TRADER shortlisted for Author’s Club Best First Novel Award

‘Fiendish twists, harrowing ordeals, troubled upbringings, tough choices, heartlifting epiphanies and irrepressible humour – this year’s Author’s Club Best First Novel shortlist has all this and more…’

It also has THE TRADER OF SAIGON! Amazing!

I’ll be reading from my novel at Gower Street Waterstones alongside the other shortlisted authors on 29th May 2014 and details will follow, but I’d really love to see you all there!

You can find out more about the Author’s Club and the other shortlisted authors on their website, here. You can read the first three chapters of TRADER on my website here, and also buy the novel here for the bargain price of 98p. Lucky devils!

The winner will be announced on June 3rd. Thanks as ever for all your support.

The Trader of Saigon is now out in paperback

This week saw the release of the paperback version of TRADER, so it was great to pop into Waterstones this rainy afternoon and see her looking all smart and shiny and proud on a shelf! To celebrate, I’ll be featuring lots of paperbacky news, interviews, reviews and maybe even a cheeky giveaway or two on my Facebook site and on Twitter, so do drop by and say hello! Would be lovely to see you…
