When I write these “coming up” posts, it’s usually because I’m desperately trying to get myself in some way organised for the month ahead. Things are wonderfully busy on Being Anne – so many authors responded to my offer (via Book Connectors) of some guest spots (to cover my return to full speed reading!) and I do hope you’ve enjoyed the ones I’ve shared in March as much as I have. There are lots more to come next month – and if you’re an author who missed my offer, there are still slots available that I’d be delighted for you to fill, just drop me an email.
So, what excitement does April have in store? I’ll take you through to Easter – and come back again then with more trailers to the end of the month.
This weekend it’ll be a real pleasure to welcome Ian Wilfred to Being Anne for an interview – Ian’s new book, The Little Terrace of Friendships, looks simply gorgeous and was published yesterday in paperback and for kindle.
Then I have a couple of lovely guests. On Tuesday 4th it’s one of my favourites, Caroline James, with a gorgeous post on her special places…
And on Wednesday 5th I’m looking forward to welcoming Elly Redding: her first novel, True Colours, was published last November, and she’ll be sharing five of the many things she learned along the way.
There’s another spotlight on Thursday 6th, this time as part of the blog tour for Lesley Cookman’s Murder on the Run, the seventeenth instalment in the hugely popular Libby Sarjeant murder mystery series. And on Friday 7th, I’ll be welcoming Dave Sivers as my guest, part of the blog tour for The Blood That Binds, published the previous day.
Over the weekend – from 8th to 10th April – I’m planning a special feature (with much welcome support from Virginia King), with a series of posts from authors involved in Book Group Gold, a great initiative (with free books!) that I’ll be telling you much more about.
I have a top secret new release for you on Tuesday 11th, with my review (ooh, I am so looking forward to this one!). On Wednesday 12th I’ll be welcoming Sue Hampton, author of Ravelled and Other Stories – and on Thursday 13th, release day, I’m looking forward to reviewing the new book by the excellent Rachael English, The American Girl. Just take a look at this gorgeous cover…
Friday 14th? It’ll be a feature on another gorgeous book from Elliott & Thompson – A Sweet Wild Note by Richard Smyth.
And I’m really hoping I can also squeeze in an interview or two, and another review here and there as I catch up on my reading pile… oh, it’s so lovely to be back!
P.S. For anyone wondering how my mum’s doing… she’s doing just fine. It’s so lovely to see her settling in her new home, and getting a whole new lease of life at 91. Her social life will soon be considerably better than mine – coffee mornings, first Tai Chi class last week, and yesterday she went old time dancing…
