Right now, my bed is covered in clothes and so are the doors of my wardrobe:

YDKM tour wardrobe

Next week I’m off round the country, to visit schools all over the place from Urmston to Banbury to talk about writing. And a lady who writes about fashion kind of needs to look the part. I shall of course be wearing my pink plastic Vivienne Westwood Melissas with the hearts on, so if I’m coming your way, check out my feet.

Then it’s back to London to do the Moonwalk (walking a marathon around London at night in a pink bra, alongside 16,999 other people in bras, to raise money to fight breast cancer), and then I’m off round the country again for another week. So I doubt you’ll be seeing much of me online (except for the blog tour – below). However, I’ll be having a great time. There’s nothing nicer than being invited into a school to talk to teen readers about books, and how to make them.

Meanwhile, I’m touring virtually, via the many kind bloggers who’ve agreed to host me on the blog tour. I’ve already been on Chicklish, talking about where I get my ideas from, Sister Spooky, talking about my playlist (and if you want to see Justin Timberlake in a leotard, check this one out), and Amaterasu Reads, in the Philippines, talking about talent shows.

Next week you can find me at Fluttering Butterflies (about the best and worst of the internet) and the Overflowing Library (about how my characters got their names). I’ve been working hard, so you won’t miss me!

Wish me luck on the walk. Twenty six point four miles in a pink bra sounds like an awfully long way …
