Living with Postcards is my only non-fiction book out of the dozen books I’ve written. It’s packed with colour illustrations and describes my close relationship with old postcards. Each card illustrated in the book is from my own large collection. I’ve collected over 2,000 of these charming, quirky, historical items since the 1970s. I gave a talk to Full Circle members at Oldham Coliseum about Living with Postcards in January 2017. Living with Postcards is a beautiful present from the past that anyone can enjoy. It is available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle editions and is always free to Kindle Unlimited subscribers.
“The author shares her impressive knowledge of vintage postcards in an entertaining and informative style. Brimming with lovely reproductions, it’s never dull. A book to read from cover to cover or just dip into. Certainly, a book to revisit. Living with Postcards makes an imaginative present, even to someone like me who has no particular interest in postcard collecting. I can thoroughly recommend it.”

Here are four of my latest Goodreads Giveaways. For the past couple of years, I’ve been offering a few of my paperbacks each month as Goodreads Giveaways. All readers need to do is enter the Giveaway to have a chance of winning a copy. I’ve written twelve books, so there’s always something different for you to select. I used to limit the entry solely to readers in Great Britain, but recently I’ve been offering Americans, Canadians, and Australians a chance to win one of my paperbacks, as well as Brits.
I only added my Living with Postcards paperback Giveaway today, so it’s showing on here as non-verified, but Goodreads will verify it in a day or two. This book, in particular, looks so much better in paperback than as a Kindle edition because it’s packed with full-colour illustrations of many of my postcards from my large collection. I’ve been collecting mostly fantasy, comic and novelty postcards since the 1970s and own over 2,000 of these beautiful, quirky, historical items. Living with Postcards is my only non-fiction book. My other eleven books are fiction. They are a mix of crime thrillers, paranormal, short stories, novels, and memoirs.
I’m currently enjoying writing books 13 and 14 simultaneously. One is another crime thriller, whose title I’m keeping under wraps. The other is book 5 of The Hostile series of paranormal crime thrillers.
If you enter any of my Goodreads Giveaways, Good luck! I hope you win.
Kindle editions of my nine, soon to be ten, books on Amazon are now only £0.99 each, or equivalent currencies. They’re always free to Kindle Unlimited subscribers. The paperback versions of my books won’t break the bank either. If you enjoy audiobooks, two of my books, The Hostile and Her demonic Angel, are available on Amazon, Audible, and iTunes as audiobooks.
My tenth book, The Hostile Game, should be published on Amazon in Kindle and paperback by the end of April. It’s the third book in The Hostile paranormal thriller series. I’m currently writing book four in the same series. If anyone would like to join my Facebook Hostile series launch team, where you can download MOBI or PDF files of all books in The Hostile series for free, I’d love to have you on board https://www.facebook.com/groups/1694776034176904/

My meet-the-author event at Oldham Coliseum on 24th January went even better than I’d hoped. There were about fifteen Full Circle members in the audience, which was a perfect number, as I wanted my talk to be informal. I was less nervous than I’d expected to be, probably because I’m passionate about writing and talk about books every chance I get. Selling a few of my signed books was a bonus.
Most of the photographs were taken by Jenny, one of the organisers, shortly after my hour-long talk. I gave my talk next to the small table but sat with the audience for the group photos. I notice I’m wearing the same outfit I wore for another meet-the-author event at Oldham Library in November. I really must wear something different if I’m ever asked to give another talk about my books. People will think I only own one set of clothes, which is far from the truth.
Thanks to Rose Sergent at Oldham Coliseum for organising today’s event. I really enjoyed myself and would happily have talked for two hours, not just the one hour I’d been allocated. It’s now back to writing book ten for me, the third book in The Hostile series.The Hostile series.
Looking forward to speaking for an hour or so at my meet-the-author event at Oldham Coliseum tomorrow. I hope my voice holds out for that long, as I don’t use it very often. I’ve thoroughly prepared my speech and am not too nervous … yet. I’ll be the only author talking at tomorrow’s event, as far as I’m aware.
My talk will be about my nine books and life as a full-time indie author, although I’ll be concentrating on my non-fiction book, Living with Postcards, as the organiser requested. I’m bringing about 50 of my 2,000 postcards along to illustrate the talk. I could have put together a powerpoint presentation, but I reckon holding the actual postcards will be more satisfying for the audience, and feel less formal. I’ll be handing out my own book promotion postcards too, whether the audience wants them or not, ha! They can turn them into paper airplanes and launch them at me if they get bored.
This’ll be the second meet-the-author event I’ve spoken at in the past six months. Maybe that’s why I’m not too nervous, although my first talk was only 15 minutes long, and there were four other authors speaking then. Wish me luck.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all from me and my books. http://amzn.to/2hWdfmm.
