Kensy and Max- do you want to be the first to know?

As I mentioned in the last Newsletter, there have been lots of requests by email and on the blog, for more information about the new series, Kensy and Max. The second draft is with my editor and publisher as we speak and we have, in the last week, sat down and worked out many of the details.

I am so excited about the characters, the storyline, the illustrations – pretty much every aspect of the first book and the series in general. I must admit, there are more than a few butterflies in my tummy; I just hope that the fans enjoy it too!

I am delighted that we will be able to REVEAL more about the series in the October Newsletter as we felt that Newsletter subscribers should be the first to know!

So, please, be an ambassador and, if you have friends who like Alice-Miranda or Clementine Rose or, for that matter, friends who might be interested in an action packed spy series featuring boy and girl twins, encourage them to subscribe to the Newsletter via the website.

    I haven’t really thought that far ahead Jasmine but it does sound like a good idea – it’s all just about time really and how much extra time I can dedicate to that side of things without impinging too much on the writing. I love the characters so much – I can’t wait to share them with you!

    Best wishes,

    Hi Lucy,

I just read Clementine Rose and the Wedding Wobbles, I am so confused who Aunt Violet is now?? And what happened to Clementine’s parents and how much information the book gives.
It is really good though probably one of my favourite Clementine Rose books.

    Hi Grace,

    You might just need to go back and read it again so it’s clear in your mind but if you remember I revealed much earlier in the series that Aunt Violet had a daughter called Eliza. She was Clemmie’s real mother and Clarissa’s first cousin. She gave Clemmie to Clarissa because she was sick and knew that she was going to pass away so Aunt Violet is actually Clemmie’s grandmother. Clemmie’s parents sadly both died but she’s very much loved by Clarissa and her new husband Drew and her stepbrother Will. I wonder if there might be some additions to the family soon :).

    Best wishes,

Hi Mrs Harvey,
Can’t wait for Kensy and Max to come out. I just finished Alice Miranda in Hollywood and absolutely loved it. Just the fact that you have written K and M has already got my hopes up to the highest. No rush but when do you think a new CM will come out comsidering that you just launched a new AM book? P.S. Thanks for giving me the joy of reading!!!!!

    Hi Jemima,

    I hope that you will enjoy Kensy and Max – I’m having a ball writing the stories and can’t wait for everyone to meet them. It’s a bit nerve racking too! I’m so pleased that you loved Alice-Miranda in Hollywood – it was fun to write too. I am currently writing the second Kensy and Max book and will then be editing the first one so it can be ready for March release. I’ll then be working on a new Clemmie and then another AM. The timing for releases will be a little different in 2018 due to Kensy and Max being launched.

    It gives me such a thrill to know that you love reading my books.

    Best wishes,

    September 22, 2017 at 1:20 pm

Thank you so much for writing Alice-Miranda in Hollywood. It is such an amazing book and I think you are absolutely incredible because you can write like that. I was just wondering if there was going to be another Alice-Miranda book and if you would let us know about it (maybe the title) in the newsletter. By the way, I can’t wait for this months newsletter. Very excited to enter the comp no matter what it is. Thanks for making my reading so much more pleasurable.

    Hi Anabel,

    Have you seen the newsletter yet? What do you think about Kensy and Max? I am so pleased that you loved Alice-Miranda in Hollywood. I’m not sure what I’m going to call the next Alice-Miranda book but I have the idea for it. It’s going to bring a lot of the kids we’ve met all around the world together for something really huge.

    This month’s competition is a fun one – you get to write about your teachers!

    Best wishes,

        Hi Anabel,

        Thank you- so glad that you like the look of Kensy and Max! There is so much work that goes into developing the characters’ profiles and look; I must say, I am really pleased with the profiles and how they look, too!

        Of course, you can enter the competition more than once.

        Best wishes,
