East of England blog tour round-up

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”.

Check out the links above for the full reviews/posts. Huge thanks again to all who took part!

Juggernaut: out now in paperback and Kindle ebook

Finally released into the wild is Juggernaut, my sequel to Robert Louis Stevenson's [The] Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde!

It's out in paperback and in Kindle ebook from Amazon. 

Here's the back cover blurb: 

"A thrilling new sequel to Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.

1911. London is in limbo between two monarchs. Edward is dead and George not yet crowned. 

Ex-military doctor Toby Latimer is lately installed in private practice after Boer War service. His life is easy, his indolence assuaged by East End charitable work. 

Latimer is summoned to an irascible client. He finds he's been summoned to witness a will reading. The will is that of one Edward Hyde. 

And now, Latimer's life is anything but straightforward... 

Presented here as a chilling double-bill in one volume for the first time: Robert Louis Stevenson's [The] Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde together with Eamonn Martin Griffin's all-new continuation, Juggernaut."

So don't worry if you've not read the Robert Louis Stevenson original as that's included in the book as a bonus for you, though you don't need to have read it as homework before reading Juggernaut

If you're not a newsletter subscriber, please sign up here. There's a monthly email that comes from me; April's edition (sent out on the 1st of the month) will have information about a special Juggernaut-related gift just for subscribers.

Hope you enjoy Juggernaut! Let me know in comments below, or else in online reviews...
