I’m absolutely delighted The Sister is still No. 1 in the Amazon UK Kindle charts. This week Amazon are featuring The Sister as their Paperback of the Week so if you fancy a physical copy it’s half price for the next few days.
‘Strike a Pose’ was written for Friday Fictioneers. A 100 word story inspired by a photo prompt. Read the other entries over at host Rochelle’s blog and please join in! The more the merrier.
