My writing week in the media spotlight


With the paperback release of my fourth novel THE GIRL WITH THE SCARLET RIBBON earlier this month, I've been rather busy media-wise.  

Pushing myself forward for promotion in this way is never easy. It's hard to make a song and dance about myself when I'm not a song and dance kind of girl. And so I'm enormously proud of myself for the following this week:

The book shot into the Bookseller's Heatseekers Chart at No. 20. More on that here.


I had a short story included in My Weekly magazine where there was also a competition to win 10 copies of the novel.

And there was a lovely little mention of the novel in this week's People's Friend magazine, at the end of this week's episode of my weekly soap opera Riverside.

Last week all of this happened:

Isn't Yorkshire wonderful? Featured in The Scarborough News and The Whitby Gazette and Yorkshire Evening Post

Featured in Books by Women chatting about my choice of locations in the book

Reviewed in Peterborough Telegraph (this one came via my publisher, Headline)

The novel went on a blog tour and you can read all the reviews here. (Blog tour organised by my publisher, Headline).

Plus, I had two short stories published. A contemplative, uplifting autumn story in The People's Friend magazine and a naughty, fun one in Take a Break's Fiction Feast.

And the week before last all of this happened:

Here I am on YouTube chatting about the new book and you can watch it here.

I've been on Radio Newcastle, Radio York daytime and again in the evening with Bek by the Sea. 

I've been talking about how I write in Frost magazine and was featured by Sunderland University

Plus,  there was a competition to win signed books in The Sunderland Echo.

I was even called Sunderland's best selling local author by Waterstone's.
