YA book bloggers London meet-up

Hi chaps and chapesses,

Just a quick post to let you know about a potential YA book bloggers meet-up in London sometime soon. Please head over to visit Jo at Once Upon a Bookcase for details. It's looking like YA authors might be allowed in on the act too - yay!

Ooh, also... this week I went to the fabulous Tamsyn Murray's launch party for My So-Called Afterlife, which was loads of fun. I got a teensy bit lost on the way there, so arrived a bit flustered, only to be warmly welcomed by Tamsyn, her agent, and a glass of pink fizzy stuff. Perfect!

I was lucky enough to meet a bunch of Twitter and blogging buddies IN THE FLESH! They were real and everything, which was somewhat reassuring. Anyhoo, there was much writerly chat to be had, and I left the party in a stellar mood, with a couple of signed books in my bag. Thanks Tamysn!

(Almost forgot to mention that the Glee soundtrack was playing for most of the evening. Couldn't have chosen better myself!)


  1. Great to hear that your Twitter buddies are real! And signed books, there's nothing better!

  2. The London meet is a fab idea, isn't it? Here's hoping there's lots of interest.

  3. Thanks for linking to the meet up post, I really appreciate it!

    Glad you had a great time at Tamsyn's launch party! Sounds like it was a lot of fun!

  4. It's at times like this that I wish I lived in London. Sounds like a great party and fancy meeting real live Tweeters in the flesh! Excellent.

  5. You left the party in a stellar mood...but had to cope with one Twitter hanger-on-er. *Coughs* But wasn't it great? I really enjoyed it. Roll on your book launch. x

  6. Lara- Yeah, the walk to the tube brought me right down again. It's true. Aargh! My book launch! Eek.
