2022 and all that: a review of my writing and publishing year

2022 has been quite a year - I think we can all agree on that. I've spent a fair portion of it with my jaw on the floor at what the government have got up to. However, that's not what I'm here for. On to the review! It's been an odd year, writing and publishing-wise. …

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 where …

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 …

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. …

#EscapeWithABook Week 7: Halloween Sherlock

It's Week 7 of #EscapeWithABook, in which I run a discount on a different ebook every week. Each book is 99p/99c (UK/US only, because of how Amazon run their discount system). In addition, almost all my books are in Kindle Unlimited, so if you are a subscriber, you can read over 20 of my books that way. …

#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 are …

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 Holmes …

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, …
