I’m very excited to let you know that The Postcard, a ghost story / magical Christmas tale is out now on Amazon.
It’s quite an amazing feeling seeing something that you created and spent the last few months losing sleep over on such a major site … I mean, it’s even on sale in Japan … which makes me sing that song … which has made my husband ban me from singing.
But really. Japan! I took a screen shot of it. (Yes, I am that nerd). Like I knew it was worldwide, but there was something so profoundly amazing about seeing my book in the Japanese Kindle store …
Anyway, so a few fabulous things happened since it went live – like a well-known book blogger asked to review it, and I also got quite a few sales – and for a tiny moment my sales rank was in the 60 thousands … which is pretty amazing for a newbie I think!
I decided, since it’s my first one to make it $ 0.99 / £0.77 … because well, why not really? Grin.
If you’d like a copy you can get it here in the UK Amazon store and here if you’re in the US … For any UK readers … ah you’d be doing me such a service … as I have as yet to make a sale there. And it’s Cornwall, people. Cornwall … grin.There’s also, and I’m just going to say it because, even my mother pointed this out, perhaps the most wonderful male protagonist ever, named Stuart. Who cooks. Every night.
Also if you’d like a review copy, please let me know, I’d love to send you one. Truly. I only have it in ebook .mobi form at the moment but I am going to try get it into epub as well if you’d prefer that.
And in case you’ve missed it (sorry if you’ve read this a million times – just stop scrolling, right now, grin) here’s the blurb :
“She always said she’d find a way to let me know that death wasn’t the end …”
When Ivy Everton, a children’s book illustrator, moves to Cornwall to start a new life with her husband Stuart, she’s given her mother’s old writing desk, a bittersweet token from a mother who made childhood magical.
When she clears it, she finds that the desk holds an unexpected surprise; one she wishes, in a way, that she hadn’t found, as wedged in the corner is a blank, faded postcard addressed to her, in her mother’s hand. At first, the postcard serves only to haunt her; as she can’t help but wonder what unwritten secret lies unsaid.
Yet, as the days pass mysterious things begin to happen, odd items go missing from her studio, only to reappear, ethereally transformed in the seemingly empty desk.
Soon Ivy realises that the postcard was never really blank, it was simply waiting … waiting for her to find it.
Part ghost story, part romantic Christmas tale, The Postcard is about finding hope, even in the darkest times, and about the kind of love that transcends time and space to heal.
Ah thanks for scrolling!
Please let me know what you think, I’d love to hear from you.
