New novel out today!

My new baby is out today (published by Thirst eDitions)! Long gestation, but that's (book) life.

And it's a girl (well, three girls); three very bad girls, in fact. It's available from Amazon now, at the weird price of £2.58 (but that's still a bargain. A small drink and a bag of crisps would probably cost you more, and not last nearly as long).

I am very bad at selling myself (ie my books), but please buy it! As it's on Kindle, I can't sell signed copies, but will have a cyber signing instead: my place, today. You can come in jeans if you like, and I'll provide lashings of cyber drink, plus smoked salmon and caviar for those who like it (I hate caviar. See? Aren't I generous?).

So do come, and please buy my book!

(I have tried, unsuccessfully, to provide an Amazon link. Probably my fault, but please don't let it deter you!)

  1. Congratulations!! In place of a gift for the newborn (or the mother), I am going to get the Kindle edition today. If you have remained true to the style I've so enjoyed in "Dead Ernest" and "The Bees...", it will certainly be worth the price - and you're right, that IS a bargain!

    1. Done! It is on my Kindle now but will have to wait until I finish the non-fiction book I have started to read during my lunch break today.

  2. This is me standing in line at Amazon to purchase your book for my Kindle.
    I will begin to read this afternoon...have morning chores to attend before I can open your new book.
    I enjoyed Dead Ernest and The Bees, etc., and am eagerly looking forward to Fallen Women.

    1. I hope you didn't have to stand for too long, Jill! And I hope it will prove worth the wait.

  3. Congratulations and thanks for the drinks! (I'm not a fan of caviar either)

    1. Thank you, Patsy. (Re caviar, I always feel a bit sorry for the sturgeon, having to die for the sake of its eggs.)

  4. Congratulations, Frances. Your new book looks fantastic. I'll really look forward to reading this. I loved Dead Ernest and The Birds, the Bees and Other Secrets, so I know I'm in for a real treat. x

  7. Well done. You should know that you have to push for all your worth to have a baby! I really enjoyed The Birds, The Bees etc, which I have as hard copy, so let me know if it comes out in book form.

  8. Alis H. has asked me to post this comment on her behalf, as blogger refuses to accept it from her!

    "Yes, everybody - read this book - it's fabulous! I read it months ago and the characters still feel like people I actually know. It'll be the best £2.58 you ever spent."

    Thanks so much, Alis.

    I hope you get lost of sales.
    All the best,
    John

  10. I have only read 'Dead Ernest' so far. I blogged about it because it made quite an impact on me. Now I have your other two books on my Kindle waiting for a reading opportunity.

  11. I loved your other books, Frances but I suffer from a serious case of Kindlephobia.
    Are you planning to bring this one out in paperback?

  12. I felt the same as you, Gail, until I was given one. I love it! But will always prefer proper books. I think there's a place for both.

  13. I've just read the preview on Kindle, Frances and I'm hooked (but of course knew I would be). Now to get my husband to buy it for "his" kindle (which he kindly lets me borrow). I hope you sell loads! :-) x
