Publication day in Canada and the US

 

Today sees The Christmas Promise published in Canada and the US. This is a huge thrill for me, especially to see The Christmas Promise with its gorgeous new cover for a new market. I hope that North America likes this story of Ava trying to keep a very special promise to Sam and Wendy. The Christmas Promise was my breakthrough book in the UK, flying up to the #1 spot in the Amazon Kindle UK chart and sticking there for five days.

What else can I tell you about this book? Oh, yes: handmade hats and revenge porn. For how I combined these elements just read the book. Enjoy!

On a snowy December evening, Sam Jermyn steps into the life of bespoke hat maker Ava. Sparks fly, and not necessarily the good ones.

Times are tough for Ava – she’s struggling to make ends meet, her ex-boyfriend is a bully, and worst of all, it’s nearly Christmas.

So when Sam commissions Ava to make a hat for someone special, she makes a promise that will change her life. She just doesn’t know it yet…

Readers LOVE The Christmas Promise – and soon you will too!

Reblogging a writing tip post I wrote for the Hampshire Writers’ Society blog:

Sue is worth reading, she has reached the coveted #1 spot on Amazon Kindle, won the Readers’ Best Romantic Novel award and the Katie Fforde Bursary; and she’s been nominated for several other awards, including a RoNA.

The events are coming thick and fast at the moment. I’m really looking forward to this event in Tring not just because they’re putting on an AWESOME festival but because I’ll be sharing the slot with my author buddy Jules Wake. I love her books! She also writes as Julie Caplin too so she keeps me in plenty of reading fodder.
