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 …

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 June …

It’s launch day – Gone To Ground has broken cover!

The preorders have been delivered, the paperback proof inspected, the book sample downloaded and checked, and I'm delighted (and somewhat relieved) to announce that Gone To Ground is officially launched! Gone To Ground is book 3 in the Maisie Frobisher Mysteries series, which I'd class as adventure mystery. Join Maisie in 1890s India for mystery, intrigue, and …

5 days to go – it’s nearly time for Maisie Frobisher book 3!

Even after twenty-something books, I still get excited about launching a new one. The book in question is Gone To Ground, and it's book 3 in the Maisie Frobisher Mysteries series. I enjoyed writing it tremendously, and hopefully readers will enjoy it too! The ebook will be out on April 28, but it's available to preorder …

Prepare to launch! Maisie Frobisher is Off the Map…

She's back! And this time, Maisie may or may not be riding an elephant... Maisie Frobisher has arrived in India - in Mumbai to be precise, or Bombay as it was in the 1890s - and she'll get quite a culture shock when she steps off the boat... I'm delighted to launch Maisie book 2 …

Prepare to launch! Maisie Frobisher is All At Sea…

Here comes Maisie! And typically, the paperback arrived fashionably late to dinner yesterday evening... All At Sea is the first in a new series, the Maisie Frobisher Mysteries, which I'd describe as adventure mystery. Maisie Frobisher popped up originally in the Caster & Fleet books, but you don't have to have read those first. Early reviews …

Announcing a new series: the Maisie Frobisher Mysteries!

Well, I did say I'd do another update on Maisie before the end of the year, and here it is! And behold, it's a series, the Maisie Frobisher Mysteries! Take a look at the covers... Regular readers may have noted that I've been mentioning a spinoff to the Caster & Fleet series for a little …

Words complete! NaNoWriMo continued…

And then we came to the end... Of the book, that is, not NaNoWriMo. As with book 1 in this series, the end rushed up at me. I'd left my protagonist Maisie Frobisher in rather a sticky situation the day before, and I knew I needed some careful plotting to get her out of it …

On the road again: adventures in NaNoWriMo

I've been meaning to write this post for at least a week now, but life and more particularly events and book launches have got in the way. But now here I am, and having got my words for the day done, I have a bit of space to talk about NaNoWriMo. Or NaNoDicto, as it's become …
