Two days ago, this was going to be a straight-forward pre-orders are available post, and then…
I WON A WISHING SHELF BOOK AWARD SILVER MEDAL FOR SMALL FORGOTTEN MOMENTS!
Yes, yes I did.
I was at work all morning, I had time to check my email, but not to share the news, which was so hard and I think I might have concerned a couple of people with my wide-eye grin.
Obviously, authors love all their books equally, but sometimes one idea just stands a little taller over the others.
For me, that’s Small Forgotten Moments – which started life, if you recall, as a completely different story with a completely different title. Jo, the main character, and the portrait which comes to life, are the only things that were transposed from the original story to make this brand spanking new novel.
And now for the thing I thought I’d be telling you today…
CAT & THE DREAMER IS AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER ON KINDLE RIGHT NOW!
Currently it’s only available on Kindle, because I’m not entirely sure what I’m doing – but if I figure it out, I’ll make it available in more places soon. If not, you only have three weeks to wait until it’s out in the world.
This is a refresh/rerelease of my 2012 novella, with a couple of new scenes, at least 2000 more words, and a snazzy new cover.
2012 was the year of the London Olympics, the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, and Manchester City winning the Premier League in a nail-biting race to the final whistle (and my race across town to find a venue showing the second half when the pub we were in switched to the Man United game at half-time).
What memories to do have of 2012? I’d started my first blog the year before – did we know each other back then? Have you just counted the years and realised, like me, how long ago it was?

Aww congratulations on the award win, Annalisa, that’s brilliant.
Hi Suzanne, how lovely to hear from you – I was just thinking I hadn’t seen your name pop up on social media recently. And thank you. I hope your writing is going well.
Thanks Madeline x
Congrats! That’s wonderful.
Thank you Diane!
Woot. Woot. I’m so happy for you, Annalisa. That’s awesome. You’ve got bragging rights on this one;)
I do plan on bragging for a little while, Sandra 😉
Congrats! What amazing news, and well deserved. Good luck with the refresh of Cat and the Dreamer. The new cover looks lovely. 2012 being over 10 years ago feels odd. I remember we watched Super Saturday at the Olympics at my parents’ house and it doesn’t seem that long ago…
Thanks Nick! Oh, Super Saturday – yes. I was home alone so I had no one to squeal with. It was a wonderful day.
