This month we have launched the brand new Jacqueline Harvey website which is also now the home of my blog. I think it looks fantastic - it's been a while coming but well worth the wait! The website has been developed to be highly interactive and capable of frequent updates. There is also a place to subscribe to the monthly newsletter which will have regular competitions among other things. I'll still be blogging my travels too. The website caters for fans of the books, parents and teachers, (and those who enjoy following my travels) so there really is something for everyone. I'd love for you to pop over and have a look and please feel free to sign up for the newsletter too.
You can now filter the blogs as well - so just click on whether you want to see the latest news from me, Alice-Miranda or Clementine Rose.
The website address is www.jacquelineharvey.com.au
A Bookish Adventure
I started this blog to document an extended trip to the US and UK in 2012, introducing children to my Alice-Miranda series. It's hard to believe that it's just on four years since we launched the first Alice-Miranda title - and now there are nine books out in Australia with another five still to come. When I first came up with the idea of this precocious seven and a quarter year old, I had no clue that she would take me on such an amazing journey, not only in Australia but also across the world. I visited 37 schools while we were away in 2012 and gave over 80 talks - it was fantastic. In 2013 I've been on lots of new adventures in the UK - visiting schools from London to Southampton, Lancashire, Scotland, Newcastle and back to London again. After that I headed off to meet readers in Singapore. In Australia I've been to Melbourne, Perth, Albany, Alice Springs and Brisbane. There's a new series too - about a gorgeous little girl called Clementine Rose. She and Alice-Miranda don't know each other yet, but they will soon.
