Easter Egg

Posted on Updated on

For those of you who like a bargain, or who like celebrating Easter in a non chocolaty but equally decadent kind of way, I have news. My publisher Kensington Gore has put the Secret of Aldwych Strand on special.

From Saturday 26th – Sunday 29th (inclusive) Book 1 of Mark and Lucy’s adventures is free, gratis – cost nothing to purchase for your Kindle.

For a slightly longer period – the 26th of March to the 2nd of April the other two tales in the trilogy are reduced to only 99p.

“Where do I get them?” I hear you cry as you charge your kindle and kindle app!

“Why! That’s easy. Click on the easter eggs!”

Gravesend – Craftastic

Posted on Updated on

Yesterday I went south of the river. It was fine. I survived. It wasn’t a friday night and I wasn’t in a taxi.

It was my first craft fair held in the heritage quarter of Gravesend in the Three Daws function room. There was a gentle stream of people, mouching around – buying the odd bit; talking about this and that -mainly about how quiet town was.

Since our first book fair – we’ve been speculating to acumulate. For the first time we had a banner and a locations videoin addition to our  bookmarks. I even thought about including a sheet of reviews It drew interest. People came over; and I was able to talk about the books in terms why it had short chapters and different narrators.

I sold books: to complete strangers. Always the sign of a good day. Contacts were made for other fairs that side of the river.

Agatha Christie I may not yet be – until Symington goes viral on publication next year, that is!  (Cue Twilight Zone special effects) but I didn’t go into this book writing lark to make money. I went into it to ensure that Mark and Lucy and Symington and Emily’s stories were told, and that people read them.

Book three was always going to be difficult to find a title for…

I wanted to use the phrase my Nan had for Whitechapel: Cut Throat Alley. But it just wasn’t working. Sorry Nan: Whitechapel Affair it is
