I'm a big fan of Kate Long's books. She's brilliant at characterisation, and at portraying the complex and subtle emotions of family life. I'm half way through this one now, and I'd say it's her best one yet. Study her style - you could learn a lot. Kate will be providing a guest post for this blog in a couple of week's time, as part of her blog tour, which starts tomorrow at Sally's blog. Click here to buy the book.
Next up will be David Hough's latest:
David's a member of my weekly writing class. I've read several of his now, and he most certainly knows how to tell a good story. I'm looking forward to this one - I know once I pick it up I'll be unable to put it down again. Click here to buy it.
Last but not least, will be this one by blogging pal Tamsyn Murray:
Tam's a member of one of my online writing groups. She has a fantastic lively writing style, and as well as this teen fiction novel, she's about to publish a series for younger children, and has a picture book and second teen novel in the pipeline. Oh, and she also writes shorts for women's magazines. Oh, and she's gorgeous and can sing as well.
The woman has it all. Don't you just hate her? ;-) Click here to buy it.
