I Survived!

I have been published for nearly an entire week now and, despite my fears, I didnt get blown up, decapetated or run down by a twat in a van. This is very good news. Getting published seemed so too good to be true that I genuinely expected something tragic to happen to me to prevent … Continue reading »


Book Birthday Recap

Today is June 2nd, which means I am now an Author! It feels very nice indeed to have achieved a goal that I thought I might never get anywhere near.

Possibly the stupidest bookmarks a boy … Continue reading »

Signed Book Giveaway

I have to start this post by saying a massive ‘Thank You!’ to all the lovely people who have very generously given in response to my last post (How to be a Genuine Superhero). It is only fair that I now give something back (although not quite so super-heroicly). I have, just minutes ago, given … Continue reading »


Threes and Firsts

The past few weeks has been all threes and firsts. I saw my first 3 reviews of my book, I did my first 3 interviews in 1 weekend, and I tried Rolo ice lollies for the first time (and ate 3 in 1 day)! Which is all really exciting… and kind of scary (apart from the … Continue reading »
