Wing Jones Photo Blog Tour - Day 2!

Throughout January, over 40 bloggers (including me!) are participating in the #WJphototour – a photo blog tour documenting Katherine’s path to publishing her debut novel, Wing Jones. From childhood memories that inspired her writing to her time living in Atlanta and Asia that influenced the book to authors she’s met over the years right up to receiving her first finished copy of the book, follow along to see Katherine’s author life unfold!

I'm very happy to be a part of the blog tour, and to be able to show you such a lovely photo. So without further ado, here is today's photo, with Katherine herself telling you all about it.

Another important family relationship in WING JONES is the relationship Wing has with her grandmothers, her Granny Dee and her LaoLao. Even though I never lived with my grandmothers like Wing does, I’m lucky to have been very close to both of my grandmothers growing up. My Grandma Kay, pictured here, passed away when I was 16, but she instilled a great love of reading and travel in me from an early age.

Want to know more about Wing Jones? Of course you do! Wing Jones is the much-anticipated debut novel from Katherine Webber, publishing 5th January 2017 in the UK. With a grandmother from China and another from Ghana, fifteen-year-old Wing is often caught between worlds. But when tragedy strikes, Wing discovers a talent for running she never knew she had. Wing's speed could bring her family everything it needs. It could also stop Wing getting the one thing she wants…

And the book's author, Katherine Webber, was born in Southern California but has lived in Atlanta, Hawaii, Hong Kong and now in London. For several years she worked at the reading charity BookTrust, where she worked on projects such as The Letterbox Club which delivers parcels of books to children in care, and YALC, the Young Adult Literature Convention. You can find her on Twitter @kwebberwrites

You can buy a copy of Wing Jones here, at The Book Depository.
