The Lucky Diamond received a glowing review from the UK Book recommendation site LoveReading4Kids earning a ‘Indie Books We Love’ badge.
Read the review here:
Last week I took over Iseult Murphy’s blog for a few days.
On Thursday, Iseult interviewed me (my first interview as an author!). I had great fun answering her questions, you can read the interview here
On Friday I wrote a guest article for Iseult’s blog.
My first article published on writing. I looked at some of the elements of The Lucky Diamond and pondered where the inspiration had come from. It’s something I hadn’t previously considered, so it was fun to contemplate. You can read the article here.
TOTP tried his best to promote The Lucky Diamond – very unsuccessfully! If you read his tweets, don’t mind him – he got his run, his dinner, and lots of chicken!
The Lucky Diamond will soon be found in a bookshop and on library shelves – the book got a lot of interest in the real world and I hope to make an announcement very soon!
My beautiful cover was animated by Wayne Feldon – unfortunately I can’t upload it here at the moment for some reason, but it looks amazing, and I was thrilled Wayne kindly made it for me, unasked!
Thank you to everyone who bought The Lucky Diamond this past week, who read it in Kindle Unlimited, who shared my posts and tweets and generally encouraged and supported me on this journey. I am truly grateful.
If you have read the book, I would be super grateful if you would leave a review on Amazon or Good Reads, even a brief one would be gratefully received. I’d love to hear what you thought, and it would help other readers find the book.
