Launching Online

So much publicity happens online when a new book comes out which is very exciting.  Launching my new rom com, The Perfect Hero, has been great fun.  I’ve been reviewed by many websites and I’ve been interviewed too and I thought I’d link to some of them here in case you missed them.

The first site to review the book was the marvellous Chicklit Reviews who adored the novel and particularly enjoyed the seaside setting of Lyme Regis.  It was also quickly reviewed by Novelicious who loved Nana Craig – one of my own personal favourite characters!

The wonderful Dot Scribbles also reviewed it and said so many lovely things about The Perfect Hero that it had me blushing!  And Sarah Broadhurst and Hot Brands and Cool Places loved it too.  And I was delighted to find that my book had been chosen as a ‘Book of the Month’ on the Lovereading website.

Then there were the interviews.  My Austen Dream World had lots of Austen-related questions for me, Chicklit Central quizzed me on being a writer, and Chicklit Bee had a fun and fast interview technique!

I also wrote a special piece about getting married in a medieval castle in the Yorkshire Dales for Chicklit Reviews who were celebrating the Royal Wedding with lots of fun features.

Of course, there were magazines and newspapers too including The Sunday Express, Closer, My Weekly, Jane Austen’s Regency World and The Burnley Express, and I’ll also be giving some talks and books signings later this summer at the Worcestershire Literary Festival and Chawton House in Hampshire.  

Phew!  And, no doubt, I’ll have it all to do again when my Austen addict books are published in the US in July!

Win, win, win!

If you’d like a chance to win one of three copies of my new book, The Perfect Hero, along with Sue Welfare’s latest book, A Surprise Party, hurry along to Chicklit Reviews

Yesterday, I finally finished the first draft of my new book, Mr Darcy Forever.  This is the third in my Jane Austen addicts trilogy and it feels funny to come to the end of it.  There will be edits, of course, but I feel like it’s the end of an era.

It’s online!

Well, I’ve just had a wonderful surprise – my new novel,  A Weekend With Mr Darcy, is available to buy at whole two weeks before publication day!

And it’s the same day as Sophie Kinsella’s new book, Mini Shopaholic
which I’m so looking forward to reading!  The wonderful site, Chicklit Reviews, is celebrating by having a Sophie Kinsella week and I was thrilled to be asked to contribute as I think Sophie writes the very best romantic comedies around.
