Ever considered joining or organising a multi-author boxset? #Marketing #Freebooks

I will admit I probably wouldn’t consider arranging one of these myself just yet, but when a prolific and successful author I follow offered the opportunity to five other authors to apply to join her in a boxset venture, I put THE PRINCE’S MAN forward right away. The lady in question, Australian author Patty Jansen, […]

#BookReview – ANITA BLAKE VAMPIRE HUNTER #2 – THE LAUGHING CORPSE by Laurell K Hamilton #FantasyHorror #zombies

I am still reading through the omnibus edition of the first 3 books in the Anita Blake Vampire Hunter series – there are at least 24 books to date – and loving it. Horror is not my usual genre, but these are so well written with Anita’s humanity and principles clearly to the forefront despite […]

UK or US English – does it bother you either way?

I am a UK author, and I write my books in English – I don’t like to qualify that by calling it ‘UK English’ because in my books that’s a redundancy. I hope that doesn’t offend my many US friends. My reason for raising this, is that I often see discussions between UK authors about […]

#BookReview EPICENTRE by Chris Andrews #mermaids #fantasy

I hesitated about reviewing this book, but decided that even a 3 star review can be useful to an author – I felt I had enough positive to say to balance the negative to make it worth it, so here it is. Epicentre by Chris Andrews My rating: 3 of 5 stars Grace is a […]

Apparently my mind is ‘iridescent’… #fantasy

One of my equestrian clients quizzed me the other day about my books. She’s Scottish, so my Caledonian Sprite series intrigued her, despite the fact she hadn’t read a fiction novel in 30 years! Here is what she said: ‘…the big news is I read a book – fiction – not my usual thing at […]

Sharing a little of my #WIP #amwriting

During the first lockdown, much of my time was taken up with outdoor activities, such as gardening, dog walking, and riding my horse. There wasn’t much time left over for writing and, like it was for so many others, creativity didn’t flow well during that period. This time around though, what with being more severely […]

#BookBub Featured Deal – interim report

My BookBub Featured Deal went live across the world yesterday. It’s always a little tricky following the numbers really closely, courtesy of the time differences. Here in the UK things got going a little earlier than in the US, and a few sales trickled in, one or two at a time. Once the US woke […]

Sharing a new #BookReview of THE PRINCE’S MAN #EpicFantasy

All the books in my Five Kingdoms series have been selling with gratifying regularity, but it’s always a thrill to discover a new review from a delighted reader, so when I found this, I had to share it.

I’m really busy with work just now, catching up on what could not be done during lockdown, but I’m also continuing to read (and write), so here is my latest book review: WISP by Adele Marie Park Blurb: Edra; a world where magic flourishes and where dark secrets are concealed by those who rule.
