Out now - Disraeli Avenue

I've been waiting to tell you all about this. Those of you who don't already know, that is.

There is finally a new book by Caroline Smailes. A novella titled Disraeli Avenue, a companion piece to her novel In Search of Adam which is just out in paperback. Regular visitors will know how much I loved In Search of Adam so I have been waiting eagerly for this novella to be published.

The best news of all is that you can download it here as a free ebook, all that Caroline asks is that if possible a donation be made to the small charity One in Four, which supports adults who have suffered sexual abuse or violence. It is easy to do this via the JustGiving page she has set up.

Caroline (who really is Nice Caroline, I've met her) is already well on her way to achieving her initial fundraising target. I've just got my own download of Disraeli Avenue and I'm confident that I'm going to enjoy it as much as In Search of Adam, which was my book of 2007.

So what are you waiting for? Go get yourself a great book and help a very worthwhile charity at the same time. It's a no-brainer.

Three notable things:

1. My essay is finished. It just needs to be proofread over the weekend.

2. Half term now for a week and a half...

3. I treated myself to a Michael Buble CD in Tesco today. I think it might be good music to study to.

I love Michael Buble. My sister went to see him in concert in Manchester before Christmas. He has a beautiful voice, so easy to listen to.

Caroline - you're welcome honey.

Crystal and Debs...yes I've lstened to it now. Very relaxing. A good purchase, I think.
