With 54 days until the launch of my next book, the publicity machine is well underway. The novel - once my character Jo leaves London - is set on a beach in south east Cornwall, so we've been focusing on local publications because local people will be very familiar with the beach (if I've done my job well!)

Small Forgotten Moments will launch on 31 August, and pre-orders are available from Amazon, Kobo, and more.
Pre-orders are such an important part of the publishing/publicity cycle, so I'm very excited to share these links where you can grab yourself a copy, forget about it for a couple of months, and then have it pop onto your e-reader or drop through your letterbox!
It's technically a present to your future self!
Here they are!
I'm not really sure what to say, but almost immediately I pulled That Sadie Thing from general sale in December, I had a change of heart. I thought it would go away, but it hasn't.
You see, I love old books. I'm firmly old-fashioned in the belief that my work will outlive me. Not to the extent, obviously, of Austen or the Brontes, but a small piece of me will carry on. All I can say is that December was a particularly emotional time for me, and now - with distance - I love these stories too much to abandon them.
So here it is, with a brand new cover, and with the three bonus stories which were originally only included in the paperback version (which remains out-of-print for the time being - aside from the copies which live under my desk!)
Re-publishing it has also meant I can tidy up some of the grammatical issues, and my inclination to spell 'smooth' incorrectly through-out. And for the first time, That Sadie Thing will be available on the majority of ebook platforms from 31 March.

Recently, I created a new group on Facebook aimed at introducing the readers I know with the writers I know.
Most of the writers I know are indie and small press authors. Many of the readers I know don't realise what a wealth of wonderful talent is out there, if they could just find it. So I thought it would be cool to create a group where the two could meet.
It's an idea I've had for a long time, but executed on the spur of the moment, when I had lots of other things I should have been doing, so the group will evolve - I hope - over time.
My aim is to bring together people who are passionate about books, and where readers can discover new authors.
Pop along, and see what's going on!
