Slightly Belated 3 Years in Publishing Celebration – With Giveaway!

Hey guys,
Sorry I haven’t blogged much recently. It’s been a hectic couple of months with me chasing deadlines, preparing for GRL and then actually going to GRL (which was an amazing experience).
I’m finally home, between writing projects, and pausing for breath before I launch into the next book. I will try and do my usual monthly update for 1st of Nov (because I missed Oct), but this post is a quick one to celebrate my three year publishing anniversary – a few days late. The actual date was Sunday while I was busy nursing my GRL induced hangover 😉
Nothing Serious cover low res
My first book, Nothing Serious, was published by Dreamspinner Press three years ago on the 23rd of October. Since then, my life has changed so much. I never imagined I would be a full-time writer, or that people would actually want to read the words I put on a page. I feel so lucky to be able to write as my job, and am grateful to everyone who has made what seemed like a crazy dream into my reality. Thank you so much to all my readers!
Giveaway (NOW CLOSED)

To celebrate, I’m giving away an ebook copy of any book from my backlist (winner’s choice). But if you already have all my ebooks, then you can have a free ecopy of my next release, A Family for Christmas, once it’s available.
To enter my giveaway, simply leave a quick comment on this blog post.
NB: If you’re reading on Goodreads, please visit my actual blog to comment rather than replying on the Goodreads site, otherwise I may not see it.
Giveaway now closed. I will email my winner. Thanks for entering 🙂
