Coming up in September on Being Anne…

By | August 31, 2016

Where did August go? Yes, it’s that time again, when I tell you all about my blog tours, features and planned reviews for the month ahead – then come back towards the end of the month with lots of excuses about what I just couldn’t quite manage! I actually didn’t do too badly in August though – just three of my planned reads slipped a little and will be coming up in September instead. That’s First Lie by Virginia King, The Family Line by Laura Wilkinson and For The Love Of Emily by Joy Wood. I’ll be reviewing two books I’ve thoroughly enjoyed – Cold Calling by Russell Mardell, and Hostile Witness by Nell Peters – in the next couple of days.


Let’s have a quick canter through my diary!  Tomorrow I’m first stop on the blog tour for A Perfect Square by Isobel Blackthorn, with a wonderful guest post about mother-daughter collaboration.


On Friday 2nd I’m delighted to welcome Karen King telling us all about the three romance novels she has published through Accent press. Then on Thursday 8th September I’m delighted to be joining the blog tour for The Secret Wife by Gill Paul with a review and gorgeous guest post. I’m so looking forward to this one – the early reviews are simply wonderful, and I’m really excited that I’ll be at the launch party the night before the review appears.

Blog tour-5

On Friday 9th I’ll be welcoming Carol Cooper – we’ll be having a chat, and I’ll be reviewing Hampstead Fever.


Then on Monday 12th September I’m joining the blog hop for They All Fall Down by Cat Hogan: I’ll be reviewing the book, plus a guest post from Cat, and really looking forward to it.


Fitting in all the reading this month was a bit too much of a challenge, but I do have a couple of great promotions in conjunction with Brook Cottage BooksChances Are by Wendy Lou Jones on Tuesday 13th,  and The Magic of Ramblings by Kate Field on Thursday 15th.


On Wednesday 14th I’ll be talking with Kate Braithwaite, author of Charlatan – and I’ll have a guest review to go with it (thanks Louise Wykes!).

My next blog tour – a guest post this time – will be for Andy Blackman’s For The Love Of Grace on Monday 19th, followed by The Mistakes We Make by Jenny Harper (a review this time) on Tuesday 20th.

On Tuesday 27th I’ll have a blog tour guest post from Abigail Osborne, author of The Puppet Master, released yesterday.


The month closes with a few more tours. On Wednesday 28th I’ll be welcoming Juliet Greenwood and her new release The White Camellia (I SO wanted to read this one, but just couldn’t fit it in…), and reviewing Dark Water by Sara Bailey (really looking forward to this one!). And on Friday 30th I’ll be bringing you an extract from A Nice Day For A White Wedding by Andi Michael.

Lots of spaces still to fill with reviews and features – these are the other books I’m really hoping to get to this month.


And I’m really hoping to read – or at least make a start on – two sets of books I’ve been wanting to get to for a while…the first from Judith Barrow…


And the other from Jan Ruth…


I do have a little bit of beta reading to fit in this month (no, of course I won’t tell you about it!) and two further books not-for-the-blog. And there are parties too! The launch of Sarah Ward’s A Deadly Thaw tonight, Gill Paul’s party on Thursday 8th, the London launch of Louise Beech’s The Mountain in my Shoe AND Crime in the Court on Thursday 22nd, and a blogger/author meet-up in London on Saturday 25th.  And as if that all wasn’t enough, I also have a Skype call with the lovely Sarah Jasmon – author of The Summer of Secrets – as part of my U3A Book Group on Tuesday 20th.

I’d better be getting on with it all, hadn’t I?
