Tim, I and The Uninvited!

Heard Tim Wynne-Jones read from his latest YA novel "The Uninvited" at McNally Robinson this evening. It's a book that is hard to put down; the various plot strands draw you in, enmesh you, hold you there, and the only escape is to get right to the end -PDQ!
Another masterpiece by the Maestro!

And here's a picture of Tim, I and "The Uninvited" in the background...grrrrr!!!

A message for my Fans!

Dear Fans,

Last week was a rollercoaster of emotions that culminated in one of the most memorable days of my life; the day I won the Silver Birch Fiction Award!

THANK YOU to all who voted for me. It was all the more special because the votes came from the very audience this book was written for; and that means all of you!!!

Hope you'll enjoy "The Silver Anklet" just as much.

Here is that special moment captured for an eternity by Janet O'Sullivan. Thanks a ton, Janet.

The Silver Anklet!

For those enthusiastic fans who've asked about the sequel; it is slated for release in November 2009.

You can pre-order on Amazon

Here's a sneak preview;

What if the only way to get rid of your worst enemy was to sacrifice your brother?
When hyenas snatch Tara's brother, Suraj, and two other children from the local fair in Morni, Tara and her newfound companions decide to rescue them on their own. Tara soon discovers that Zarku, her nemesis with the third eye, is back and intent on revenge.
A deadly game of hide and seek ensues, and Tara and her companions must work together to survive. But it is soon clear that Zarku is only after Tara; the others are dispensable.
Should Tara risk the lives of her friends? Or can she once again defeat Zarku and save her brother, armed only with belief in herself and a silver anklet?
