Spreading the word - Jo Carroll

I send out a tweet this month, inviting my twitter follower sto come on over to my blog and tell me about their books. In true tweet spirit, I wanted to know more, and to share the information with everyone, to help get the word about my followers books out there!

So here's the first one - drumroll - Jo Carroll, and details of her book, Over the Hill and Far Away.

Over the Hill and Far Away - One Grown-up Gap Year, by Jo Carroll

There must be something between the retirement party and buying a zimmer frame. JO CARROLL decided this was the time to revive her teenage dreams and go round the world. So she packed her rucksack, a round-the-world ticket, and a notebook. Not prepared, then, for being marooned on a beach in Australia with the tide rising and nothing but cliffs behind her; nor negotiating with a gunman who wanted to marry her in Lucknow. Let’s not think about the snakes and leeches in the jungles of Malaysia.

But could anything have prepared her for the drama that brought her home? Nor the kindness of strangers who kept her safe at that moment when she was least able to do it for herself.

Jo's book is available now on Amazon, here's the UK link
And also at here

You can find out more at her blog - which is here
And she's @jomcarroll on twitter!

Congratulations on your launch, Jo! And I wish you lots and lots of great reviews and sales!


  1. Sally - how very kind.

    This all feels a bit surreal at the moment. But it's blogposts like your that make me realise it's really happening.

    (And there will be a 'real book' version before long, so I'm not forgetting those of us who still treasure real books.)
