#AugustBankHoliday offer: 3 at just 99p each

Whether you're reading on the beach or in a caravan with the rain splattering against the windows (hope not!), you might like to know that three of my books are on offer at only 99p/99c on both Amazon UK and from Thursday August 25th to Wednesday August 31st.  

Click the title of each book for your Amazon page (universal link) with full blurb, all reviews and buy links Thanks for your interest :)

The House of York ~ a dark family saga inspired by events from the Wars of the Roses:

Love and loss, abduction, incestuous desires and murderous intent form the basis of this compelling saga in which horrors float just beneath the surface, to bring forth a shocking outcome.

What It Takes ~ the tale of three sisters. 

Set in Norfolk, Terry Tyler's sixth novel, What It Takes, is a story of insecurity, jealousy, sibling rivalry, love and loss, and the games people play in the search for love - because if you love someone with all your heart you’ll do what it takes to make them yours…

The Other Side ~  if you liked the film 'Sliding Doors', or Kate Atkinson's 'Life After Life', this story of possible parallel lives might interest you...

The Other Side travels backwards through time to unravel the decisions of the past and their influence on the present lives of everyone concerned - for better or for worse...

 ....and I hope your August Bank Holiday is not like this...

Links to Amazon reviews written by you, not promotion for your own books, please.
Please do not tweet blog links to the hashtag 

Why (not)?
  • The purpose of this initiative is to get more readers posting reviews on Amazon.  If you post blog links, it might put off new reviewers and lead them to think you need a blog to review.  
  • If you use it for your own book promo, it will just end up as....yet another book promo hashtag.
