I’d like to wish you all a Merry Christmas!
With my debut novel, The Girl on the Beach, out on 24 January 2017, my mind is now turning to the new world (to me in any case) of book marketing. If you have any gems of ideas for this, or pearls of wisdom to share, please pop them in the comments below.
Each first for my book is exciting. After the euphoria of seeing my name on my gorgeous book cover, I found myself jumping up and down when I saw The Girl on the Beach on the new releases banner on the Choc Lit website. I guess this didn’t feel real, felt that maybe it had all been a dream, until I actually saw it. Again at the weekend, my excitement mounted when I realised there was a sample of the book on the iBooks website and was able to show my family my dedication to them. It’s all feeling very exciting and very scary all at the same time.
I shall be appearing on a few blogs as a guest author over the coming months. Kicking off my appearances with a visit to Jo Lambert’s blog tomorrow (Tuesday 20 December) and the Romantic Novelists’ Association blog on 11 January 2017. If you would like me to be a guest on your blog, please let me know.
As we seemingly hurtle towards Christmas Day, I hope that you have a happy and peaceful holiday. I would also like to take a moment to remember those less fortunate and those in war-torn areas at this time of year. Merry Christmas!
