I am SO excited to be hosting another post on the epic blog tour for the brilliant Wing Jones!

Wing Jones is the much anticipated debut novel from Katherine Webber, which was published earlier this month, 5th January 2017 in the UK.

Throughout January, over 40 bloggers have been / will be participating in the #WJphototour – a photo blog tour documenting Katherine’s path to publishing her debut novel. From childhood memories that inspired her writing to her time living in Atlanta and Asia that influenced the book to authors she’s met over the years right up to receiving her first finished copy of the book, follow along to see Katherine’s author life unfold! Keep an eye on the hashtag to see the latest photos!


As well as all of this Katherine Webber is also #BritishBooksChallenge17 debut of the month for January 2017!

About Wing Jones

For fans of David Levithan, Jandy Nelson and Rainbow Rowell: a sweeping story about love and family from an exceptional new voice in YA. With a grandmother from China and another from Ghana, fifteen-year-old Wing Jones is often caught between worlds. But when tragedy strikes, Wing discovers a talent for running she never knew she had. Wing’s speed could bring her family everything it needs. It could also stop Wing getting the one thing she wants.

The Kingdom of Bhutan

One of the best trips I took while living in Hong Kong was to the Kingdom of Bhutan with my mom.

It was incredible and hugely inspiring.

It actually inspired my second manuscript — a fantasy YA novel set in Bhutan. I wrote it during NaNoWriMo 2013, and started querying it the following spring. I got some agent interest, but nothing ever came from it. I think it will stay forever in a desk drawer now, but I’ll always be grateful to Bhutan for inspiring me so much.
