New Book’s Title Will Be ‘After Wimbledon’

Thank you to everyone who voted in the poll and to Mark (one of my beta readers) who first suggested it.

On 1 October I’m starting on the next round of editing.  I’m waiting to hear back from one beta reader and another started late, but hopefully I will be done with that by the end of November and then the proofreaders will take over!

Want to be the First to Know When Your Favourite Authors Publish New Work on Amazon?

If you go to you can sign up for an email alert when an author publishes new work.  It doesn’t seem to be available on other sites, but books will usually come out on all sites simultaneously.

To sign up:

1. Log in to your account.  You can sign up just with your email and password if you use another site – you don’t need to input your payment details again.

2. Go to the author’s page (this may show up in a search for the author’s name – if not search for one of their books and click on their name instead of the title).

3. Look for the words ‘Stay Up To Date’ in orange at the top right of the page.

4. Under this is a link that says ‘E-mail me when there are new releases by [Author Name]’.  Click on that.

5. The link will be replaced by the words ‘You are now subscribed to new release e-mails for [Author Name]’ in green.  These emails will come to the email you log in with.

Please Comment on the Cover for My New Novel

The Deciding Set coverThis is the draft cover for my new book (using the working title – final title TBC).  I’d really appreciate thoughts on it.  Does it look like chick lit?  Would you recognise it as being by the same author as ‘The Dr Pepper Prophecies’?  Do you think you would like to read it?  Is there anything you would change?

Thank you!

Please Vote on the Title of My New Novel!

Those of you who read my blog on WordPress will have seen my ‘Current Project’ widget.  My second novel will be out Nov/Dec this year and I’m trying to decide on the title.

Draft Blurb:

After 12 years on the WTA professional tennis tour and four years with her sort-of boyfriend, Lucy Bennett has had enough.  She wants real life…and real love.  Little does she suspect that her plans will send a shock wave through her relationships – and some may never recover.

Such a big change doesn’t come easy for Lucy either, especially with pressure on all sides to keep going.  And there’s the small matter of the Wimbledon Championships to play – the tournament she’s dreamed of winning her whole life.

As if she didn’t have enough to think about, fate seems to be pushing her into the arms of fellow player Sam Pennington.  But he’s her boyfriend’s hated arch-rival and the changeover won’t be easy…


I’ve got several possibilities below for you to vote on (and please feel free to post comments on this and the blurb as well).  I’m trying to avoid anything that has already been used for a novel, hence why some obvious choices are missing.  If you have any other suggestions, please add them to the comments as well.

Thank you!
