I will be supporting the week because libraries are awesome and I love them. Come and catch me at Harpenden Library, on the High Street on THURSDAY 11 OCTOBER 5PM.
On Wednesday 19 September 3.45-4.45pm I will be at Redbourn Library, for an 'Ask The Author' session. Tickets/spaces have been allocated, but I'm almost positive that you will not be turned away so feel free to just come along. Suitable for anyone aged 7-12 years (and their adults!)
NB: If you're interested in booking an author visit you can find out more by visiting my author visits page or just contact me through my website: Contact Camilla
I've just returned from a smasher of a holiday. No writing done at all but I have been reading a little bit. Forgot to take a picture of the book cover, but whilst lounging around in the sunshine I read Nevermore: The Trials of Morrigan Crow, by Jessica Townsend. As always, if you'd like to see my thoughts you can read my review on Goodreads.
I'm also ploughing my way through Wolf Hall (a really fat grown-up book) which I will be talking about on Radio Veralum and Talking Pages - when I finally finish it! It is good, but not an easy read and all about Thomas Cromwell who served Henry VIII.
One last thing before I go: To mark the dreaded BACK TO SCHOOL I will be launching a new competition. Watch this space...
Everyone else and his dog has been going away and now it is my turn. Things will be pretty quiet on here for the next three weeks and I won't be sending out any book orders during that time.
If you need to get in touch I can still pick up emails though.
You must all know what a HUGE fan of The Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators - British Isles (SCBWI - BI) I am.
I've been an active member for over three years and started volunteering at their amazing conference last year.
It is absolutely brilliant and if you're a writer or illustrator of children's books at whatever stage of your journey you will LOVE this conference.

I gained so much from the weekend and feel privileged to be part of such an inspiring event. We were given the opportunity to network with all of the Industry professionals, from publishers, to agents, booksellers to contracts experts. We had practical advice on writing and what happens during the publishing process.
The best thing, for me, was to be able to talk to so many different writers coming from such a wide range of backgrounds, all with amazing stories to tell. It makes me excited to think about the future of children's books and what might be next. I'm making sure I'm a part of it!
If you're interested in the workshop for yourself, or a friend, Sarah has set up a blog that you can sign up to for more information: www.writersworkshop.blog. She also made a film of the event which will hopefully be on the blog soon for you all to watch.
There is always so much to get involved in - try not to miss out.
Welcome to my blog, a place where you can keep up to date with what I am up to.
