Buttercup Magic… OOOH! A FREEBIE!
As some of you will know, I received a wee stash (HOORAY!) of my new book, Buttercup Magic: A Mystery for Megan, (HOORAY!) a couple of weeks ago, from my lovely Publisher, Piccadilly Press (HOORAY!) … okay, enough of that! It IS exciting though, and I never quite know when my books are going to drop through the door. It is always a writing highlight for me and makes me fill up and grin stupidly for the rest of the day.
Anyway… Buttercup Magic (aimed at 6-9 years) is officially out on 26th April, the same day as my launch which is taking place at Clay Cross Library, Clay Cross in Derbyshire (see here for details: Buttercup Launch Poster April 2012 ) This is a bit different for me. Last October, I launched Grub’s Pups (third in the Ruby and Grub series) at Waterstone’s in Chesterfield (see pics here.) It was scary, but I met some lovely people – 3 fellow tweeps attended – and the ceiling didn’t fall in on me and I didn’t say anything too ridiculous. This time, I have decided to do a library launch to celebrate the occasion, with a couple of classes of local school children, but which will be open to the public for book signings from 3.30-4.30. I’ve been planning it for the last few days. It’s been kind of strange getting out of the ‘Ruby and Grub’ mode (which I’ve been in for the last two years) and getting into the ‘Buttercup Magic’ mode. It’s all good though! I am, officially, excited!
For those of you who don’t know, Buttercup Magic: A Mystery for Megan, is about a little girl, Megan, who moves with her parents to the beautiful Buttercup House, with its garden that goes on for miles. She makes friends with the little girl, Freya, next door, and soon comes to learn that Buttercup House is a very magical place. She gets to meet some extraordinary mice, a very mysterious black cat, and the beautiful golden dog, Buttercup. It’s a book about friendship, mystery and magic, and using your imaginations.
Now let’s move on to the main OOH! A FREEBIE purpose of this post… I am doing a book give away from my wee stash. So, if you would like a FREE SIGNED COPY… did you catch that? A FREE SIGNED COPY of BUTTERCUP MAGIC: A MYSTERY FOR MEGAN, please leave a comment below, of some description… in fact, take this opportunity to leave a completely random, nonsensical one, if you please. I’ll put names in a hat… or mug… or something, and get my dort (or the hound) to pick a name at random. I’ll then contact the winner for details of who you’d like the book dedicating to, address details etc… etc… blah de blah de! Results will be announced in a special blog post next Thursday, 19th April.
In the meantime, happy commenting and Good Luck!!!
