Cleckheaton Literature Festival 2016

I've been asked to attend the Cleckheaton Literature Festival again this year. It's a great honour for me and I'm excited about the event.

I'll be there on Saturday 23rd April between 10 and 12. I'll be talking about my self-publishing journey and I'll share what worked for me - and what didn't!

Here's a link to the event.

Juli Blake - A Date With Revenge

The next Julia Blake short cozy mystery is now available. This one sees Julia getting involved in the dating scene - but things don't go well for her!

I love the image on this book because it reminds me of a main street in Leeds called The Headrow. It has similar buildings. The tables outside the buildings would be perfect for a date :)

The links are below the front cover. The book is half price for a short while.

I mention a famous UK store in this story - Marks and Spencer's. They have a special place in my heart because the store originates from a market stall in Leeds Kirkgate Market in 1884. Here's an article about the company with some lovely images - Marks and Spencer

An afternoon tea is also mentioned. I have experienced this one at M & S and here is the photo :

And here are some more I've enjoyed!

Yes - those are crystal chandeliers!

A New Julia Blake Short Cozy Mystery

My new Julia Blake story is now available, and it's a short cozy mystery. Even though it's a short story, there's lots going on! In this story, Julia visits her son, Sam, at a university in Edinburgh. Of course, it's not long before she finds a dead body.
