Goldcord Asylum blog tour day 5: members-only post at One in 500, plus free signed bookplates!

Today I’m talking a little about Goldcord Asylum, expectations and representations at the One in 500 – women on the autistic spectrum Facebook group, which is curated by my lovely friend Tara. It’s a closed group so the post won’t be visible to non-members, which I’m aware is an unusual approach for a blog tour but I wanted to do it anyway because the group is so appropriate to the book, as well as being a great resource for women on the spectrum.

However, I haven’t forgotten about the rest of you and so I have ten signed bookplates (or to be precise, old pharmacy labels as they seemed appropriate for this book!) to give away to the first ten people to email their addresses to me. Remember to enter the competitions to win a copy of the paperback with signed label on Madame Guillotine, Goodreads and For Books’ Sake too – the Madame Guillotine draw will take place at midnight tonight (UK time) so get in there before it closes!

Over the weekend I’ll be rounding off the tour with a couple of interviews, so stay tuned for those and remember to email me if you’d like a signed label.

Goldcord Asylum blog tour day 4: review, contest and a little about Goldcord’s bonus material

Today’s a busy day in the Goldcord Asylum blog tour, with a lovely review and a chance to win a copy on For Books’ Sake, and a guest post on Nik Perring’s blog in which I discuss the ‘DVD extras’-style bonus material at the end of the book and how I came to decide what to include. Thank you to Tara and For Books’ Sake, and to Nik for hosting me!

Goldcord Asylum blog tour day 3: win a book!

Today’s Goldcord Asylum tour giveaway takes place on Goodreads, with a copy of the book complete with a signed pharmacy label up for grabs. Go and check it out, and remember that there’s a copy to be won at Madame Guillotine too, as well as one coming up on For Books’ Sake!

Goldcord Asylum blog tour day 2: Victorian asylums and a book giveaway!

Today’s guest post for the Goldcord Asylum blog tour is hosted by Melanie Clegg on her fabulous art-and-history blog Madame Guillotine, and is dedicated to the strange world of the mid-Victorian ‘lunatic asylum’. There’s a book to be won as well, complete with a signed vintage pharmacy label! Thanks to Melanie for letting me borrow her lovely audience for the day.

In other news, Goldcord has just been approved for the Smashwords premium catalogue which means that it will soon be available in some more ebook stores including Kobo, iBooks and Nook – more information once I have it!
