#EscapeWithABook Week 8: School’s Out

It's Week 8 of #EscapeWithABook, and this week's a bit different because I have a FREEBIE for you! School's Out is a longish short story which I wrote as a bit of a warm-up for Pippa Parker book 6. It's a very gentle, cosy mystery which features a few of the characters you may have …

Watch out, it’s The Adventure of the Scarlet Rosebud!

Halloween Purrlock! I'm delighted to present this year's dose of Halloween spookiness, The Adventure of the Scarlet Rosebud! It isn't part of the Halloween Sherlock novelette series, since this one isn't exclusive and therefore isn't in Kindle Unlimited, but it's very much the same kind of book. I've priced Scarlet Rosebud at 99c/99p/€0,99 for ebook and $3.99/£2.99 for paperback, …

I’m now on Booksprout! Come and find me for an ARC of Halloween Sherlock

What does that mean, I hear you ask? Well, Booksprout is an Advanced Review Copy (ARC) managing service, and as I'm not very good at managing ARCs, I thought using a system to keep track of them would be a great idea. So if you like the idea of joining my ARC team and getting …
