On the few days summer dropped in on us here in the UK it was almost too hot to handle. Thankfully, my fellow IQ author, Clare Stevens, whose novel I mentioned in my last newsletter, found some shade at our pop-up bookstall in Sherwood on Saturday.
Read on for more East Midlands author talks and signing events on the horizon, plus some novel recommendations and an update on a revised back-of-the-book blurb.
I’m looking forward to meeting readers at WH Smiths stores in Newark and in Nottingham on September 21st and 28th respectively. I’ll also be taking my literary quiz to the fabulous Carriages Cafe in Newark on Friday, October 25th in the afternoon. Keep an eye on my events page for other possibilities in the pipeline.

Thanks to everyone who gave feedback on revising the blurb as my debut novel, Sugar and Snails, turns four. I do hope you’re happy with the revised version, which should be on the back of shiny new copies in the next couple of months.

At fifteen, she made a life-changing decision.
Thirty years on, it’s time to make another.

When Diana escaped her misfit childhood, she thought she’d chosen the easier path.
But the past lingers on, etched beneath her skin,
and life won’t be worth living if her secret gets out.

As an adult, she’s kept other people at a distance...
until Simon sweeps in on a cloud of promise and possibility.
But his work is taking him to Cairo, the city that transformed her life.
She’ll lose Simon if she doesn’t join him. She’ll lose herself if she does.
Sugar and Snails describes Diana’s unusual journey,
revealing the scars from her fight to be true to herself.
A triumphant mid-life coming-of-age story
about bridging the gap between who we are and who we feel we ought to be.


Did you know that substantially more books are translated from English than into English and that, of these, only a quarter are by female authors?
To help us find these hidden gems, August has been designated Women in Translation Month, and I’m sharing a few of my recent favourites on the IQ blog.

I'll be back with more book news in a few months' time.
