I’ve had a busy few weeks, including several trips to London. One for the Romantic Novelists’ Association’s Winter Party and Industry Awards, another for my publisher’s Christmas party at The Ivy and one earlier this week to meet with my agent and discuss plans for next year. So, much as I enjoy going to capital, I think I’m now all Londoned out!
It was publication day for The Birthday Girl in Germany (Penguin Verlag) at the beginning of the month. They’ve gone for the same cover but just given the colours a bit of a tweak.
Don’t forget you can sign up to my newsletter here From this you’ll get a chance to find out what’s happening in my writing world, sneak previews, early news, exclusive content, the chance to win prizes, book recommendations and more. In the new year I’ll hopefully be able to share with you some book news of my next book and what I plan to do in the coming year.
I’ve read some fabulous books this year, some of which I’ve given a shout out to in my newsletter. To be honest, I’m a slow reader so I’ve only actually read 3 or 4 books either paperback or ebook and the rest have been audio books. I can get through one of them in a matter of days as I listen to them when I’m doing other things, like driving, preparing dinner, dog walking or before I go to sleep. In fact, I love audio so much, I’ve got through over 40 books that way since the beginning of the year.
Looking ahead into 2020, if you’re in the Portsmouth area on Friday 5th March and fancy joining me and several other authors for a chat about romance and whether it’s all ‘fluff and kittens’ (hint: two mystery and suspense writers are on the panel, so probably not), we’d love to see you there. Here’s the link Portsmouth Book Fest
I’ve just finished decorating my tree at home and although I’ll be working right up to Christmas, I wanted to take the opportunity to round off the year with a MASSIVE thank you to all my readers who have been as supportive as ever with the publications of Schoolgirl Missing and The Dead Wife this year – I really appreciate all your tweets, shares, comments, reviews and messages, it’s what keeps me writing.
