A new book!

Hello everyone,

Clementine Rose and the Treasure Box
Clementine Rose and the Treasure Box

I am so excited to tell you that I have a new adventure coming out on the 1st July!  It’s called Clementine Rose and the Treasure Box and I can’t wait to share it with everyone.  We’re going to have lots of celebrations to launch it including at The Tea Salon in Westfield Sydney and in Newcastle and The Children’s Bookshop at Beecroft too.  If you want to see all of the events please have a look on the events page of the website.

I was so excited when I realised that we were getting new neighbours.  They moved into the cottage at the end of our road.  It used to be all falling down but now it’s beautiful and it’s lovely to have three new friends. Tilda and Teddy are twins and they have a big sister called Araminta.  The twins are going to be in the same class as me at school.

Teddy has a pet tortoise called Flash and I think he and Lavender are going to be friends as well.  I’m not sure about Pharaoh.  Flash hides inside his shell everytime he sees him!

I hope you get to read all about our adventure.  I can’t tell you too much because it will spoil the surprise but something terrible happens in the village.  Then something good happens which makes up for it.

Lots of love,

Clementine Rose xx

    Hi Nimasha,

    It’s a little way off yet but I will keep readers posted on the blogs and my newsletter as soon as there is more information to share. I’m excited too! I’ve read the first two scripts for the first two episodes and I think I’m going to love it.

Why did you call the pig in “Clementine Rose” Lavender the teacup pig?
I was at the launch at the Children’s Bookshop in Beecroft last Saturday.
I love the book you signed for me. It is so much fun.

July 10, 2014 at 8:53 am

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    Hi Lisa,

    I’m not really sure. I just thought it was a sweet name for a little grey coloured piggy (she’s almost lavender coloured). I’m so pleased that you’re enjoying the book. Have a great holiday!

    Best wishes,
    Jacqueline

      Thank you, Jacqueline.
      I have just finished the book and I loved it very much.
      I’ll be telling my class about it.
      I also want to read the rest of the series and try to find the “Alice Miranda” books.

      Thank you for a great reading adventure.

I love Clementine Rose Books and Alice Miranda books, they are my favourite book of all I’ve read. When I start reading, I can’t put it down and my mind is full of excitement. I like Clementine Rose the the pet disaster and Clementine Rose and the Suprise Visitor.

Rosie

 

Hi Jacqueline! Just wondering if Araminta- Clemmie’s friends meets Alice Miranda, because it says in Clementine Rose and the treasure box that Araminta would be starting high school at Winchesterfield Downsforvale the following year, so i was wondering if Alice Miranda would befriend her.
If you could answer that would be great!
From Rosie- again (:

September 10, 2014 at 4:00 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    Hi Rosie,

    I’ve left it open for that to happen when Araminta goes off to boarding school. I’m hoping to have a full adventure with Alice-Miranda and Clementine Rose at some point too. Have a lovely weekend.

    Best wishes,
    Jacqueline

Hi Jacqueline, I was wondering if in any of the “Clementine Rose” books we are going to find out who Clementine Rose’s real mother is and why she sent her to Lady Clarissa. I am still reading the collection, so I was curious…

Thank you.
Lisa

September 30, 2014 at 9:10 am

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    Hi Lisa,

    I’m planning to reveal Clementine’s parentage at the end of the series. The next book I’m writing will have a few more clues I think and I’ve already put a few out there. Hope you like the answer when you do find out.

    Best wishes,

Hi Jacqueline, I was wondering why Clementine Rose came in the basket of dinner rolls.

Thank you.

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    Hi Adam,

    I just thought it would be a very unusual way for a baby to arrive at their new home. It’s sort of funny and very silly and the line just came to me when I was thinking about the story one morning. Someone placed Clementine there in the basket but we don’t know who (well the readers don’t but I do) and over the course of the series I’m going to reveal some clues. Hope you enjoyed the story.

    Best wishes,
    Jacqueline

Hi Jacqueline, in Alice-Miranda in Japan it mentions that she saw Clemmie and Aunt Violet at the beach. Are you going to write a book about Alice-Miranda and Clementine Rose?

September 30, 2014 at 9:34 am

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    Hi Emerly,

    I’m thinking about it. Not for another few I don’t think but I like the idea of having an adventure with both of the girls.

