celebration fashionista tea!!!

I'm not one to obsess over Amazon rankings (oh, no, I'm not), but I'd seen numbers like 647,876 for my latest book with Gillian Rogerson, You Can't Eat a Princess! and I was feeling a bit glum about how well it might be doing. ... But no! Yesterday after our workshop, My editor, our publicist and our marketing manager whisked me away for tea with Stuart at a fancy hotel in central London and gave us the good news...



The book's doing VERY WELL! The first print run was 12,000 copies and now they're already placing their order for the THIRD PRINT RUN! And it had only officially been selling for four days!!! Apparently the sales have been happening in the bookshops, not as much online, so that's why I didn't have a clue. Right now the book's selling at independent shops, Waterstone's, Sainsbury's, Tesco and just about to go into WHSmith. When they gave me the numbers, I was totally floored.



But then we ate cake. And amazing cake it was! The Berkeley Hotel had created an amazing Prêt-à-Portea, inspired by recent fashion collections, and it was all froth, frilly icing, brilliant colours and general yummyness. Then at the end, they even gave us lots of little cakes to take away, in special little boxes. Hurrah! I've never felt so spoiled. Thank you so much, lovely book team!
