Book of the Week - 'Off the Rails' Period Saga from Beryl Kingston. And TTFLS freebie success!
14 August 2015

number one in diet and Weight Loss Free kindle chart! number one in diet and Weight Loss Free kindle chart!

This week my book of the week is a smashing book i've been listening to on audible, by a lovely lady called Beryl Kingston. I met Beryl out in France inJune and she's a very prolific author who writes about "the old days up north!"

"Off the rails" is a super story of rags to riches and love and vengeance. I am really enjoying the atmospheric settings, the use of the vernacular, and the emotions she evokes in her story about a lad who was cast out by his family and went on to make it good, and the woman he left behind.

You can get it from Amazon, it's not a new one but if you like it she has written so many, it would be good to get into her library.


Till the fat lady slims

What a fabulous success this was when I did a freebie of the e-book over the weekend. It stayed at number one in the kindle chart in the UK for diets and weight loss,for most of the weekend, and around 1500 were downloaded. I seriously hope it helps a lot of people. I have just decided to donate all my proceeds from my QVCversion which I did on air on QVC UK in January, which sold out completely. (Itwas a hardback with extra content.) to my charity, medical detection dogs. Theyhave been in the news a lot lately, have you seen it? Anyway here is the link if you want to read some of the reviews of TTFLS 2.0. And here is one lady's comment now she has lost a lot of weight and just recently started being stricter with her principles of freedom eating, as explained in my book.


Have a lovely week

Best wishes
