Reviews:

If you love me, I’m yours:

” If You Love Me, I’m Yours “ by Lizzie Chantree is a tale of Maud an unfulfilled woman with great artistic ability …Dot a woman who struggled to fit into an artistic world that so easily was was conquered by her brother Nate an artist of repute and renown. In this story the characters search for and discover exactly who they are and what it is that they truly want outa life….and in the process find love and their own HEAs! A wonderful read…greatly enjoyed and Highly Recommended.’

Ninja School Mum:

‘Skye has a secret that is only revealed as the book goes on – I liked how her past story was revealed piece by piece, leaving the reader guessing until the end.
There’s much to enjoy in “Ninja School Mum” which isn’t all simply romance. Skye is lonely – and that isn’t helped by being ignored by the other mothers at the school gates; bullying also rears its ugly head; Skye is a loyal friend – as her new friend Thea discovers; and there is romance – with lovely Zack who also has his demons to fight.

I thoroughly recommend this novel – that combines lots of humour with the hard-hitting subjects of bullying and loneliness. The characters are memorable and I’d love to have Skye as a friend.’

Introducing Rachel Brimble.

It’s my great pleasure to introduce you to the author of the Pennington’s Department Store series & Harlequin Superromance series, Rachel Brimble.

A Little Something About Me… by Rachel Brimble

I often consider how lucky I am to still be best friends with someone I met when I was just four years old. Lisa lived across the street from me and we became fast friends the moment our parents started letting us play outside…times were different in the late 70s!

Forty years on and we are still friends and also fortunate enough that our husbands have known each other since they were eleven. The four of us have been pretty inseparable since we started double-dating in 1993.

Our favourite thing to do, now our kids are older. is to take an annual trip to Butlins for their 80s weekends. These are the times we let lose and the music makes us feel like teenagers again – I would go as far to say that we might even lose our minds a little!

Dressing up in costume, having fun and remembering what it is like to be young is what the four of us are all about and I love our best friends with all my heart…

Rachel’s latest book will be released February 5thand is available for preorder right now! A Rebel At Pennington’s is book 2 in her Edwardian series set in Bath’s finest department store. Both books can be read stand alone – here are the blurb and buy links:

Cover

One woman’s journey to find herself and help secure the vote. Perfect for the fans of the TV series Mr Selfridge and The Paradise.

1911 Bath. Banished from her ancestral home, passionate suffrage campaigner, Esther Stanbury works as a window dresser in Pennington’s Department Store. She has hopes and dreams for women’s progression and will do anything to help secure the vote.
Owner of the prestigious Phoenix Hotel, Lawrence Culford has what most would view as a successful life. But Lawrence is harbouring shame, resentment and an anger that threatens his future happiness.

When Esther and Lawrence meet their mutual understanding of life’s challenges unites them and they are drawn to the possibility of a life of love that neither thought existed.
With the Coronation of King-Emperor George V looming, the atmosphere in Bath is building to fever pitch, as is the suffragists’ determination to secure the vote.

Will Esther’s rebellious nature lead her to ruin or can they overcome their pasts and look to build a future together?

Happy New Year’s Eve!

Happy New Year’s Eve  everyone.

I was lucky enough to receive six marketing books that I’d wished for, for Christmas this year. I’ve begun reading them and will share any insights on my regular Marketing blogs in 2019. I can’t wait to get back to working on my latest romance book, as I have written about 20,000 words  and would like to complete it in the near future.

I hope that you all have exciting plans for the New Year and that 2019 brings lots of happiness and success to you all. I can’t wait to discover some new reads and to share them here too. I’ve tried lots of different genres in 2018, but am still drawn to the ones I write in, which are romance and humour.

Wishing you all an amazing and fulfilling New Year.

The saying goes, If you love what you have, you have everything you need.

Happy 2019!

Introducing Miriam Drori.

Hello, Lizzie and Lizzie’s readers. I’m delighted to be here. Here are a few of the things that distinguish me from other authors. I didn’t grow up wanting to be a writer; there are reasons for that. I studied Maths at university and worked as a computer programmer and later as a technical writer. I live in Israel, having emigrated from the UK. I suffer from… make that: live with… social anxiety, but nevertheless love giving presentations. I go dancing (folk dancing) three times a week. My books are all different: romance, historical fiction, non-fiction.

Blurb for Social Anxiety Revealed

Fear of other people? Most of us feel this occasionally, when giving a presentation or being grilled in a job interview. This is not social anxiety disorder.

Fear of what other people think of you? We have all felt this, too. It is why we dress as we do and generally try to behave in a way that is expected of us. This is not social anxiety disorder either.

But when those fears become so prevalent that they take over your life? When they cause you to hide away, either literally or by not revealing your real self? When you keep quiet in an attempt to avoid those raised eyebrows and the possible thoughts behind them? That is social anxiety disorder.

