In good company

Posted by Christopher at 9.21pm

I meant to post this up back in Children's Book Week at the start of the month, but at the time I was chained to my desk checking the proofs of Shadows of the Silver Screen and writing the first draft of The Black Crow Conspiracy. Anyway, I just wanted to say how incredibly proud I am that Twelve Minutes to Midnight has been included in Booktrust's 2012 Best Book Guide alongside some wonderful books from fantastic authors such as Philip Reeve, Celia Rees and Eva Ibbotson to name but a few.

As well as appearing in the 2012 Best Book Guide, Twelve Minutes to Midnight also appears in a Booktrust's Children's Book Week list of their favourite stories with inspiring heroines, with Penelope sandwiched between Roald Dahl's Matilda and Neil Gaiman's Coraline. I cannot tell you how happy this conjunction made me!

Until next time when I'll have news of heroic adventures...

Bookbuzz begins

Posted by Christopher at 3.24pm

Over the past week or so I've been delighted to receive some lovely emails from students who have picked Twelve Minutes to Midnight as their Bookbuzz choice. To find out more about Bookbuzz, check out the fantastic website where you'll find competitions, quizzes, book reviews and much much more. You'll even be able to watch a video of me introducing Twelve Minutes to Midnight and hear from a young reader who explains why the story gave him goosebumps.


A huge thank you to everyone who has chosen Twelve Minutes to Midnight as their Bookbuzz selection.
