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. …

The Case of the Four Fingers – out now!

Yes, it's a surprise new book! I wrote a blog a short while ago about the story that came out of nowhere - Out of the blue: a new Halloween tale - and here it is! The Case of the Four Fingers is a paranormal mystery novella, just right for this time of year. It's available …

Omnibus alert! Mrs Hudson & Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Series launches today

I do like a box set... As the Mrs Hudson & Sherlock Holmes series is now complete (I'm not saying there won't be spinoffs, mind), I decided it made sense to offer a box set. For Kindle Unlimited readers, the whole series takes up one slot instead of 3, and for ebook buyers, it's the …

Fully Booked is out today

It’s a funny time to launch a book, that’s for sure. Even last week, I didn’t know that world events were going to escalate to such a degree. But my book was locked into Amazon by then, so here we are! Given everything else going on right now, obviously I haven’t done much promotion, but …

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 …

It’s my publiversary! 10 thoughts on 5 years of self-publishing

Time flies when you're having fun! I only realised this morning that today is the fifth anniversary of the date I published my first book, The Secret Notebook of Sherlock Holmes. I've done publiversary posts before, which you can find by searching for 'publiversary', but I felt that I probably ought to mark a half-decade …

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'm …

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 and …

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 an …
