Ambushed by a spam fritter!

So there I was, editing away at the children's book I've drafted, and starting to think about what to write next.  The obvious contender is Maisie Frobisher book 5, and it would make sense to plot books 5 and 6 together and then crack on. Wouldn't it?  But fate had other ideas... I'd been idly …

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 …

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 …

A longer journey: embarking on a bigger book

Today’s blog is slightly different from the norm, as I'm embarking on something slightly bigger. I’m writing a bigger book. This probably doesn’t sound that big a deal, but to me it feels like one! So I thought I’d write about it, just in case anyone else: feels the same way is thinking about writing …

Third time lucky: Double Booked launches today!

It's taken me a little bit longer this time, but Book 3 of the Magical Bookshop series, Double Booked, is finally here! I had hoped to have this book ready to go at the end of October, but as sometimes happens, life got in the way. In book 3 Jemma finally has a bookshop of her own …

Prepare to launch: Brought to Book!

Book 2 of the Magical Bookshop series is here - prepare to be Brought to Book! And so far, my early reviewers have really enjoyed it! This time I've advanced a bit further down the path which the first book, Every Trick in the Book, paused at, and a few more things about the bookshop are …

The Magical Bookshop is open!

Yes, I am massively over-excited, because it's launch day for Every Trick In The Book! I had such fun writing this book, and when I sent it to my beta readers they gobbled it up. My ARC readers have been absolutely brilliant, too, and the book already has some reviews on Goodreads. Read the early …

Ambushed by a book!

You know when something's in the background and then all of a sudden it's RIGHT THERE? That's kind of how it's been with my latest book. Once I'd finished the draft of Pippa Parker book 6, Past Tense, I was in a bit of a quandary. There were lots of books I could write, but …

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 …
