#AuthorSpotlight & #Giveaway on LoveBooksGroup
To celebrate the publication of All The Colours In Between, the lovely Kelly of Love Books Group invited me over for a QA – and I’ve got something to give away too!
You’ve got a chance to win a signed copy of All The Colours In Between
Among the questions was what I would tell my sixteen-year-old self and here’s my answer (even though I know she’d never have listened!).
“I would definitely tell my sixteen-year-old self to be more confident, to worry less about life and fitting in with others, and believe in myself a little more – I turned out to be far more capable than I gave myself credit for. I would also encourage my younger self to travel more.”

#GuestPost ‘Why We Need Older Protagonists’ on Linda’s Book Bag
Guest Post Quote
“There is a lot to be said for writing about ‘older’ characters, including a lot more scope for a back-story. As a writer, you get to ask how your characters personalities were shaped?”

#Interview on Kendra Olson’s Blog
Fellow author Kendra Olson invited me over on her blog in celebration of the release of ‘183 Times A Year.‘ One of her questions was:
‘What would you like readers to come away with, after reading your book?’
“To remember that we’re all human, all flawed and that we all make mistakes. Remember to love family and those that love and support us – it’s easy to take people for granted. If your Mum drives you crazy, remember she’s just doing her best, being a parent is one of the most difficult but rewarding jobs in the world and one that comes without an instruction manual.”

#Interview on The Book Magnet
“One of my favourite books of 2015 is the wonderful 183 Times a Year by Eva Jordan. It’s a book that really made me think about how I act and react with those I love and, to my absolute shame I have to admit, if the book was about me it would be called 360 Times a Year.” Says the lovely Michelle of The Book Magnet in her introduction to our QA.

#GuestPost The Importance of Strong Female Friendships on Linda’s Book Bag
My debut novel 183 Times A Year is a poignant, heartfelt look at the complex and diverse relationship between a mother and daughter set amongst the thorny realities of today’s modern family. Strong female friendships – and the strongest of all, the mother-daughter relationship – is one of the themes I explore in my novels.
Guest Post Quote
“Strong, female friendships are, I believe, important for women. Good friends, along with family and loved ones often support us through the bad times and laugh with us during the good times.”
