Here it is - in the wild!

Posted on 28 May 2011

Well, pub day is here - To My Best Friends is out there, all on it's own. Now I just have to hope it can fend for itself. It's not doing too badly so far, as this pic from Sarah Franklin's local Waterstones shows.

We've had a few reviews in already. Grazia gave To My Best Friends a big thumbs up on Tuesday and The Sun's Buzz magazine rated it this week's top book and gave it four stars (read both reviews here). And thanks very much to chicklitblog and novelicious for their fab reviews and constant support. We're expecting lots more in the new issues out next week, so watch this space.

Also next week, I've written a piece about my best friends (and whether your husband/partner can be one of them) for The Times and a feature about the emotional life of clothes - starring me pictured in many terrible outfits over the years. Why oh why did I wear that orange dress to get married?! In theory, the Times is in T2 on Monday and the Mail in thursday's Femail section - but anything could happen, so who knows? Once the links are up I'll tweet them and post them on this page.

And last, but definitely not least, I'm featured - along with our house and very grumpy cat, Shinobi - in this month's This Life slot in Red. That should go up online on Wednesday so I'll post that link then too.
