Update: this giveaway has now closed and I’ll announce the lucky winner on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. Thank you to everyone who entered and apologies again to followers based outside the UK. I hope to do an international giveaway in the future!
An early Christmas present for one lucky UK-based reader: this lovely Yoshi book purse and a signed paperback copy of Art and Soul!
It’s been 7 months since I published my debut contemporary romance, Art and Soul.
Thank you all for your support. To everyone who has bought, downloaded, read, reviewed, spread the word and put the book on their Goodreads shelf, I’m tremendously grateful. And I’m sorry this giveaway is only open to UK-based entrants, but international postage costs are huge. Hopefully I can organise an international giveaway in the future.

How would you like to win 60 books?!
As part of their 60th anniversary celebrations, the Romantic Novelists’ Association has set up The Romantic Fiction Book Club on Facebook. The group is for readers who love romantic fiction and authors of novels which feature romance. If that sounds like you, you can request to join here.
To get the group off to a flying start, the lovely people at One More Chapter have donated a whopping SIXTY books to be won by one very lucky reader. And 60 runners up will also win one signed romance novel each, donated by RNA members.
Please note that the competition is open to UK residents only (sorry!).
Here are a just few of the gorgeous books you could win: Read on for details on how to enter!
Last week I celebrated my first blogiversary with a giveaway. Up for grabs were copies of these beauties:
The Mystery of the Clockwork Sparrow and The Mystery of the Jewelled Moth by Katherine Woodfine (click for my reviews).
I’m delighted to say that lots of people entered – thank you for taking part.
And the lucky winner is… Lindsay from Book boodle. If you don’t already follow Lindsay’s blog, you really should. Lots of lovely books and baking 🙂
On a blogging note, this was my first giveaway and first time using Rafflecopter. After initially being puzzled by a few things, in the end it was all quite straightforward. I’m now more confident I know what I’m doing and hope to host another giveaway sooner rather than later 🙂
Thank you to everyone who entered and all my lovely readers!

Who thought this day would come?
When I started this blog a year ago, it was mainly to give myself something to do while submitting my first novel to literary agents. There’s been some progress on that front, and while I still haven’t got an agent or publishing deal, I believe my book is better now than it was a year ago. In fact, I have a few more edits to make after receiving encouraging feedback from my reader in the Romantic Novelists’ Association (thank you, whoever you are) and then it’ll be back to submissions.
I told myself that I’d host a giveaway when I’d been blogging a year (this seemed unlikely last April) or had 500 followers (which seemed unthinkable). However, the stars have aligned and I’ve hit both milestones at the same time!
Thank you so much to all of you lovely people for following my ramblings and baking adventures. I put a lot of thought into what the greatest number of you might like to win for yourself or to pass on to someone else, and this is what I came up with… *insert drumroll*
