Blog Tour: Talking about creating my favourite character – the antagonist.

On the seventh stop of my blog tour to celebrate the release of The Captain’s Daughter as an ebook and The Thief’s Daughter as a paperback, I stopped off to talk to Joanne on the Portobello book blog.

I used the opportunity to talk about creating my favourite character – the antagonist and how to bring some depth to the pivotal role.

Plymouth Literature Festival

This year Plymouth literature festival (PlymLit17) is a nine-day event held in the historic city of Plymouth in Devon.

The aim is to offer something for everyone and will include readers of fiction, non-fiction and sports books through to writers of flash fiction, poetry and plays. The event is growing each year and this year events will be held around the city with the aim of connecting local writers and readers, showcase new talent and help people to discover new books.

I was delighted to be asked to join a panel of writers for a Q & A session, hosted by the business editor of The Herald, William Telford.

The panel was made up of an eclectic gathering of writers.

Blog Tour: A Q&A session with a difference.

On the sixth stop of my blog tour, I visited Shaz’s blog called Jera’s Jamboree, where she hopes to provide “an oasis from life’s pressures”. It was a Q&A session, my first of the tour, and her questions were both thought provoking and a little different from the norm. I loved taking part and if you would like to read the interview and wander around her blog, please click HERE

Blog Tour: My Heroine Beats Me To Morton S.Gray’s blog.

On the fifth stop of my blog tour to celebrate the release of The Thief’s Daughter in paperback and The Captain’s Daughter as an ebook, I visited a fellow Choc Lit writer, Morton S.Gray, author of the wonderfully romantic suspense novel, The Girl on the Beach.

Morton and I have been online friends since we both signed with Choc Lit. It is one of those friendship that just clicks and it was great to finally meet her in May at the Romantic Novelists’ Association’s Summer Party where we were both finalists for the Joan Hessayon Award.

When Morton offered me a slot on her blog, I jumped at the chance only to find my heroine in The Captain’s Daughter had beaten me to it! Okay, so it wasn’t a surprise really, but what a great idea for a new blog series – character’s having a voice.
