Just popping in to share a very kind and completely unexpected review of the Secret Notebook in the Croydon Citizen newspaper, courtesy of the lovely folks at BookAngel!

Cover reveal: Coming soon…Bitesize!

Well, I did say I was finalising another book cover...and here it is! Say hello to Bitesize! Bitesize is a collection of flash fiction: no stories over 500 words have been allowed in (and neither has Sherlock Holmes!). Something which stuck with me from Chris Beckett's introduction to FlashDogs: Volume 2 was his comparison of a short story …
