It’s Autumn (almost)! I love, love, love this time of year. I love the colours, the smoky scent in the air and the shopping for layers of clothing to wrap up nicely in. And, speaking of shopping, Love You Better is on offer for the WHOLE MONTH of September in the UK and US marketplaces! What are you waiting for??
There are only TWO DAYS LEFT until Love You Better is officially released. OMG! And to make myself even more nerve-wracked, I’m setting off on a week long book blog tour. Come along for exclusive reveals, giveaways and more. Now I just need to find someone with a tour bus and yellow-only M & M’s 👍🏻 🙂
Last week, something amazon happened. Last week, I went to a book launch party (I’ve never been to one before, so that in itself was pretty cool), but what’s more, it was a launch for Love You Better!
What was even more bonkers, was that it was sitting at #2 on Amazon that day. C-r-a-z-y! I’m sure I’m not the only writer out there who’s fantasised about a launch party. It’s a celebration of all those hours of self-doubt and hard work, and sharing with friends. It was all of those things, and even though it was more of a PR do than a ‘book launch’, I was super blessed to have been able to celebrate it with my lovely German boyfriend and an old time friend of mine.
It was held at Drink, Shop & Do, a cute little place on Caledonian Road. It straddles being a cocktail bar with a crafts centre, and while I can’t vouch for the crafts, believe me when I say the Lychee and Gin cocktails were superb! I had a great night chatting with the journo’s who’d turned up, as well as spending some much needed face time with my publishing team. It was a night I’ll never forget, and no matter what happens with my writing career following LYB (and I admit I am BRICKING IT!), this will definitely, definitely be one of the highlights 🙂
Almost! It’s been made available on Kindle First – a kind of book club for Amazon Prime members. If you have Prime, you can download and read Love You Better for FREE for the month of September, and if you’re not a member then you can always join up!
Kindle Unlimited readers and everyone else will still be able to read it from 1st October 2015, but I must admit, I’m a bit nervous/excited/scared to see what this first release will be like. It’s already at number 4 in the UK chart, but I hope everyone actually enjoys it!
Just as a reminder, here’s what it’s about!
Eeeeek! That’s it! Wanderlust is finally out, just in time to download to your Kindle for some holiday reading. I mean, who doesn’t love a good holiday romance? The accelerated getting-to-know-you process, spending magical moments together, heartbreaking goodbyes and never knowing if you’ll see each other again. *sigh* It’s my firm belief that everyone should have at least one and whether you have or you haven’t, you can join Alex and Selina on the beautiful island of Ibiza by downloading it here. Even better, it’s only 99c/99p for tomorrow only!
In other news, my very own Alex (even though he is fictional) and I are on a road trip! Our sense of Wanderlust continues. So far, we’ve visited Zurich and Marseille, and are currently in Uzes, the place that sparked my travel bug and is the inspiration for Colinas Verde in Wanderlust. Afterwards, we’re heading to Spain, back through France to England and then back to Germany.
