Phew, that was the best July ever. And the busiest. I have many big thank yous to say.
Thank you all the fantabulous Waterstones booksellers who promoted The Accidental Pirates, created the most wonderful displays and got the book into the hands of readers, especially the lovely Seonaid who started this off. Thank you friends, family, fellow-writers and readers who came to my launch events and made them so successful. I really appreciate your support. And thank you everyone who cheered me on over the Internet, sent messages and offered endless help, advice and encouragement.
And, finally, a massive THANK YOU to all at Henry Holt and Macmillan Children’s Books.
I will be doing a round up of US news next, but here are some photos of the UK excitement.
