Want a naughty gift at the last minute? Read this review

In case you’ve still got a couple of gifts to get for the Big Day next week, you might like to read this review of my dearly beloved book, Mischieverse … adult poems about many of the little things that p*ss us off from day to day.

The review is from Muddy Stillettos, a lively online women’s magazine in the UK.

The perfect book for the downstairs toilet…

The perfect stocking filler for the intelligent female in your life…

Wednesday is Halloween and if you are anywhere near west Northamptonshire (England) and want to share some spine-creeping stories in one of the spookiest locations you’ve ever seen the night before, on Oct 30th, read on. And if you’re thousands of miles away but love the horror genre, take a long hard look at this book. Details here.

Whatever you’re doing, have an utterly gruesome Halloween. Enjoy.

How to write better book marketing comms … When I started promoting my latest book, Mischieverse, a friend challenged me to write original verses to advertise it and accompany the silly photos I’ve been shooting of the book’s cover. Not being one to back off a challenge (and I love writing rhymes anyway), I got down to it.
