This is a well overdue update and not because I’m being slack, it’s because I’ve been baffled by being unable to access my website for a while! I was logged in, but it wouldn’t let me blog or update the site. Because I’ve been so busy writing and I’ve been unable to spend any time sorting it out, it never occurred to me that it might be something as simple as having logged in with the wrong email address!
Now I’m logged in with the correct email address, I can update and everything!
It is quite the mega update due to length of time, so, first, the books!
My second book with Bookouture, The Day that Changed Everything, came out on January 17th 2020 and the reviews and response have been such a blessing! Along with 99 Days With You that came out last year, the sales are over 25K and that seems such an astounding figure when I only ever thought I’d sell 100 copies of my first book and have now gone over 50K.
The other exciting part of this is that 99 Days With You has had several translation deals so it has also been released in France and the Slovak Republic (in hard back!) with more releases due later this year. So far every cover has been really different and I love all of them.
It’s been beyond my wildest dreams to have my writing well received in other languages as well! Thankfully Google Translate has helped with knowing the reviews elsewhere have also been really positive.
99 Days is also available in audio now in English and in Slovak!
As well as having more books out, I’ve also moved agencies with my agent, Hattie Grunewald. Having been with Blake Friedmann for three years, I’m extremely thankful for all their support in my early career and their continued help with the contracts they have put in place.
Hattie has joined The Blair Partnership and as one of her authors I get to go along for the ride. I’m so delighted for Hattie, she is an amazing agent and has championed my writing from the start. And because of her amazing talents, I’m now with the agency that represents JK Rowling and runs Pottermore! I was lucky enough to go and visit their offices and meet the team before Christmas where they already had good news for me which I’ll tell you about another time!
I’ve got through another winter by writing the next book (I like bunking down and getting one written while the weather is grotty in the UK) and I sent it to Hattie last week! I hope you have all been keeping well and are as ready for Spring as I am!
Love and light,
