What a Voodoo Week!

Thank you to everyone who took part in the Spellbindingly Fun Blog Party last Friday – it was great fun! Lots and lots of party peeps took part and I was amazed at how imaginative and clever you all were with casting your spells.

In the prize draw for Spellbinding Bloggers – Caroline James won the Highland scented candle in the exact purple tartan to match the cover of How Do You Voodoo?

Caroline kindly uploaded this photo to Facebook and wrote: So thrilled - I won this lovely candle at Janice Horton's Spellbinding Fun Blog Party!

Sheryl Browne and Nicky Wells were the Twitter draw winners and each now have a Voodoo Love Doll complete with pins!
How Do You Voodoo? was free on launch day and downloaded over 500 times – reaching number 20 in an Amazon Top 100 Chart. Amazing!
Over the past week, I’ve been on tour promoting How Do You Voodoo? I’ve been interviewed on some fabulous blogs about my writing, my research, where I get my story ideas from and I have also been fortunate that several very well respected Book Bloggers have pulled out all the stops to read and review How Do You Voodoo?  during my promotional week. So if you have a few moments in your coffee break - do pop over to each of the blog links below to visit these fabulous blogs and see what I’ve been up to on my Voodoo-tastic blog tour!

And as if that wasn’t all fabulous enough this week More Than A Review.Com included How Do You Voodoo? in their list of Recommended Halloween Reads!

And Kim The Bookworm discussed How Do You Voodoo? on her Stafford FM Radio Show Book Club slot last Thursday. Thanks Kim! I’ll add the podcast link as soon as I have it.

The Dumfries and Galloway Standardmy local newspaper is running an article on the launch of How Do You Voodoo? today (Friday 2nd Nov) I’ll post a link to the online version of this article as soon as I have it.

And, last but not least, this week I launched my brand new Bookshelf Reviews feature on the innovative magazine style website I’ll be presenting this feature twice monthly to bring you the latest reviews and reader opinions on one of the’s featured author’s books – helping you to discover an outstanding new book, an exciting new author and a fabulous new writing talent!

That’s it for this week (I think I need to lie down now!) See you all next Friday!
