Trickster is now available in paperback and audio.
Really enjoyed listening to the free audio sample on Amazon. The narrator brought my characters to life!

The 2 week book blog tour has come to an end - it's been wonderful! Some of the reviews for Trickster had me in tears... But they were tears of happiness!
I'm sure the tour helped push Trickster up the charts. It's currently sitting in the top 500 on Amazon UK, yay!
The follow up book, Rivals, is with my editor so now I'm about to start writing book 3. No peace for the wicked 😀

It's been a whole week since Trickster was released, and wow, what a week!
It's held steady on Amazon in the top 1000 and the reviews on Goodreads have far exceeded anything I could have expected.
I can say with confidence, if you enjoy a fast-paced historical ganglit saga, download Trickster for 99p or $1.28... From what I've seen from readers, you won't be disappointed!

Trickster is out there now in the big wide world!
Published yesterday, I've had a whirl-wind couple of days... The book blog tour has also started - and I'm over the moon with the fabulous reviews that have been coming in!
It's always nerve-racking waiting to find out what readers think about your book but I've been blown away with everyone's wonderful praise 😍

Well, it's less than a week to go before my debut novel hits the Ebook shelves!
Considering I'm now officially a published author, I'm struggling to find the words to describe my excitement... Except it's past 3 in the morning and I'm still wide awake - blimey, if I carry on like this all week, I'll be like the walking dead by the time Trickster is released!

Absolutely loved this book!
A saga set in London during the 50s and 60s.
I was hooked from the first page and found myself getting totally absorbed in young Sarah's life. The story had me in tears as there's a very sad moment. But thankfully, it had an happy ending.
Would definitely recommend!

Raid Over Berlin | John Martin

An incredible true story of a POW during World War 2
This isn't the sort of book I normally read, but I saw the chap being interviewed on The One Show. I found his story moving so I bought the book.
Truly inspiring! It had me in tears at times but in awe of what some people went through during the war.
I'm so glad that these memories have been captured for us all to share.

Sammichaels Sorry, @kaye if I'm being dumb, but what does NF mean? 12mo
Kaye Nonfiction. I‘ve been giving NF books a gold star since I like reading them. 😊 12mo
Sammichaels @kaye lol, I was being dumb! Thanks for the explanation. This book isn't the best written of books but the story is amazing and very touching 😘 12mo
Kaye Glad you like it , at least in a way. Some NF writers are better than others. Have a great day. 😊 12mo

Hey Litsy friends!
This is my debut novel, Trickster, published by Aria Fiction.
It's due for release in April and as a new author, I'd really appreciate your support and feedback.
The book is a gangland saga set in London and begins on the day WW1 breaks out. It's the first in a series of 5 books featuring Georgina Garrett.
Yes, I've given it a Pick on here but I do believe it's a really good story!
Thank you in advance xx

I'm a huge Kitty Neale fan and this book did not disappoint!
Kitty's gritty family sagas are set in Post ww2 London.
This story follows a mother's struggles as she is faced with an impossible situation. I was gripped from the first page!
Heartbreaking and moving with a surprise ending that I didn't see coming.
Loved it and so did Axl, my big puppy!

DGRachel What a cute photo!! Bailey just gives me side-eye when I try to use her as a book photo prop. 😂😂 12mo

A Daughters Courage | Kitty Neale

A family saga telling of love, hate and loss.
Beautifully written, set in 1950s London, this story had me deeply involved with the characters and their lives. They say love is blind, which is certainly true for Dottie. I found myself rooting for her, willing her to see what Robbie is really like.
A real page turner!
