A Big Week...I Reach a Certain Age and The Cornish House Comes Out In Paperback

This is a big week for me...I turn fifty and on Thursday The Cornish House comes out in paperback. In many ways I feel they are connected...Two years ago today marks the two book deal with Orion and that was a major event. It was the realisation of dream.
The paperback of The Cornish House available here


Now with The Cornish House coming out in paperback I hope to spy copies in more shops and maybe even see someone other than friends and family reading it...although I had a big thrill this weekend when my eldest spent the weekend with his nose stuck into it. I was delighted to see his expression change as a grin would appear or a frown. I knew The Cornish House wouldn't normally his choice of book but he said he loved it and I know he meant it because he's a terrible liar! Of course DD read it and loved it before him...


The other lovely thing about the paperback is what included...so many readers told me they had fallen in love with the house, Trevenen. So for the extra material at the back of the paperback there is the history of Trevenen including floor plans.
In honour of this major milestone week I'm giving away three signed copies of the paperback of The Cornish House. Just leave a comment...
