Still, it would be foolish to let things slide when we've come this far and since I do have a little bit of news to share here goes...
First off, we have a new cover for the ebook:
I have also experimented with a book giveaway on Goodreads. I'd read about authors doing this for a while but didn't fully understand the benefits until I joined in. Seeing as I had a few paperbacks going spare at home I couldn't see the harm so offered five signed copies to the UK, USA and Canada. I set the giveaway up to run for a couple of weeks and waited to see if anyone took the bait. The results were fantastic. Not only did 1,190 people enter but 180 added it to their 'to-read' shelves. One of these readers has already read and rated it 5 stars so I couldn't be happier. It never occurred to me quite how powerful a promotional tool this could prove to be and it's something I'll definitely be returning to in the future.
Finally, I was also delighted to see some reviews finally start to come in on the US Amazon site and even happier that, so far, they've all rated it 4 stars and above. Cannot begin to tell you what a confidence boost this is and it has definitely spurred me on to keep writing the next book - just as soon as these kids are back in school..... :D
Have a wonderful rest of your Summer everyone x
