Shortly after I published Pause to Rewind as an ebook, a reader contacted me to see if I would be publishing a paperback as she wished to gift the story to two people. At the time, I had no plans to produce a paperback. Because of production costs, they are more expensive to produce, retail higher and are consequently less in demand on amazon.

Then I thought, well, this woman had a good experience and wants to share it which is pretty kind. Publishing a paperback would be an adventure. And the clincher: I could give a physical copy of the book to my son, the little boy who features on the cover. (No longer, little, I might add.)

And so, today, drum roll, I can announce: WE HAVE A PAPERBACK. Available on and So a big thank you to that reader. Her kindness has changed my plans for the better. Happy Christmas.

Christmas Story

dfw-aa-cg-cover-midI have been sooo quiet. This is because I’ve been as busy as a Christmas elf (excuse the analogy – tis the season of getting away with terrible similes):

What, you might ask, have I been up to? Well, I’ve been editing The Accidental Life of Greg Millar so that it is ready to publish on December 27th. I’ve been working on a paperback of Pause to Rewind which I would LOVE to have out for Christmas, but can’t promise. And I’ve been editing and finding a lovely cover for a Christmas short story called Checkout Girl – the little baby, there, on your left. If your heart is in need of warming, or your spirits uplifting, this might just do the trick. No promises, mind. Happy Christmas.
