Guest Post – “My First Memory Is Of My Brother” by Katherine Webber

I am SO excited to be kicking of the epic blog tour for the brilliant Wing Jones!

Wing Jones is the much anticipated debut novel from Katherine Webber, publishing today, 5th January 2017 in the UK.

Happy Debut Book Birthday Katherine!

Throughout January, over 40 bloggers will be participating in the #WJphototour – a photo blog tour documenting Katherine’s path to publishing her debut novel. 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! Keep an eye on the hashtag to see the latest photos!


As well as all of this Katherine Webber is also #BritishBooksChallenge17 debut of the month for January 2017!

About Wing Jones

For fans of David Levithan, Jandy Nelson and Rainbow Rowell: a sweeping story about love and family from an exceptional new voice in YA. With a grandmother from China and another from Ghana, fifteen-year-old Wing Jones 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.

You can buy a copy of Wing Jones here or from you local bookshop

“My First Memory Is Of My Brother”

I’m so excited that my debut book WING JONES is finally coming out!

A huge thank you to everyone who has talked about it, tweeted about it, read it, reviewed it…and extra-special thanks to all the amazing bloggers for their incredible support! I’m so grateful.

I hope you check out all their blogs to see the photos of my path to publication and what inspired me over the years!

Chelley is kicking off the tour with the first picture, and she also is doing a giveaway of a signed, finished copy of the book – here !

Now, without further ado, here is the first picture of the #WJPhotoTour.

Let’s start at the beginning…

The first line of Wing Jones is “My first memory is of my brother.” Wing is the youngest in her family, and I’m the oldest, but my first solid memory is also of my brother. I was four, at the hospital waiting to see my brand new baby brother. Sibling relationships are a huge part of the story of WING JONES, and a lot of this stems from my own close relationships with my brother.
