Friday already? How did THAT happen?!

This week has been intense. I've been writing. Properly writing in a way I haven't done for a very long time. I don't want to go on about it too much in case I jinx it. Let's just say it's going well so far.

Something nice happened this week: ENTANGLED was reviewed in Books for Keeps. BfK is pretty much the most important children's book magazine we've got over on this side of the pond so I was particularly chuffed that my little book got a mention. If you want to check out the full review, have a look here. Here's the last little bit though... the bit that's helped me get through this week's writing:

Grace is a psychologically convincing troubled teenager and her strange predicament is in itself the stuff of dreams. Cat Clarke handles her multi-layered story with skill and introduces a bold twist at the end but Reader, you must read it yourself... A most accomplished and daring debut novel.

How nice is that?! Thanks, Books for Keeps!

In other news... well, you'll just have to watch this space for other news. *adopts secret smile*

Here's Taylor Kitsch to wish you all a happy weekend...

Happy weekend, y'all? Don't I look mighty fine in eye-liner?!


  1. Brilliant review!! I am a blogger and was interested in reviewing Entangled. What do I have to do? Are ARCs still available?

  2. WOO for your BfK review, Cat! Go you!

    And oh hai Taylor...

  3. Yay for the awesome review!! :-) I want to review ENTANGLED, only I'm very lazzzzzy... :P

  4. Yay for your review in BFK :) and Taylor, yes please!? ;)

  5. Franny: I don't think there are any ARCs left, but you can always try contacting the publisher (Quercus) just in case.

    Thank you Iffath, Megha, and Raimy-rawr! Megha - I'd also be too lazy to review ENTANGLED!

  6. Megha and Cat: Sometimes the books that really blow you away are the hardest to review, because they strike you completely speechless besides incessant squeeing and hyperventilating.

    Yay for the great review/s! And fantastic work with your writing! :) Wish it was going so well with me. :P

  7. Exactly -- what Izzy said. That's why I can't review THE UNDROWNED CHILD or ENTANGLED or ANGEL and a LOAD of other books.

    Cat: No, no, really, this book DESERVES a review!!! It's AWESOME. But I'm really lazy.
