Over the last two weeks, East of England’s been on a bit of a blog tour, and so it only makes sense to both thank all of those involved and to round up the various posts and reviews into a single posting. As you might imagine, it’s not easy for plucky underdogs like me to get reviews in the press, so every little helps, and that’s where the dedication of book bloggers comes into play.
So, thanks first and foremost both to my publishers Unbound and to book tour organiser extraordinaire Anne Cater. Thanks to each of the bloggers who took part too! In no particular order:
Cheryl MM - who said that East of England is “a clever tongue in cheek nod to the old gangster regimes, but with a small countryside flair to it”.
Novel DeeLights - who hosted a guest post by me; “10 Things You Didn’t Know About Me”.
Hayley’s Book Blog - Hayley reckoned that East of England was “near impossible to put down”.
Reflections Of A Reader - who said the book was “great” as well as “dark and brutal”.
Don Jimmy Reviews - who was good enough to host an excerpt from the novel.
Beady Jan’s Books - Jan was kind enough to host a second guest blog post from me, this time on writer characters in movies.
Over The Rainbow Book Blog - who said that East of England was a “gritty, gripping read”.
Anne Cater’s own Random Things Through My Letter Box - Anne kindly hosted a second excerpt from the novel.
The Writing Garnet - who said that East of England was “an impressive roller coaster ride of a novel that left me breathless”.
