  1. A Friday Freebie and a Bargain New Release for You!

    Posted on

     It's Friday. Hurrah!

    Good news. I have a freebie and an introductory-price new release for you.

    Until Tuesday (March 10, 2020, 11:59 PM PDT) Over the Sea to Die is free on Amazon. It’s the third novel in the fun, zany Izzie Firecracker series and is mainly set on the fictional Isle of Scree.  I spent ten years on Scotland’s Isle of Skye so much was inspired by real events, albeit tongue-in-cheek and satirical...

    Beautiful Coco, who oft wails on a cold and windswept beach, Bible in hand, is based on a woman who moved to Skye expecting paradise. However, it was too remote for her city soul, and she had a nervous breakdown. All ended well. Does it end well in the book? Please read it for free and see!

    Skye is rarely ‘remote’ these days, and if you’re planning a visit, go out of season lest you wish to be stuck behind a long line of camper vans.  May and June are usually the best and sunniest weather of the year. I often wore t-shirts and cardigans in May, raincoats and sweaters in August! 

    What else?  Oh, yes, my latest release is Awful Wedded Husbands, a  romcom with hints of mystery and magic -- set in the 1970s -- my teenage years.  I look back fondly to when I ate masses but was as skinny as a string bean. If only. 

    The intro price for Awful Wedded Husbands is just 99p. 

     NB. The first half of Awful Wedded Husbands was initially published as Nice Girls Don’t Sleep Naked.  

     

    Keep happy.

  2. FREE today and tomorrow -- The Cat That Saved Christmas -- Meeow!

    Posted on

    Hello! 

    I hope you are well, happy and not too frazzled in this crazy month.

    Today I have a FREE eBook for you, The Cat That Saved Christmas. It's a short and sweet festive tale, part rom-com (about escaping from the wrong man) and part Christmas miracle...

    Here’s the blurb…

    In London, just before Christmas, Clara is smug about her perfect life and relationship.

    But the illusion melts faster than a snowman in the rain. Devastated, Clara flees to the Isle of Skye to lick her wounds.

    There, far from festive cheer, she experiences festive drear.

    As she falls deeper into the doldrums of despair, can a furry friend help? Because she has given up men. And not just for Christmas. 

    Where does the cat come into it?

    Wait and see, I don’t want to spoil the tale (tail).

    You can read it via your Kindle Unlimited membership OR it’s FREE on Amazon today and tomorrow (18th & 19th) Pacific Standard Time. Get it here. 

    Talking about Kindle Unlimited, I just enrolled most of my books and joined a fab Christmas promotion called Under The Mistletoe: A Bundle of Holiday Shenanigans.  It’s a fun selection of holiday-themed books and I’ve already downloaded a few onto my trusty Kindle. Can’t wait. 

    It’s such a  wonderful selection, and you can check it out here. The Christmas novella I penned last year, The Christmas Castle Ghost is in the happy bundle. 

    I won’t take up more of your time; I’m sure you have a zillion things to do…

    But snatch some time to yourself, check out the books, choose your faves and enjoy over a festive hot chocolate. Perhaps with swirly cream on top. 

    I'll be back in touch soon, maybe with another fun and festive offer!

    * NB. The free eBook (The Cat That Saved Christmas)  is a limited-time offer for 18th and 19th December 2019 PST.

    Best wishes and loads of happy vibes,

    Janet xx

     

  3. Free eBook -- you've invited to a party -- in 1976!

    Posted on

    Hello and a happy Tuesday

    Just a quicky to say Scarlett King and the Guru, first in my Reluctant Time Traveller series, is FREE on Amazon from today until this coming Thursday at 11.59 pm (Pacific Daylight Time). 

    It’s a mystical romantic adventure with a foray to a star-studded party in 1976. Mission? To rescue an endangered and renowned guru from an evil imposter.

    It's a somewhat tongue-in-cheek romp to the past. 

    So, don your flared trousers, dig out the love beads, burn some incense and enjoy. And be careful dancing on those platform soles. 

    Here in Scotland, the clocks went back on Sunday morning, so the sun (what’s that?) now sets at about 4.50 pm. Perfect for trick or treat!  

    However, today is lovely, and I spent a happy hour in the garden, albeit wrapped in about twelve layers, reading my Kindle. A cheeky wee robin visited, mainly interested in my scone, and flew away somewhat fatter than when he touched down. 

    Hmm. What else? Oh, yes. Most of my books are in the Kindle Unlimited programme, but will gradually come out between now and the end of November to be published wide (including Amazon). So, if you want to read any of them with your membership, now is the time.

    Have a happy week and a spooky Halloween

    Best wishes,

    Janet xx
