In which I demonstrate why I should never try to do an audiobook, and also get very over-excited by the sight of the first copy of Baking Bad. Which has a slightly different cover from the one I went for in the end, but is no different at its heart – which, like all good cozy mysteries, contains a lot of tea, cake, and a mild helping of murder.
I had great good intentions of filming some nice videos while I was away, with pretty tropical skies behind me, but to be honest it’s rained most days, so that hasn’t quite happened. Maybe next week, although I’m not sure I should do any more reading aloud. Certainly not where dialogue is concerned. Or coherent sentences…
Anyhow, lovely people – the release of Baking Bad is coming up quickly! I published the first chapter on the blog this week, and the second chapter will follow next Wednesday – where you’ll also get the opportunity to grab a free copy of the ebook for a limited time. Unless, of course, you’d like to preorder it and have it delivered straight to your device on release day (2nd November) – in which case click here for the UK version, here for the US, or here for Australia. Paperbacks will also be available!
And that’s enough of that – let’s get to the bad reading aloud and excitable mumbling, shall we? Tropical skies shall be with you in next week’s vid (weather permitting. I have doubts. I’ve been here 2 1/2 weeks and I’ve seen the sun once. But you know what? It’s beautiful anyway. It always is.)
So tell me, lovely people – what’s your favourite sort of weather? Do you mind a bit of wind and rain? Do you enjoy storms or sun or both? And what’s your favourite sort of holiday (doing stuff, not doing stuff, sun or sea or mountains…)? Let me know below!
And don’t forget to check back on Wednesday so you can read the second chapter of Baking Bad!
