Thanks to Bookbub and the advert I placed with them weeks ago, Daffodils hit the No 1 position in the UK and No 2 in the US for overall free books. I was stunned when I found out on the 8th September in a snatched internet moment at a cafe. I\’m abroad in France at the moment so didn\’t even witness this awesome event in my career but I\’m still as chuffed as could be.
Daffodils is still free so grab a copy. Pleased to report lots of reviews have also come through with many readers going on to read the rest of the series.
I\’m currently working on The Rose Trail, which isn\’t connected to The Katherine Wheel Series, but I still plan to write the fourth and final book in Katy and Jem\’s story next year, if I can get all the massive amount of research completed by then. Woodbine and Ivy will complete their story and bring a conclusion that I hope will satisfy all the questions I\’ve deliberately left unanswered in Peace Lily and Speedwell.
Thanks to all the 50,000 people who have downloaded Daffodils this week. I hope that each and every one of you will enjoy the story and come back for more.
Here\’s some of the new reviews of Daffodils that have gladdened my heart:
A delightful read
, 12 Sept. 2016
\”5 *s This was an enchanting story full of love and adventure. It started before the first world war, when everyone knew their place in the scheme of things, although not everyone was happy with their place, then it covered the horrible war and the death and destruction and the firm friendships made during this war. I was really sorry when I finished the book. I shall buy the next two in the series as I enjoyed this book so much!\”
\”Thoroughly enjoyable read that bought home some of the realties of WW1 from a woman\’s point of view. Although there is a romantic thread this book is head and shoulders above the usual offerings in the genre. It bought to mind the photographs I\’ve seen of my grandmother and other members of family in WW1 uniform and gave some meaning to little WW1 keepsakes I inherited. I look forward to reading other books in the series.\”
\”I\’ve rated this book 5 star because I only had to neglect my housework for 2.5 days. The story is so real life with authentic characters and gripping struggles that made it difficult to set the book down. I will recommend it to my Book Club this month. I can\’t wait to read the next two books in this series!\”
