The Best Is Yet To Come – OUT NOW!
My sixth novel The Best Is Yet To Come is out NOW! It’s available in paperback, e-book and audio book.
It’s a story about two neighbours who are both struggling with finding their place in the world. For Izzy, motherhood hasn’t been what she was expecting but how do you admit that you’re finding it so hard? Pensioner Arthur’s stubborn streak means he’s pushing away those who want to help. Perhaps if they both let others in they may learn that the best is yet to come.
I’ve been blown away by the lovely early reviews from bookbloggers and authors who received an advance copy.
‘Uplifting, warm and full of heart’ Cathy Bramley
‘I’ve never related to a character more’ The Unmumsy Mum ‘
Heartwarming and full of hope’ Clare Pooley
‘A wonderful, heartfelt contemporary novel that will leave you smiling’ Netgalley reviewer
‘A comforting yet emotional read of pure escapism’ My Weekly
Having such kind praise and five star reviews certainly helps with my anxiety levels as life is a little out of control at the moment. All bookshops and libraries are currently closed because of lockdown in England, so it’s a VERY strange time to have a book out. This means that your support makes even more of a difference!
I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has bought a copy or recommended it to a friend. You can currently get the paperback for just £6.39 and FREE UK delivery from Hive (plus this helps to support local bookshops!). If you fancy a signed copy then the kind folks at Kenilworth Books and Warwick Books can sort you out.
Sadly, I won’t be celebrating publication day with a nice meal out or a glass of fizz in a bar with friends (boo, COVID) but I will be celebrating at home with John and my children. I never imagined writing one novel, let alone six! It’s a day to feel a real sense of pride and to make some plans for a BIG party when this is all over!
Have you got your copy yet?
It’s six months since the release of Destination Thailand and I’ve got A LOT to fill you in on. Like, grab a cup of tea, pick out a cake and put your feet up – as we might be here a while!
In order for us to move on in life, we must understand and accept that the past is in the past. Easy for some to say and do but in reality this can be a huge obstacle to overcome.
I’ve started this blog post three times but not managed to hit publish as I’ve felt like there’s too much I want to say but the words have deserted me which I pray is temporary…
I spent way too long deciding what to name this post. The moment my childhood dreams came true, the holy baloney is this even happening or just I’ve got something to tell you teaser.
I’ve mentioned in a few older blog posts about how I was writing a novel, but I never went into too much detail about the how and why of this process.
