The location was prime, the weather was typically British, and I remembered my pen.
Last Thursday, I had a top secret meeting with Wilts & Gloucestershire Standard at Octavia's Bookshop in Cirencester - The Bookseller Best Independent Children’s Bookseller 2013 - to talk about my picture book debut with Hodder Children's Books, 'The Queen's Hat', and to plot a HAT-TASTIC contest to win one of TEN signed copies.
Love Cirencester. It was my home for years and I studied at Cirencester College for a year, so it was so cool that the Standard contacted me about a feature & contest. The contest idea was theirs and I knew it was a perfect because The Book Sniffer held a similar contest last Thursday, which was a LOT of fun.
