Thanks so much to everyone who entered my ‘The Girl in the Picture’ competition. It was incredibly hard to judge because I loved so many entries. There were thrillers, ghost stories, news stories, some great pictures, poems, a haiku and even a trailer on YouTube. You’re a very creative bunch, readers!

Fashion competition

I’ve just launched a new competition, via Nonie’s blog. (Yes, she has her own blog.) You have to design a bride’s or bridesmaid’s outfit fit for a princess. The prize includes a signed hardback copy of Threads with the cover illustration by Giles Deacon, and I will do an illustration of my own inside. It runs until the end of April and you can read about it here.

We have a winner

Thank you so much to all of you who entered the ‘Welcome competition’. It was lovely to hear from you and I really enjoyed your comments. I wish you could all have won, because it’s your support that makes the writing fun. However, there can only be one winner and (after some very complicated high-tech randomisation involving my husband and calling out numbers), that winner is ……… Nicole. Congratulations, Nicole. Thanks very much for the limerick – a nice touch.
