  1.  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!
