Hilfe ich bin ein Alien was translated and published by German publishers Coppenrath in June 2014.
They have made a truly beautiful book, with illustrations by Der Anton. Even the endpapers are lush. But you’ll have to buy a copy to see for yourself!
Needless to say, having waited for 30 years, I had a massive party to celebrate. What are the essential elements of a British Garden Party? Rain, of course! Not enough to spoil the day, but enough to make it a truly British affair.
Between the raindrops, a huge gathering of friends – writers and non-writers – drank Pimms, Prosecco and tea, and ate cake.
My book cover was so brilliant I had it made into a cake.
I was thoroughly spoiled with flowers and gifts and great company. Thanks everyone for making my first book launch so special.
