Scribblemania 111

I've spent the last couple of weeks on the road with the new books now that Pocket Pirates Book 1 is out. I've been from the North to the South ( of the U.K.) and back again. I've spoken to 'thousands' of pupils and students and signed enough copies of my book to ensure my arm is almost dropping off. 
Highlights: I attended Oxford Read a thon with David Melling and John Foster  thanks to the delightful Anne and John Wattam, aswell as Bath Festival and schools in the south. Back up in't north,  the lovely Leeds School Library services ladies had arranged the Civic Hall for the day before heading on to schools in the area, mid week. 
This week ended with 300 student teachers at Sheffield Hallam University for a 'Read to Inspire' event and another hefty signing session. All organised by the lovely Nikki Gamble from Just Imagine. 
Huge thanks to John and Anne Wattam, John and Gill McLay and the Bath Festival team, the publicity team at Hodder children's books, the amazing Leeds School Library service ladies, Nikki and Neil Gamble at Just Imagine, Rory from Orinoco books who has supported me with book sales and all the amazing schools that were involved.
 Thanks also to all the lovely Book Bloggers out there who give up their own time and support our work and reach people online, sharing our work and events, day in, day out on social media. 

Huge hugs
