So begins the next book: Katie and the Starry Night. I have mapped out most of it in little thumbnail sketches, and when I've tidied them up I'll send them to Orchard Books. It won't be this week though, as I'm getting ready to go to Glasgow tomorrow for the Authors Live event on Thursday. It's come around so fast! I'm very excited and a bit nervous about being broadcast to thousands of children... Oh well, what's the worst that can happen? (please don't answer that!). There is still time to register if you haven't already. There are also useful teachers' resources on the Scottish Book Trust website. Take a look HERE!
Other Katie news: The theatre show is scheduled to open in North London at Easter 2012. Soon I'll be meeting with a designer to plan how the story can be brought to life on stage in a way that allows the production to move to all kinds of venues on tour. I can't wait!
