I am so excited to announce that in September we are bringing out the Alice-Miranda Diary for 2014. Inside there are lots of fun things including quizzes, advice pages, lots of space for you to write and there's even an enrolment form to sign up and join my school, Winchesterfield-Downsfordvale Academy for Proper Young Ladies. I can't wait until it comes out - at exactly the same time as my new book, Alice-Miranda Shines Bright. I wanted to give you a sneak peek at the covers. I'm helping my best grown up friend Jacqueline Harvey with the final proofreading on the story now, so we'd best get back to it.
Have a wonderful weekend.
Lots of love,
PS Thanks to Allerme for letting me know I had written the wrong title above - I must have been tired from all my adventures! Of course the new book is Alice-Miranda Shines Bright, not Takes the Lead (that one has just been released in the United States with the title Alice-Miranda Takes the Stage)
