1. are you in Cardiff today? Well you should be! I’m doing a book signing in Waterstones from noon

    all of my books (including my newest book, Out of Tune) will be on sale, but if you already own any of my books then feel free to bring them along to get signed :) Hopefully I’ll see some of you guys there xo

     

  2. SO, in case you’re unaware, this is a late-night boost to tell you about my book signing tomorrow in honour of Out of Tune, my latest YA romance novel!

    I’ll be in Waterstones in Cardiff tomorrow from noon (I’ll be around for maybe an hour or so, depending on how many people come) so if you’re around Cardiff or have friends who are, then come by - you can bring copies of my books you already own, or buy any of my three novels in Waterstones on the day xo

     

  3. Anonymous said: Why don't you like head over heels? Can't you post it as a PDF? Or is it because everyone said it was like a proscripted relationship or whatever story that was

    Nah it’s just that I realised after finishing it and looking back at it that it wasn’t very well written and that the characters were a bit two dimensional and that the storyline needed tightening up here and there because parts of it dragged and other bits were unnecessary or sometimes needed more development. And because my writing’s improved since then, I’d rather people didn’t judge my books now on that, which I wrote when I was 14/15.

    I won’t repost it or post it as a PDF because like I said, I’m not happy with how it was written, and I don’t have the time or effort to fix it up. I hope you understand! :) xo

    Yes, I do, and happy to do an interview - however I don’t really like giving out my email publicly, but if you’ve got Twitter then follow me and let me know it’s you, and I’ll DM you my email address :) xo

    Hi - sorry, but it’s not available anywhere now! I’ve taken it down from Wattpad and won’t be re-posting it, and it won’t be published either. Sorry! xo

     

  6. Anonymous said: I love your book the kissing booth and was excited to see you at YALC at the weekend but unfortunately I missed you and was unable to get my book signed! :( I was just wondering if you had any more events planned for London in the near future?

    Aww that sucks that you missed me! I’m sorry about that - but I know how hectic YALC was; I didn’t get to see half the authors I wanted to, and I got to hang out in the Green Room and party with them!

    I don’t have any London events planned for the near future, but maybe I’ll mention this to my publisher, because I’ve had a lot of people around London asking me if I’m doing signings soon. The main issue isn’t doing the signing, it’s just that London is quite a way away for an hour or two of signing, and it’s expensive on the train - but I might ask, and if I am doing a signing, I’ll let you all know :) xo

Unfortunately someone's been selling info on book bloggers to desperate indie authors illegally and we really need to spread the word that this is illegal and not condoned by lovely, reputable authors like yourself and the other YALC panellists. Tumblr won't let me link here (the details are on twitter) but we'd really appreciate some support on this as it's making book bloggers feel very used atm =(

    Aww I love you guys too :p and I was so happy to get to meet some book bloggers - nice to see people off Twitter and Tumblr!

    Anyway - that’s horrible, I can’t believe someone’s doing that! :( I’ll keep an eye out for anything else I see about this, but if there’s anything you think I can do to help please let me know, it’s dreadful that someone’s doing this and I’m really sorry some of you guys have been affected by this :/ xo

     

  8. Anonymous said: Just wondering.. Do you write the romantic relationships/relationships in general in your stories from experience or from imagination/both?

    I draw on my own experiences insofar as knowing how nerve-wracking first dates are and panicking about what to wear to parties, but I don’t base any of my relationships in my books, romantic or otherwise, directly off my own experiences because I don’t like to do that, particularly because now my family and friends read my books, so it’s mostly imagination :) xo

     

  9. Anonymous said: I think why people are assuming Elle is a white (Not to be racist), pretty, and so on, is because of the book cover.

    yeah, that’s what I figured too. And to be fair, that’s probably partially my fault for saying yes to that cover; I was very swept up in the whole publishing thing! It’s a brilliant cover, though, and we were on a very short deadline to sort out the cover (like, two weeks, rather than a few months) 

    But I’d like to think that people don’t necessarily picture the cover models when they read my book :) xo

  11. the-me-uc said: sooo I read your books on wattpad and I loved your book heels over head I was wondering what happened to it?? I read the book multiple times and I loved it everytime! please answer...

    I’m glad you enjoyed it so much, but I’m sorry, I took it down from Wattpad quite a while ago! I really wasn’t happy with how it was written, and the storyline needed some work, so I took it down and it won’t be going back up or otherwise published. I don’t have the time to work on it. Sorry! xo

     

  12. Anonymous said: JG has released how many copies were sold of tfios so why can't you?

    I just don’t feel comfortable doing so and it’s probably the sort of thing I should ask my publisher if they’re happy for me to start saying everywhere that I’ve sold X amount of books

    And also, John Green is John Green, and has been in the book world a lot longer than my almost-two years so he probably knows what to do about that sort of thing :) xo

     

  13. Anonymous said: How many copies of your books have been sold?

    I don’t know that that’s something I should put out online for everyone to know :) xo

     

  14. Anonymous said: Maybe the US doesnt want to publish out of tune because ur other books did not earn them money. Printing books costs money and maybe a lot werent bought.

    That is, of course, a perfectly plausible reason. Only The Kissing Booth of all my books has been sold in paperback and that was very popular in the US. If there are any other developments with my books in the States, I’ll let you guys all know xo
