Hooray! Hooray! It's publication day!

 Hooray! Hooray! It's publication day for


at last!

It seems like I've been waiting forever to see this book land on e-readers and hit the bookshop and supermarket shelves and now the day has finally dawned! 

There's lots of celebrating happening online today, so keep an eye on my socials for details.

I'm hosting a wonderful GIVEAWAY on my Facebook Author Page and fabulous Sue Baker is kindly hosting the publication day party in her gorgeous new group - 

Riveting Reads and Vintage Vibes

Do join us if you can. It would be wonderful to see you there and of course, #shelfies are hugely appreciated and if you have a review to post, they're very welcome, too.

And talking of reviews, the Blog Tour, begins today! Huge thanks to everyone who has signed up to take part in that!

The fabulous blogging community willingly give up so much of their time to not only read books, but rave about them, too and us Writer Types very much appreciate that.

Before I go, I must share this...

I found two of my seasonal friends - Minceling and Frosty - had been taking lessons from Elf on the Shelf overnight and were ready to pose with the paperback this morning. I think they're worried about being upstaged by the fictional new dogs on the block, Queenie and Monty, and wanted to make their own mark! I've told them, I think they look fabulous and it would be impossible to upstage them - although Monty would definitely have a go!

Like me, they hope you enjoy Christmas in Nightingale Square and we look forward to introducing you to Holly and Bear.

Buy the book

Wishing you all a wonderful day and thank you for the love and kind words which have recently poured my way.

That Festive Feeling on Netgalley

 Lots of you have been asking and today - exactly 3 months until Christmas day - I can say, yes! 

For a limited time, That Festive Feeling is available to request on Netgalley!

About the book - 

Holly has the place to herself this Christmas. It’s not her place, though – she is house-sitting for friends who live on Nightingale Square – just there to keep the place warm and cosy and only for long enough for her to sort her life out. Newly single and finding herself unsure about next steps for her career, she plans to hunker down and make some life decisions.

To clear her mind, she sets off on early morning walks around a nearby lake and bumps into May, an older lady who is also new to the area, and her dapper Dachshund Monty. Quickly, a firm friendship blossoms. Then when Holly meets Bear, a rather large and rather attractive man, at the local pub, and his rescue dog Queenie, her stay at Nightingale Square suddenly feels even more appealing.

As the community comes together for the season’s festivities, Holly must start thinking about where her life will take her next. Some big decisions need to be made, but distractions close to home make thinking about the future more tricky than ever…

Will she get that festive feeling this Christmas…?

Request the book

Holly, Bear and I - and of course the two perfect pooches - look forward to welcoming you back to Nightingale Square for Christmas!

That Festive Feeling update!

 With publication day for That Festive Feeling just three weeks away, I wanted to give you a quick update about a couple of things.

Firstly, the paperback...

I don't really need to say anything, do I? The beauty of this cover speaks for itself, but the gold! And the dogs! And the moment when Holly and Bear meet... it's all perfectly portrayed!

Order the book

To add to the festive publication excitement, there's a packed blog tour, too. 

I had so many wonderful bloggers messaging to tell me that the spots for this were filled in a matter of minutes so HUGE thanks to everyone who wanted to be a part of sharing the Nightingale Square love and I'm really sorry to everyone who missed out.

That's all the publication news for now, but I'll have more to share soon.

If you want to chat to me in person, then don't forget I'm taking part in the Downham Market WordFest this Saturday (September 23rd). 

Tickets are still available and there'll be plenty of opportunity to get your books signed and say hello. I'm going to take my paperback with me too, so we can get some extra early festive pics. Hope to see you there!

With love
