Sometime next week, Challenging Andie will be available everywhere in a paperback version, and I thought I'd share the paperback cover! I'm very excited about this, going self-published paperback is a new departure for me, and Challenging Andie will be followed by paperback versions of Bound to Love and Catch Me A Catch.
In early July, I have another new release, Love on the Vine will finally be available, so my next blog post will be all about that!
And to celebrate I'm having some giveaways!
Catch Me A Catch is going free on Amazon on 23 and 24 June - so do go and grab a copy, or if you've already got it, tell your friends!
And to launch Challenging Andie with a roar rather than a wimper, it will be going free as an ebook on Kindle on 25 and 26!
