Today I’m so excited to be welcoming the lovely Zoe May to the blog! I had the pleasure of meeting Zoe at the Harper Collins Summer Party this year and I thought she was just brilliant!

So, here’s what’s on my to be read pile… TP Fielden – Died and Gone to the Devon (A Miss Dimont Mystery, Book 4) I love a cosy mystery in the autumn! For me, it’s the perfect...

Author Interview – R J Gould

Today I’m talking to R J Gould so keep reading to see what writing tips he has to share! Hi Richard, tell me a bit about you and your latest work. My name is Richard but I use ‘R J’, this being my cowardly compromise after agents suggested I use a pseudonym because I write Romance. In case you haven’t noticed, there aren’t many males writing in this genre. I didn’t set out to write romantic...

One month to go…Snowflakes at Mistletoe Cottage!

I can’t believe it’s only a month until my third book Snowflakes at Mistletoe Cottage comes out! If you love a Christmassy read I hope you’ll check it out. It features one of my most favourite characters — Esme. She’s fiery and feisty, and lots of fun to be around! Plus she has an amazing group of friends. I loved writing her because despite the odds, she wants to make her...

Lost Words – Let’s bring ’em back!

As a lot of this blog is about writing, I wanted to write a regular article on my favourite forgotten words. You know the type of thing, those poor lost words that sit at the back of our minds, gathering dust, having been discovered years ago in literary classics like Dickens, or Austen. They are the spices of the literary world, but I refuse to let them sit in a cupboard and be ignored until...

Happy 1st Birthday The Little Theatre on the Seafront!

I can’t believe that my debut novel, The Little Theatre on the Seafront, has been out in the big wide world for one whole year! It makes me so proud to think that my debut novel has been bought and read by people, and that it has been available in The Works – a high street shop! Never in my wildest dreams did I think my first book would be sold as a paperback in an actual shop...

My first book signing!

I had such a great time on Saturday doing my first book signing at WH Smith in Bluewater! It was so wonderful to connect with readers and get to chat about books. I have to admit it did feel a little bit odd! When I wasn’t chatting it felt alien to be sat on my own with a pile of my books, but when I did get to chat to people it was a really lovely experience. The staff were super friendly...

It’s author interview time! Yay! Come and join me today to welcome historical fiction writer Nancy Jardine! Hi Nancy, can you tell me a bit about you and your latest work.

It’s Paperback Publication Day!

I can’t believe that I’m celebrating the publication of my second book in paperback! The first time this happened I made sure I savoured every single second and I’m definitely doing the same again this time! (Any excuse for champagne!) Ebook publication day is special because it’s the first time that story is out there in the world, but there’s something really...

Katie Ginger

The first thing you need to know about me is, I like gin. Lots and lots of gin.
I live in the South East of England in a lovely little town by the sea and spend my time working, running around after my kids, walking our King Charles Spaniel, Wotsit, and writing!

I love history and have a Master’s degree, but have also been lucky enough to work in various castles and museums over the years. I’ve yet to get one of them into a story though – I really must try harder!
