Saying Goodbye to Warsaw – my new book now available in paperback and ebook formats!
09/10/2013Posted by on
My newest book is finally available! Hurrah! And there’s free copies going, er, free.
For this particular book, I delved back into the realms of historical fiction. Set in the Warsaw Ghetto during World War II, it’s a story about the struggle for survival that the Jews had to endure every single day. At the hands of their Nazi tormentors they battled against starvation, disease, and deportations to concentration camps… until some of them decided to fight back.
Anyone willing to leave a review of some kind on Amazon can make use of the Smashwords code below for a free digital copy. I’m also giving away five paperback copies, so anyone who wants to be in with a chance of winning can leave their email address in a comment below.
As ever, I owe thanks to many people for helping me out with the editing. OCD Reader is one of them and she is bloomin’ marvellous, as are Patti, Ignite, Elle, Lindsay, Joo, Tonya, and Amy Hildebrand from Goodreads, along with many other people in the UK Amazon Kindle group.
Please feel free to help me spread the word by making liberal use of the Facebook, Twitter, etc. sharing buttons at the very bottom of this post…!

You can get a taster for the book by scrolling down past the cover image and reading the post called Cattle.
Like any girl who is loved by her family, Abigail Nussbaum loves to chase butterflies, enjoys lying on her back looking for shapes in the clouds, and happily teaches young children to make daisy chains.
In the eyes of certain people, however, Abigail has committed a heinous crime. The year is 1940; the place is Poland; Abigail happens to be Jewish.
Along with half a million other Jews, Abigail and her family are evicted from their home and forced to live in the bombed out ruins of Warsaw, the Polish capital.
Although a handful decide to fight back, is the uprising strong enough to save Abigail’s spirit?
