The Art Fiasco Blog Tour

Tomorrow is the launch date of The Art Fiasco! Hurrah! In previous years, with previous books, I’ve always had a jazz-filled live launch with 1920s attire at various venues in an around Newcastle upon Tyne. But this year, sadly, due to Coronavirus restrictions, that is not possible. But never fear! Poppy will be lovingly released into the world with a jam-packed online blog tour, hosted by a fantastic crop of book reviewers and Poppy Denby fans. You can follow Poppy’s tour around the internet from Friday 23rd – Friday 30th. She’ll be delighted to have you along.

Here’s a lovely video review (vlog) of The Art Fiasco by Trip Fiction. I’ll be doing a couple of guest posts on their website next week about how I researched locations in Newcastle for the book, giving readers and insight into my process. I’ll post the link next week. For now, enjoy this delightful little review – with your sound turned up!
