  1. Bless me, lovely subscriber, for I have sinned. It’s been six weeks since my last newsletter. At least I didn’t tell a huge porky-pie when I said wouldn’t inundate your inbox too often.  Don’t you hate being bombarded with too much mail?  I’ve just shown my hubby how to delete masses of emails in one go, and he’s in the living room drinking tea and deleting messages going back to 2006.

    Where has this year gone? Mid-August already!

    I’ve been busy writing two more books which I’ve just released…

    The first is The Lie, the Witch and the Wardrobe (I know, can’t resist the silly titles). It’s the second in the Witches of London series. Here's a wee blurb...

    Newbie witch Angela is flying high. Her London business, Angela's Lashes, is going well, and she's soon to marry her beloved Bertie. But the Enchanted Oval Council throws a nasty spanner in the works. They order her to seduce Epoch Thrasher, a power-crazy politician and head of the Brexodus party. Mission — to divert his attention and stop him from becoming Prime Minister.

    Can Angela save the world? And, more importantly, her relationship?

    I can’t take all the credit for this story as I had some help…

    from a wood pigeon who turned out to be an editing genius. Here is a photo of Percy, the pigeon. For a while, he had a sore wing and liked to sit at my feet in the garden while I pecked at my laptop…

    as he pecked at nuts and seeds. 

    He’s better now but still pays an occasional flying visit. 

    The second offering is a short (6000 word) short story, The Lost Duchess, set in Edwardian London…

    The Duke of Dalby is frantic. The duchess's carriage has returned without her. But the footman and coachman swear she was in it when they left Madame Fifi of Mayfair in the brougham.

    Where can she be? What can have happened?

    When an unpleasant letter arrives, the duke is in a race against time to save his beloved. 

    A tongue-in-cheek Edwardian mystery

    And last but not least, Scarlett King and the Guru (Reluctant Time-Traveller Book 1) will be FREE on Amazon on Monday, August 19th, 2019, from 12:00 am to 11:59 pm (PDT). Put a note in your diary!

    Oh, and as you may have noticed, all of my books are now enrolled with Kindle Unlimited (apart from Izzie Firecracker's Meditation Method, which is free.  I love Kindle Unlimited as a reader, so it seems silly not to add my books to the library. 

    That’s it until next time. I don’t want to take up any more of your valuable weekend. 

    Have fun and see you soon!