Hi Jacqueline,
I’ve have just finished reading ‘Alice-Miranda goes to camp’. I absolutely loved it! I have read almost all of your books and completely love them. Can’t wait for more stories. I hope you write a book with Alice-Miranda and Clementine Rose soon!
Thanks for your wonderful books,
Jodi

    Hi Jodi,

    I’m so thrilled that you loved the book. I’d really like to know why you enjoyed it so much. What is it about the books that you like? I don’t know if you’ve read Alice-Miranda In Japan but AM mentions that she met Clemmie at the seaside. I am planning an adventure together one of these days but I’ve got some more books to do first. Have a lovely Sunday.

Hi Jacqueline Harvey,

I have just finished reading Alice-Miranda at Camp and I have written a book review about this for my favourite book shop. I have just looked up the new book cover for Alice-Miranda at the palace and I am very excited for it to come out. On the weekend mummy bought me the Clementine Rose busy day book and it is great fun. The Alice-Miranda and Clementine Rose books are the best books I have ever read. Please keep writing books.

    Hi Hannah,

    If you read Alice-Miranda in Japan and Clementine Rose and the Seaside Escape the girls have already met at the beach (and Alice-Miranda talks about it at the start of the Japan book). I am planning for them to have a bigger adventure together in the future.

    Best wishes,

How many more Alice Miranda books are you writing? They are my favourite series so I hope there are lots more. I am really excited for Clementine Rose and The Ballet Break in.
Is there an Alice Miranda 2015 diary?
Also, how do I sign up to the newsletter?

December 28, 2014 at 8:39 am

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    Hi Charlotte,

    I’m writing at least 14 Alice-Miranda books but who knows – there may be more than that. That’s how many I have contracts for at the moment. Yes there is a 2015 diary but you’ll have to find it quickly as I heard that it’s almost sold out. To sign up for the newsletter click on the sun in the top right hand corner of the website and fill in the details. You’ll receive an email each month with a newsletter embedded in it.

    Happy New Year!

      I was wondering if you were doing a launch party for Alice Miranda at the Palace or Clementine Rose and the Ballet Break in in Brisbane? I hope you are doing one and if so can you reply back with the details. I would love to go to one.

      Many Thanks,

          I have just started reading Alice Miranda and the ballet break in and I am really enjoying it.

Hello, Jacqueline,

I just finished reading “Clementine Rose and the Famous Friend” and I enjoyed it very much!
I was wondering if Agnes Wells was a real author as I tried to look her up and got no results.
I loved the “Book Bug” poem at the end of the book and I was after more poems and stories like that.

I have just started the new “Clementine Rose and the Ballet Break-in”.
I am sure I’ll have lots of fun.

My mummy makes funny voices for the characters. I like the Aunt Violet, Clementine Rose and Mrs Bottomley voices the most! 🙂

Happy New Year.
Lisa

P.S. I’m very excited about the new Clementine Rose book coming out in April.

Lilli

 

I love Clementine Rose and the adventures she goes on. One of my friend Emily and I love the Clementine Rose books and Emily dressed up as Clementine for our book parade. I think you are very good at writing. My favourite thing about your books is that you put some people who are not so nice and some people who are very nice in the books. I like this because it makes it a bit more interesting. I loved meeting you at my school Arden last year. I just started reading Alice Miranda. It is very cool. What I like about Alice Miranda is that in book one she changes the whole school to make it a very happy school. Love Lilli.

January 13, 2015 at 9:21 am

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    Hi Lilli,

    Thanks for your lovely message. I’d love to see some photos of Emily dressed up as Clementine – that sounds fantastic. I love writing the books and making characters who are interesting and yes some that are nice and some, not so nice at all. I’m glad you’re enjoying Alice-Miranda as well. She’s a great girl.

    Hope you’re having a wonderful holiday. Perhaps I’ll get to see you again soon.

    Best wishes,
    Jacqueline

Hey Jacquline!

I actually love your alice miranda books and have been reading them ever since I was 9! in grade 4, my friend introduced me to your books and I started reading the first one and I was so engaged! The personality and characteristics of Alice Miranda made me want to be just like the sweet girl! Now I am 13 and I have just finished reading alice miranda at camp and at the palace! I may continue reading it when I’m older too! just coz I love the books mysteries. I hope you continue writing the alice miranda books continuously and have no end to it! maybe one day, you could write until she reaches an age where she gets married or something! I can’t wait until the episodes come out, so I’ve read above ^^.

