Mid-Summer’s Day is just a few days away now and if you managed to catch the final part of my recent interview, then you would have heard my announcement regarding a very special event that I’m launching on this day.
Firstly though, can I say a huge thank you to all of you that have watched and enjoyed the interview, particularly those of you who have taken the time to contact me with your comments and questions. It’s been a pleasure to respond to every single one of you.
So, back to Mid-Summer’s Day. And as many of you will already know, on Saturday June 24th, I will be launching the serialisation of my latest novel There There My Dear. Beginning this Saturday, I will be publishing one Chapter each and every week up until Christmas, giving story lovers the opportunity to enjoy the first 26 chapters (about half the novel) free of charge.
Serialisation is not a new idea. Charles Dickens (The Pickwick Papers, etc), William Makepeace Thackeray (Vanity Fair), Wilkie Collins (The Woman In White) and Arthur Conan Doyle (Sherlock Holmes stories) were all renowned for serialising stories. And whilst I won’t claim to be the literary equivalent of any of these great writers, I can at least say that I’m doing something none of them did… serialising my book via my website!
There There My Dear has received terrific reviews. I’m extremely proud of it and very excited to be able to offer it to my readers and to book lovers around the world through this website.
I am also looking forward to readers getting to know the diverse, complex and intriguing characters within the story, and to hearing from as many of you as possible about how the book makes you feel. I’m currently writing the sequel, which makes this such a thrilling time to serialise and share this first book in the series.
There will be further announcements later this week, but please bookmark the website and follow me on Facebook… the adventure begins this Saturday!
Very best wishes,
