Unequal By Birth Book Launch
What a wonderful experience the launch of Unequal By Birth has been. The book came out on Friday last week and by the celebration event on Saturday I was already sitting about Hilary Mantel in the US Historical Fiction chart on Amazon.
New Walk Museum
The launch event itself was at the New Walk Museum in Leicester. Chris and I took the opportunity to spend some time in the museum while we were there and were fortunate enough to see the incredible 100 First Women exhibition. It is worth a visit just to see that gallery – quite outstanding and definitely in keeping with the theme of my book. My characters would have loved it.
The launch event was thoroughly enjoyable and I was touched by the number of people attending. Those present ranged from family and people who have known me all my life, to fans who have only found my work more recently. I was delighted to share it with each and every one of them.
Now is the very worst stage for being the writer of the book, waiting for the reviews to come in. Reviews are essential in helping new readers find our work and I am metaphorically holding my breath to see if you like the book.
Thank you all. For those who have not yet bought the book, the ebook is currently on special offer for a limited period and should you be interested in buying a signed paperback then please email me so I can sort it out. And, of course, if you have finished reading the book, please do leave a review.
Unequal By Birth
All they wanted was equality, but at what price?
Currently at the discounted price of 99p / $1.28
1866 – Daniel Flynn and Molly Reilly’s lives have been dogged by hardship since their orphan days on the streets of New York. Finally, the future is looking bright and Indiana is the place they call home. Now they can focus on making Cochrane’s Farm a success.
The Civil War might have ended but the battle for Cochrane’s Farm has only just begun. The Reese brothers are incensed that land, once part of their family farm, has been transferred to the ownership of young Molly. No matter that their Daddy had sold it years previously, jealousy and revenge have no regard for right. Women should know their place and this one clearly doesn’t.
Times are changing and a woman’s place is changing with it. How far will Daniel and Molly go to fight injustice and is it a price worth paying?
