Mabbitt Breaks America...

…And not in the way Donald Trump has either. I’m very excited to announce that Embassy of the Dead is going to be coming out in the USA sometime next year. Hooray for me.

Looking forward to being left out of the long list and returning to relative obscurity. The complete list can be found here.

This book was so good, it made me never want to stop reading it and I finished it in less than a day even though it is almost 300 pages long!

UK Tour Announced

I'm super-excited to be able to announce that I'll be going on a Mabel Jones themed tour at the beginning of June. I'll be visiting schools as far afield as Dorset, Swindon, Birmingham and Wigan. Woohoo!
