I hope you’re managing to stay home, safe and sane in these strange times.

I know not everyone has extra hours to fill, and not everyone wants to spend them reading but, if you do, I have some recommendations.



I hope you enjoyed the stories in my e-book Somebody’s Daughter. If you had any difficulties downloading your copy, let me know by replying to this email and I’ll send you a copy in whatever format you require.

Getting books
when libraries and bookshops are closed

 
For print:
Many independent bookshops are taking orders by email and will deliver books from stock.
If you prefer to order online, do consider using the retailers that support independent bookshops, such as Hive (UK), Indiebound (US) and Bookshop (US).
Many small independent publishers are selling books directly from their websites.
For ebooks:
Most libraries have an extensive catalogue of ebooks available for loan.
Some small independent publishers – including my publisher, Inspired Quill -- also supply ebooks (and need our support to keep going).

Literary fiction for facing, fleeing or forgetting the virus:

 

  • Novels about confinement and pandemics
  • Novels to escape into
  • The nature cure

Genre diversity from my publisher, Inspired Quill:

  • Fantasy for ages 13 to adult
  • Dystopian fiction
  • Uplifting tales of triumph over adversity
  • Short stories
  • Writing exercises
  • A depression diary
Please consider forwarding this newsletter to anyone you think might enjoy these genres. Even as a non-profit, my lovely publisher – on lockdown in Madrid – is struggling financially in these straitened times.
If you’d rather listen than read yourself, I’ve recorded a new video:
"In Search of Mr Right" is a light-hearted story about a midlife crisis, featuring estate agents, a record shop and a Roger Daltrey lookalike, from my 2018 short story collection on the theme of identity, Becoming Someone

Update on my next novel

 
Matilda Windsor Is Coming Home is still on target for publication in May next year and I already have a draft of the cover, which I’m bursting to share. I’m aiming to run the first of three competitions to win a signed copy in my next newsletter during Mental Health Awareness Week next month. I’ll be asking for your help in choosing a name for the fictional hospital in which the story is set, with the chance to win a signed copy if your suggestion is selected.
If you want some advice on finding a novel on a particular theme
or in a specific location, just ask.
 

Stay safe and see you next time!
