And The Oscar Goes To... Yes, It Felt THAT Good.

Posted on 17th November, 2017

Sorry, but this week's blog is going to be devoted to me showing off.


If you have a passing acquaintance with my website, or if you follow me on Twitter, you may have noticed that the audio version of The Deserter's Daughter, read by Julia Franklin, was released on November 1st.


Well, when I received my copy of Isis Sounding's quarterly magazine, Audio Update, guess what was on the front cover...


In the general overview of the season's new releases, it not only introduced The Deserter's Daughter, but went on to say: "We're looking forward to her second novel, A Respectable Woman, next year as well." Wow!


Not only that, but when I looked inside at the sagas page, my book - my book! - had been given top billing.


It was such an honour. I felt like I had won an Oscar.


Sorry about the showing off, but I'm sure you can understand. I hope you've had a great week too.
