Good News, Everyone!

Yes, I know, I’m a terrible blogger. But there’s a bit of good news! (Well, if you’re a fan of middle-grade/YA fiction that is). Read on…

So, I’ve been working on a new book for quite some time, and it’s finally ready to make its big debut in the world. 🙂

It’s called Pieces of Sky, and it’s the first in a series of novels set in an elite boarding school in Yorkshire.

Now, I know what you’re thinking:

An elite boarding school in Yorkshire? Is this a work of fantasy?

And to that, I say … uh … how do you type the sound of blowing a raspberry? 😛

So, anyway, it’s set in an elite boarding school in Yorkshire, where cliques and status have no bearing on the students’ education. At least, that’s what the brochures tell you.

The cover:

Et le blurb:

Rufus Hogarth is an outsider, a loser, a nobody. He drifts through his world alone, and that’s fine with him.

But one day, at the end of his last year of primary school, a letter arrives on the doormat inviting him to apply for a place at a school he’s never even heard of. How do they know about him? How do they even know he exists?

He’s read Harry Potter. He knows what happens when you go off to mysterious schools you’ve never heard of. But his mum insists, so he has no choice.

If he thought being an outsider in a small town primary school was bad, it’s nothing compared to a school where cliques and status are everything, even if the school says otherwise.

Rufus learns quickly that this school is nothing like Hogwarts, but with the right friends, he might just have a chance of making it magical.

If you came here via the front page of the site, you’ll have probably seen that the book is available for pre-order now, and there are also ARCs (advance reader copies) available through Booksprout.

And if you didn’t, here are the links:

Pre-order on Amazon: Spend Money

Or claim an ARC on Booksprout: Here be freebies!

Is there another book on the way? Yes, there is. More info in due course.

And before I fill this website with everything that was on my old one, I’m going to play on the experimental version of Minecraft 1.18 for a bit. I want to go caving. *squee*
