Ladies & Gentlemen, please welcome my guest today - the lovely Janice Horton

I'm delighted today to host the lovely Janice Horton to my blog as my guest.  Thanks for joining me Janice, over to you! 

This weekend, it’s a whole year since I first launched my blog at and in that time so many amazing things have happened to me. I’ve made lots of new friends. I have launched not one but two novels as ebooks and each have gone on to feature in Amazon’s Top 100 Bestsellers lists. I have joined Twitter and been encouraged to share my writerly news on Facebook. In June last year, as a direct result of all of this social networking, I was invited to join an elite team of readers and writers on in innovative website Loveahappyending com. This June, I’ve been invited to speak at the Loveahappyending Summer Audience Event in Tetbury Gloucestershire. My talk is entitled ‘From Zero to my Latest Hero’. Tickets are now available and you can find out more about this event on my blog or from the Loveahappyending website.

Kim The Bookworm is one of the lovely people I’ve met over this past year and she has been so generous with her time and enthusiasm in reviewing both of my ebooks, Bagpipes & Bullshot and Reaching for the Stars on her review blog. This is in part what Kim had to say about my latest novel ‘Reaching for the Stars’.

“I love the way that Janice writes.  Her words flow so easily from page to page and her descriptions make the whole story come to life. You are whisked away to a part of Scotland where you feel you’ve always known and get so involved with the story that you feel that you are playing a star role in the book. You are left desperate to find out where the plot is going, and certainly in this case, left hanging on right to the very end with twists and turns along the way but also with a great deal of humour which again makes the read so enjoyable.  And there's always a great deal of romance thrown in as well as a gorgeous leading man and a beautiful leading lady, both of with which you fall in love with and would love to know in real life.  She is a charming novelist and can’t write quickly enough for me.”

Thank you Kim!

Over on my Janice Horton blog today, I’m hosting my first Blogiversary, so please do pop over to and join in the fun. There are yummy treats on offer as well as my latest ebook completely FREE on Amazon. Yes, my five star rated novel about a media stalked and disillusioned celebrity chef entitled ‘Reaching for the Stars’ is FREE today and over the weekend. So please help me to celebrate by downloading ‘Reaching for the Stars’ – and if you already have it then why not recommend it to a friend?

I've read both Bagpipes & Bullshot and Reaching for the Stars and I loved them both!

They're great fun reads and I'm waiting anxiously for Janice's next book.