And it is much more common than you might think. In the mental health table, it comes third – after alcoholism and depression – and yet most people don’t even know it exists.

If you have social anxiety disorder, this book is for you.

Even if you don’t have social anxiety disorder, you might have a friend, a relative or a work colleague who does. You might see it developing in your son, your daughter, or a child you teach. This book is for you, too.

Social Anxiety Revealed is created by people who yearn to ditch all these problems and live their lives to the full.

Introducing Jess B Moore.

Today’s guest, Jess B Moore, is not only a great writer, but she’s fun, friendly and full of great ideas. Her books are a joy to read and if you haven’t picked one up yet, give one a try. In my view, you won’t be disappointed! Jess also has a beautiful Instagram page. If you like seeing lots of pretty bookish posts, pop by and check her page out.

From Jess:

Jess B Moore is a writer of love stories.  When she’s not writing, she’s busy mothering her talented and stubborn children, reading obscene numbers of books, and knitting scarves she’ll likely never finish.   

Jess lives in small town North Carolina with her bluegrass obsessed family.  She takes too many pictures of her cats, thinking the Internet loves them as much as she does.  She is a firm believer of swapping stories over coffee or wine, and that there should always be dark chocolate involved.   

The Guilt of a Sparrow is her debut novel combining her interests in family, music, and small towns into a thoughtful tale of growing up and falling in love.  Her second book, Fierce Grace, follows similar themes in a whole new way, and is NOW available.  The Worth of a Penny, Jess’ third novel, the sequel to The Guilt of a Sparrow, will be out Spring 2019. 

You can read her new book Beauty & Melancholy in monthly installments by signing up for her newsletter

Introducing Lynn Forth.

Welcome to today’s introducing post, where I introduce your to some amazing authors and creatives I have met over the last few years. Lynn Forth is a wonderful romance writer and her books make you want to keep turning page after page. I absolutely love the photo she has sent me to show us her personality. You can’t help but smile, as she really is such a flamboyant character! I enjoyed reading Lynn’s first book, Love in La La Land, as it’s beautifully written and packed full of fun and romance and can’t wait to find out more abut her latest book.

Lynn silly pic

Over to Lynn:

Although I’m a northern girl from Accrington, I have lived in Worcestershire for many years with my husband and family. But having gone to university in Yorkshire, I find it’s my northern roots that have inspired both my books.

My first book, Love in La La Land is a romantic comedy set in the glitzy world of Hollywood, where a down-to-earth Yorkshire lass, Jane Jones, is excited to see her novel being made into a film. But in this City of Stars, will she come to earth with a bump? Or can she write her own happy ending? As she negotiates this sleazy world of glittering parties, hovering paparazzi, and powerful movie tycoons, she has to decide who can be trusted and who can’t.

My latest book Love, Lies and Café au Lait was inspired by my first trip to Nice many years ago. I was sitting in a café delighting in all the sights and sounds of the famous Nice market when I had one of those blissful, goose-pimpling moments thinking about what’s a girl from Accrington doing in a swanky place like this. And years later, Annie’s story emerged from those imaginings.

At first, in Love, Lies and Café au Lait, when Annie has a chance to go to live in  cosmopolitan Nice, it seems like a dream come true, even if it does involve dog-sitting a pampered pooch for the winter.

But, once in France, despite trying to adopt a classy persona, Annie attracts the attention of all the wrong people: from Jacques, an attractive waiter, to Reen, a perma-tanned expat from the Costa del Sol.

And just who is the charming Monsieur Xavier who is so keen to befriend her? Dare she enlist his help to solve the mystery left behind by her France-obsessed mother?

Can Annie find her way through all the lies, intrigue and deception or is she just too nice for Nice?

Powerful words.

I hope you have all had a great weekend. I read an interesting article on Saturday about finding insights from inspirational quotes. It was explaining how we can look at the words used in popular quotes and to try and work out what is so powerful about them. Why do they make an impact and what do they mean to us?

Logic meme by Lizzie Chantree

We can turn this around and ask the same question of our own writing. Do our words convey the message we want them to? Are our readers going to feel an emotional attachment to our stories from what we have written? It’s a top tip when sitting back and reconsidering everything during the editing stage. Are you making the impression you want to? If not, what can you do to really make your story work?

Happy writing!

THE THINGS WE LEAVE UNSAID

Is it the things we don’t say that haunt us the most?

Ambitious café owner, Tessa has more family drama than a soap opera. While she might be an open book, her parent’s ill-fated marriage has scared her away from long-term relationships.

Her employee, shy and unassuming Clare just wants to create a family with husband, Pete, but finds herself in a family history search that challenges everything she thought she knew about her life.

As both women face untold truths, will they realise the path to true love, happiness and family?

The Things We Leave Unsaid will be published by Crooked Cat books on 22 August 2018.
