Hello, and welcome to my shiny new Tumblr! I am so happy you’re here. Sit down and have a cheesy snack.
What is #100DaysOfNormal?
In the lead-up to the publication of Am I Normal Yet? we’re going to spend 100 ROTATIONS OF THE EARTH chatting here about the book, the trilogy, and all the things that inspired it. Aforementioned cheesy snacks will be a big part of this. Mainly this is a big celebration of trying to be normal, realising you’re not-normal, and totally partying about that.
How will it work?
I’ll be posting something related to the book here EVERY DAY, along with Amy and Hannah from Usborne. There will also be chats and discussions over on Twitter and Facey B. You are so very welcome to come in and join the fun.
Will I learn anything?
You might! At least once a week I’ll be super-gluing some leather bits to my elbows and talking about some of the SERIOUS BITS in Am I Normal Yet? and why I chose to write them. I’ll also be talking a bit about my job as a journalist and relationship expert at youth charity TheSite.org, and how it shapes my books. Topics I’m going to chat about are:
– Mental Health (my MC Evie is recovering from OCD)
– F to the E to the M to the I to the N to the ISM! This trilogy of books follows a group of girls setting up their own grassroots feminist group, and I’ll be getting my rant on occasionally.
– Friendship – because it’s the most important thing EVER
– Relationships and love – I answer young people’s relationship questions over at TheSite. Something that has given me (limited) wisdom on all stuff love-related.
And how about FUN stuff?
There will be ample amounts of it. In fact, there is likely to be a 80:20 Fun:Important-stuff ratio. This is like the 5:2 diet of book campaigns. There’s going to be giveaways, quizzes, polls, events you can bring your actual human body to, and lots and lots of cheesy snacks.
So how do I get involved?
