St. David’s Day is Cancelled!

I’m so excited about my next book St. David’s Day is Cancelled! The wonderful illustrations by the brilliantly talented Huw Aaron are all in place and the book is almost ready to be printed. It’ll be published in time for St. David’s Day – which hopefully won’t be cancelled! – and I’ll be on a book signing tour(!) during February (more details on this page soon). I’m looking forward to it already.

I can’t reveal the cover just yet, but here’s a sneaky peek at the title page and Huw’s illustration of Nia.

And here’s a bit about the book:

When their headteacher, Mrs Right – who’s most definitely wrong about some things – decides to cancel St. David’s Day, the Seren Wen newspaper team know that with just a week to go they have to act fast. They need to get the whole school to put on the best concert ever. But can they do it in time? And will anyone want to help them?

Can they save St. David’s Day?

A Trio of Signings

I’ve had a lovely run-up to Christmas this year with three book signings in three of my favourite WHSmiths shops – in Cardiff;20161126_112339

in Cwmbran – a big thank you to Keeley and her mum for this photo;20161126_151351

and finally in my home town of Llanelli.p1040381

There’ve been Welsh cakes galore – from M&S, who don’t burn their baking the way I reliably do –20161202_171118 and lots of interesting people to chat to. A huge thank you to everyone who bought copies of my books, and to the shop managers and staff. They’re all very supportive, and they’ve even agreed to have me back in the new year with my new book St. David’s Day is Cancelled. I can’t wait! But now it’s time to hang up my book signing antlers for another year!!20161125_211433

The Wonderful World of Book Fairs

This year I discovered the wonderful world of book fairs. If you’ve never been to any, give them a try – you won’t be disappointed!The first was in Tenby, in a hall packed with local writers and book enthusiasts.

I spent the day chatting to people about writing and signing copies of my books – bliss! The Tenby Book Fair got me even more interested and I signed up for three others – the Carmarthen Book Fair (organised by Thompson Authors)wendy-book-fair

the Carmarthen Library Book fair (arranged by Catrin Simon of Carmarthen County Council)

and Llandeilo Xmas Book Fair (organised by Christoph Fischer).20161210_095835

I thoroughly enjoyed them all. I’ve met so many other writers – it’s been amazing to discover all the talent in our little corner of Wales. And it’s been wonderful to see how many people truly love reading and want to support local authors. I’ve already signed up for two book fairs next year – in Narberth in September, and before that Llandeilo Lit Fest in April. I’m hoping there’ll be a few more to sign up to in 2017 too!
