What would make a REALLY interesting and fun forum? How can we start conversations?

What do we say? How do we say it? This is your space. We want YOU to decide!

my idea is:

two girls called Hatty and Crystal (I am already writing this book) who escape from the circus to become drama stars (Sorry if you think i'm copying hetty feather) at the Apollo theatre in broadway. Hatty and Crystal are known as the bloody girls; so the manager, Emily, tells them to do a show. Hatty OK, cos she always talks loudly, but will Crystal forget her lines?

Like if you want me to publish

My Idea is ........:

There is a girl called Summer who loves inventing in school she is a year 5, and one day she gets bullied by two year 10 boys who are really mean who call her: Summer-Dummer and she hates it. Soon enough she gets called that horrible name by everyone even her friends, all her friends turn against her, so she builds a time machine and goes to the year 2914 she arrives in double town she's got loads of friends there but she has to go back to the year ere in double town!

What about a story about depression, or maybe a girl who has paranoia...

By the way, I would appreciate it eminently if you looked out for my two new books, Wave, and The Sisters Of Red-by Street, as I completed them yesterday and will publish them on the 27th of this month.

what about a girl who was dumped in the country side at only a baby and she had to survive alone one year alone when a little foundling comes along and takes her in and together they have strange adventures on the streets of Victorian London...

this is just a idea i thought of on the go in a few seconds!

the girl could be called kat but the foundling calls her emerald as she has green eyes...
or pearl yes... pearl
and then they slowly find there mum! and a big surprise happens...
they are sisters!

Just a thought...

If Jacky hasn't done one yet (she's published over 100 books) I would like her to make a book about an orphanage

Hmm...
What about a girl who mysteriously gets sucked into a mirror at her grandparent's house, into a land of the past. When she goes in, she needs to find the way out, but when she does, she continues to go into the mirror and ends up in so many different years...
Why on earth?
This is actually a book I've been intending to write for so long!

I would really like jacky to write a book about a girl called Evelyn Skylark who has a brother called Felix Cobblestone and two sisters called Clover Amaraly and Ellen Skylarkwho is Evelyn's RELATED sister and the other two have other mums and dads but they are dead so they were raisesd by Evelyn and Ellen's mother. One day, their mum goes to a pub and doesn't come back and Evelyn tries her best to look after the others but it's too much hard work.....

Mmmm, a sequel to Lola Rose and Hetty Feather. These are my own ideas:

I'm writing a story right now called "The Thriller of Horror" but I'm not sure if I want to publish it or not. About a 12 year old girl, Christie who wakes up one morning and finds out she's switched places with her Mum. Christie thinks that being Mum for a day is quite fun, just relaxing and watching TV, no school... But soon Christie's room gets haunted by ghosts and vampires, and then she finds out that she was born in a graveyard! Whatever could be worse!?

Some kids with gay parents, like Sophia said. That's a great idea.

i think there should be a book about 11 year old girl who gets orphaned and she lives in the country side in a big house so she tries to hide there for a while but then she meets someone who makes her change her mind and goes to a really nice foster family. her name would be Amber and would be really good at art

maybe, the main character could be lesbian/gay, but in secret. it could be set in the Victorian times!

i was thinking that some thing food related like a story about a girl in Asia who's family have very little food
so it would be sad but in he end they could got to Australia and live happy lives
for the last chapter it could be her as a 20 year old living in Australia and how her family is happy

by Lavender Breezy Microscope at 12:24 pm Tue 29 May 2018 | Likes: 1

Something crazy, adventure-full, dramatic, sad/depressing, funny-ness, and happiness all squished together in one book would be really awesome

It could be about ruby and garnet. like it could say at the beginning that they drifted apart but both got their dream jobs and one day they both fall in love with the sam man (or so they think) and they go through an intense journey but at the end they found out that the man was actually two very distant lookalike cousins and ruby and garnet fell for different ones. at the end they make-up and write a book about their life cuz their both famous or something. No hate plz x

The Gossip: Tips

These are to make The Gossip easier and suitable for you all to use. Messages containing the following might not necessarily be deleted but they might be edited to make them appropriate:

  • Use a SPOILER alert! If you are giving away plots about any of Jacqueline’s books so other users who may not have read the book will know you are giving away some of the story. This is what the SPOILER alert is for. Think ‘By saying this, am I going to SPOIL the enjoyment of the book for people who haven’t read it?’ To add a spoiler alert just type – in CAPS to make it more impactful – SPOILER ALERT! At the start of your message!
  • Try not to post repetitive topics, for example: before starting a new topic, check if someone else has already started a similar one, you could join their chat.
  • Avoid typing rows and rows of emoticons or single letters or characters like exclamation marks – messages packed with these only clog up the system and we’ll probably delete them so they don’t block other messages
  • Stay on topic of other posted threads. Make sure you read what others have written and you are responding to that conversation. If you want to start a new topic, think about what you want to talk about and make sure you title your topic clearly.
  • Watch your sense of humour, posts may be read by people from a variety of backgrounds and ages.
  • Talking about sensitive subjects: We think it’s great that you feel you can post your dilemmas and give advice to each other. However, we won’t be allowed to post problems of a very serious nature. If you feel like you’re in trouble and have no-one or no-where to turn, please contact Childline who will be able to help you: 0800 1111
  • And finally, please be patient! Because we have to check every message for all of the above, and because so many of you are using The Gossip, sometimes it can take a while for your message to appear. If you’ve respected the above rules and guidelines then your message WILL appear eventually

Despite the above Tips and our vigilance, if you strongly feel that any particular post should not be on the board then please do email us at jacky@jacquelinewilson.co.uk.
