The audiobook of Search for the Light is now live. I have some free credits if anyone is interested. Maybe I will do a blog tour for it when I have the inclination.
Its’s been a fairly terrible month losing my best friend and my mother so I haven’t felt like doing much. I wrote a 100 word story about grief it which helped. It was published yesterday. on Patricia Osborne’s blog.
However, life goes on and there are deadlines approaching so I have to get back to work. The Arundel Festival begins in 10 days. Chindi will be running a bookstall for the whole festival in aid of Cancer Research. If you are in the area do came and say hello. We are featuring some new authors this year. It’s an opportunity to buy Christmas presents. This is last year’s promo. This year it begins on August 16th and carries on until Bank Holiday Monday.
I am almost there with the Christmas book too. I have sent out the e-book for a final proof. The launch date is October 20th but it will be going up for pre-order by the end of this month hopefully. We have 16 cracking stories, including a new one of mine. We are hoping to have host a physical launch in November where people can buy the book at a discounted price of £6.
Here’s the blurb –

Warm, witty, poignant, magical and ghostly – there’s something for everyone. A perfect Christmas read.
