No. 1 in the Historical Romance chart

I've topped the UK Historical Romance Charts today with The Earl & His Tiger!

Don't know how long I'll be lucky enough to hold onto the Number 1 spot, but many thanks to everyone who bought the book and left Likes and reviews. I couldn't have done ANY of it without your help.

It's also now within the Top 100 Kindle titles in the UK.

What more is there to say but WOOOOO!

I want to say a big noisy THANK YOU! to everyone who has bought my book The Earl and His Tiger, either from the UK Kindle site or the US Kindle site, because it seems people on both sides of the Atlantic have been hugely generous in doing so since its launch 3 weeks ago.

It's now heading towards the Top 100 Kindle titles in both stores!

Meanwhile, I'm off on a quick writing retreat again today, but should be back at the weekend. Either before then or next week, I hope to be featuring romance novelist Cathie Dunn on this blog.

I'm really excited by the prospect of having Cathie as my guest. We've been looking at each other's work for over a year now, and Cathie's help was absolutely vital in bringing The Earl and His Tiger up to scratch for publication day.

So a big THANK YOU! to Cathie Dunn today as well.

Cathie will be discussing Highland Arms, her new book from The Wild Rose Press, amongst other writerly things. Looking forward to it!

No. 2 in the Historical Romance chart!!

"WOW!" just about covers my reaction to this news.

My newest Regency romance, 'The Earl & His Tiger' has now sold over a thousand copies since its launch in mid-August, and is currently holding the NUMBER 2 slot in the Top 100 Historical Romances on

It's also within the Top 200 of ALL paid Kindle titles. How staggering is that?

Meanwhile, over on, it's at No. 13 in the Regency charts, No. 24 in Historicals and No. 27 in historical Romances.

I am so pleased by my lovely Tiger's success, I'm utterly over the moon. And I want to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who has bought a copy. You're all amazing!

I'm now planning my next Regency, and can only hope it will meet with the same approval from Kindle readers. And hoorah for self-publishing.
