Turning The Tide

Look what I came home to last night! It's even on Amazon! How exciting is that? (Well, obviously not as exciting for you as it is for me - but I am thrilled to bits!)

If you would like to read a taster pop over to Choc Lit where you'll find the prologue and first chapter.

I'm afraid all the excitement on top of jet-lag means I'm not doing too well on the joined-up thinking front so I'd best leave it at that for today!

Woohoo, I'm the first to congratulate you (here, at least) on such a fab cover.

What a perfect gift to find waiting for you on your return. x

Off to order my copy now from Amazon.

It is very exciting for me, Chris. It has such a beautiful cover too. And it's on Amazon so I will be reading it on Monday. Yah!
Flowerpot said…
Brilliant news Chris - and how was the trip? Hope the jetlag passes soon!

Who needs joined up thinking anyway? Very overrated when compared to the publication of your first novel and a trip to the big Apple!!
Jude said…
Oh wow...I'm sooo happy for you, the book looks great and I hope you had a fab time in NY....
Take care
Liz Fielding said…
Gorgeous, Chris! Congratulations :)
Gorgeous and YOU'RE BACK!!!!!
Hope you had a great time - well of course you did
Blossomcottage said…
Wow it all looks very exciting, I love the cover and the little I have read so far I like very much.
Love Blossom
Fennie said…
Whaaaa-ho!! (spelling?) I can imagine you must be very proud. And of course you've just flown in from New York. Star! Are we jealous - not half!

Berludy well done.
Have just read the prologue and the first chapter and am on the brink of drooling over Mr Corrigan - lovely Irish name there Chris!!!!
elizabethm said…
Totally wonderful. Am off to order my copy. x
JJ Beattie said…
Wow. It's gorgeous. Congratulations.

Can't wait to hear about New York too.
liz fenwick said…
I love the cover!!! Can't wait to read it.
Captain Black said…
Congratulations! Another hit for the racers.
ChrisH said…
Aw,Debs, thank you - I'm glad you like the cover and yes, it was lovely to find that waiting for me.

Fia, thanks - the taster's available on Choc Lit, but I should have made it clear it's not out until 30 June.

FP, thanks - trip was great, will blog about it soon.

HAH, yes it's been quite a week... this doesn't normally happen to me!!!

Jude, good to see you and thanks very much.

Liz, thank you!!

SBS, thank you for the welcome and especially for going over to read the taster... glad you approve of Mr Corrigan!

Blossom, thank you too - that means a great deal to me, good to hear that you liked it.

Fennie, it does seem a bit starry doesn't it? I can assure you though that I don't get many weeks like this! And now I'm about to clean the house and do a huge pile of ironing... although I best keep an eye on the rugby at the same time.

Aw, thanks Elizabeth, that's very kind.

JJ, thank you - I'm really pleased with it! NY was great - so much to take in.

Liz, thanks - it's made me very happy seeing it. (Btw, my trip has left me wondering how you cope with jet-lag with all the travelling you do.)
This is a beautiful cover!

It usually takes me a week to get my brain functioning properly after a trans-Atlantic flight.
Elizabethd said…
I wanted to continue reading....!
Congratualtions, I'm sure it will be a huge success.
How lovely that you met up with Frances.
Suffolkmum said…
I'm hooked already! And it looks absolutely gorgeous - I was showing off the cover to my family last night as though I'd written it! Congrats again!
Frances said…
Oh Chris, I do like this cover! What a grand sight to find when you returned home.

Hoping that you will soon be able to sleep that jet lag away. I am now going to click on the book extract and see what's just beyond that cover.

(It's still so amazing to think that you, Tom and I were just walking down Fifth Avenue together.!

This is very exciting. Even your readers are sharing it. And it looks lovely.
Pat Posner said…
It's a lovely cover, Chris!


HelenMHunt said…
How exciting. And yes, it's a great cover.
Sue Moorcroft said…
Congratulations, Chris! Choc Lit have done you proud (naturally). Hope it's a huge success.
ChrisH said…
Capt Black - thanks! Yes, it's great for the NRs, isn't it?

Helen, I'm glad you think so. Not looking forward to another few days of feeling like this though - have to admit it's a bit better today so things are looking up!

Elizabethd - aw, that's great! Thank you. And it was a sheer delight meeting Frances - I'll write about it in due course.

Gaelikaa, thank you - and it's lovely to have other people joining in and feeling pleased with me - I really appreciate it.

Pat, thank you - I do have to keep looking at it!

Helen, thanks - and here's to more NR covers!

Sue, thanks - yes, Choc Lit are brilliant, aren't they?!
L-Plate Author said…
Wow, Chris. That is some cover. It's beautiful.

Another book to go on the 'to be ordered' pile.

Sallys Chateau said…
What a fabulous thing to come home to, well done you, now puff yourself up and broadcast it loud and often !!
Well, yes, as everyone says - it is a lovely cover, but it is what is inside it that interests me and I have ordered my copy. I have to wait until June!? How exasperating, but I am looking forward to it.

Sorry I'm so late with my comment Chris - your post must have ducked under my radar!

What a brilliant cover and its on Amazon already - I'll be ordering my copy today!

Look forward to hearing about your New York trip soon.

How exciting for you Chris. And you went to NY and met Frances!! I'm glad you've had such a lovely week, you deserve it.
ChrisH said…
L-Plate - here's to yours too, and thank you.

Rosie, you are very kind, thank you.

Jeanne, NY was fab and it was lovely to come back to this - and thank you for pre-ordering.

Bradan, Aw! Frances is truly lovely - as you would expect! - I'll be writing about our meeting soon.

It is Bea-UTIFUL! Congratulations!

Not til the 30th June? Not soon enough.

The cover is gorgeous.

What a time for you!
