Cake for the faithful- part 2


That was me trying to get you in the mood for Halloween. I love Halloween. I love the costumes, the tricks, the treats, the rather marvellous ghost stories...

Which reminds me, now you've mentioned it. My chilling short story Late: a ghostly tale is free this Halloween! Follow the link on the right to go to its Amazon page. Only the faithful know about this special offer- I did promise that there would be cake!

Don't forget to leave a review once you've read (and hopefully enjoyed) my tale of terror. You can also leave me a message here.

Happy hauntings...

Cake for the faithful- part 1

Morning! You're looking rather fetching today- very smart.

What's that? You're at work? Sneakily checking out the blog of a rather talented and easy-on-the-eye writer? Don't blame you. I would.

Seeing as you're busy, I'll make this quick (no sniggering at the back! Filth...)

I just popped in to let you know that there's a rather tasty snippet from The Hungry-Man ready for your perusal on my website. Thought you might be interested... Cake for the faithful and all that. Find it on the Teasers tab.

Toodle-pip, sweetie. Enjoy your day.

Live What You Love

Two things happened this weekend that combined to bring me a sweet and perfect moment of clarity, and I felt compelled to share. The first, a message from a friend sharing some sad news. The second, a conversation with a lovely lady at Harvey's agility training today. I never caught her name, but her dog was called Blue (and he is one of handsomest dogs I've ever seen) so I shall call her Blue's Mummy. More on that in a moment. Let me set the scene first.

Something wicked this way comes...

Despite a shameful lack of sleep, and an equally shameful "still-in-my-dressing-gown" status, I have been a busy bunny today.

My plans for world domination and scaring the trousers off of people have taken a step forward. I have negotiated the tricky world of techy-geek stuff and presented a humble offering to Amazon. Fingers crossed I can pull it off (the plan, not people's trousers- that's my other secret plan). I'll let you know as soon as a certain spine-chilling short is available to download. Until then, enjoy the sneak peek on my website.

Do feel free to leave a comment telling me how excited you are about this development and, if you love your friends, (or at least want to see them reduced to a quivering wreck by a ghostly tale) be sure to spread the word. There will be cake for the faithful.

Late, but nearly there!

I've just finished the (almost) final edit of "Late". Here's a little preview to keep you amused.

A Brief First Encounter.

Well, here we are. It was a bit of a whirlwind journey but, like most of my decisions, not as sudden as it appears.

I was once described (by a good friend) as a "criminal mastermind"- a synopsis that, once explained, I fully agreed with. I don't make rash decisions. People who don't know me well think I can be impulsive, but everything has always been ticking away quietly for a while. I hope you'll stick around and give me a chance to explain myself. It's late now, and good girls should really be in bed.
