Listen Very Carefully …

I am excited to share the news that Soundings has begun recording the audio book  version of The Thief’s Daughter. Their choice of reader is the very talented and experienced voice-over artist, Emma Powell. Emma has the perfect voice for the novel. It is soft, husky, mid-tone and expressive, which I believe can only add to the experience of being whisked back in time to the 18th century.

I am very happy with the care Soundings are taking to produce a quality audio book and cannot wait to listen to the completed version. It is always nerve-wracking to handover a novel that has taken a year or more to create, but now I know that Emma Powell is breathing life into my characters by the use of her expressive voice, I feel confident that The Thief’s Daughter’s audio version will be the best it can be and worthy of the new audience waiting to hear it.

The audio book version of The Thief’s Daughter will be available from 1st April, 2018.

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.

Blog Tour: Feeling at home on The Novel Points of View blog

On the fourth stop of my blog tour, I visited familiar surroundings  – namely the collaborative blog I take part in called Novel Points of View.

The NPOV blog is created by six writers and a talented photographer, who are passionate about creativity. It’s a great blog with a variety of posts, each one spilling the beans on writing, narrative, photography, reading and more.

My blog tour post was my experience of a book launch. Please click HERE to lift the curtain on what really goes on behind the scenes.
