Joe Konrath (epublishing guru, check out his blog here) wrote a piece recently which I think is groundbreaking (not surprising from Mr Konrath) where he talks about how ebooks could possibly develop into 'Active ebooks', becoming social networking sites for fans among other things. Read this article and see if it doesn't change the way you think about books! Very exciting!
Also, it seems ebook sales continue to rocket, according to Publishers' Weekly, with sales up 160% for the quarter. Publishers' Weekly also report that sales of kindle ebooks on Amazon now outnumber sales of paperback plus hardcover COMBINED! And that doesn't include free ebooks!
The paperback of 'A Bella Street Mystery: The Secret Formula' is coming out very soon - watch this space! The incredibly talented Linh Luu is the book designer and I am so lucky to have her!
Finally, been meaning to shout out to my number one fan Jolie Wilson! I have never met Jolie, who I think is 12, but she posted the BEST review anyone could ever ask for on Amazon! What a star! Thank you Jolie, so much!
Over and out!

Clare grew up in Constable Country not far from East Trimley where Kate Summers and Detective Vicky Allard solve their local mysteries and where The Bellamy Bird is set. Clare lived for many years on a street in Manhattan just like the street where Bella and Felix live although she was never chased through Central Park at night by a couple of failed fashion-world gangsters. Clare now lives on a high cliff next to a lighthouse in Australia where she plots and writes with her faithful chocolate labrador by her side.
