Two amazing gifts!

July already!

It's been full speed ahead since my return from Scotland. I've been busy arranging festivals and school visits and also I've been working on the final edits for my next book; White Dolphin...I've been given a sneak peek of the cover...and it's looking fab!

I will be travelling to Scotland in a week or two to tag the osprey sponsored by the UK, US and foreign publishers, so check out the osprey blog to read all about it and follow one amazing osprey. I'll be announcing the winner of The Young Times 'Name the Osprey' Competition soon too.

I was also treated to a suprise party by some brilliant friends who all clubbed together and handed me a huge cheque to sponsor two Gambian children through secondary school...I'm so thrilled to think that two children will have this opportunity. A huge thank you to my friends. 

We will be sponsoring the children via the www.bansangeducationalappeal.org

I was also given a beautifully hand bound copy of Sky Hawk, bound by my bookbinder friend, Rosy. She made blocks cuts of the eyes of the cover of Sky Hawk and put the image in gold relief against a blue leather background. It was signed by many friends and is really special. I've put some pics below. You can see Rosy's work including bookbinding, journals, photo albums and more at her website; www.blackcatbindery.com
