Book of the Week, Garrison's Creed. And as the new Till the Fat Lady Slims book 3.0 goes on pre-sale, a chance to get the sold out QVC hardback!
2 February 2016

Big week in my writing world!

First - STOP PRESS - TTFLS AQUA I have half a dozen already-packaged up copies of the limited edition hardback of TTFLS 2.0 with aqua cover done just for QVC! Just half a dozen left out of the 3000 print run. This is quite hard to get now, so do let me know if you'd like me to send you one - am trying to raise funds for the current Tangle-portrait Justgiving page, to reach the £500. So I will take bids for them, girls! They were £10 inc p&p when on QVC. Email me This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Meanwhile, news of how to get the latest one - Till the Fat Lady Slims 3.0 has gone on pre order! click here -

The book launch party was fab! There's a way of seeing videos and pics, if you go to my Facebook page - click here. The Chiswick Bookshop was wonderful and very welcoming, warm and accommodating. David Crane the owner and his lovely daughter Emily, the manager gave everyone a really good night. And many books were bought. I was extremely tired at the end though, but so proud of myself. Special thanks as usual to lovely mate Sharon who was chief helper plus my family, friends and facebookers. Super day. Will be a while before I do it again though!! Hehe. 

Book of the Week - Garrison's Creed by Cristin Harber - get it here on Amazon.

Shaping up to be much better than the first one in the Titan series, this is set ten years later where the two star-crossed lovers encounter each other again - in an action packed adventure. The narration doesn't dip out quite so much with downward inflexions at the end of every sentence like book one had, either. So that's good. It's quite highly reviewed online so do give it a go if you like fiery characters and hot heroes!
