One week until publication - WIN a bookmark!

Well, the final 7 day countdown until paperback publication of SAVING SOPHIE has begun!

2016 has been a very busy year - and it's going to end on a brilliant high note. The dream of having a physical book in actual shops is one that I didn't really think possible. But - in a week, that dream will be reality. 

Thank you to all of the people who have supported me along the way - a writer's journey is a unique one - and can be a challenging one! Having people alongside me during each stage of the process is what's kept me sane. Although how sane is open to interpretation. 

My youngest son designed some SAVING SOPHIE bookmarks - I am so proud of his patience (he most certainly didn't inherit that from me) I think he did a stellar job and I've had some lovely comments about them. 

I've also been asked by some people how they can get one.

So, for UK only for the moment (sorry!) - to get your hands on one of these beauties, all you have to do is Tweet/Facebook the Amazon link to the paperback and comment on THIS POST to say you've done it - simples!

Ten winners will be chosen at random and I will announce them here on Tuesday!

Here is the link you need: www.amazon.co.uk/Saving-Sophie-gripping-psychological-brilliant/dp/0008191816

Update: I spread this comp to Facebook too -  the winners of a SAVING SOPHIE BOOKMARK will now be contacted!

Thanks for those who shared the link! :)

More exciting news for SAVING SOPHIE!

I'm dead excited to share that SAVING SOPHIE will also be available as an audio book! 

I have listened to the audio clip on Soundcloud and it was a proud, yet strange moment hearing someone read the words I produced in my head! The narrator, Antonia Beamish, has a wonderful quality to her voice - I couldn't be happier with how she has transferred the written word to the spoken word! I'm really grateful to all those involved in making the audio version. 

It's TWO WEEKS today until the audio and the paperback are released - I'm now in the excited-but-scared phase (again!) 

Is there any other stage?!

SAVING SOPHIE is available now in ebook and you can pre-order the audio book and paperback HERE
