The first launch was on publication day, an event for schools at Chesterfield library. I read from ACID, talked to Julie Potton, Children's Services Manager, about the book, and then answered questions from the audience. There were some great ones! My agent and editor travelled up for the day, which was awesome, and some friends and colleagues came along too. It was lovely to finally meet DARK DAYS author and fellow Author Allsorts blogger Kate Ormand in person, too, and to see members of Brookfield Community School's writing club again, who I'll be doing another workshop for soon.

…cupcakes with a colour scheme that matches ACID's cover (including silver cake cases!)! Although this photo is a bit small, the spines of the books have 'ACID' written on them. So cool! The evening was fantastic – the library was packed and I was absolutely overwhelmed by all the support and good wishes from everyone who came.