I would like to give you suggestions to the future books you may be writing for alice miranda?
1. Alice Miranda in Australia
2. Alice Miranda in Hawaii
3. Alice Miranda and her love
4. Alice Miranda and the Competition
5.Alice Miranda at Heaven

P.s just some ideas! I love your books! please keep continuing to impress us readers out there! xoxo I would actually love to meet you in real life if you would come to Australia :). In the meantime, have a great time writing! xx

May 11, 2015 at 7:20 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    Dear Caroline,

    Thanks for your lovely comment. I am definitely writing more Alice-Miranda books and have just finished Alice-Miranda in the Alps which will be out in September. I love the idea of writing until she gets married! How adorable would that be but I wonder who she’d marry. I think I know who Jacinta would like to marry :). Thanks for the ideas for new stories too – it’s great to hear what readers would like. You might be surprised to know that I actually live in Australia – in Sydney and I am Australian. I do lots of events around the country although I travel overseas to England quite a bit too. I’m excited to be going back there later in the year for a month and then I’m visiting Hong Kong and China too.

    Perhaps I will get to meet you someday soon.

    Best wishes,
    Jacqueline

      Hello Jacqueline! I only just read your message, because I had no more books to read, then I suddenly thought of alice miranda! then i was like to myself, omg! is there a new book out yet? (after alice miranda at the palace.) Then I checked and there wasn’t. I understand it takes a long time to write. Because assignments! So then I remembered I typed to you on your blog earlier in the year! I went through to see if you replied and I was soooo excited that you replied. I even yelled this excitedly at my mum! I was so excited when you said you live in Australia! I do too! Please come visit Cairns sometime. If you plan to come to Cairns, please let me know so I can get ready and everything because I’m not a person that knows everything in my town straight away. Thank you solo much. I can’t wait to read Alice Miranda in the Alps! only like a month and a bit away! I can’t wait! Please please please don’t stop writing the Alice Miranda series. I haven’t read the Clementine Rose books yet because I am 13, I think it is a bit too thin for me to read, for I read teenage/adults and even some young girls books such as Alice Miranda :). xoxo

Hi Jacqueline,

I was wondering how many alice-miranda books you were planning on writing I’m such a big fan. Also I was wondering where you get all your inspiration from? I want to be a writer like you and I was wondering what three pieces of advice would be for me?

April 4, 2016 at 3:16 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    Hi there,

    I am signed up to write 16 Alice-Miranda books but I’m hoping that there will be more than that. I get inspiration from meeting lots of children and from the fact that I worked in schools for a long time. If I was a young writer I would look for competitions to enter as they are a great way to focus your writing. I would also do lots of writing on a regular basis and always carry a notebook. I used to write a diary every day too and that’s great as often you forget really fun things that have happened to you.

    There are some writing tips on my website under the teachers tab.

    Best wishes,
    Jacqueline

Dear Jacqueline Harvey,
I absolutely love Alice Miranda and Clementine Rose books!
Both of them are the only series I like. I can’t wait for Alice Miranda in China!
I was just wondering which country Alice Miranda lives in?
I am reading your series all over again. I read all of them about 4 times.
All of your books are so exciting!

August 28, 2016 at 12:10 pm

    Hi Lucia,

    Thanks for your lovely message. I’ve never actually said where Alice-Miranda lives in terms of a country. I like the readers to decide for themselves – it could be England or it could be Australia. Hope you love Alice-Miranda in China too.

Hi, I love the Alice-Miranda and Clementine Rose books!! I’m up to Alice-Miranda in China and I don’t read the clementine rose ones in order. One question:Is Alice-Miranda set in England and if so, is Ita real place in England?
How many Alice-Miranda’s will you write?
From Miranda(Please reply!!!)

August 28, 2016 at 2:46 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    Hi Miranda,

    Alice-Miranda isn’t specifically set in a particular country – I want readers to make up their own minds. I will write lots more Alice-Miranda’s – as long as I still enjoy writing them then why stop!

    Have a great week.

    Best wishes,

I love the series Alice-Miranda it’s the best I got on of the books about 5 years ago for Easter but it was to confusing for me I started reading them again last year in my thoughts there AMAZING! Now I’ve read all of them except one, Alice-Miranda in China. I hope I get it for Christmas.
