NaNoWriMo: remembering the first time!

Do you NaNo? I haven't this year, but I can still remember the first time. That makes it sound as if it was decades ago. It was actually in 2015 - but that seems like a VERY long time ago now! I've written so much since then... If you're reading this and saying 'Hang on, …

Swallowed a dictionary

This week I’ve been doing the final – I hope – proof on my middle-grade novel, Rich Girl, Poor Girl. At the same time, I’ve been writing down 'tricky words' to put in a glossary at the back of the book. That is, words I’m not sure a 9 to 11 year old would necessarily …

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 …

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 …
