New novel, new novel, new novel...


Some time ago, I wrote a mad romp of a novel*, but it was so off-the-wall that I stuck it in the famous cyber drawer and forgot about it. But more recently, I dug it out and  sent it to a writer friend, and she absolutely loved it. So does my publisher. It comes out for the first time on pre-order soon, and I'm really excited about it.

As I've said before, I hate, hate, hate self-promotion, and I'm terrible at it. I've only told one or two of my friends about this novel. But here on my blog I feel I can say, please give it a try when it comes out. It will be only 99p on pre-order on Kindle (August in paperback), and I'd love it if you would buy it. Please?

And if you don't buy it, thank you anyway for reading this.

* Original title: The Virgin of the Hen House (hence the chickens), but I was firmly persuaded that that was a bad idea. I think they were right.

    3. Bloody hell Frances, you need an agent or a carer. Pop a link in your blog post to the page in Amazon. It is easier than me using HTML code to pop links in comments. Spesshally now the coders are gowing HTML5 And what used to be a B for bold letters is now STRONG. Why is strong an improovment on a Buh at both ends of wot I want to typ in thik?
      Yew will still get a review saying it's the best thing I've read this year. It is enuff to drive a man sp eshall kneeds is this skipting biziness.

    4. You're very sweet, Adrian, but I can't put a link in until the books is up on Amazon, which I'm told should be Monday. (That is, if I understood a fifth of your comment!)

  5. Of course I'll be joining the queue despite my loathing of the term pre-order which is a complete nonsense.

    1. You're quite right about that word, Graham, but I'm stuck with it! But it does mean the book isn't out yet...thank you very much in advance for your support.

  8. I'll keep a lookout. I have to buy my Kindle books from the US/international but as your other books found their way there I suppose this one will as well. (Don't hesitate to announce again on your blog when it's actually available.)
