Infinite Sky is out in the world...

Apologies if you already know this, because it's all I've talked about for forever, but, yep, my first book is out, and available in all good book shops and all good online places too.

The day it launched, I was bed-ridden with a chest (and lung!) infection, but I had the loveliest time. My publisher and agent sent me enormous bunches of flowers, which I was too ill and short of vases to display properly.

Ill face, body and hair + party dress, champagne and flowers = really sexy actually.

My friends bought me champagne, which they passed through the door to me as though I had bubonic plague, and my best friend risked it all by coming round to make me the most nutritious dinner of my life. Later, we launched a heart-shaped paper lantern covered in our dearest wishes into the sky.

It plummeted after a few seconds.

Since then, I have been lucky enough to get reviews in all The Big Guys (Telegraph, Guardian, Times), and to cut a long story short, they basically said the book is pretty  s w e e t.

I also did a signing at Derby Waterstones, where we sold out of books in the first hour, and I wore really high shoes, and tried not to walk like a heron.

My nan and my best friend queuing up to meet me.

So, thanks so much to all of you who have bought my book, and sent nice messages saying that you enjoyed it, I never ever get tired of receiving them. Please don't forget to recommend it to others too, if you liked it, (and even if you didn't.)
