I have signed with a new agent!
I am delighted to let you all now that I have signed with a new agent, the wonderful Nicky Lovick at WGM Atlantic.
Nicky has over twenty years editorial experience and this signing means that I should be able to have my latest book with you very soon...I'm biased, but this new novel is my favourite so far and I cannot wait to share it with you.
Book signing in Cornwall.
I'm back in Mevagissey and this year I won't be signing my books alone! I'm going to be joined by five author friends and we're all going to be there signing our books together.
Six for the price of one...now that's a win!
So, if you're in and around Mevagissey and fancy dropping by to say hello and chat all things books to me, Cass Grafton, Eva Glyn, Kate Ryder, Mandy James and Lamorna Ireland then Sunday 1st October is the day to do it. We'll be in Hurley Books from 2pm - 4pm and cannot wait to see you all.
A brand new PRIZE DRAW especially for December.
I am so excited to share the details of my Prize Draw. I have collected all my favourite things for my perfect evening in - bubble bath, chocolate and a teeny bottle of Prosecco - and you can win them all along with a signed and dedicated copy of my latest Christmassy romance, Every Day In December.
Entry is ever so simple, I’m going to be posting my Every Day In December advent calendar all over social media, a different post for each day, and everyone who shares/reposts/retweets it will be given one entry onto the draw. So there are lots of chances to get your name in the draw, lots of times.
And subscribers to my newsletter - you can sign up on my home page - will also have an extra entry.
The draw will be done on New Years Eve and I shall contact the winner straight away.
Wishing you all lots of luck! Kitty xx
Every Day In December in is ASDA!
I am so excited to be able to say that my latest novel, Every Day In December is now stocked in Asda.
Having a book in the supermarkets is a writer's dream and I have lost count of the amount of time I have spent in front of the bookshelves in shops dreaming that I may see one of my books there. And now it's happened!
It's going to be stocked in 123 of their stores so I am going to ask you to keep your eyes peeled, simply because I don't know which stores they are going to be. So, if you spot one out and about, will you let me know?
And here is a pic of me, absolutely beaming - behind the mask - that my book is up there on those shelves with all the absolute Queens of Romance. It really does feel incredibly special and I shall remember this day forever.
HURLEY BOOKS in MEVAGISSEY on Saturday 25th September at 2pm.
I am so thrilled to be going back to Cornwall to do a book signing at Hurley Books in Mevagissey to celebrate the release of Every Day In December.
I'll be there with a pen and a smile from 2pm and would love to chat to as many of you as possible, so do come along and say hello.
THE GREENBANK PUB in BRISTOL at 7.30pm on Friday 3rd September.
I haven't had a publication day party for a little while. So with the paperback of Every Day In December being released on the 2nd September, I have decided to hire a room, pop some money behind the bar and strap my dancing shoes on the very next day.
I am throwing the doors open, so feel free to come and join me in a drink.
If you live close by and would like to know more - come and find me on social media and send me a message.
Otherwise just turn up, say hello and we'll have a dance!
Every Day In December
One More Chapter have just revealed my brand new cover so I thought I would share it here with you.
Every Day In December is my very first standalone novel and I am so excited to be able to talk about it. I have LOVED writing about Belle and Rory.
I shall pop the blurb below for now but will be building a page so I can tell you all about it in full. It is already up on Netgalley and available for preorder in all the usual places.
Two people. One month to fall in love.
Belle Wilde loves December. Yes, she’s just lost her job and Christmas is not a good time to find yourself ‘financially challenged’. And yes, her parents are still going on about the fact that she really should have it all together by now. But Belle believes that in December, magic can happen.
Rory Walters hates December. Whilst it looks like his life is together, he’s still reeling from a winter’s night five years ago when his life changed forever. Now back at home, he’s certain that this will be yet another Christmas to endure rather than enjoy.
But as midnight on December 31st draws closer, Belle and Rory’s time together is coming to an end. With a little help from a Christmas miracle could Belle find the one thing she really wants underneath the mistletoe?
I have a brand new publisher!
July 5th 2021
I am so excited to be able to finally tell you this. I have a brand new publisher. Back in 2019 I signed with One More Chapter, a Harper Collins imprint, and am writing two new standalone romantic comedies for them. Both the books are based in Bristol and the first one will be out very soon indeed. But I shall tell you more about that tomorrow when I have my official cover reveal.
I am loving working with One More Chapter. It really is the most supportive bookish family and heaps of my friends are there.
And today I am allowed to shout about it to the world because both The Bookseller and BookBrunch ran articles all about it.
I read The Bookseller's daily round-up every morning before I start my day so to see my own face there was an amazing feeling. I've popped the link below if you want to check it out. They do say some rather nice things!
Books For Vaccines is a volunteer-run charity auction to raise money for Care International, who in turn are raising funds to help vaccinate the world against the COVID-19 pandemic.
So many people in publishing are offering the most amazing lots, from books bundles and signed copies to mentoring, editorial critiques, one-to-ones with agents. If you are an aspiring author or just a book geek in general, there are so many hard-to-come-by opportunities right here!
The auction will be live from May 7th to May 21st, 2021.
I'm offering a signed book bundle that you can find below, but honestly I urge you to have a look at all the lots, there really are some amazing things on offer.
February 14th 2021
I am ever so excited to be part of a Book Chat hosted by Staffordshire Libraries as part of their Valentine's Day celebrations.
I'll be part of a panel alongside authors Elaine Everest, Kim Nash and Linda Tyler and we will be talking all about our books and our love of writing.
It's ever so easy to come along, it's absolutely free and you can join us from the comfort of your own home. Simply sign up on Facebook for the Staffordshire Libraries Book Chat Group and meet us there at 2.30pm on February 14th. It will be lovely to see you 😀
Win one Cornish Village School book and this Cornish Village School tote bag.
I thought I would shamelessly bribe you all to sign up for my newsletter, thus I'm offering everyone who does so - before Valentine's Day 2021 - an entry into this draw. The newsletter will bring you details of any exciting things happening in my writing life - cover reveals of my new books, publication day give-aways, that sort of thing. That way you won't miss a trick. I also promise not to send squillions, it really will be only a few a year.
The prize is one of The Cornish Village School books (signed and dedicated) - whichever one you choose - and this Cornish Village School tote bag. Now those of you that know me know that sewing is a compulsion of mine, I do it very badly and curse incredibly loudly through the entire process. I think that's why I enjoy it so much. I had this fabric printed and have made four of these bags, two of which are staying in the family, one of which has gone to a reader who generously donated through the Children In Read scheme, and one remaining beauty could be yours. I say dreadful things about my sewing but these bags are incredibly sturdy and can take a lot of weight. I have several in many different designs, they are fab with even the heaviest shopping and easily go in the washing machine.

This month the final book in The Cornish Village School series - Happy Ever After - was released in paperback. So not only do I get to line them all up and make them look pretty, you can now have the whole collection on your bookshelves too.
I'm sharing the reading I did to celebrate Happy Ever After's release with you, it did make me giggle watching it back - I was so nervous. The reading is taken from the very beginning of the book when Marion makes a rather distressing discovery.
