Somewhere between 18 months and two years ago, Chris and I started on a journey to create a book that we hoped would be something special.

Inspired by some of Chris’ original paintings, I wrote a story that I thought might have series potential. Since we made the decision to create the book together, it has been an incredible ride, and a lot of hard work.

We have had amazing support from friends, family and even people who up until recently had never heard of me! Now, we are less than 48 hours away from our book being available for all to see and it is still the most exhilarating and terrifying thing I have ever done.

Whilst the book was in production we took the decision to have some dolls created, both the prototype and the actual dolls have done a fair bit of travelling in the last few months – and have even met some very famous faces! Thank you to The Vamps, Scott Findlay, the gorgeous Eline Powell and numerous others who have been willing to be part of our journey.

Tuesday will not only see the launch of the book, it will also mark the launch of the Thunderclap campaign, and the start of our blog tour. Please be sure to check out these wonderful blogs over the coming week for exclusive competitions, Q&A’s, reviews and guest posts.

Now to some exciting news that I wanted to share, on Friday we got our first review! Thank you Mummy Pages for such a lovely article!
