My 7th novel, Torment, was published on the 5th August, and its release was supported by some fantastic book bloggers.This post is to say a massive thank you to everyone who helped spread the word about the book via their reviews and the sharing of extracts from the book. Special thanks also go to Kerry-Ann Parsons (Chat About Books,) and Lorraine Rugman (The Book Review Cafe,) for helping with the cover reveal.

Today I’m pleased to be part of the blog tour for Stitched, by Cheryl Elaine. Thanks go to Shell Baker for inviting me. Before my review, here’s the book cover and description:
A patchwork of lies and threads of abuse…Stitched is a gruesome tale of control, fear and brutality. To the outside world, Andrew Brooke is a cop who’s obsessively committed to his job. But behind closed doors, he enforces his dominance and disciplines his wife, Emily, in the most inhumane ways. When his life begins to fall apart and his reputation becomes tarnished, he unleashes his anger and seeks revenge on those who dare to encounter him.
Emily Brooke is left broken by her husband’s hand, with no means of escape. Eventually, though weak and confused, she manages to flee. But is the life she escapes to a better one?
Detective Donavan has his own demons to battle following his wife’s death. Assigned a missing person’s case that leads to a series of brutal attacks, he follows the trail of a serial killer dubbed ‘The Stitcher’ – but will his own dark secrets get in the way of justice being served? Stitched perfectly demonstrates how cruel life – and people – can be.
Over the last few days, the blog blitz that accompanied the publication of You Belong To Me, has been taking place – and what a blitz it was! I wanted to say a HUGE thank you to every blogger who helped spread the word about the book via your reviews, shares, RTs etc.
Below are links to each blogger’s review. I hope you enjoy reading what they had to say about the book:
This will be my final blog post of 2018 and what better way to end the year than reading and reviewing the final instalment of Mel Comley’s Justice series, Toxic Justice. I had seen a lot of positive discussion about this book across social media, and after having enjoyed other books in the series, downloaded a copy. Here’s the book description:
When life gets tough…
Desperation seeps in.

With the suicide statistics among teenagers rising on her patch, DCI Roberts asks Lorne to investigate the reasons behind the victims taking their own lives.
Will the shocking truth Lorne and her tenacious team uncover give the grieving families the justice they deserve? Continue reading →
Today, Tilbury Talks To… Yvonne Bastian. Welcome to my blog Yvonne, please introduce yourself.
I have always loved reading from a very young age. I am originally from Lincolnshire and have lived in several places before finally settling down here in Cornwall and yes there are many, many books that have stayed with me and travelled with me. Over the years my reading taste has changed, I used to read certain genres for a couple of years and then move to something else when I felt the magic dwindling. Now however I read a large range, so from genre binger to genre butterfly. It was about 18 months ago when I started my blog and in that time I have read and reviewed a whole range of different books.
What went through my head when I decided to be a book blogger?
I had no idea there was such a thing and then when I stumbled across this I was so excited. I had spent the previous two years reading quite a few of the classics and didn’t review them, well apart from saying “I really enjoyed this”. This was because the reviews I had seen were so intimidating, people using those big fancy words I didn’t understand, often thinking it was as if I was reading a thesis rather than a review. Though I did write my own thoughts of the book on paper, that is where they stayed. Then at the beginning of 2017 I decided I wanted to read something modern and up to date, that was when I discovered that people wrote reviews that I understood, they conveyed what they liked or loved and why the book worked for them. I realised that this was something that I was already doing on paper, and then the lightbulb moment when I realised this was something that I could do and also wanted to do. Continue reading →
