I’ve been loving having two spooky books published recently! The Shadow Lantern, the final story in The Blackhope Enigma trilogy, is out in the USA and Canada, and my stand-alone teen book, Jet Black Heart, is out in the UK.
I’ve done a bit of speaking and guest posting about The Shadow Lantern. It was a lot of fun writing for these awesome US book bloggers, Candace’s Book Blog, Novel Novice and Unleashing Readers. There may be one or two more posts in store and I’ll put them up here when they’re live.
I popped into the lovely Candlewick Press during a trip to Boston last month and we recorded a little video. If you want to know about my experience with a ghost in an old country inn, this is the place to hear about it!
Meanwhile, I’ll be speaking about Jet Black Heart, published by Barrington Stoke, at several UK secondary schools in November. Because the story is set on the Yorkshire coast, it’s extra cool to share my photos and stories with pupils at local schools.
Aside from venturing out to visit schools, I’ll be hunkered down working on my next book. November is the perfect month to write another adventure with a whole new cast of characters!
