Christmas title AND cover reveal!

Hello, my loves! I'm kicking the week off with something extremely exciting - a title reveal AND a cover share all in one go. Yay!

I'm absolutely delighted to be able to tell you that I'm taking you back to Wynbridge for the festive season in a beautiful book called -


I'm currently writing it and loving being back in the town and catching up with old friends (especially the Connelly Clan) and getting to make some new ones, too.

Here's the cover, in all its glory! Isn't it beautiful? It was love at first sight and I didn't request a single amendment. Thank you so much to Pip and the S and S Team.

Here's a little taste of what this book is all about - 

Bella is living her best life in Wynbridge, with her beloved Spaniel, Tink. She’s found a way to keep the house she inherited from her grandparents while expanding her dream business – Away With the Fairies – and she’s ecstatic that Christmas is on the horizon!

In fact, everything is perfect until family friend, Catherine Connelly asks Bella if she’d be willing to rent part of the house to freelance author, Jude who is researching the history of the Connelly Clan and Wynthorpe Hall ahead of turning his findings into a book. The plan had been for Jude to stay at the hall, but he can’t cope with the chaos and Bella reluctantly agrees to open her door to him.

Initially, the pair clash but then friendlier feelings begin to grow and Bella finds herself wondering if Jude could become more than just another guest before it’s time for him to leave. That is, until he announces he has no time for Christmas!

Publication day is October 10th, but you can order today.

Wishing you all a wonderful week and than you for stopping by to read all about my exciting next book news!

With love

A writing year to be proud of!

I didn't get the chance to post this here on the first day of 2024, but I did have a little celebration via my social media accounts. Thank you to everyone who so kindly commented. I hadn't planned to add anything here after that, but when I sat down to warm my laptop up in anticipation of diving into the first draft of the new Christmas book next week, I thought I should take a minute to recall and reflect.

2023 was such a phenomenal writing year - 

It kicked off with the news that A CHRISTMAS CELEBRATION had been awarded the RNA Popular Romantic Fiction Award

And ended with the cork-popping announcement that 1 million copies of my books had been sold!

And in-between, I wrote another two books, one of which, THE BOOK-LOVERS' RETREAT was my very first standalone.

I attended some wonderful events too - and I have more lined up for this year - and met so many wonderful readers along the way.

2024, you have a lot to live up to! I think I better start writing, don't you?

Wishing you all a very happy new year.

It's a million!

 Well my loves, the year started on a high with me winning the RNA Popular Romantic Fiction Award for 2023 and it's ending on a high with the news that my combined sales have now hit...


I'm absolutely thrilled and popping up everywhere thanking as many people as I can! Readers, librarians, bloggers, bookshop bods, family, friends, my publishing team, agent and Swainettes everywhere who have read, reviewed and championed my books, you have all helped get me to this incredible milestone and I'm so grateful.

Cheers to you all and thank you so, so much!

With all my love

Christmas Reads with Karen King

And while I'm here, I want to say another thank you. This time to everyone who braved the weather and came to the Norwich Waterstones signing last night. The rain was absolutely pouring so in all honesty, I didn't expect to see anyone. The fact that the signing table was never without someone to chat to was hugely appreciated. Thank you.

And more thanks to store manager, Ben and Poppy, too.
