Update

I thought it was useful, for me as well as you, to post a short update blog this week.

My debut romantic suspense novel The Girl on the Beach was published by Choc Lit on 24 January 2017. It has zig-zagged around the charts and I still don’t understand the algorithms that lead to its ranking on any one day. I do know that reviews make a big difference, so if you’ve read The Girl on the Beach and liked it, please post a review for me on the site where you bought it. A one liner will do nicely.

On Amazon.co.uk, I now have 61 reviews, mainly 4 and 5 stars, of which I am immensely proud. Thank you, readers. I got to 106 in the romantic suspense chart at one point and would love to get higher.

On Kobo, the highest I reached was 2 in the romantic suspense chart and I stayed there for a couple of weeks. Could do with a few more reviews over there if possible.

My book is also available on Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble, Apple iBooks and Google Play.

Next week, I will be in London, along with the other ten contenders for the Romantic Novelists’ Association Joan Hessayon Award – see my blog post about this here. Wish me luck. I’ll report back soon.

Meanwhile, my second novel, working title Rock, Paper, Scissors, another romantic suspense set in my fictional seaside town of Borteen, has been sent to my publisher Choc Lit for consideration.

I’m now busy working on number three, which tells the story of Nick, my schoolboy artist, and Mandy, both from The Girl on the Beach. I had an interesting research trip on Sunday, accompanied by my husband, to learn more about the job of the hero in this book. Watch this space for a blog post about that sometime in the future.

Next week, I have Choc Lit author Kathryn Freeman joining me on the blog.
