Good news! (And a peek at some old diary entries)

I’m in the process of moving house and, in the middle of the arduous task of clearing out the attic, I stumbled across some of my old diaries. These made for very entertaining reading which I will shortly share with you.

Before that though, I have something else to share – good news! I recently sent off the manuscript for A Class Entwined (Book 2 in my A Matter of Class series) to my editor for a manuscript assessment. I then spent a few weeks biting my nails as I anxiously awaited her feedback. Last week, she got in touch. And I’m so excited to say that she came back with Continue reading

A Class Apart discounted for a limited time!

Being an author these days involves a lot more than typing ‘The End’ with a big flourish. I knew this before I made the decision to publish A Class Apart, but over the past six weeks since my book was released I’ve become much more acquainted with all the different hats an author must wear.

For a long time I’ve been very familiar with hats such as writer, editor, proofreader. Now there are more hats to add to the pile: marketer, advertiser, promoter. My book won’t sell unless people know about it, and they won’t know about it unless I advertise it. So it’s time to Continue reading

Guest post – Transported in Time and Place

I’m delighted to say that I’ve had a guest post featured on the Toronto-based blog A Writer of History, which is run by M.K. Tod. The blog’s theme this year is Transported in Time and Place, so I wrote a piece about the research I did for A Class Apart and how I used it to transport readers to Ireland in 1828.

You can read the post at this link.

Many thanks to M.K. Tod for having me on her blog!

This is just a quick note to let you know that I’ll be hitting the airwaves again tomorrow, Tuesday August 7th. Tipp FM, my local radio station in County Tipperary, has invited me onto its daily show ‘Tipp Today’, hosted by Fran Curry. I’ll be talking about my book A Class Apart and also a little bit about my background in music. If you’d like to tune in, you can go to tippfm.com and click on their Listen Live button. I’ll be on just after 11am (Irish time)!

Some very good news for A Class Apart

I have a confession to make. Thrilled as I was to see everyone spreading the news of the launch of A Class Apart, it also made me really nervous – people were sharing it without knowing whether it was any good at all. What if they ended up not liking it? What if they read the first page and thought it was terrible? After the high of the launch, the crushing self-doubt seriously kicked in.

Then the feedback started to trickle in and – to this author’s unspeakable relief – the reactions have been positive! I am so delighted to hear that readers are genuinely enjoying my book. It is the best feeling in the world to know that Continue reading
