Firstly, some HUGE news that I forgot to share with you all was that Wintercraft was mentioned in the June 12th edition of The Times! There was a lovely article in the book section written by Amanda Craig, who wrote that Wintercraft is 'Huge fun and deliciously shivery' with 'a genuine graveyard chill'.
I think I only forgot to mention it because I was too busy bouncing around the room with delight.
And secondly, I have some international news... I wrote about a US publishing deal a few weeks ago - with the wonderful people at Greenwillow/HarperCollins - and now I can add a few more countries to the publishing list.
Wintercraft has found new international homes with publishers in Brazil, Indonesia, Poland and Portugal!
I'm really looking forward to seeing the book printed in different languages. If you are reading this blog from any of those countries, please say hello in the comments. It would be lovely to hear from you.
I also want to say a big thank you to all the readers who have sent me emails and messages this month. And thanks for the birthday wishes too!
It's been a very busy few weeks. :)
