Project update

We’re halfway through the year, so I decided it was time for a little project update.
I’ve been working hard (too hard!) on my new novel, and have just broken through the 80,000 word barrier.
My faithful test reader who’s reading it chapter by chapter, says she loves it so far, so hopefully, I’m on a roll.
I’m running a little late this year due to the passing away of a very close friend which completely threw my stride, and then more mundane delays caused by burst plumbing and building extensions, but I’m still hoping to get it out (phnarr phnarr) before the year’s end.
In the meantime, The Photographer’s Wife has so far spent a full 8 months in the top 100 and sold more than 150,000 copies.
Thanks for all your ongoing support.

The Photographer’s Wife – well received!

The Photographer’s Wife has been out for exactly a month now, and has been very well received. It’s climbed the charts on Amazon (and is almost in the top 100) and so far all the reviews have been 4 or 5 star (bar one – there’s always one!) The blog reviews have been excellent too. Here’s a little smattering of Amazon and Goodreads reviews for your delectation :-)
