So – um – hello! I’m new at this blogging lark but am very excited today cos my new website it up and running. And I think it looks fab although I can take no credit for this at all. The site was designed by the wonderful Gilbert and James (thank you, brilliant boys) and the manga artwork was done by the amazing David Shephard http://www.daveshephard.com . If you want to read the whole comic strip, you can find it at the back of my new novel We Can be Heroes which comes out very, very, very soon! On August 1st to be precise.
AND if you can’t wait that long you can read an extract on The Guardian Books website at http://gu.com/p/3vhk7 Yes, The Guardian – I can’t quite believe this either but there you have it!
So, what else do I need to tell you? Oh, I’m doing a blog tour soon. I was really chuffed to be asked to do blogs from some fab YA book sites so check out the blog tour banner for dates. I’ll be talking about writing about 9/11, terrorism in kids’s books, my favourite reads, top 5 childhood memories and lots more.
Right, that’s it for now. I’ll keep you posted on all my comings and goings. In the meantime, I feel I should mark the launch of this little website in some way. You know, like they do with ships. Smash a bottle of champagne smashed against it and stuff? No, not going to work is it? So I guess I’ll just name this website www.catherinebruton.com and may the god of t’interweb bless her and all who sail in her!
