October Update:

October is looking glorious here at the foot of the Blue Mountain, and in more ways than just the weather: I have exciting news!

I’m thrilled to announce that my Christmas novella Santa and the Saddler will be hitting digital shelves this month. This was such a gorgeous book to write and it’s my great hope that readers will experience the same joy reading it as I did while writing. The files are with the formatter right now, and as soon as I have them back and proof read I’ll set the exact release date. If you’d like to be among the first to be informed, please sign up to my newsletter. You’ll also receive a couple of sweet, subscriber-exclusive short stories to enjoy over a cuppa, plus loads of other fun stuff.

Big news regarding my full length novel Wayward Heart. The release date has been brought forward to December 12th, just in time for Christmas. Rah! There’s also a special offer on the ebook where you can pre-order your copy at a heavily discounted price. This is for a limited time only, so grab yours today!
