It’s here! Get your copy of Snarl (A Kate Redman Mystery: Book 4) now!

It’s heeeeeeere! Finally! Better late than never… and all that. The brand-spanking new Kate Redman Mystery, Snarl, is finally available for download from Amazon (am currently awaiting publication on the other channels such as iBooks – I’ll keep you posted when it becomes available there).

Even better, for the next three days, you’ll be able to grab it at a bargain promotional price of ¬£1.85 or $2.99. But hurry, because the price goes up to the normal amount of ¬£2.99 / $4.99 on Monday 14th April…

I’m pleased with this one. It’s slightly longer than the other books, introduces a brand new character and, I think, has a nicely convoluted plot (hence the title) which should keep you guessing. But do please leave me a review or drop me a line here or on Facebook or Twitter and let me know what you think.

And most excitingly of all, Snarl is already charting on TWO genre lists in the UK: No. 13 in Cosy Crime and No. 57 in British Detectives. Amazing :) Ooh, and I’ve just checked the US site – No. 72 in British Detectives over there too! Hurrah!

Celebrate! Snarl is off to the editor…

Well, after another week of rewriting (the final scene is particularly took AGES – those darn characters just would not do what I wanted them to – most annoying…), Snarl (Kate Redman Mystery Book 4) is now winging its way to my editor and we’re on course for a publication date of about two weeks time.

The day after finishing a book is always a bit strange. I sort of potter about feeling a bit bereft but also quite a bit relieved! I’ve also now got time to devote to my next series; the four novelettes/novellas about the West Country¬†mansion and the various dastardly deeds that take place there throughout the twentieth century. First one will be out….soon…

Final words of Snarl have been written!


Yeeehaaa! Today I wrote the final words of the first draft of Snarl (A Kate Redman Mystery: Book 4). Happy days! I’ll be editing all week and then the MS will go off to those professionals who can bully, beat and whip my words into decent shape. So I’m on track for an early April release for the finished product, which admittedly is two whole months after I originally said I’d have it published. Oops. Sorry readers. I hereby swear that I will never again set ridiculous deadlines for myself – I always break them!

I’ll keep you posted on a final publication date – sign up to the newsletter for a special promotional price when the book is actually released…

Cover Reveal! Snarl (A Kate Redman Mystery: Book 4) is here!


I am so excited to be able to share the new cover for the upcoming new Kate Redman Mystery, Snarl, the fourth in the series. Designed by the ultra-talented Chris Howard of Blondesign (who does all my super covers), this is the first time it’s been revealed to the world. What do you think? Of course, I personally love it :)

The book itself is nearing completion and should be available for release towards the end of March/early April. Yes, I know I said February at the end of Imago, but as my faithful readers will know, I ain’t very good with deadlines. Henceforth, I’ll be saying things like ‘released in Summer 2014′ rather than give an exact date!
