A Cool Review for Shine in the Guardian

Shine by Candy Gourlay
'A precious and important novel that also explores exile from neighbours, family and country. The book is about reinvention and the faces we present to the world, whether it be in person, on a postcard or on the internet, all wrapped up in an exciting and perfectly paced story with a disturbing and dramatic climax.'
Philip Ardagh, The Guardian

Upcoming! Workshops and lots of talking

Before I go on holiday, here's a quick heads up about some forthcoming appearances.

18, 19, 20 August 2014. I'm doing a three-day writing workshop for South Friern Library in Barnet for 11 to 15 year olds. Stories, characters, plot! We're gonna have fun! They have only a couple of places left and the booking form has been closed but you can ring the youth team on 020 8359 3100 to see if you can still bag a place. Details

13 September 2014 (tbc). I'll be speaking to writers and illustrators of SCBWI Hong Kong. I AM SO EXCITED!

18 September 2014. I'll be appearing at the Manila International Book Festival. I'll announce timings and locations later.

20 September 2014. Shine - the Philippine edition - launches at the Manila International Book Festival! Woo hoo! Remind me to contact all my old classmates so we can turn it into a grand reunion.

22 to 25 September 2014. Touring schools in the Metro Manila area.

27 September 2014. I will be the guest author of Where the Write Things Are's Write Away class at the Canadian American School in Manila.

8 October 2014. I will be speaking at Warblington School as part of the Havant Literary Festival programme.

There's more but I need to pack now. See you when I get back!

P.S. I've been blogging over on Notes from the Slushpile: What Writers Can Learn from Illustrators
