My book in Harrods bookstore with 'signed by Author' sticker - a TiFFT! Plus AudioBook of the Week - the Martian
23 December 2015

my book on Harrods shelf with 'signed by author' sticker - a TiFFT! my book on Harrods shelf with 'signed by author' sticker - a TiFFT!

Big week - one of the best! Went to afternoon tea at Harrods, no less, and Choc Lit my publisher had made sure that Take a Chance on Me - my first paperback with them - had been delivered all crisp and shiny, into the Harrods bookshop on the second floor. Squeeee! And Keisha the manageress got me to sign them and put some 'signed by author' stickers on the front! I was well happy!

- debs book in harrods

I'm just now waiting with baited breath to see if it stays in the chart next week - even if it goes down somewhat it's still great to be featured. Very lucky Debbie. More info aout how to buy is on Choc Lit's website here, or on Amazon here.

AudioBook of the Week - The Martian

Now this is an interesting one. Mainly because this survival on alien planet book is all about calculations and engineering solutions to staying alive and being rescued and therefore would probably have benefited from seeing the words rather than hearing them. BUT nevertheless I did enjoy the audiobook and do want to see the film now. I will though, only give it 7 out of ten cos for the above reasons the audiobook was heavy going.  More here.


Christmas Book of the Week - Christmas at Coorah Creek by Janet Gover

Fellow Choc Lit author provides our final Book of the Week with a festive feel. a Top 500 Reviewer says  - 'Christmas in the Outback, full of drama and adventure - utterly gripping... There is a lot of action and drama is this book, as you would expect from Katie being an outback nurse, but she does have a lot of doubts as to whether its really the best place she should have escaped to. She also is doubting just how Christmas would be celebrated, since there is no chance of a white Christmas in the outback.

I won't tell you just how Christmas day is celebrated, but it does summon up the key themes of Christmas, in a really good way, and there is a, I hate to say Christmas miracle, but lets go for something unlikely happening,."

Do give it a go - as an antidote to the wet windy weather we've been having lately in the UK!

Have a lovely week.
