It's a family business, and everything is done by hand - from filling the moulds for the bars to sprinkling on the different toppings. It's fascinating to watch the small number of employees - only three when I was there - knowing how far and wide their product is sold.
Photos: my Bakewell Tart Brownie and huge vats of chocolate. I could have watched that chocolate swirling around all day!
After a flurry of excitement over the past couple of days, I'm finally settled - and coherent - enough to share my latest news...
My novel, Grace and Serenity, is going to be published in July 2020 by Vine Leaves Press!
This is me signing the actual contract!! I look a lot more calm and composed than I felt.
Vine Leaves published my short story collection, You. I. Us., and I'm delighted to be working with them again - and especially to acquire another of Jessica Bell's amazing covers.
If you want to keep updated on the book's progress, use the box at the top right of this page to sign up for my newsletter - I'll be sharing snippets from the book, offering early review copies, and having a celebratory giveaway in the near future (chocolate, it'll be chocolate 😋) The next newsletter will be out on the 12th August.
