Win 1 of 5 signed copies of Starfell: Willow Moss and the Lost Day

Publication day promotion! Today sees the launch of Starfell - a spellbinding new middle-grade fantasy series that the publishers are hoping will be a must-read this summer. Meet Willow Moss, a young misfit witch who holds the fate of the magical world of Starfell in her rather unremarkable hands . . . 

‘A spellbinding début set in an irresistible magical world.’ - Fiona Noble, The Bookseller

Starfell is the perfect read for 8 – 12-year olds and fans of Cressida Cowell, packaged in a covetable hardback. 

Willow Moss, the youngest and least powerful sister in a family of witches, has a magical ability for finding lost things – like keys, or socks, or wooden teeth. Her magic might be useful, but it’s not exactly exciting . . . Until, that is, the most powerful witch in the whole of Starfell turns up at her door needing Willow’s help.

A whole day – last Tuesday to be precise – has gone missing. And the repercussions could be devastating. Can Willow find the day to save the day?

“Writing Starfell has been a real labour of love over the past seven years and joining the incredible HarperCollins list is a dream come true. I was bowled over by the team’s passion, vision, and warmth, and I’m so excited to start our journey together and to share this and future stories with readers.” - Dominique Valente 


Born in South Africa, Dominique Valente now lives in Felixstowe, Suffolk with her husband and their English Bulldog, Fudge. She writes bestselling women’s fiction under her pseudonym, Lily Graham, and is a former journalist for publications like Business Day and Woman & Home.
