How long does it take to write a novel?? Blogtour bus still has plenty in the tank!

Today the blogtour bus arrives with the lovely Niamh Boyce. Niamh won the overall Hennessy Award this year. Her debut novel 'The Herbalist' will be out with Penguin in 2013, and besides both of these very important facts, Niamh is also an amazing friend!!

But before I hand you over to Niamh, two other interesting facts - firstly, after the most successful launch in the 26 year history of Hughes & Hughes books, there is a very good chance that RED RIBBONS, might get into the top ten in the Irish Book Charts - which would be amazing for a debut novel!  So if you're near a bookshop today or tomorrow, and you pick up a copy of RED RIBBONS, every book will help make this a reality:)
Secondly, just for fun, I'm asking people to send me in interesting pictures with Red Ribbons in it. I'll put a couple below, so you get the general idea!!! You can send them via twitter, facebook or email to phillips.louisem0@gmail.com The winner will get a very NOVEL prize!!!
So now, I'll hand you over to Niamh, who has some very interesting questions up her sleeve.... read all about it HERE
