Big thanks to the book bloggers

It’s been two and a half weeks now since Time to Say Goodbye was released.

Last Friday I got the fantastic news that it was No.1 in The Bookseller’s Fiction Heatseekers chart, based on sales. I was over the moon.

However, the main purpose of this post is to say a massive thank-you to the book blogging community for supporting the launch of my debut novel. You all play such an important role in the modern publishing process – and your enthusiasm is fantastic.

I had a brilliant blog tour (everyone involved did a superb job) and I’ve had so many amazing reviews from bloggers far and wide.

Hats off to all those who’ve helped spread the word, whether it’s been by sharing the cover reveal last December, carrying a guest blog on their site, or taking the time to write a review. It’s all massively appreciated.

Here are some of my favourite things bloggers have said about Time to Say Goodbye:

‘A strong contender for my favourite book of the year … Emotional, heart-warming, tragic, bittersweet, charming and very, very satisfying.’ Silver Thistle bookblog

‘One of those unique books that once read will truly stay with you for a lifetime.’

‘A beautiful well written heart-rending story about a father’s love for his daughter.’ ireadnovels

‘A tender, warm, and wonderfully written novel.’ Becca’s Books

‘An engaging, heartfelt and stunning read.’ A Spoonful of Happy Endings

‘A heartbreaking story of a father not wishing to leave his daughter’s side ... well worth a read.’ Lozza’s Book Corner

‘Gave me hope, renewed my faith and made me feel like there is more to look forward to on the other side of life than just an empty space.’ Comfy Reading

‘A moving, beautifully written novel I’d happily put on my “re-read” shelf.’ October’s Leaf

‘Makes the reader think about life beyond death, and what would happen to those left behind should we be able to hang around to watch … Fantastic story.’ RockChicBlog

Guest blog round-up

So Time to Say Goodbye has been released for just over a week now.

It’s been fantastic seeing it ‘out in the wild’ and hearing so many people’s lovely comments.

Time to Say Goodbye is out now.

This is the first chance I’ve had to post a blog here since publication, although I’ve been busy writing articles and guest blogging on various other websites.

Below is a selection of some of those things I’ve written, including details of my journey to publication, manuscript editing tips, a look at my two central characters, and advice to help busy dads get closer to their daughters.

Hope you enjoy.
