Hello my lovelies,
It’s been a while, I know. Where does the time go, seriously. This year has gotten so busy time-wise that I haven’t had that much time to focus on my blog, and you. Hopefully, with the holiday season fast approaching, that will change. I’m quite looking forward to it to be honest. Have so many plans with my stories! (Writing them, editing them, writing more…) endless!
At least this year I managed to publish my second book on Kindle, Charming Mr Stewart. Have you had a chance to check it out? It’s a bit of a romance, but it’s also about a woman learning to live her life her own way after a tragedy. About a mother who goes from feeling like she doesn’t know how she is raising her kid alone, to a woman empowered and confident in herself and her actions.

NOTE: Free Kindle eBook giveaway scheduled for 1-3 December 2017 to celebrate the start of the giving season!
Can’t wait for you to grab a copy of it and enjoy reading with your favorite glass of wine and AC blaring cool air at you in the heat, or by a crackling fire if you are somewhere cold. I like to say the book has an air about The Runaway Bride, and a touch of Pretty Woman about it if you love reading love stories about two most unlikely people to fall in love. (Damn, I gave away the story line!) NO, but seriously, if you love your Marian Keyes, and a bit of Nicholas Sparks, then I’m pretty sure you’ll like this.
Some of you have already read my first novel, In Strange Company, and you loved it. The responses I got for it were so overwhelming that they made me emotional. After all, it’s pretty much why most writers write, so to see so many people grabbing a copy of that was very heartfelt moment for me. So here I am, once again, hoping that you will support and love this new book of mine.
A free book giveaway campaign for it will be running from December 1st to December 3rd to celebrate the wonderfully quirky year I’ve had, and to celebrate the beginning of the holiday season and hopefully what will be a beginning of something new and better for everyone. It’s the season for hopes and dreams and those pesky New Year resolutions to be completed and new ones set. This is me, trying to tie up one of my resolutions still outstanding this year… Promote my book, give it some sort of chance to become its own thing, one tiny step at a time.
How many of you struggle to promote you work? Am I the only one that struggles this much and draws a blank? I suck at promoting, and that’s a fact. When I was writing this latest book, I was thinking about pitching it, and would always come up blank. Pitching is the bane of my existence. It’s the thing that makes my heart race, and my palms sweat because I have no idea how its done, nor what should be the way to approach it. Definitely a skill I have yet to master, but I haven’t done Charming Mr Stewart enough justice. I haven’t pitched it to enough and I feel very guilty, like I’ve neglected a child or something. But no more. Here is one of my resolution come full circle. I published a book, and I have to make an effort to promote it to, one small step at a time.
I hope you’ll join in on the days and grab yourself a free copy of your own to enjoy. 1-3 December. Don’t forget!
