things of beauty

Filed under: about me, The Summer of Living Dangerously

I’m looking through the proofs for my next paperback, THE SUMMER OF LIVING DANGEROUSLY, and it’s extremely cool to see that the very pretty cover design carries through to the inside. Have a look at these lovely title pages!

Fecklet has started school full time, which is a good thing for both of us. He’s loving it, and I really need the time to catch up on work. On Tuesdays he stays late at school to do Lego Club. He mostly wanted to do Lego Club so he could destroy the things he made.

Meanwhile, I’m trying to pick out shoes to wear to my book signing at Waterstones in Windsor this Saturday. There’s a pair of fake crocodile brogues which are quite possibly the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen. But I’m trying to resist. Also, my friend Michelle is having a Jamie Oliver party at her house the night before and though I have good intentions, I fear that I’ll end up drinking like seven bottles of wine and then spend my shoe money on tea towels and storage canisters.

Anyway, if you’re in the area, come to Windsor Waterstones on the afternoon of Saturday the 24th September. You can buy a book if you want, but you can also just taunt me for being hungover.

I will have chocolate.

  1. I want to join Lego Club…

    Those are the prettiest title pages I’ve ever seen 🙂

    • I know, Lego Club sounds awesome, doesn’t it?

      Thank you, they are very pretty indeed I agree!

  2. Have a wonderful launch party, Julie. P x

    • Thank you, though it isn’t a launch party, just a signing. When I have a party, you will get an invitation. 🙂

  3. Oh how I loved Lego… But I remember how painful it was when you stepped on a piece of it in bare feet. Ouch!

    • I do a LOT of that. Sometimes it’s just easier to wear shoes indoors.

  4. Blimey, it’s pretty, but I was stuck admiring that left page with all your book titles on it! Wow, look at you!

    • Tee hee hee. It’s my M&B titles as well as my Headline ones, which is why it looks like so many. I think it’s nice of Headline to put them all on there.

  5. OMG! Full time school? I remember when he was still a bump… and that feels like about 5 seconds ago. (She says, having just applied for youngest’s high school place.) Where does the time go?

    Glad he’s enjoying school so much.

    Lovely title pages.

    Enjoy your book signing!

  6. Lovely title page 🙂
