New Books

I had a cover come from France this week. Someone kindly sent me a lovely email with the cover of a book about to be published there. Captive of The Harem has been published all over the place and is my best selling book with HMB. I was thrilled to get this cover. I also picked up the cover of the second Sarah Beaufort Mystery/ Linda Sole. I thought I would put them bok up, Linda

More news

I now have three books coming out with Dark Eden Press and will write more nearer publication. My new trilogy with HMB starts next month and I am going to lunch at Richmond this week to talk to the publisher about a new contract (hopefully). I have sent off the third in the Sarah Beaufort mystery series and I have heard that SH want to publish a new saga trilogy. So it is all go on the work front. I like to be busy so that is great.

We have some squirrels again. Two little ones have been playing in the back garden, eating sunflower seeds and nuts. Two larger ones have been coming the last couple of days so that is nice. I did think we might have lost them again, but we haven't. The thrushes and blackbirds are mad for sultanas because they all have young. they fly up to the windos and fetch us out whenever they see us.

I keep hoping for more sun. We haven't had much this year, and we haven't been to Spain much either. I hope we shall go in September. It would be too hot at the moment from what friends out there tell us. I did swim when we were out there in June but that seems ages ago now! We have had a couple of pleasant days at the sea here, warm but not hot.

I feel so sorry for all the people who have been flooded! It must be awful, and especially when it happens more than once. To see all your things ruined that way! But thankfully there have not been many fatalities, which is even worse.

I have been watching the dancing at the weekends. I am looking forward to when the competition starts in earnest. I think this will be really good!

Oh, I must tell you about two books I reviewed for

Letters From Pemberley/Jane Dawkins and Old Frends and New Fancies.Sybil G. Brinton.

These were sequels to Jane austen books and I thoroughly enjoyed them. You can buy them from amazon and I think they are worth having if you really can't get enough of the orignal.

Bye for now, Linda

That was quick!

Dark Eden Press sent me a mock up of how my cover will look. It was very quick and it isn't the final yet, but I liked it and thought I would put it up.

Hasn't it been a lovely day. Venus won the lady's tennis. I hope the young girl might dio it but she couldn't. I expect it will be Federer tomorrow but fingers crossed for Nadal! I hope that match is a good scrap!

Love to you all, Linda

Went to the sea

Today we visited the sea house and it was lovely. The lawn had grown so long although it was only just over a week since we were there - perhaps more like twelve days if I am honest. In the garden the sun was shining and it felt lovely and warm. It isn't often we get such a lovely day at the sea and we really enjoyed it. I saw a bit of the tennis when we had our fish and chips for lunch - they are gorgeous! But it was raining again by the time we got home and the matches were postponed again. This Wimbledon must have been hell for the players! It is bad enough trying to watch!

Well, the kitchen is finished and we are thrilled with it. We have a new glass table (round) and perspex chairs - they look like glass but of course they aren't. It is all very modern and with it and I love it. Now it is done all the mess is worthwhile, though as I suspected I still haven't found everything.

This evening I have made a book trailer for the authors at Dark Eden. I hope they will enjoy it. I shall try to post the url - let's see if it works

Go and take a look if you have time. It is fun. Love to you all, Linda
PS I love this cover but I bet it won't be on the version that comes out over here - when it does. I don't know what they did the American one first.
