The Christmas Cupid is out now and I thought I'd share my writing process through the pics I posted on Instagram
Getting ready to start the book:
Post-it note progress:
Fuelled by tea:
Mentioned Agatha Christie's festive book, Hercule Poirot's Christmas. Had to buy myself a copy:
More post-it note progress:
Fast-forward 2 years:
My two-book deal was announced, including The Christmas Cupid.
Ebook and audio Publication Day arrived...
... with gorgeous flowers from my publisher
The paperback wasn't out until 8th December, but I had a surprise box delivered on ebook publication day!
After 13 books, I finally got an orange bestseller flag on Amazon:
The book was partly inspired by my local town's annual reindeer parade, so I had to take a copy along for a photo with the star of the parade:
And I also took along a few extra copies to leave around town.
I numbered the copies 1-6 in a heart (if you've read the book you'll get the reference) and left a message inside:
'This is one of 6 copies of The Christmas Cupid left out during the 2022 Oldham Reindeer Parade. I hope you enjoy Zoey's story :)'
I felt like a Christmas elf as I dropped the books off around town, hoping whoever found them would enjoy the story
And then it was paperback publication day so I ran a celebratory giveaway for my newsletter subscribers!
