I’m not quite ready yet with the big blog revamp but I do have a tartan-tastic new cover for my disgruntled celebrity chef novel ‘Reaching for the Stars’. Check it out!
FREE to download on Saturday 25th, Sunday 26th & Bank Holiday Monday!

To celebrate the new look cover and also the August Bank Holiday you can download Reaching for the Stars to your Kindle or Kindle App on your PC, Mac, iPad etc for FREE from Amazon on Saturday 25th, Sunday 26th and Bank Holiday Monday 27th August. Click the link and please feel free to spread the news far and wide!
This is what some reviewers have said about Reaching for the Stars:
“I love the way that Janice writes. You are whisked away to a part of Scotland and get so involved with the story that you feel that you are playing a star role in the book.” Kim The Bookworm
“A wonderful plot and some extremely engaging characters all bundled together in a steamy Scottish kitchen!”  Lou Graham - Book Blogger
“Even though I knew this was a complete work of fiction, I found it fun to imagine one of the top celebrity chefs losing their marbles and giving it all up. What an amazing story that would be to follow in the tabloids.” Lindsay Gentles - Turning the Pages Book Blog
“Horton's writing actually transports the reader straight to the scene - I felt like I actually knew some of the characters.” Sarah Taylor - Today I’m Reading Book Blog.
“Well done Janice Horton you have got the 5 star from me...” Rea Book Reviews

Also: 'Reaching for the Stars' was voted The Most Popular Book of the Month for January 2012 with Readers - on Jera's Jamboree Book Blog!

My other news is that The 'Gilly & Kim Let Loose' show is back on BBC Radio Cumbria on Bank Holiday Monday (Aug 27) from 12-2pm. This time it's all about romance and will feature the interview I recorded with Gilly at the Romantic Novelist's Conference last month. Gilly and Kim have been described as the French & Saunders of Radio Cumbria!  So if you get a chance - do listen in on Monday - but if you do miss it you can always 'Listen Again' for up to seven days from the web! BBC Radio Cumbria is on 95.6FM 96.1FM and 104.1FM.
Kim & Gilly - the French & Saunders of BBC Radio Cumbria!
That’s it for this week – have a great Bank Holiday everyone.
