Many thanks to everyone who has downloaded my new book In The Shadows (Unfinished Business #5). I do hope you enjoy it. This is my last book but only for 2018! Plenty more books to come next year.

The first book I will release in 2019 is Journeyman, the second book in the Raven series. These two books will also be released as audio books thanks to a two-book deal I signed with WF Howes. I'll keep you updated on when they'll be released.

Following Journeyman will be The Blagger's Code, the first book in a brand new contemporary crime series set in Blackpool about a criminal family struggling to get a foothold in the underworld, sort of opposite to the Maguires and Laws. This will be followed by the thirteenth Dividing Line book and the sixth Unfinished Business book. So plenty more to come. 2019 promises to be an exciting year!

To be in with the chance of winning the opportunity to be a character in a short story I'm going to write about Ryan and Rachel's wedding, please see my Facebook page The Books of Heather Atkinson for more details! Competition ends the evening of Saturday 28th July 2018!

Ryan and Rachel are married but I never put the actual wedding in any of the books and as I have been asked to write this scene, I thought a competition would be a good way to do it.

To all those people who keep insisting on putting spam comments on my blog advertising their wares, I must inform you that your comments don't actually get onto my blog. I pre-approve all comments before they are posted so the only person actually reading your messages is me, seconds before I push the reject button. The only time you're wasting is your own. If you wish to advertise your services, do what the rest of us have to do and pay a legitimate service to do it instead of highjacking someone else's. Thank you.

My novel, Lady Maskery (which was only the second book I ever wrote), has had a good edit, a beautiful new cover and a new title - Nightfall. It's a paranormal novel but also an historical crime/romance.

Here's the link to the book on Amazon:

Dividing Line in Paperback!

I am delighted to announce that the first Dividing Line book is now available in paperback form priced £7.99! Here is the link https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1497318815

Each book in the Dividing Line series is getting a new cover, as well as an edit. Four books already have new covers and the rest are coming along, thanks to a very talented artist. This is proving to be a laborious process, particularly the editing. Eventually every book in the series will be available in paperback but it is going to take some time. I'm just so pleased that these books are finally going to be available in hard copy, available through Amazon :) xx
