Writing News

EthelXcoatOr perhaps this should be entitled “puppy news”! Here is one of the major reasons I haven’t been as active online recently as I might have liked. Meet Ethel, our new sponsored Guide Dog Puppy! Ethel is 4 months old now, bright as a button and very cute. She has been keeping us all busy and enjoying her training. I’ll keep you posted on her progress!

Meanwhile here is some writing news (not as cute as puppies, I know!) I am totally thrilled that House of Shadows has hit the number 1 spot on Amazon’s Kindle UK Regency fiction chart and is riding high in other lists as well. You know how special this book is to me and to hear that people are enjoying it has been wonderful.

I am also extremely happy to report that House of Shadows will be coming out in the US in 2017! Watch this space for more details!

And finally, I am currently revising my next timeslip book which will be out in the autumn. The Phantom Tree is a Tudor and present day set historical mystery based on the true story of Mary Seymour, the daughter of Katherine Parr and Thomas Seymour.

Ashdown House, the setting for House of Shadows, opens today! I can’t wait to show our AshdownXwatercolourvisitors around. We are selling copies of House of Shadows, or bring your own, so that we can take and post up photos of readers with the book in the very place it’s set. Time Travel!

Love and thanks from Nicola xx
