Review copies of The Postcard for any device
I’m thrilled to announce that I now have review copies of The Postcard available for all eBook devices, so while it is currently only available on Amazon at least reviewers can read it on their device of choice.
I decided to do this ahead of launching The Postcard onto all the major online retailers towards the end of March this year, so readers from Nook etc will be getting a sneak peak.
If you’d like a copy in exchange for an honest review, please let me know. I’d be thrilled to send you one.
Reviewing made simple
With regards to reviews, I’ve found that many people get put off leaving one because they think it needs to be long, poignant or read like it was crafted by Umberto Eco, which isn’t true. A quick sentence or two to say that you enjoyed the story or not, perhaps with a short reason as to why can be very helpful to fellow readers, and of course to writers as this helps spread the word about our work. It can also help us learn from mistakes or offer some insight into what readers would like. In short, it’s hugely beneficial. Grin.
Find out more about The Postcard below, and do let me know if you’d like a review copy, you can leave a comment, tweet me or pop me a mail and I’ll send you a copy for your device of choice.
“I rarely read such a beautiful writing style as this,” Isabell Homfeld, from Dreaming with Open Eyes.
” A beautifully written and truly moving book, that had my eyes well up on several occasions. The writing is tender and emotive, the story sweet and whimsical, and the characters loveable …” Paris Baker, Paris Baker’s Book Nook.
When Ivy Everton, a children’s book illustrator, moves to a coastal town in Cornwall to start a new life with her husband Stuart, she is 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 hidden inside is a faded postcard addressed to her, in her mother’s fine script.
At first, the postcard serves only to haunt her; a constant reminder of her mother’s last message, now forever silenced, and she can’t help but wonder what unwritten secret lies unsaid.
Yet, as the days pass, mysterious, inexplicable 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 blank, it was simply waiting … waiting for her to find it.
Part ghost story, part magical Christmas tale, The Postcard is about love that transcends time and space to transform and heal. It is available now from Amazon.
Thanks so much,
Such a beautiful story. I cried and smiled and enjoyed the journey it took me on.
Oh wow, thanks so much Maureen – so lovely to hear that!
May I ask you a big favour, if you have a minute would you post that onto Amazon as a review? I’d so appreciate it. 🙂
