Jacqueline Wilson E Book Release!

One of the most enjoyable things this summer  was being contacted by Jacqueline Wilson's UK publisher and asked to be on the Blog Tour for her e book releases! Here's some more information-- We'll kick the tour off 13 October, but the books are available now! I don't usually purchase e books, but when Picky Reader was going through her Wilson phase, it would have been easier to buy them this was than travel to England and cart them home. Now if the rest of Michael Lawrence's Jiggy McCue books were available...

Children’s titles by bestselling British author, Dame Jacqueline Wilson now available in the US as Ebooks

“She’s so good it’s exhilarating” - The Guardian
“Jacqueline Wilson does so much to make reading relevant, fun and addictive” –
“She should be prescribed for all cases of reading reluctance” – Independent on Sunday
 Jacqueline Wilson, known throughout Britain as the most popular writer for girls aged 7-15 has sold over 35 million copies of her books in the UK.  She was appointed as the Children’s Laureate from 2005-7 (a prestigious UK award which celebrates outstanding achievement in children’s books) and received an OBE from the Queen in 2002 for services to literacy in schools.   In 2008 she was further awarded a DBE in the Queen’s New Year Honour’s List, making her Dame Jacqueline Wilson.

Her books contain universal themes popular with children all over the world.  Family life, friendship and bullying are regularly featured and her characters often find themselves in difficult circumstances.  Her books have been praised for their unique blend of realism and humor, and she is loved by children and parents alike for her non-patronising approach to writing for children.

The book trailers which accompany Jacqueline Wilson’s releases have become a much-anticipated part of the build up to her new releases. Her YouTube channel has over 2,000 subscribers and the most popular trailer, “The Worst Thing About My Sister”, has received 335,000 views.

For the US ebook launch this year, new editions of her most recent 9 titles have been created with exclusive bold photographic covers, many of which use imagery from the book’s trailers.

Jacqueline Wilson’s ebooks are available through all major ebook retailers.
