I’m now on Booksprout! Come and find me for an ARC of Halloween Sherlock

What does that mean, I hear you ask? Well, Booksprout is an Advanced Review Copy (ARC) managing service, and as I'm not very good at managing ARCs, I thought using a system to keep track of them would be a great idea. So if you like the idea of joining my ARC team and getting …

Happy self-publiversary to me!

I only noticed this about half an hour ago (it's latish afternoon here in the UK), but today is my 30-month or 2.5-year self-publiversary! Yes, two and a half years ago I unleashed The Secret Notebook of Sherlock Holmes on an unsuspecting world, and then, well, I just kept going. 30 months feels like a long time …

Pinch, punch, first book of the month! A Fete Worse Than Death is LIVE!

Here it is! The pre-orders clicked through at stupid o'clock this morning, which means that A Fete Worse Than Death is officially LIVE! I've made a trilogy!

Just in case the header image on here has done weird things to it, here is the book cover in full: …

Murder At The Playgroup: the digested reviews!

I'm terrible at remembering to share reviews of my books. Plus I get embarrassed. So I thought I'd try something new. Here is a word cloud of all the reviews Murder At The Playgroup has received so far!   The bigger the word, the more times it's been used. And as the book's currently at 4.4 out …

An approaching bookiversary

I did have a vague feeling that something was coming up! It's very nearly a year since the launch of The Secret Notebook of Sherlock Holmes, and Facebook very helpfully put a memory in front of me a couple of days ago...the moment when I cleared my throat and announced that I had a book coming …

It’s that new year post again

2016 was quite a year. Stranger than fiction in many ways - I feel for dystopian fiction authors and satirists, since they must be wondering where they can go next. However, this particular blog post (the third of its kind, I'm surprised to see) is a review of my writing and other progress in 2016, and …

Firewords, Thursday and Mirrors, oh my!

Firewords Quarterly I'm full of a cold and battling with the paperback edition of A Jar Of Thursday, but I've been cheered today by the arrival of some very fine book post courtesy of Firewords. This is issue 7, Dark/Light, and yes, it …

A Thursday update: ARCs available!

What a relief! Yesterday I got the last comments from my wonderful proofreader, made the changes, and uploaded the final version (I hope) of A Jar of Thursday to Amazon. I'm a natural fretter, so while I knew I had time to make changes, I still had the what ifs in the back of my mind. What …
