Marriage Unarranged #BookTour The Final Day!

Can you believe it’s been a week since Marriage Unarranged was officially released?

It has been amazing, and I can’t thank everyone enough for all your support and encouragement though the week – as well as your patience wading through these daily posts, recounting all that has been going on.

I tried to relax a bit more today since we are back at school tomorrow, but it never quite happens, does it? I’ve done lots of reading and sharing posts on Social Media, as well as making several trips to the Summer House as Hubby Dearest was on a mission to rejig the furniture in there! A bit of cooking, some laundry and a smidgen of cleaning, and we are done!

Of course, I had to end the week with a little recap Tiktok video, too!

Marriage Unarranged #BookTour Day Six!

Saturday has been and is pretty much gone now. It’s World Gin Day today, too, did you know that? Might have to raise a glass to me!

Today comprised of getting up earlier than anticipated as Sonu Singh insisted that he needed to be fed RIGHT NOW otherwise he was going to chew at anything that made a noise in the bedroom, cheeky feline! Then I ended up reading and having a tidy-up before dropping Lil Man at this week\s cricket match. Coming home, I had the joyful task of helping to get Lil Man’s revision folder up to scratch for him, as he isn’t the most organised young man. So, three hours of printing, sorting and labelling later, I realised that the binder he had was broken. Lil Princess and I paid an emergency visit to the local Sainsburys to get a new folder, dividers and more printer paper (which is so expensive now, due to another national shortage!). I know how to live, don’t I? We had a Chinese takeout for dinner and chilled out for the evening. I watched My Name is Leon on BBC Iplayer. What a sad film! Have you watched it?

I honestly thought that this week I would be able to balance the release and all it encompasses, as well as some school work, then add some new words to book two. I was a little overconfident in my ability to keep all the plates spinning, what with also being mum-taxi to the kids twice a day! So I made another silly Tiktok! Thought I would share it with you all!

It is day six of the blog tour organised by the lovely Zoe-Lee O’Farrell (Click here for the full details!) and, we have two more lovely reviewers featuring Marriage Unarranged on their blog or Instagram!

Marriage Unarranged #BookTour Day Five!

It’s Friday already, so that means, amongst other things, that I only have a weekend between me and being back in school for work! EEK!

If I am being honest, though, I was actually in school today. I had a load of printing to get done, as well as sorting out a little bit of the classroom, and some errands to run in town, meaning it wasn’t worth the drive back home in the middle (plus, with diesel prices the way they are at the moment, I’d rather stay put, thank you very much!)

Though, I did have a bit of exciting bookmail, today. The author copies of Marriage Unarranged are still in the pipeline, and I am rather impatient, so I ordered one off Amazon, as I was so keen to see what it looked like compared to my self-published version. You interested? Please take a peek at the TikTok I created! There is a minor colour change, as well as slightly different formats to the colour banding at the bottom, and that special Call to Action sticker at the front. Oh, and it is bigger than before, too!

Marriage Unarranged #BookTour Day Four!

Thursday has almost come to an end, marking four days since Marriage Unarranged was released by Spellbound Books. It has been lovely reading reviews, and one, specifically mentioned a book I really enjoyed, earlier this year, comparing the two, and let’s just say, mine came off extremely favourably!

So, today, the school run was the first job of the day, and once I got back. I was good, getting on the treadmill for a speedwalk and a read. (Doesn’t everyone read their kindle while they walk?) A quick breakfast was followed by a little more school work, then I reviewed one book, and finished reading another. Lunch eaten, I had a go at some house cleaning, so the weekend was freer for me, then I headed off, Mum -Taxi, to pick the kids up again. And here I am now, after making dinner for the kids (hubby and I are eating a little later) typing up this recap! Still no new words written, but I know they will come, I can feel it in my bones!

It is day four of the blog tour organised by the lovely Zoe-Lee O’Farrell (Click here for the full details!) and today, one of the posts is an extract, and another is an interview about my writing process!

Marriage Unarranged #BookTour Day Three!

Day three, and I am still flying high, I have to say! The reviews are starting to pop up, and I think paperbacks will hit some doormats soon, too! I think we are teetering between #2 and 3 in the Hot New Release chart for Asian fiction, still, too!

Wednesday, during half term for me, looked like this: dropping the kids off to school, taking an unplanned visit to Lidl for bananas, and coming out with an airfryer, several other things, (and, of course bananas!) getting home, making more work related calls, making lunch (I mastered poached egg!) then reading, and scrolling on my social media! A meeting at my kids school was followed by two and a half hours sat in the car as Lil Man had his cricket practice. I could have taken my laptop, but I ended up reading, instead! A rushed dinner of Chicken Fajitas, and now here I am writing this as I catch up on Eastenders!

Today is the third day of the blog tour organised by the lovely Zoe-Lee O’Farrell (Click here for the full details!) and we have Bookstagram, as well as another lovely review! I was blown away by some of these lovely words people have written about Marriage Unarranged.

Marriage Unarranged #BookTour Day Two!

It was a quieter day in some respects, but , there was still so much happening, which I had to balance along with doing a little school related work! (Day job is still there, Peeps, what can I do?)

As it is Tuesday, I popped my happy announcement on Twitter with the RNA #TuesNews hashtag and got so much love, there, too!

Today is the second day of the blog tour organised by the lovely Zoe-Lee O’Farrell (Click here for the full details!) and we have Bookstagram, as well as another lovely review! I was blown away by some of these lovely words people have written about Marriage Unarranged.

It’s been a manic, but lovely day so far, posting about the release, receiving and responding to the numerous beautiful messages of support I have received for today, too!

Hubby Dearest and I are making the most of it and he took me out to lunch to celebrate!

The book tour also kicked off, and all four of the posts have been lovely, which has warmed my heart ❤
