Unexpected book offer! The Sherlock & Jack ebook boxset is just 99p/99c (US/UK)

I’ll keep this brief, as it’s completely unexpected! The only reason I know about this offer is that a reader told me about it (um, thanks, publishers) The 3-ebook boxset of The Sherlock & Jack Chronicles is currently just 99p/99c for today and the next few days. NB this is in the UK and US only, as it’s a Kindle Countdown Deal and that’s whereContinue reading “Unexpected book offer!

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 theContinue reading “Omnibus alert!

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…”

Re-covering a book series

‘You can’t judge a book by its cover’ is a saying you’ve probably heard many times, but I firmly believe that most people do – me included! While I was writing A Spider’s Web, book three in my Mrs Hudson and Sherlock Holmes series, I made a decision to get new covers for the series.Continue reading “Re-covering a book series”

On unreliable narrators and alternative worlds

We finally got round to watching Cruella last weekend. We had thought of seeing the film when it first came out and paying for priority access, but I had suggested that we wait, since I wasn’t sure whether we’d like it. As it turns out, we really enjoyed it. When I looked on Wikipanion later,Continue reading “On unreliable narrators and alternative worlds”

It’s Week 7 of #EscapeWithABook, in which I run a discount on a different ebook every week.

#EscapeWithABook Week 1: A House of Mirrors

Hello there, and I hope you’re well. Things are odd, and no mistake. I hope you’re all keeping well, and managing in this strange new world of ours. At the moment, I’m doing my best to keep busy, to stop myself from constant news-checking and clicking on unhelpful stuff, and I imagine many of you areContinue reading “#EscapeWithABook Week 1: A House of Mirrors”

Free book, cheap book, and two book fairs to explore!

It’s like buses – you think you’ve scheduled various things with decent gaps between them, and only later do you realise that actually they’re all coming along together. Or maybe that’s just me. Anyway, here are some offers I have going on today and for the next few days: One of my Halloween Sherlock novelettes, Sherlock HolmesContinue reading “Free book, cheap book, and two book fairs to explore!”

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,Continue reading “Watch out, it’s The Adventure of the Scarlet Rosebud!”
