Our Beautiful Child is available right now!
I am so excited. It's been a really long day, waiting for it to go live... and then it happened while I was at work! I've waited so long to see this book become a reality - one of the stories of this collection actually pre-dates Cat and The Dreamer.
I'm not embarking on an official blog tour, but over the course of the next week or so, you'll find me popping up in various places with some guest posts. A few bloggers have helped me today with a release announcement, which include a random question taken from Jackie Magazine (circa 1984) - it seemed like a good idea at the time - so please pop in wherever you see the book cover, because you might learn something new about me, and them!
- On Kyra Lennon's blog, we answer a question about soap operas
- Murees Dupe and I share our nicknames
- Mark Koopmans and I tell you what we dreamt about last night... oo-er...
- Rachel Schieffelbein and I name things after ourselves
- Melissa Maygrove and I share fashion tips
and don't forget you can win a copy by visiting my website and leaving a comment.
- Our Beautiful Child is also being given away on Tammy's blog alongside awesome new books from Elizabeth Seckman and Nancy S. Thompson.
- Linda King has reviewed it here
- I'm being interviewed by Stephanie Faris here
- I pop over to see Jay Mims too
- Yesterday, I was at My Pet Blog talking about my home town
- Tomorrow I'll be with Vanessa Morgan talking ghosts
… so says the narrator of Our Beautiful Child. And he’s been around long enough to know.
People end up in this town almost by accident. Ella is running away from her nightmares, Sally is running away from the memories of previous boyfriends and Rona is running away from university. Each of them seek sanctuary in the 18th century pub, The Boathouse; but in fact, that’s where their troubles begin.
Ella finds love, a moment too late; Rona discovers a beautiful ability which needs refining before she gets hurt; and Sally meets the captivating Murray, who threatens to ruin everything.
Three women. Three stories. One pub.
