Calling All P6s and P7s - Let's Celebrate!

There's a birthday coming soon!

But it's not for a person - it's a birthday for a book - my new book!  It's called Walking Mountain, it's coming out in June, and I'd like you to help me celebrate!

I'm coming to visit Queensferry Primary on Wednesday to talk about my new novel and the journey it's been on so far.  I'm really excited about it, and I hope you will be too, because ... I'm going to be handing the book launch for Walking Mountain over to you!

Every book launch/book birthday has the author reading a bit and smiling a lot and thanking people - there's always lots of people to thank! - but what else could there be?  How about some artwork?  Could there be some what-happened-next stories or poems?  Or maybe acting out a scene from the book?

How would YOU like to celebrate my new book's birthday in June? Whatever you come up with, I know it'll be great.  The best book birthday ever!

See you Wednesday and we'll get the ball rolling!

2017 Begins!

Hi there!  Happy 2017 from me and from Toby and Mal and a pile of books on a comfy bed - what could be nicer?  You're right - nothing.

Here are some mystery photos I took on New Year's Day - are they really reflections and ripples on a loch, or are they something else ... Send me your ideas!

What are you reading just now?  I'm in the thick of Philip Reeve's fabulous Mortal Engines series. Absolutely gripping!

I'm coming to see you all some time soon - looking forward to that!  Until then, 
Happy Reading!

Cheers, Joan Lennon, your Patron of Reading.
