Blog Tour: We Are All Made of Stars by Rowan Coleman

Today I am really thrilled to be part of Rowan Coleman's blog tour for her brand new book We Are All Made of Stars. For my stop on her blog tour, I am hosting a beautiful hand written letter than Rowan has written to her mother, make sure you read it because it really is very moving and a touching read. You can click on it to view the letter large enough to read.

You can also win a copy of the book at the bottom of the post, so make sure you enter that too! It ends on 5th June at midnight, so good luck! One entry per person please.

Thanks so much to Rowan, and Amelia at Ebury for inviting me to be part of the blog tour!

I mourn the passing of the hand written letter. There is something about a letter that is special, indelible. A letter can be tied in ribbon, or folded away into a wallet, between the pages of a book, in a way that a text or tweet never can. The paper, the envelope, the handwriting all means something unique. It puts a person, and their thoughts into one moment in time, and it keeps them there. It captures thoughts, and emotions in the same way that a photograph captures an expression. And that’s why I started to write letters again, and why letters became a very important part of my latest novel, ‘We Are All Made of Stars.’"
