December Give Away

Seasons Greetings! 

Is it really December again? I'm frantically trying to get everything organised - presents bought, trees chosen, cards made (yes, made - craft project with the kids). I enjoy all this fuss though, Christmas is a fun time of year despite the horrible weather and short days. 

It's been a fantastic year. 2014 saw the publication of my novel Mrs Sinclair's Suitcase. I can't tell you what a thrill it's been, spotting my book in the shops, reading reviews (even the bad ones) and knowing that people are reading my novel. It's something I don't think I'll ever get used to. 

All the Mrs Sinclairs on my bookshelves!

The beautiful Hungarian and Italian editions

I'm fortunate that Mrs S has also been published in several foreign languages. To date, Swedish, Norwegian, Hungarian, Hebrew, Italian and Spanish, and more to come in 2015. It's also available as an audio book. All of which brings me to my December Give  Away!

The romantic Dutch edition

The Spanish version, using the UK hardback cover design

I am offering a copy of Mrs S in Spanish, Italian, Hungarian, Dutch or on MP3 CD (English). If you would like to win one of these editions, please reply to this post by midnight on Monday 8th December and I will pick a name at random on the Tuesday morning. I will post anywhere in the world, so if you would like to give your prize to somebody else, I will gift wrap it too (actually, I'll probably get my creative daughter to do the gift wrapping part!)

The English MP3 CD version (NB, does not play on a regular CD player. You need the MP3 thingummy-bob-bit! It does play on a PC though.)

I hope everybody has a wonderful December.



  1. You're AMAZING! *_* I'd like to win one of the editions.
    WOW!!! :)

  2. Grazie per il bellissimo libro da Lei scritto e che ho appena finito di leggere. Mi riferisco al Libro dei ricordi perduti.

  3. Thank you Rita, glad you enjoyed it! I have put names in a hat and Rosie, you have won! I will message you on Twitter, please send me your address in a DM and I'll send you a signed Book of Lost Memories.

  4. I've just read the Hungarian edition and absolutely loved it! :) I hope you'll soon have more books, because I intend to read them all in the future. :) Lively characters and lovely style. :)
    Best Wishes

    1. Thank you so much, PuPilla, I'm glad you enjoyed it.

    2. Why, I should be thanking you, for writing this wonderful story and also for your comment here and on my own blog as well, you've really, really made my day!

  5. I just finished your book and loved it. My husband bought it for me as I am Mrs. Sinclair and have been for over 52 years. It was so fun to see our surname in a book title. So glad we stumbled on to it. I loved how you used notes and letters mixed with the narrative. I also loved that the chapters were different lengths. So glad it got published in the USA.

    1. Thanks so much Mrs Sinclair for getting in touch. Really glad you enjoyed Mrs S. I'm glad it's been published in the USA too, it's been such an exciting time. It's wonderful to hear from people who've enjoyed reading my novel. When I was writing it I had no idea if anybody ever would read it, so it means an awful lot when people let me know that they have read AND enjoyed it. x
