May madness

Three weeks on from publication of Better Left Buried, and it’s all been a bit manic. My office looks rather like this. messy-office-031

But all sorts of good stuff has been happening. Including this recent review in the Sunday Express for Better Left Buried, which also got another lovely write up in the Lancashire Evening Post. Picture me chuffed!

I got to host #UKYAchat with the lovely Lucy Powrie this month, and have been busy on the blog front, with an upcoming post for Sainsbury’s – more on that soon – and this piece for Hive on the rise of YA thrillers and what they bring to the genre as a whole, and another for Serendipity Reviews on using the truth as a base for fiction. And the lovely Kendra Leighton interviewed me for my Better Left Buried book birthday over on Author Allsorts.

In other news, I’m as pleased as punch with this:NYSM mug

Want one? Check out the Now You See Me quote mug over at We Have Crisps, along with loads of other #UKYA goodies.

And to celebrate the publication of Better Left Buried, I’ve made this Pinterest with lots of pictures of Sweden and the island, along with a playlist of some of Sarah’s songs that feature in the book. If you’ve not yet read the book, try out this taster over at Usborne.

Right, off to tidy my office!

It’s my book birthday!

Yep. That time of year again when I get to dance around a bit and gorge myself on this:

because you can now read this:

Fiction - Better Left Buried - front cover



And in the meantime you can read my book birthday interview with the lovely Kendra Leighton over on Author Allsorts, or discover how real life can be turned into fiction over on Serendipity Reviews.

Right, now I need some lunch. Tootles!
