Fun times, peeps, fun times! Grab yourself a glass of something bubbly – because the sun is shining where I am and it’s a Bank Holiday weekend so why would you not; I’ve already been on the bucks fizz this morning – and make yourself comfortable because today I’m chatting with the lovely Dawn Barker about her novel Let Her Go, and writing in general.

Blog Tour: True Love at the Lonely Hearts Bookshop

Exciting times here today guys! The lovely True Love at the Lonely Hearts Bookshop was released earlier this month and to celebrate I get to share a fun little extract with you. 
Also if you want to know more about this book then the Blog Tour is going on til the end of the month:

I also don’t think I’m going to be the only one. This book, I think, is going to go places. It’s going to be one of the hits of the year and if it isn’t – well, then you may colour me confused because it totally should because it’s not often that a book br…
