I am over the moon to welcome Mel Darbon to the site this morning. Mel is the super talented author of August's Book Of The Month, Rosie Loves Jack. You have probably heard about Mel's wonderful debut but if you've somehow missed the hullabaloo surrounding its publication, check out my review on The Bookshelf. It's currently my #1 contender for Book Of The Year

I am delighted to welcome author Lindsay Littleson as my guest today. If, like me, you enjoyed The Awkward Autumn of Lily McClean check out the prequel, The Mixed Up Summer of Lily McClean, and look out for Lindsay's new book,  Guardians of the Wild Unicorns which will be published later this year.
