A Big, Big Thank You to Two Alex Readers

Recently a couple of my readers, Ida and Lilly, emailed in to point out something I had forgotten to include at the back of Alex: Reading Group Questions. And they were absolutely right – I had forgotten all about writing them. (Working on my new novel and looking after my visiting in-laws at the moment is proving to be quite the juggling act!)

Ida and Lilly expressed that the novel should contain a Reading Group Questions section – which I of course, being a mere mortal, found ridiculously flattering. Seriously, it made my day. In the email, I then discovered they had included a number of questions they were going to use at a Reading Group they run, and that they wanted to know my thoughts. This made my week!

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you all enjoyed the holidays, festivities, and are looking forward to the year ahead as I am.

To get things started, here’s a bit of good news for any readers who haven’t yet read Alex.

For a long time now I’ve been distributing through one channel: Amazon. But after receiving a fair few emails from readers wanting to know why I was only offering Alex solely through this provider (I’m extremely flattered by the way!), I suddenly realised that maybe it was time I branched out a little.

A Good Start to the Day for Alex

After knocking back a cup of coffee this morning to kick-start my motor, I made my way to my usual 6:30am haunt: the study. After firing up my laptop and guzzling down the last lonely biscuit from the pack, I was pleasantly surprised to see that Alex was ranked at #84 in the UK Kindle Thriller chart, and was ranked at #94 in the Mystery chart too.
