Competition News!

May newsletter delivered and the winning word selected from the very many wonderful entries. Thank you everyone for taking the time to send me such tantalising words. In the end, I went with Jenny Nielson's word: HYGGELIGT, which is of Danish origin. You can look it up yourself, or wait until 'What the Knocker-Upper Woke Up' to find it and work it out! Congratulations, Jenny.

Thank you to Mary, the Librarian

and to the students: Caitlin, Scarlett, Thilaksika, Avani, Raphaella, Amy, Erin and Keziah.

Zoom call with the students

& Librarian of Y9 Book Club,

Eltham Hill School, London

7th May 2021

24th April 2021

The Y9 book club of my old school, in South London, has been in touch requesting a Zoom with me, after the students proclaimed 'Billy Lemonade' to be : "incredible, gripping, unexpected, unique characters and wholesome but dark." Thank you, Eltham Hill School Y9 Book Club!

54 UK Amazon reviews ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ for 'Billy Lemonade', but what's next on the writing horizon?

'What the Knocker-Upper Woke Up', that's what! And you can be part of it. All you have to do, is subscribe to my email, below (to receive my monthly newsletters), then send me a word, any word, but the more obscure the better. Think 'gorgonian', or 'lollygag', perhaps 'cockeyed'. I will choose a word and write it into 'What the Knocker-Upper Woke Up', which is due out later in 2021. The winning entrant will get a mention in the acknowledgements of course!
