Teaser Tuesday!

Teaser TuesdayWelcome to Teaser Tuesday, the tantalising blog series where I share snippets from my works-in-progress, up-coming releases and published novels, and occasionally let writing buddies play around.

This week, a little taste of the book of my heart, April’s Rainbow. I am so proud of this book and very grateful to everyone who has bought and read it. Recently I was thrilled to bits to discover that ebook retailer Kobo had given it and Summer and the Groomsman a little best-seller banner. So thank you to everyone who has made that happen. It’s so cool!

Anyway, without further rambling, here’s a taste of gorgeous Tristan. Sigh. I don’t care if he’s fictitious. I still love that man a ridiculous amount.


April approached, coloured skirt swirling, thick black curls bouncing around her shoulders, shimmering with light. I wanted to touch that silky hair, wrap a long tress around my fingers and feel it slide away. Even then, on our first meeting, I’d wanted to touch every part of April. Looking back now, the strength of my reaction to her feels a bit over the top and stalkerish, but I owned one of those hearts that could fall in love in an instant and then spend years broken when it all turned sour. Too sensitive for my own good, Mum said. A bloody great sook, according to my brothers. Maybe I was both, but at least the only person I ever hurt was myself.

Here’s what book blogger 1Girl2ManyBooks had to say about April’s Rainbow: “April’s Rainbow is a really beautiful story exploring terrible grief but from a very interesting perspective which sets it apart. It’s heartbreak and love, despair and fragile hope that packs an emotional punch that will stay with you. 9/10” Click here for the full review.

    I don’t have favourites when it comes to your books, Cathryn, I love them all equally but seeing April’s Rainbow is different to all your other ones, maybe, just maybe, this once, I can have a favourite! Hee hee.

    Great review by 1Girl2ManyBooks.

      Aww, thanks, Sue. I’m probably not meant to have favourites either but I do and, as you know, April’s Rainbow is definitely one of them. But I also have to say that I’m mad for Wayward Heart too and Santa and the Saddler. Can’t wait for their release.

        Me neither, Cathryn. I know it wasn’t long ago when Summer and the Groomsman and April’s Rainbow was released but I’m still hanging out to read more of your books! I’m ecstatic to have your two novellas alongside your full length books – thanks to you that they’re not only on Kindle but in print too. I hope the same will go for Santa and the Saddler. My fingers are crossed.

          Yes, definitely planning to release Santa and the Saddler in print as well as ebook. Going the the process at the moment so keep your eye out for news.

          Wayward Heart is full length so will definitely be hitting all the shop shelves. Can’t wait for that. It feels like ages.
