Too hot to Handle!

So very sorry this alert is coming a little late.

A Surprise for Christine

I think the heat must have got to me as I forgot all about the FREE offer for A Surprise for Christine - 12 light-hearted short stories. These stories are what you would call, 'an any time read,' as each story is no more than 2,200 words. This means you can fit a story in, yes, you've guessed it - anytime.

However, as I said, I forgot this freebie was on, so you will need to be very quick as the offer ends tomorrow 29th June 2018

Check out my interview with American author, Diane Rapp at QuickSilver Novels

I am going to make that do for today. I am sure you are all too hot to sit and listen to me rabbit on.

Have a great day whatever you are doing.

Chink! Chink!
(Or is it too hot?)

A Sunny Day

Hello again on this lovely sunny Saturday.

I hope this finds you all as chirpy as I am today. To the best of my knowledge, the competition ended June 8th (I can almost hear you all sighing with relief at the news 😂) But then come to think of it, so am I.

However that said, I notice that it is still featured on their website, so if anyone feels in the mood to add their vote for Murder on Tyneside, then please follow this link: Read Freely scroll down past the book covers to the list of titles at the bottom.  If you have already voted, then I thank you all very much indeed for your wonderful support.

Divorcees .Biz

I don't know whether you have read Divorcees. Biz. It's a novel of fun and romance about four friends, all divorced, who decide to open their own dating agency. It would the ideal holiday read: light-hearted and frothy. 

But the big thing is, it is on special offer today only 99c/99p. Therefore, if you haven't read it, now is time to download a copy.

The offer only lasts 3 days, so best be quick.

I am planning on spending a few days at Newcastle. We just haven't go around to deciding when to go. I really want the weather to be nice and warm as I want to go down to the quayside and stop off at that wonderful place, The Pitcher and Piano, for a glass of wine - or two. If it is a sunny day, it is wonderful to sit outside and watch people walking across the Millennium Bridge to the Baltic Art Gallery and the Sage.

Ah well, on that wonderfully, happy note, I will say cheerio, but as Schwarzenegger always says - "I'll be back!"

Guess where!!

Another Freebie!

Yes, I am here to tell you about another freebie.

To tell you the truth, I don't know whether I am on my head or my heels at the moment.
Read Freely

I am still desperately seeking votes for Murder on Tyneside, which is in the Read Freely competition and runs for another week. If you haven't voted, then please add your vote today. I would much appreciate it. 💓 

Simply follow the link and scroll down past the book covers to the list of book titles in the competition: READ FREELY  Murder on Tyneside is near the bottom. 💓

The Trojan Project 

The Trojan Project is still  free to download, so I am promoting that. If you haven't got your copy of this suspense thriller, then best head over there and get your copy. I am not sure whether the offer ends today or tomorrow. There was a problem somewhere down the line. So it was pushed back one day. So, will it last one more day or end today as originally planned.... Your guess is as good as mine.

Only Twelve Days

And now Only Twelve Days is free to download until 5th June. Therefore I am trying to spread the word about that. I have to say that this charming romance/love story, would make a great holiday read. So, if you are heading off for your holidays, don't forget to take this book with you.

They do say everything happens at once and they, whoever 'they' are, are right.

In between trying to promote the above and my other books, I am working on my new novel. But, I hasten to add, I haven't got very far with it. No doubt I will get there in the end - or I hope I will.

Anyway, that is all for the moment

Happy Reading and Happy Voting!!

Help - Please add your Vote

Hello again,

Yes, I am still banging on about votes for Murder on Tyneside.  But I really do need your help.

Read Freely
I have heard from some people who have added their vote, but it seems to have slacked off lately. Therefore, if you haven't voted already, please spare a moment to follow the link Read Freely and add your  vote for Murder on Tyneside. Once at the site, simply scroll down past the book covers to the list at the bottom; that is where you place your vote.

However, if the link decides to throw a wobbly and takes you to the home page, there is a link at the top which will take you there.

I am sure you will all agree that, though it is exciting being in a competition, it can also be rather nerve wracking while waiting for the results. I certainly don't want to come last!  At the moment, I am trying hard not to start chewing my fingernails. I used to do that as a child, but managed to break the habit.

A Big Thank You to all who have already voted and another Big Thank You in advance to those who about to head over there now. Here is the link again - Read Freely

Wishing you all a wonderful day.

Voting Season!

Hello again on this lovely sunny afternoon in the Scottish Borders.

I must confess that this is just a quick stop by to ask you all very nicely if you would kindly add your vote for my novel, Murder on Tyneside. Actually, I only heard at the weekend that it had been nominated by Read Freely for their test competition, so it is all a bit sudden for me, too.

Anyway, as I said the competition is being run by Read Freely   Simply follow the link and scroll down past the covers to the list of books at the bottom of the page.

However, if by any chance the link throws a wobbly and takes you to their main page, it has a habit of doing that, sometimes, at the top of the page there is information on where to find the ongoing competition.

Thank you all in advance for your votes, it would be so exciting to win. However coming second or third would be really great.

Have a great day wherever you are. But don't forget to vote.  Read Freely

Special Request!!

Hi again everyone,

Yes, I am back again updating information about my recent releases. I know you will be fed with me for going on about Agnes Lockwood and how she continues to drive DCI Alan Johnson mad with her constant interfering in his police investigation. However, I do need to get the word out there and you are all in the firing line... well not literally, but you know what I mean.

The thing is, despite a large number of books having been sold, I really could do with some more reviews on Amazon. My publisher keeps telling me how important reviews are. Therefore, if you are one of the people who downloaded a copy of Murder on Tyneside  (Book 1) or Death on Tyneside (Book 2) and enjoyed Agnes's antics, then I would be very grateful if you would leave a review.

However, I hasten to add, if you didn't enjoy the novels, then please just l leave a message for me on here. You can explain to me what it was you didn't like or where I went wrong so that I can try to make the third in the series better.  Thank you!

Murder on Tyneside
Death on Tyneside

I would also like to take this opportunity to let you know that if you don't already have a copy of Murder on Tyneside, then it will be free to download from Tuesday 8th May until Saturday 12th May. What could be better than a freebie?  Make a note in your diary, though I will probably drop by on Tuesday to give you a quick reminder 😉

Now, I think I will go off and continue with the book I am reading at the moment. It is called A Mersey Mariner By Brian L Porter and I am really enjoying it. This is the fourth novel in the series about Detective Inspector Andy Ross and is set in Liverpool here in the UK.

That's all until Tuesday.  Have a great weekend,


Chink! Chink!
