Regular blog readers will be familiar with ace novelist Anne Allen, author of the much-loved Guernsey novels, the fifth of which is out tomorrow.
If you haven’t discovered Anne’s books yet you’re in for a treat – and isn’t it awesome when you find a new author with a whole back-catalogue of books to catch up with? I just love it when that happens. The timing is perfect, as the first three books in the series are on offer for 99p/99c each from 12th-19th August.
What’s even more exciting is that Anne is giving away a paperback copy of her new book, Echoes of Time, to one lucky winner from my blog! All you have to do is share this post, on Facebook or Twitter, and leave a comment. (Paperback copy to UK entries, Kindle copy to rest of world.) The lucky winner will be picked at random in two week’s time.
Meanwhile, let’s find out more about the new book:
Betrayal, injustice and revenge echo down the years…
1940. Olive marries farmer Bill Falla. The Germans occupy Guernsey.All too soon Olive realises she’s made a mistake. Her life changes when she meets Wolfgang, a German officer- but there’s a price to pay. . .
Natalie Ogier returns to Guernsey to escape an abusive relationship – only to be plagued by odd happenings in her beautiful cottage on the site of a derelict and secluded farm. Disturbing dreams, disembodied voices and uncanny visions from the past. She becomes increasingly ill at ease as someone else’s past catches up with her own…
Her only immediate neighbour, Stuart, is the grandson of the original owners, Bill and Olive. Thrown together in a bid to find out what really happened to Olive, can they each survive the repercussions of the past and move on?
Echoes of Time is out tomorrow, but is available for pre-order right now by clicking here. Anne’s off on a tour of Guernsey to promote the new novel, and she’s promised to come back and tell us all about it soon, with photos! Good luck, Anne.

Hi Jo, thanks so much for telling your readers about my latest offering, Echoes of Time. I haven’t written a dual-time story before and thoroughly enjoyed writing this one. And I’d like to add that all the books are standalone stories, but they share characters who keep popping up – like a big family! ☺

I spent many of my childhood holidays in Guernsey and have always been interested in its history so this would be my ideal read!
