I’m thrilled to tell you that my historical crime novel, Baby up the Chimney, is in Kobo’s long weekend sale. The sale starts today and finishes on the 15th February (next Monday). Right now UK, Canada and US-based readers can grab the ebook for 0.99. That’s a whopping amount (about 75%) off the usual price of the e-book.
I hadn’t realised that this weekend’s sale would also include UK readers as well as Canadian and US readers, so if you’re in the UK, do please feel free to take up the opportunity to grab a copy at this rock-bottom price while you’ve got the chance! If you’re not a Kobo reader, however, read on because I have a “tester” freebie for you.
In case you’ve never come across Baby up the Chimney, it is very much a cross-genre novel, combining mid-twentieth century setting with the secrets, lies and betrayals of a family, and crimes that cannot be forgotten, or forgiven. And for one family member in particular, crimes that have to be avenged before it is too late.
One day. That’s all it takes for four lives to be changed forever.
London, 6th March 1971. Women pour into London to take to the streets in solidarity for equal pay and equal rights. But while public spectacle and a friendly call to arms pervades the day, in private, one family is about to find that everything they thought was the truth about their loved ones has the potential to blow their world apart. And one man, back from the dead, has unfinished business with them…
A novel of dark secrets, lies, betrayal and vengeance, in which the shadows of history, haunting memories and the truths they dare not tell come back to try and destroy them.
When the truth is not what you thought it was, do you ignore it? Do you try to rewrite history to protect those you love? Or do you seek revenge?
You can find the book on Kobo here – this takes you to the sale page (if you’re in the UK, Canada or US, and also to the ordinary Kobo page if you’re elsewhere, or you’re coming across this after the sale has finished). Alternatively, you can download the sample chapters of Baby up the Chimney here. This sample is much, much longer than any freebie sample that you get on some of the online retailers, so you can get your teeth into a good chunk of the book. Remember, too, that you can always request the book for your local library.
If you do choose to buy Baby up the Chimney in the Kobo sale, then I thank you very, very much indeed. And if you choose to download your taster file, then thank you for that, too. All these things that you, as readers, do to help me are really appreciated. For my part, I will continue to write stories for you that you love. If you know someone who might like a 0.99 copy, or the taster, do please share this post and/or links with them. The more the merrier!
