10 thoughts on being an independent author

As it's Indie Author Week this week, and I've now been self-publishing for just over 6 years, here are some thoughts on what it's like to be an independent author. Before I start, two things: What follows is drawn from my own experience - I'm not saying it will be the same for everyone who …

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 …

Come aboard! All At Sea is 99c/99p today!

I was astonished to see that I haven't promoted my Victorian adventure mystery All At Sea for a while - how remiss of me! With that in mind, and also because I'm planning to write a new Maisie Frobisher book this year - newsflash! - I decided to do a discount run. So from today …

A book launch for Christmas: Black Books

Well, talk about a rush! Normally I'm quite organised when I'm bringing out a new book, and I have a preorder and do a bit of marketing every few days or so until launch. Not this one - because I wasn't sure I'd get it out before Christmas at all! May I introduce to you …

It’s launch day: By The Book!

Another instalment in the Magical Bookshop series is out today! By The Book, book 4, is now available to buy in ebook and paperback on Amazon, and also available to read in Kindle Unlimited. I enjoyed writing this book very much. Not just because I always enjoy writing and this series is comparatively light, but also because this …

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! So …
