Highlights of 2019

Posted on 26th December, 2019

Hello to all of you and I hope you have had a happy Christmas. In this space in between Christmas and New Year, I thought I'd look back at some of the special moments of 2019.


First of all, one of my books was featured on the radio! Back in May, Radio Berkshire made The Deserter's Daughter their Book of the Month. If you haven't already heard it, here is the bit where the three reviewers gave their feedback on the story.



It takes just over 4 minutes to listen to.





Another highlight was watching the success of The Sewing Room Girl when it came out in paperback. This was partly owing to a successful blog tour organised by Lesley Crooks, my editor at Allison & Busby, and partly to the book's being featured on Book Bub.


As a result of these two, it reached the dizzy heights of number 10 in the Amazon Saga chart and number 13 in the Family Sagas and Romance Sagas charts.




Another important moment was introducing my new pen name. I have wanted to write a series for a long time and, as Polly Heron, that's what I'm going to do. I've also wanted for ages to write a Chrsitmas-themed book, but you'll have to wait until book 3 is published for that!


So I'm feeling very good about 2019 and I'm looking forward to 2020, which kicks off with the e-book and paperback publication of The Surplus Girls on January 2nd.


And there is something else I'm very much looking forward to as well. It's under wraps for now, but I'll share it as soon as I can and I hope you'll be as excited as I am.


Wishing you all the best for 2019.
