Hello everyone,
I thought I would let you know about a blog of my friend's that I've recently started co-writing on: Coffee and Kiwis.
If you can go there you should be able to see my most recent post "This Snow is Crazy" so why not go and have a look?

You Don't Know Me

So, yesterday, among other updates, I told you that we now know that Sophia Bennett's newest book will be called You Don't Know Me and will be out in May. Today I thought I would go into more detail about the book as well as showing you the cover. Sophia says (in this post) this about her next book:
"My new book is due to come out next summer, as long as I can get the editing finished in time. It’s going to be called ‘You Don’t Know Me’ and we’re still working on the blurb (short description), so here’s my best effort at describing what it’s about.
Four friends love singing cheesy music together. But when they get the chance to go through to the finals of an online competition, one of them makes a terrible mistake. She ends up betraying her best friend, in front of millions. And she discovers a new kind of online fame that is scary, and painful, and personal. The question is, with the whole world seemingly hating her, can she ever explain the truth?
My main characters are Sasha Bayley and Rose Ireland. But look out for a boy called Elliot in this book. What he does isn’t always entirely open, or entirely legal. Sometimes, it’s the rulebreakers who are the most fun characters to write."
She also says (in this post):
"You Don’t Know Me, is currently being edited by the wonderful Imogen Cooper at Chicken House, and is due to come out in May (as long as I can do the rewrites in time)."
It looks set to be an absolutely amazing book! And it looks like it'll be following The Look (Sophia's last book) in terms of bright coloured pages. The Look had bright pink pages and it looks like You Don't Know Me will have bright turquosie pages, which is awesome. I don't know about you, but I can't wait for this book.

So How About Some Updates?

Well, it's been a while. A few months infact, which is bad, really bad. So, apologies for not posting in so long, but I am determined to post much more frequently from now on. I shall make it one of my New Year's resolutions. Speaking of which, can you believe it's 2013? I sincerely hope you all have a very happy New Year and that you had a wonderful Christmas.
So how about some updates?
In this post Sophia Bennett told us that she's written a fifth book and it is currently being edited. It's due to come out in May and will be called You Don't Know Me. Are you as excited as I am about this new book? I can't wait to find out more of what it's about.
Hopefully I'll be able to post with some more news soon,
