at me. I have named him Marcus and I am hoping he will be my storybook good luck cat.



Because we all need a bit of good luck when it comes to getting the word out about our books. But I was pleased to see yesterday that The Bookseller gave a shout for my book coming out on September 1st with Gillian Rogerson, You Can't Scare a Princess!. Fingers crossed for this one! It's bursting with silly pirate-y goodness. (Or badness, I should say. They're still pirates, for all they're so silly).



(Hopefully you'll be able to find You Can't Eat a Princess! at your local indie bookshop (best option!), or you can pre-order the hardback or the paperback on Amazon, or Waterstones: hardback or paperback.)

Edit: Did you see this amazing trailer for the French edition of fellow DFC Library book, Mezolith by Adam Brockbank & Ben Haggarty? Wow!



(I found out about it over at the Super Comics Adventure Squad website.)

If you're in Oxford on Monday, this 4:30 event with Philip Reeve, creator of Mortal Engines, Here Lies Arthur, Fever Crumb, Larklight, No Such Thing as Dragons will be fab. Check Philip's blog for details.

You're welcome, it's such an amazing book, so really glad to see the French giving it a good shout! People are still posting lots of stuff on the Super Comics Adventure Squad website, so well worth keeping an eye on it. :)

What a wise choice of name! I suspect that your Marcus helps you work better than my Markus does :-)
