Loads of Fantastic Prizes for Fab New Book Launch

On Tuesday I was guest blogging for Pauline Wiles, ahead of the launch of her brilliant new book, Secrets in the Sky. Well, the book is now live, and if you pop over to her blog here, you can win some amazing prizes in her Rafflecopter giveaway. Fancy a $25 Amazon gift voucher, an owl bookend and paperweight or a set of British food goodies? What about a bundle of books, including my very own Cupid’s Way? Help Pauline celebrate her launch today and you could be a lucky winner.


But don’t go just yet – I want to tell you why I’m supporting Pauline and why I love the book so much. Last year, Pauline asked me if I would be one of the beta readers for her second novel. Now, I don’t often beta read, mainly because of time constraints, and also because I am such a fussy reader I’m not sure my feedback will always be welcome! ;) However, I remembered how much I enjoyed Pauline’s debut novel, so I gladly said yes. I wasn’t sorry I did. This is a romance that takes you way beyond the normal angst – it has a LOT more to the story than your average girl meets boy. Plus, I really loved the cabin crew references because it took me back to my own days working for EasyJet. Pauline works really hard, is super-supportive to her fellow authors, and she deserves to get this book into as many hands as possible. So please download and share with your friends, and don’t forget to leave her a review if you enjoy it.

Good luck, Pauline!

Hey, I’m A Guest On Pauline Wiles’ Lovely Blog!

My friend, Pauline Wiles, is launching her second novel on Thursday – Secrets in the Sky – and in the run up to the launch, Pauline is turning her blog over to a few of her writing friends. My guest post is up today, and you can read it by clicking here.

I was lucky enough to be one of the beta readers for Secrets in the Sky, and I can tell you now this is a brilliant book. Pauline is a fantastic writer, very talented, and I really enjoyed her first novel too. In fact, her first novel Saving Saffron Sweeting is currently on special offer for only 99p!


I’ll be back on Thursday with more news about Secrets in the Sky and all the links you need to download and share :)

Valentine’s Day Specials!

Happy Valentine’s Day to all my lovely fellow bloggers and blog readers :) What are you up to today? Do you celebrate V day with roses and a candlelit dinner for two, or do you prefer to ignore it and pretend it doesn’t exist?

I’m a bit of a romantic – you never would have guessed, right? – so I’m firmly in the first camp. Although, the candlelit dinner will probably just be a Chinese takeaway in front of the fire while watching TV, and I do think roses are a waste of money, not to mention a rip off …

Maybe not so much of a romantic after all ;)

Still, I do have a couple of special promotions to celebrate the fact that romance is in the air – the first of which is happening in our lovely local book shop, aptly named ‘BookShrop’ (it’s a book shop and it’s in Shropshire). Check out the window dressing …

You can’t get a more perfect title for Valentine’s Day than Cupid’s Way, right? This is a feel-good romantic comedy, with fantastic reviews on Amazon, and for anyone who can’t get down to BookShrop to grab a special paperback edition, the Kindle version will also be on special offer from Sunday on a Countdown Promotion – click the image to go to the Kindle store …


Cupid’s Way will be on promotion at 99p/99c for a week, so please share and spread the word. And enjoy Valentine’s Day, however you like to spend it :)

Can’t Live Without in Audiobook Format – Finally!

Today I’m really excited to announce that my debut novel, Can’t Live Without, is finally available as an audiobook on both Amazon and Audible. Narrator/producer Stevie Zimmerman has done the most amazing job with this book, really bringing Stella to life along with all her trials and tribulations.

I was worried that the narration wouldn’t capture the humour that comes across in Stella’s rather unique way of looking at the world, but I needn’t have worried – listening to the files as Stevie uploaded them to ACX was an absolute joy. I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again – there is nothing quite like having your book read by a professional narrator. It is a very emotional experience. And it made me fall in love with Can’t Live Without all over again.

I’m so excited I’m going to be running a special giveaway soon, so watch out for news of how you can win one of 10 free copies of the audiobook! That’s a free personal copy worth £13.29. And if you want to sign up to Audible, they have an offer at the moment for new listeners who only have to pay £3.99 a month for the first 3 months. Why not make Can’t Live Without your first Audible download? That would be awesome :)

I’ll leave you with a clip to listen to, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
