Out of the blue: a new Halloween tale

I’m working on a new and unexpected story. I’m sure there are authors who schedule what they’re going to write when and actually stick to it, but I don't seem to be one of them. You see, I went on a Heritage Open Day earlier this month. Well, I went on a few, but this …

Here we are again: new year goals…

This year seems to have gone both quickly and slowly. Somehow, the whole family has managed to stay Covid-free (I ought to cross my fingers but it's quite hard to type at the same time). The kids are back in school, I'm back tutoring (in just one school this time), but my husband is still …

#EscapeWithABook Week 7: Halloween Sherlock

It's Week 7 of #EscapeWithABook, in which I run a discount on a different ebook every week. Each book is 99p/99c (UK/US only, because of how Amazon run their discount system). In addition, almost all my books are in Kindle Unlimited, so if you are a subscriber, you can read over 20 of my books that way. …

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, …

Double launch day – a cabinet and a trio!

Today is launch day for not one but TWO books! OK, I'm cheating slightly because one is a box set/omnibus edition, but hey. Here are the books in question! Hopefully you can tell from the covers that they're kind of related. 😉 Both are from my most traditional and probably darkest Sherlock Holmes series, Halloween Sherlock. …

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 …
