Happy New Year to all my readers! It's exciting because this is the year that my new book PHOENIX will finally be published - so please make a note of the date, and spread the word - it'll be out in August! I'll be posting lots more about it as we get closer to publication...
In the meantime, you may be interested to know that as well as blogging here, I also post sometimes on the DFB Storyblog, where my publishers suggest a topic, and lots of authors and illustrators then post about it. This time, we were asked to write about the business of being an author, and how we balance it with actually writing books. We were also asked about our new years' resolutions...
If you want to know more, my post is here - and here's one of the images from it - my new notebook!
HI SF Said my name is Louis and I'm 10. I really enjoyed Varjak Paw and The Outlaw Varjak Paw and I'm looking forward to reading your new book Phoenix. I have just started my own blog! And I have written a review of Varjak Paw if you want to read it. Here's the address www.homeforbookwormslikeme.blogspot.co.uk
I'm a big fan!!!!
Hi Louis! Thank you so much for your comment, and for your kind review. I like your blog - keep up the great work! I haven't read Bureau of Mysteries, but it sounds interesting; I may have to go & do some book shopping now...
Hi SF Said I've just finished reading the second Bureau of Mysteries and its another really great book! One more for you to buy! Phoenix sounds grrrrreat! Can't wait till August. Louis
Hi Louis, thanks for the update! I'm going to need some new bookshelves!
And thanks about Phoenix, please tell all your friends about it... I can't wait till August either - I've just been looking at some of Dave McKean's illustrations for it, amazing scenes of flying through space... it's going to look absolutely brilliant!!!
Dear Sf Said,
Varjak Paw (the first one)is fantastic, I especially like when Ginger attacks and Varjak is still alive. I found it quite scary when Sally Bones lurks around the allys and has one eye.
I can't wait to read The Outlaw Varjak Paw.
Thanks for telling me that the way I get ideas for stories isn't wrong.
From Xwow a big fan! From BP school.
Thank you so much for that fantastic comment - that's really good to hear! I'm glad you enjoyed Varjak Paw; I hope you enjoy The Outlaw too... and Phoenix, when it comes out in August! And good luck with your own stories!
