Gratitude Giveaway

Thanksgiving is coming up in America and it's also my birthday, a time when I take stock of the year. It has been a good year for me. My dystopian novel, The Miracle Inspector, came out in paperback in September and has had some great reviews. It has been exciting to see it for sale in train stations and airports in the UK as well as online worldwide.

Alison Wonderland came out as an audio book and in a German edition in November. I also have a new agent and a deal with Thomas & Mercer to publish the first three full-length books in my Emily Castles mystery series in 2013/2014.

I'd like to thank readers of this blog for following my updates over the year. If you follow this blog or my Facebook page, please sign up to win a copy of one of my books in the Gratitude Giveaway, hosted by I am a Reader, Not a Writer. If you're not already following, you can follow my blog using Google Friend Connect (the box on the right about halfway down the page) or click here to join my Facebook page.

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to Donna M-T who was chosen using random.org and has been contacted by email.

You can choose from one of the following books. (The giveaway is open to international followers. I can send the book anywhere in the world.)

Alison Wonderland is a quirky literary comedy about a woman called Alison who joins an all-female detective agency in London. Available as an audio CD, in paperback or as a Kindle book. Also available in German if you'd prefer that.

Being Light is about a man who flies away on a freak gust of wind while installing a bouncy castle in Brockwell Park, London. When he doesn't come home, his wife hires a private detective to find him. Some of the characters from Alison Wonderland appear in Being Light but it's a standalone story and can be read without reading that book. Available in paperback or in any digital format for your ereader.

The Miracle Inspector is a dystopian novel set in London in the near future. England has been partitioned and a young married couple, Lucas and Angela, decide to escape to Cornwall - with disastrous consequences. Available in paperback or in any digital format for your ereader.

If you have an ereader and you choose a digital version of one of the books above, I'll also send you one of my short Emily Castles mysteries. The first full-length Emily Castles mystery will be published in paperback and Kindle format next year, 2013. (Please note that Alison Wonderland is only available in Kindle format so you need a Kindle or a free Kindle app to be able to read it.)

Three Sisters and Showstoppers are novella-length murder mysteries set in present day London. They feature twenty-six-year old amateur sleuth Emily Castles and her side-kick, philosophy professor Dr. Muriel. Available in any digital format for your ereader.
