A Book Launch!

Oops, there go my good intentions at updating the blog regularly, but I do have a good excuse. I’ve been cracking on with book two, or at least trying to (it’s going a lot slower than I would like), but I’m determined to seriously crank up my word count over the next week or two.

I did have some lovely light relief this week when I attended the book launch of fellow Carina debut author, Amy Bird, in London. Amy read from her novel, Yours is Mine, a psychological thriller in which two women trade lives and it sounds an absolutely intriguing premise. I can’t wait to read this one. Yours is Mine was released yesterday and you can read more about it here.



It was a lovely evening with a cake (how fabulous is that?), Prosecco and book readings. Now that’s my kind of party!





Carina authors2
Nina Harrington, Amy Bird, Annie Lyons and me!




It was also a wonderful opportunity to meet with some of the lovely Carina editors and fellow Carina authors, Nina Harrington and Annie Lyons.


In other news, I’ve had a sneaky peak of my cover for ‘Desperately Seeking Heaven’ and it’s absolutely beautiful. I can’t wait to share it .

    Thanks, Ginny. The cover is so pretty, I’m so pleased with it. Yes, the book launch was fun and that cake was big, but gone in a matter of minutes! Perhaps I should have a cake for publication day, any excuse, eh?

This is so wonderfully open-handed with you to present unreservedly what most people would’ve sold for an electronic book to help with making some money on their own, primarily seeing that you might well have tried it in the event you wanted. Those techniques in addition worked to become a great way to realize that someone else have the same passion similar to my very own to see somewhat more with reference to this problem. I know there are some more pleasurable situations up front for people who see your website.

    Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a
    sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell
    to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and
    it pinched her ear. She never wants to go
    back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
