SCBWI Mass Book Launch

Adventures of a Wimpy Superhero was one of the titles included in this year's SCBWI Mass Book Launch, hosted by Candy Gourlay. This is the sixth time I've been to the SCBWI Winchester conference, and it's always terrific fun. Thanks to everyone who helped to organise this fantastic event.

UKMG Extravaganza

I had a wonderful time at the first ever UKMG Extravaganza in Nottingham last weekend. It was great to meet so many other authors who write for the same age group. I blogged about the importance of writing for reluctant readers as part of the UKMG blog tour. You can read my guest post at Sitting on a Cornflake.

Thanks to Kerry Drewery, Emma Pass, Jo Cotterill, Paula Rawsthorne, Waterstones and the librarians of Nottingham for this great event.

Wimpy Superhero

Adventures of a Wimpy Superhero is out today in the UK. Once again, I have been very lucky to work with the illustrator Andrew Pinder. This photo shows the book with my three other September publications. Dorkius Maximus in the Low Countries is out in Holland, Monstrous Maud's Fiery Fiasco is out in Germany and Mr Perfect is out in the UK. Here is the UK Amazon link for Wimpy Superhero.

Nurdius Maximus

A new volume of Dorkius Maximus has just been released in the Netherlands and it's being given a big push with outdoor and magazine ads. I'm very grateful to publisher Ploegsma for getting behind it so much. If you can read Dutch, you can find out more about it here.
