Happy Publication Day to me!
Today, the third instalment of the Beginner's Guide series has been released and I'm so pleased to share the next stage of Ruth's life with everyone. Ruth is such a fantastic character to write and I hope you enjoy her story as much as I enjoyed writing it - all seven drafts of it! As well as Ruth's story, you'll also get to know more about Quinn and Richard, who have featured in the other books, as well as meeting a a couple of new characters.
If you're a newsletter subscriber, you should receive an email this afternoon with a giveaway of a signed copy of the book. Remember, you can also buy signed copies of A Beginner's Guide To Family Life - plus a selection of my other books - from my online shop.
Over the next few weeks I'll be sharing 'Book Extras' here on the blog, including fun facts about the book, the playlist and a genre-swapping short story (which subscribers will get a first look at in the latest newsletter).
If you read the book, I really hope you enjoy it. If you do, I'd love it if you could leave a review on Amazon. Every one helps, even if it's just a sentence or two!
You can choose your friends, but you're pretty much stuck with your family.
Ruth has everything she never dared to hope for: a husband who adores her, a beautiful home, and a job she can just about tolerate. And now she's having a baby. But having zero experience with babies and a pregnancy that isn't quite as blooming as the magazines claim it should be, how will she cope with this stage of her life?
Quinn loves her family, but she sometimes wishes there weren't quite so many of them living under the same roof. But is she ready to fly the nest and build a whole new one with her boyfriend?
Richard's life is pretty great, until a visitor arrives on his doorstep and turns his whole world upside down.
A whole lot of drama.
