It’s out! A paperback for gifting – big book with all three Hawaiian romantic comedies (with spicy rather than steamy scenes!)
4 December 2014

Hawaiian Trilogy PG paperback Hawaiian Trilogy PG paperback

It’s beginning to look a lot like ‘Gift-mas’ – three more shopping weekends and plenty of time to order yourself some pressies online right? How about get a couple of people sorted out this week with an exciting romance series in paperback? A big one!!? Order as many copies as you feel like, of Hawaiian Trilogy – my three novels all under one cover for the first time – and Hawaiian Retreat also making its debut in paperback and in PG.

For those who don’t know, after I published my first novel I had quite a demand last summer for a less erotic version of my books, which some described as ‘fifty shades of HOT but with a story and a plot!’ So the ‘PG’ (parental guidance) versions were uploaded, perfect for presents. And now at last there’s not only the final part in the series in PG but it’s inside a three part super-volume, which comes in at just over 600 pages! It’ll make a substantial gift for someone special who you know likes funny romances with a substantial plot. Around £12 (I say ‘around’ since Amazon alter paperback pricing from day to day.)

Here are some of the reviews from Amazon –


Debbie flint has done it again! This book takes you on a emotional as well as geographical journey in every sense. Stretching your imagination whilst pulling at your heart strings and making you cry with laughter.”

Hawaiian Escape – the prequel to Hawaiian Affair – we meet Sadie and her kooky older sister Helen and their funny family, and follow the fortunes of both sisters as they travel to Tuscany for a nail biting finale in a competition that may change Sadie’s life forever. (Average score of 4.5* )



“... This book takes you on a emotional as well as geographical journey in every sense. Stretching your imagination whilst pulling at your heart strings and making you cry with laughter.”

Hawaiian Affair – awarded the ‘BRAG medallion’ for excellence in Self-publishing. (Over 110 x 5* reviews on Amazon for steamy version and average 4.8* over 18 reviews on PG) – Sadie’s story – what happens when feisty independent singleton Sadie meets a potential investor, Mac, who never mixes business with pleasure – until he meets curvy Sadie.


This is the 3rd book in the Hawaiian series. The plots and sub plots keep you guessing and I wanted to know what happened.
So what does happen to Helen and who will she choose? More to come from these characters I think.
A great holiday read.”

Hawaiian Retreat – Helen’s story – international columnist Helen searches the world for original ‘Try it For the First Time Club’ fodder, from Tuscany to Tibet to Thailand to Hawaii, all the while being tracked by a mystery man who could bring back ghosts of the past, or plunge her into an alternative future. (average 4.8* out of 19 on steamy. This is the first appearance of the PG version!)

Hawaiian Trilogy – is all three books in one PAPERBACK release.

Book of the Week - Broken Homes - the 4th PC Peter Grant mystery from Ben Aaronovitch. Yes he’s doing it again – fabulous ex-writer of Blake’s Seven, Ben and his superb narrator Kobna Holdbrook Smith, are wowing me with this latest title – read more about it here. And start with Rivers of London - if you like mysteries with a kick and a superntural bent! I'm giving this one another good 8 out of ten. go here for more.

Other News –

-          Waterstones’ Book of the Year - The Miniaturist what a fab debut this book was in the summer – made an impact and has won this impressive accolade, which is chosen by booksellers instead of readers. Set in 18th century Amsterdam, Jessie Burton’s debut novel is an atmospheric ‘literary thriller’ – for me, I’d read the ‘free look inside’ sample on Amazon before buying, but if you like things literary and a big more high brow then this may be for you. More here.

-          Using a Book tweeting service – Has anyone used one? What do you think? With a reach of 435,000 followers on Twitter, (obviously much less than that actually see it,) they offer a scale of options eg $51 dollars for three days of tweets, 180 retweets offered in that time. Go here for more, but bear in mind there are tons of others like this. It may however be a good way to get some attention in the US. They don’t take erotica or political titles.
