The Travels of Silver Skin

It's been a busy fortnight for Silver Skin!  

Four packed sessions with students at Blairgowrie High School last week, doing creative writing workshops based on the novel - building up tension in a scene, using creepiness arcs and liberal applications of blurring agents (maybe you had to be there ...)

AND Silver Skin has arrived in Indonesia!  Okay, so it was just one copy, but it was a birthday present for Astrid Kusumawardhani that had gone astray for weeks and weeks and weeks, so I was SO RELIEVED it finally got there!

(There it is, in Jakarta!)

AND a librarian in Honiton (in Devon) said nice things (to read more go to Honiton Library's Facebook page).

AND, for your delectation, there's an entire conversation about Silver Skin with Susan Price* on her Nennius Blog - we had so much fun talking!  (Our chat will be there for a week and then it goes over to the A Conversation With ... section.)

Quite a time!

* Susan Price - Carnegie-medal winner, winner of the Guardian Fiction Prize, writer of the Sterkarm trilogy (yes, the third book is nearly here!), tons of other books and scary Archer Woman.

Its a fab book and really deserves loads and loads of success ... and what a terrific poster too. Hope you have framed it and proudly hung it on the wall!
