I had such a wonderful time at Waterstones in Kettering on Saturday 8th June thanks to the lovely booksellers and customers. This week, I’ll be doing my final signing for the launch of the third book in The Thirteenth Series, Nyteria Rising. So if you want to say hello and grab your copy of Nyteria Rising, I’ll be at Waterstones in the High Cross Leicester on Saturday 16th June from 10am – 4pm.
Thanks so much to everyone who sponsored me to run the Virgin London Marathon – I managed to raise £1200. Thanks to Tom Wren Photography www.creativebywren.co.uk for this amazing picture of Frankie Holah, Variety Team Captain, Tom Wren and myself after all the fun. My finishing time was 6 hours, 34 minutes and 04 seconds.
What a lovely afternoon I had at Church Langton Hanbury Kindergarten on May 2nd. I met with 17 budding authors aged 3-4. They were so full of ideas and energy. We had great fun talking about what authors do, and then went on to create some stories using pictures. Afterwards, I read the amazing Dr Suess’s One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish.
Imagine my pleasure when I woke up this morning to find this image on The Thirteenth facebook page. This is Theo and she was headed out today dressed as Val Saunders from the amazing illustration created by Matt Timson.
Such an amazing day.
Thank you to everyone at Waterstones in Lincoln for being so supportive before and during the event.
Thank you to everyone who came for their copies of Nyteria Rising and finally, thanks to Kate for such an amazing launch cake XX.
It was so nice to meet Amanda Thomson on her Afternoon Show on Thursday at BBC Lincoln, prior to the launch of the third book in The Thirteenth Series, Nytera Rising.
Thank you so much to Emily and Lynne at the Priory Academy in Lincoln for making me so welcome during my visit and to Gill from Waterstones for coming with me to sell my books to some very happy pupils. Well done to The Young Journalist Academy for a great interview; I look forward to coming back to you very soon.
“This week, Georgia Twynham, an upbeat successful author, came to the Priory Academy LSST to begin an energetic day of lectures, book signing and most importantly, give The Young Journalist Academy a revealing interview! Morgan Rycroft, the lucky interviewer uncovered what the author really had to say about writing”

If you just can’t wait for the release of Nyteria Rising, then check out the review from Priscilla of The Readableshttp://www.youtube.com/user/thereadables to help you get along while you’re dying to know what’s in store for Val in the third book in The Thirteenth Series.
“Val is on fire! Literally! Stand back, you’re in for an adventure unlike any other!”
1. There are no signs of slowing down for Val and her friends. Teleported from one adventure to another, my heart was racing wondering what will happen next!
2. Sci-fi awesomeness! Nyteria Rising is ramped up with amazing science-fiction elements. Great setting, characters, and gadgets. Loved it!
3. Very cool twists and surprises. Unexpected plot direction, and new character development made this story a page-turner.
4. Loved the characters! More characters are introduced, and I wanted to read more of them and their back story.
5. A new threat is introduced, and the pressure to save not one world, but two, weighs heavily on Val’s shoulders. The plot made for a very intense read.
