The third Electrigirl book is here! ELECTRIGIRL AND THE INVISIBLE THIEVES sees our three intrepid heroes, Holly, Joe and Imogen, facing a peculiar spate of thefts in their home town of Bluehaven. Someone is nicking small items from shops and playing pranks on people – in broad daylight! How are they getting away with it? Could it be that the thieves are…invisible?! (Spoiler: yes)
To celebrate the release of our third book together, Cathy Brett and I hosted a launch party last Friday at the wonderful Blackwells bookshop in Oxford. We had SUCH a good evening! I took along the city skyline I’d painted for my daughter’s superhero party in April, and we had some masks, capes, and photo booth props so that everyone there could have a go at dressing up! And I made a bazillion cupcakes with icing to match the book colours.
The book is dedicated to the daughter of Bill Moulford, a good friend who died two years ago and who tried to explain electricity to me when I was writing the first book (he was FAR too clever for me, being a rocket scientist!). Bill appears in the book as a super-clever doctor who creates an ‘electron stabiliser’ to help Holly control her powers.
We really hope everyone enjoys the new book as much as we’ve loved working on it. I honestly think with every new book we get better and better – and I’m blown away by Cathy’s art work yet again! If you’ve read Electrigirl and the Invisible Thieves and enjoyed it, please do leave us a review on Amazon, because it makes such a difference to the number of people we can reach! (And we’d LOVE to do a Book 4, so we need to spread the Electrigirl word, folks!)
