Hanging out at the Edinburgh Book Festival Author Yurt…

I’m just back from the Edinburgh Book Festival where I had the BEST TIME EVER!

Edinburgh is one of my all-time favourite cities, so to be able to combine a visit there, with the possibility of meeting lots of Model Under Cover readers was, for me, a dream come true! Even the weather was fab on the weekend I was there (15-16 August) – sunny and warm. I was able to sit outside at the festival for lunch and I needed to wear my new sunglasses while out sightseeing!

I had the best time doing my event!

The highlight, though, of my five days in Scotland was, obviously, my event. I got to speak and read to a full auditorium which was great, and many of the readers who came were already familiar with Model Under Cover. And I had such fun meeting my readers at the signing immediately after my event. The readers I met were so motivated and fun – and stylish. I saw lots of glasses like mine and Axelle’s and there were oodles and oodles of readers wearing Converse which I thought was uber-fab! I was also asked lots of really interesting questions during the Q&A session of my event – both about writing and about Model Under Cover.

I LOVE meeting my readers - and there were a lot of you who were so sweet and so excited. You totally made my whole weekend in Edinburgh!

I’d like to send out a huge thank you to all of the lovely MUC readers who made it into Edinburgh to see me two weeks ago. For me, meeting you all is the best perk of being an author! I love your  excitement, comments and questions and totally appreciate your interest in my Model Under Cover book series. While I think writing is the best thing in the world to do, and I’d be doing it even if no one read what I wrote, still…being able to share what I write and hear feedback from readers like you is something really, really special that goes straight to my heart! THANK YOU!!!

I’d also like to send a huge thank you to the fabulous organisers at the Edinburgh Book Festival. Everything was so beautifully organised and they’d thought of every little detail to make the day special and smooth for us authors. I really hope I’ll be invited back!

THANK YOU MUC READERS!
