Should Have Known Better only 99p/99c!
August is my favourite month of the year, not least because my birthday falls on the 12th. Twenty-four again, can you believe it?!
I'm celebrating early with a flash sale on my latest domestic thriller, Should Have Known Better.
If you've not read it yet you can download the ebook for only 99p/99c on Amazon. But it won't be at its sale price for long, so grab your copy now.
And if you've read and enjoyed it already, please tell your friends about this time-limited deal!
Meanwhile, the response to Should Have Known Better continues to amaze me.
This week the book reached its highest ever position in the Amazon charts, ranking at number 165 in the UK store and number 682 in the US store.
Which, considering there are now almost seven million English language books for sale on Amazon, is pretty cool!
On Thursday, over on Instagram, I was The Writing Champions Project's Indie Author of the Week, which was great fun.
I also finally managed to get to the hair salon for the the first time in four months. Ringo, my hairdresser, has been cutting my hair for 22 years. He's fantastic, and didn't even bat an eye when I set him the impossible challenge of turning me into Ruby Rose from Pitch Perfect 3.
I know you can't make a silk purse from a sow's ear, but I was very pleased with the result. Which is testament to his skills rather than my looks!
Here I am, before and after, with the beautiful Ruby Rose herself...
I haven't had as much reading time as I'd like lately, as I'm currently deep into writing the first draft of one of my Riverdale pony stories (written under my married name, Amanda Wills), but I do have one book recommendation for you. Minstrel the cat also enjoyed it, as you can tell!
The Perfect Life by Valerie Keogh is just my kind of book exploring, as it does, what happens when extraordinary things happen to ordinary people.
At first glance protagonist Molly Chatwell has the eponymous perfect life, but this would be a very dull read if that really were the case.
Fortunately for us readers, all is not quite as it seems, and Molly’s perfect life begins to unravel in a spectacular fashion after a chance encounter with a charismatic stranger.
The book was a lovely, easy read with great narrative drive and kudos to the author for that. I couldn’t stop turning the pages because, like Molly, I had to know who was behind the attempts to turn her life upside down.
It was a great domestic thriller which I raced through in about three days, and I'm looking forward to reading more of Valerie's thrillers.
It was ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ from me!
That's all from me for now.
