BONE BY BONE SUPPORTS ANTI-BULLYING CHARITY, KIDSCAPE

category_diary80I’m so delighted – Bone by Bone will be out in paperback this week! I’m donating 10 % of any profits I make to anti-bullying charity, Kidscape.

Here’s a short video with five tips for children to help them stop the bullies:

And here’s a wonderful statement that Kidscape have written for the paperback edition of Bone by Bone:

 

Bullying and abuse can destroy childhoods and damage futures. Kidscape has been working for over 30 years to keep children safe from harm and to give parents and professionals the knowledge and skills they need to ensure that every child is protected. We were the first charity in the UK to tackle bullying and child sexual abuse and remain committed to our mission to support and protect children and help them to grow into happy, confident adults.

 

We are hugely grateful to Sanjida for working so closely with us and donating a portion of the profits of Bone by Bone to Kidscape. Bullying is an issue which can affect anybody, regardless of family background, location or economic circumstance, and Bone by Bone handles these issues in an incredibly thoughtful and incisive manner, as well as being an exciting read. Kidscape supports families through the torment of bullying, and educates teachers and other professionals about how they can prevent it occurring. All the money raised through sales of Bone by Bone will help Kidscape to continue its highly effective early intervention work in schools throughout the country.

I’m also thrilled that Audible have bought the rights to turn it, and The Stolen Child, into audio books! I’m a big fan of the form – I listen to books most days. I’ll let you know who the narrator is going to be!

 

What do you think of audio books? Do you like them or do you think the narrator can distract from the story?

The Stolen Child

THE STOLEN CHILD

category_icons03

 

I’ve just finished the edits and copy edits for my second thriller, The Stolen Child!

 

   They stole my child from me.

And now I want her back…

 

For those unaware of the various lengthy processes a  novel goes through, after I’ve handed the manuscript in, my editor highlights areas that could be improved and I have another go at reworking those sections to her satisfaction. I finished that bit the day before going on  holiday – phew!
