It's been a lot of hard work, there have been tears, laughter (mostly at my stupid typos) but finally it's finished!
I'm pleased to announce that Another Perfect Another is now available to purchase from Amazon and Smashwords. It's the sequel to my debut novel, Heaven Knows This Time, and it continues the story of Angel and Miles as they embark on their relationship together.
Nothing ever seems to go to plan in Angel's life. She discovers that Miles has been hiding a secret from his past and she struggles with the physical and emotional challenges when she discovers she is unexpectedly pregnant with his child.
It's another emotional roller coaster of a book, with an ex trying to stir things up for them and a stranger who is trying to steal Angel's inheritance. Is their love strong enough to carry them through?
I hope you enjoy the book and I'd really love to know what you think. Post a message here or better still write a review. Your comments are very much appreciated.

I'm very pleased to announce that Heaven Knows This Time has now been published and is available to buy from Amazon's Kindle store:
Heaven Knows This Time by Clair Louise Coult
When the shy and quiet, 15 year old Angela Blackman is sent to the head teacher's office she doesn't expect to find live in the form of the 17 year old eccentric millionaire, Simon Wetherall. Upon discovering a shared love for the post punk band Joy Division, Simon sweeps Angela off her feet and they embark on a rather unusual affair, but the course of true love runs anything but smoothly. Angela discovers a whole new circle of friends within the alternative music scene but she finds herself having to grow up fast to deal with the trials and tragedies that fate brings her.
Contains adult themes, strong language and scenes of a sexual nature.
It's been an exciting and nerve wracking journey to get this far and I'm very grateful for the help and support of my friends and family for encouraging me to persue my dream of publishing my own book. Special thanks to my husband Trevor for taking the time to proof read the book for me. So if you find any typos it's his fault :P
I hope you enjoy the story. I'd love to hear your feedback, please feel free to leave your comments or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

I'm not quite sure how it happened but I've written a novel. I know it sounds daft to have written a whole book by accident but that is how it happened. When my husband went away for a long weekend RC car racing in January I had an idea for a story so I started writing, and writing, and I didn't stop until I'd got about 93 thousand words!
The story is quite involved but it's basically about a 15 year old girl called Angela who meets a very rich and handsome boy, Simon, at school. They play truant together after discovering a shared love for the band Joy Division. Their relationship grows and they follow a Joy Division tribute band called Unknown Pleasures. Angel, as Simon calls her falls desperately in love but their relationship is more than a little rocky as they have to deal with some very challenging obstacles. The story deals with young love, the alternative music scene, sex, drugs, grief and suicide.
I'm in the process of editting the book with a view to publishing it for Kindle. In the meantime I've put the first 2 chapters up on a blog if you want to have a peek.
Heaven Knows This Time
I hope you enjoy it and I'd love to know what you think. Constructive criticism is always appreciated :)
