I tried—really hard—to think of a word as a substitute for ‘home’ which began with a letter ‘c’, so as not to spoil the alliteration of this post’s heading, but to no avail!
Anyway, my baby is back where it came from, having been jollying about on a post-publication blog tour. You may have come across it now and again. In fact, it was pretty hard to miss, as it managed to visit around 30 blogs in its first week!
In addition to that, I’ve been quite busy myself, starting off on publication day with a visit to Anna at Diary of an Eccentric, and you can still read an excerpt from the book from that visit here. (The giveaway has now ended.)
Following that, I was on Frost Magazine as part of the Sister Scribes’ regular Monday feature, talking about the challenge of naming characters, and you can read all about it here.
Next stop was a double weekend whammy, firstly, calling in on my friend and fellow Swiss writer, Linda Huber, to talk about the influence of location on my writing and how Cornwall inspired the story behind The Cottage in a Cornish Cove. You can read all about it on Linda’s blog here.
Finally, I headed straight over to join Jo and her lovely cat, Jaffa, for the Sunday Brunch feature on Jaffa Reads Too, and you can enjoy our fun Q&A by clicking here.
Phew! All in all, it was a busy week!
Reviews, in the meantime, have been pouring in and they have been amazing! I am touched and overwhelmed by the love for The Cottage in a Cornish Cove, and I can’t wait to return to Polkerran and rejoin the locals as I pen the next tale in the series.
If you haven’t yet given the story a try, I hope these reviews will encourage you to do so. It’s heart-warming, uplifting, romantic and humorous. What could be a more perfect escapism during these days of worrying news and inclement weather than to grab a hot chocolate, your favourite jumper or blanket and curl up somewhere quiet as you meet the warm and funny locals of Polkerran, wallow in the delights of a Cornish fishing village and fall in love with romance all over again?
The Cottage in a Cornish Cove is available in paperback and eBook format and here are a few links, in an attempt to convince you how easy it is to get your own copy! 😉
