Boot Camp Bride is about to celebrate its birthday and, before lockdown, I re-visited Norfolk and the sites which inspired the novel. I’d love to share them and take this opportunity to remind you of what a great romcom Boot Camp Bride is. Of all my novels I think that Boot Camp Bride is the one which would most easily translate onto the silver screen. To find out if you agree, I’m making Boot Camp Bride FREE to download over the weekend – so let your fingers do the walking and follow Charlie and Rafa’s adventures on the Norfolk Marshes.

An Interview with Margaret Kaine and Review of A Life of Secrets

Margaret has long been a supporter of New Romantics Press and we are happy to reblog this interview on our blog.

Bookish Jottings

Thank you so much for joining me here at Bookish Jottings, Margaret. It’s lovely to have you here. Could you please start by introducing yourself and by telling us something about the books you write?

Hello, Julie. Thank you for inviting me.

I am married with two grown up children and two wonderful grandchildren. And having three years ago, moved from Leicester down to Eastbourne on the south coast, I am loving the sound of seagulls and living near the sea.

My debut novel, Ring of Clay won the Romantic Novelists’ Association New Writer’s Award in 2002 and the Society of Authors’ Sagittarius Prize in 2003. Since then I have written six more novels set in the Potteries and published by Hodder & Stoughton. I then felt challenged to write on a more cosmopolitan landscape and wrote an Edwardian romantic suspense, ‘Dangerous Decisions’, published by Choc Lit. I am now…

Lizzie’s BEST EVER Summer Promo

News & Reviews

Always a pleasure to read Jan Brigden’s monthly blog posts. They’re warm-hearted and sincere, just like her two wonderful novels.

jan brigden, writer

With July jogging swiftly towards August ~ AUGUST ~ can’t quite believe I’m saying that, I wanted to check in and say Hi.

With restrictions easing since my last news update, it’s been wonderful to properly see Mum and Dad who’d been shielding and also the rest of my lovely family and friends in various homes, gardens and local parks. Can’t believe how much our great-nephews and niece have grown during this time, especially youngest Stanley who was only a month old when Lockdown started.

Henry, Thea & Stanley ~ always a joy to see their little faces ❤

Mr B is now back doing the day job but I’m glad to say Project Briggy is taking great shape. As well as Little & Large (sheds) as I’ve called them (everything has a name at Brigden Towers) he’s built some new decking on the sunnier side of the garden, with…

My Review Team’s Favourite Books

#RBRT Review Team

How time flies – Rosie Amber’s Book Review Team has now been up and running for six years!  During that time we have done our best to spread the word about novels, novellas, short stories and non-fiction from self-published authors and independent publishers – to showcase talent found outside the mainstream publishing world.

Each month we are inundated with review requests from authors and publishers alike.  Every book that I accept is passed on to my team of twenty readers, which is made up of book bloggers, writers, editors, creative writing tutors and people who just love reading.  Most gain just one or two reviews, but once in a while a gem comes along that piques the interest of several team members, and receives highly favourable reviews across the board.

Welcome to Part One of #RBRT Gold: seven extra-special books that were…

Inspirational Finds aka Searching for Mermaids by Adrienne Vaughan

#ThrowbackThursday ~ An Englishwoman’s Guide to The Cowboy #HistoricalFiction #Romance @june_kearns

Great to be reminded what a fabulous debut novel this was. Looking forward to June’s third one which she is working hard on ATM. With a bit of luck, Adrienne and I will have new ones out this summer, too.

ThrowbackThursday this week features a book I enjoyed very much. It was published in 2012.

My Thoughts

It’s the latter half of the nineteenth century and Annie Haddon is travelling across America in a stagecoach, corseted, with layers of petticoats and to make matters worse, wearing hat and gloves. The heat is stifling, not to mention the company. Her Aunt Bea and cousin Charlotte included. Annie didn’t even know why they were making a side trip to Texas when they were bound for New York. Not that Annie was in any hurry to reach New York, as the man her aunt intended to marry her off to awaited them. At twenty-seven Annie was considered almost beyond hope in the marriage stakes. A woman of her age who reads and holds her own opinions and especially one who is a cripple, had to take what she could get, according to her…

My 2020 guide for becoming a (successful) indie author –

Happy New Year to all our followers and fellow authors. Time for a retrospective as I hunker down to finish number six and get it out there before the summer’s over. I hope you enjoy reading my take on how self-publishing has worked for me.

Lizzie Lamb - author

I’m often asked about my route to publication. I thought I’d update some of that information and share with you as I head into 2020 and finish my 6th novels. I hope you find the blog post helpful and informative.
