2022 and all that: a review of my writing and publishing year

2022 has been quite a year – I think we can all agree on that. I’ve spent a fair portion of it with my jaw on the floor at what the government have got up to. However, that’s not what I’m here for. On to the review! It’s been an odd year, writing and publishing-wise.Continue reading “2022 and all that: a review of my writing and publishing year”

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 stillContinue reading “Here we are again: new year goals…”

It’s that time again: new year goals…

Well, 2020 has been interesting, to say the least. What’s that saying about ‘may you live in interesting times’?  I reread last year’s ‘life goals’ post, and either I was unusually prescient, or I may be partly responsible for the mess that has been 2020. If so, I apologise. That said, I’m conscious that I’mContinue reading “It’s that time again: new year goals…”

It’s (nearly) Kindlemas!

For the last few years I’ve put together some ebook offers to run over the Christmas and New Year period. After all, once you’ve bought and wrapped all the presents, done all the prep and cooked the holiday dinner, you deserve to put your feet up and treat yourself with a book or two! SoContinue reading “It’s (nearly) Kindlemas!”

3…2…1: Past Tense is launched!

It’s launch day! If you like, you can imagine that I’m writing this with virtual bunting strung above my head, and drinking a glass of virtual champagne (although it’s a bit early for that sort of thing). Anyway, I’m very pleased to announce that Pippa Parker book 6, Past Tense, is now available in ebook andContinue reading “3…2…1: Past Tense is launched!”

The best of both worlds: Past Tense launches on 30 June!

I seem to have been busier than usual lately. I’m not sure if this is because I have been, or if it just seems that way. But anyhow, I haven’t quite got round to a proper marketing effort for Pippa Parker book 6, Past Tense, which launches next Tuesday, 30 June. Past Tense was anContinue reading “The best of both worlds: Past Tense launches on 30 June!”

#EscapeWithABook: Pippa Parker 1-3 Box Set

Back to the discounts! I’ve completely forgotten which week it is of #EscapeWithABook, in which I run a discount on a different ebook every week. This week it’s the turn of Pippa Parker Cozy Mysteries Box Set, which includes the first three Pippa Parker mysteries: Murder At The Playgroup, Murder In The Choir and A FeteContinue reading “#EscapeWithABook: Pippa Parker 1-3 Box Set”

A new book – and a competition too!

I took a day off between book edits this week, and spent it sorting out the book cover and blurb for Pippa Parker book 6. I’m not sure this qualifies as a day off in the normal sense of the word, but hey. Anyway, here it is! Announcing Pippa Parker book 6, Past Tense, launching JuneContinue reading “A new book – and a competition too!”
