The Sword and the Rose 80KB

I have received an email today from Secret Cravings Publishing letting me know that The Sword and the Rose is now available in print… How good is that?

I had been told it would be available in October, but they have made my day and I have ordered and paid for my very first copy. It should arrive on my birthday – what a fabulous present!!

It’s available on Create space but will also be available on Amazon by the end of next week.

The link for the book on Create space is:


This is so exciting!!!




Beneath Southern Stars … Never forgotten

Beneath Southern Stars
I realised today that as much as I have been doing a “song and dance” about my two most recent novels published through Secret Cravings Publishing, I have totally ignored my first book.
Let’s face it if I hadn’t written that first book I would never have been inspired to write the other two, nor the one I’m writing at present.
So feeling a little bit guilty at neglecting my first “baby” I decided to show her off again.

I have therefore created a coupon special price on Smashwords which is effective from today until 3rd August 2014. This seems fitting because it was on 3rd August 2012 that the novel Beneath Southern Stars was first published.
I therefore invite my followers and friends to visit the Smashwords link below and take advantage of the coupon reference code: ZQ64K prior to checkout and get the book for 50% off. :

Barnes & Noble:


For some unknown reason however both Amazon and Barnes & Noble have uploaded the book with the wrong title.  They are showing it as “Embracing Amidst Orange Blossoms” instead of the correct title: “Embrace Amidst Orange Blossoms”.

I have written to the publisher about it. Not too sure if they can get them to fix it on their sites.

Also, it is interesting to note that even though the publisher has set the price as $2.99, which is what the publishers, Smashwords and Barnes & Noble are selling it for, Amazon is selling it for $3.99.

If anyone does read it, I truly would be grateful if you are able to review it. I would be so interested in getting feedback from readers.

Thanks and regards,
