Celebrating a Star!

IMG_20160630_200653734Last night was the launch of ‘Strange Star‘ by Emma Carroll, a book I’ve been dying to get my hands on for months!

I’ve said before that Emma writes exactly the books I want to read – time and again. And when I heard the words ‘Lord Byron’ ‘Frankenstein’ and ‘deliciously creepy’ I knew this one was going to be no exception.

 

 

 

IMG_20160630_201053278I haven’t read it yet so for a full review head over to the fabulous Bookloverjo’s site to find out more about it.

But in the mean time here are a few pics from a wonderful launch last night.

One of the loveliest things about writing and being on this road to publication is all the brilliant people I’ve met along the way. Turns out people who write for children genuinely are as lovely as the books they write.

The fabulous MG Leonard author of the brilliant ‘Beetle Boy’ –  can’t wait for the sequel next year! If you haven’t already read it go grab a copy!
