Three HUGE things to blog about!
1) 'A Bella Street Mystery: The Secret Formula' is now available on Amazon as a kindle book!! Check it out here! It is also available at smashwords.com here! A paperback will soon be available at Amazon so watch this space!
2) The amazing Anna Branford, author of the wonderful Violet Mackerel books, has written a lovely review ...
'Bella Street and the Secret Formula' ... was such a fun read ... The pace is wonderfully fast and the writing so energetic ... a very enjoyable story!
3) The incomparable author Bella Street (yes! The author Bella Street as opposed to my Bella) has sent me so much encouragement and advice! She and her daughter have been amazingly supportive! Check out Bella's wonderful books here!
How lucky I am to have received so much kindness from Anna and Bella! While I am thanking wonderful ladies, I should also mention the fabulous Stephanie King at Usborne Publishing in London - Stephanie gave me the push I needed to take my Bella in a whole new direction! For which I will be eternally grateful! (I love Usborne books! They have a very distinctive style.)
4) Yes, I know I said I had 3 great things to blog about but I really can't sign off without mentioning this interesting piece of news from Publishers Weekly:
'The percentage of book buyers who reported downloading an e-book rose from 5% in October 2010 to 13% in January, according to the latest installment of Book Industry Study Group's "Consumer Attitudes Toward E-Book Reading" survey.'
See the rest of the article here. Good news!
Happy Mother's Day!

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.
