A few offers that people might be interested in in kindle's 'half term deals':

Journey to the River Sea by Eva Ibbotson is 99p.
The Owl Service by Alan Garner is £1.49.
The Moon of Gomrath by Alan Garner is 99p.
Katy by Jacqueline Wilson is £1.99.
The Phantom Tolbooth by Norman Juster is 99p.
Carry On by Rainbow Rowell is 99p (a sort of gay Harry Potter with less fat shaming and a lot of awesomeness).
Enchanted Glass by Diana Wynne Jones is £1.49.

Thanks Abbey, I bought this entirely based on your review and really enjoyed it! I did feel like the ending could be more satisying (e.g. did Simon ever figure out who his parents were?) but a fun read nonetheless!

I love Enchanted Glass. It's one of my favourite DWJ books.

And Charlotte Macleod mentioned somewhere on this thread, though the last book was awful. She had Alzheimers so I imagine someone cobbled it together from notes.

I have just finished Enchanted Glass and loved it....

I didn't know that about Charlotte Macleod, how sad. Another one like Agatha Christie then....

Yay, glad you enjoyed it! I do like Rainbow Rowell; she writes good characters.

One of my favourites, cestina. I believe they've now made it into a film.

I always seem to be touting my wares on here, :) but my Victorian Charlotte Richmond mysteries are being republished in ebook and paperback and the first two are up on Amazon, with the third to follow shortly. Shiny new covers to replace the purple monstrosity that was the original for Murder Most Welcome, the first in the series. They're £1.99 though.

The touting of your wares came on just the day that I was looking for new books to add to my kindle. Both have now been bought.

Ooh very excited for the 3rd! Will it be available on Kindle too? I loved the first two :)

Thanks, Chris, that's great! And yes, Mrs Helston, The Dead Queen's Garden is also being reissued and will be out in ebook and paperback. Thank you for your enthusiasm.
The old publisher ceased trading and I'd been thinking of republishing them myself but then a newish publisher made me an offer.
My Harriet Quigley mysteries will also be republished and I've just sent off the MS to the publisher.
It's all go round here!
(And my ever-constant plea :heart: - if you feel like doing an Amazon review afterwards, they're always very welcome!)
