  1. Free and Bargain Romcom Books for You

    Posted on

     I have some goodies for you...

    Writers fall into the plotter or pantser category - or a hybrid of the two. 'Plotter' is self-explanatory - write the plot first. But a 'pantser' writes by the seat of their pants. I’m a born pantser, literally can’t plot to save my life (I've tried!) So I usually start writing with no more than a vague idea...

    My ‘vague idea’ for Time-Travel Guru was...

    Scarlett King is sick of her controlling fiance of six years. After a relationship last straw, she flees to a self-help seminar and falls for hunky course leader. That was my 'plot' in a tiny nutshell. 

    The ensuing time-travel element was as much of a surprise to me as it was to Scarlett. And she and the hunky guru go on a rescue mission - to a star-studded party in1976. This book became the first novella of Scarlett King's Time-Travel Adventures series.

    Book 5 of this series, Time-Travel Christmas is FREE until this Friday. Join Scarlett and Gabriel on a fun, romantic, slightly dangerous 1950s Christmas trip in jolly old England.

    Also, Time-Travel Halloween (a short story and 4th in the series) is FREE for the same period. 

    The above can be read as standalones but if you prefer to read the earlier books first they are currently reduced in price...

    Time-Travel Guru, Time-Travel Ghost and Time-Travel Gipsy are on countdown deals on Amazon.com and Amazon UK for only 99 cents and 99p until this Saturday.

    Enjoy your zany and romantic trips to the past - but make sure you return to the present day!


    Also, here are some book promotions for you. The Christmas in July promo is festive-themed freebies, and Into the Magic is bargain books with magical elements. Just click the pics and enjoy a browse....


    Stay happy!

  3. FREE ebooks, an Offer, and a NEW RELEASE for You

    Posted on

    I hope life is treating you well, and the sun is shining. 

    Today I have freebies, an offer, and a new release for you...

    Most of my books have magical or supernatural elements. So I decided to go all out (or all in!) and write a lighthearted paranormal cosy mystery with a sweet splash of romance...


    Baking and Entering, numero uno in my new Milly’s Magical Midlife series, is set in 1980s London, and here’s the blurb…

    A  sassy-mouthed cat. A vengeful ghost. Can a recent divorcee solve a magical mystery before she joins the deceased?

    Forty-year-old Milly's life is dull. Her marriage is passion-free, and her shoeshop job is 'sole' destroying. When she and her husband separate, Milly longs for excitement and glamour. But on her paltry wages, her life is more orthopaedic sandals than designer heels...

    But on divorce day, she inherits a fortune and a posh London pad. Thrilled, she hotfoots it to the capital.

    Milly couldn't be happier in her new home with its zany young neighbours. Until she discovers a resident ghost, who claims someone murdered her. Suspected weapon? Baked goods laced with magical vanilla essence.

     The ghost asks Milly to investigate with the help of a 200-year-old Siamese cat with a sassy tongue.

    A prime suspect is the ghost's hunky son, who Milly falls for.  And in a twist of fate, if the son is innocent, Milly must return her fortune. And if he's guilty, she'll lose out on love. 

    If you enjoy paranormal comedies with plenty of magical mystery and a dash of romance, you'll love Baking and Entering.

    Click here to buy Baking and Entering or read for Free via Kindle Unlimited.

    Continuing the magical theme, I also have a freebie and a bargain for you this month. They are both in my Touch of Magic series of standalone romantic comedies...

    The freebie is Walkies, Darling!

    And Awful Wedded Husbands is reduced to 99 cents and 99p in USA and UK respectively. For some reason, Amazon doesn't do countdown deals outside these locations. Although the Walkies, Darling! freebie should be on all Amazon sites!

    The Touch of Magic offers are only available for a few days.

    And also don’t miss this Summer of Love freebie bonanza. Click here or the below image for oodles of free reads.

    Wishing you happy days, and I'll blog again soon soon.
