I have just published Earth Magic under the name Linda M Priestley because it's a love story very far removed from my gritty crime novels. I expect I shall have to start another blog under that name but until then I'll post here.
A novella-length gentle love story.
Physically and mentally scarred after a terrible accident, Claire is trying to pull her life together. Bullied because of her appearance she is saved by Jake, a young man with troubles of his own. In working with him in the garden he has created, Claire finds peace and a purpose in life, along with the first steps towards friendship and, perhaps, even love. However, Claire's fragile, new-found confidence is threatened when family loyalties cause friction between them.
I have scheduled Earth Magic to go free Wednesday 14th to Friday 16th March, in time for Mothering Sunday.
