Help I’m an Alien has been published and this week is the beginning of a program of launch events to tell everyone about the book.
I’m having a launch party on Wednesday 8th June. It has been organised by my publisher, Troika Books. Troika have invited bloggers, reviewers and people from the publishing press to the party to create publicity for Help I’m an Alien. I have invited lots of friends and family to prove to them that I have been working very hard at writing a book, not just chatting on Facebook, staring dreamily out the window or watching dancing dogs on You Tube.
After I have recovered from the shock of everyone knowing about Help I’m an Alien, I am going to visit some schools to talk about reading and writing .
With the help of the Federation of Children’s Book Groups (FCBG) I am visiting
- St Alphege Junior School and St George & St Teresa RC Primary School in Solihull
- Claydon Primary and Whitton Community Primary near Ipswich
- Dulwich Prep London in South East London
I also have a couple of librarian meetings lined up. One in London and another in Newcastle.
Wow! What an exciting couple of weeks. I can’t wait to get out on the road to talk to book lovers about my book.
