YA Shot Blog Tour: Interview with Sangu Mandanna + Win a Signed Copy of THE LOST GIRL!

  Welcome to my stop on the YA Shot blog tour! I’m delighted to interview Sangu Mandanna, author of YA sci-fi The Lost Girl, fellow Author Allsort, and YA Shot official author.

Books Read in April + Review of BETTER LEFT BURIED

In April, I had the pleasure of reading a couple of really excellent manuscripts by author friends — which I annoyingly can’t share anything about! More officially, I read: Snuff by Terry Pratchett — As a teenager, lots of my pocket money went on Discworld novels. My favourite book was Small Gods, and I had crushes on Casanunda and Sam Vimes. So after Terry Pratchett’s sad passing, I was prompted to finally pick up the one unread Discworld on my shelves. Snuff was a tougher read than I expected it to be, but it was a fond reminder of some favourite characters. The Visitors by Rebecca Mascull — Adult literary fiction about a deafblind girl in...

UKYA Extravaganza Blog Tour: My First Video Interview!

Today’s my stop on the UKYA Extravaganza blog tour, and I’ve headed to Splustbookworms’ YouTube channel for an interview. We chatted all sorts, including Glimpse, writing YA fiction, and some of my favourite books. Thomas and Sophie of Splustbookworms have been brilliant — they’re loads of fun, as you can probably guess from the video! I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on their channel. Here it is… (Go easy on me – it’s my first ever video, eek!)     Share...

Interview with Ghostwriter Emma Newrick

Today, I’m delighted to be interviewing Emma Newrick. Emma and I studied at university together, and Emma has since gone on to do amazing writerly things — including ghostwriting. Not knowing much about ghostwriting, but being very intrigued by it, I decided to ask her some questions. Though I am slightly sad her work does not involve this…   …it’s still fascinating stuff. Read on…   Hi Emma! Tell us a little about yourself. I’m an English literature graduate from Durham university, and my favourite things are border collies, 1950s novelty print dresses, Earl Grey tea, reading, and writing, not necessarily in that...

Interview with Kate Ormand, Author of DARK DAYS

I’m excited to welcome Kate Ormand to the blog. Kate is a hugely successful writer, with not one, but five books scheduled to be published over the next year and a half! The newest-announced of which, The Wanderers, a YA paranormal about shapeshifting horses, sounds right up my street. (Find it on Goodreads here.) Today, I’m interviewing Kate about her debut novel — Dark Days, a YA dystopian action-romance which releases in the UK and US on June 3rd. I was lucky enough to read a proof of Dark Days and really enjoyed it — it’s a hugely adrenaline-packed, fast-paced read. You can check out my review here. Blurb from Goodreads: The future world has...
