Finding Sophie Kinsella

Sophie Kinsella's Shopaholic to the Stars (Transworld, 25th September 2014), which sees Becky Bloomwood heading to Hollywood, raced into the charts last week to grab the No.3 spot in the Sunday Times bestseller list. The Italian edition of this seventh book in the Shopaholic series (Mondadori, 30th September 2014) is accompanied by a cover shoot and feature article with Grazia Italy. The novel publishes in the US and Canada on October 21st and then throughout the world.

Familiar to so many throughout the world as the "Queen of Romantic Comedy" Sophie's first ever YA novel will be published by Random House Children's Books in the UK, Random House USA and Doubleday Canada next summer. Finding Audrey is the story of a teenage girl with social anxiety, whose recovery is helped and sometimes hindered by her loving and chaotic family. This new strand of Sophie's work, which blends family comedy with a touch of romance, is already creating much excitement.

Sophie also has a beautiful brand new website up online to engage her international fan base, a US and Canadian tour, a few days at Milan BookCity Festival, visits to Denmark, Belgium and Holland, and closer to home, she appeared at Wimbledon Book Festival on the 10th of October and will appear Guildford Book Festival on the 15th of October. 2014 is a busy year for this popular and extraordinary author.
