It has been great to see my book become available to readers in paperback and on Kindle. I have loved reading the reviews, and for those people who I have met that have read the book, it’s been lovely to hear your thoughts on it.

Some of the most interesting thoughts I have heard from readers about The Widow’s Redeemer are those that talk about the peripheral characters. When writing the book I of course enjoyed writing all parts of it and liked all my characters, but never expected my readers to enjoy my side-line characters so much!

People have commented on how they liked Major Deveril and his funny, boyish charm. They have expressed how they would have liked to have seen more of him, and I can understand that as I really like him too!

People have also said, and much more surprisingly to me, that they liked Clarissa, Letty’s mother-in-law. Now that surprises me, not least because I didn’t think I had written her as a very loveable character! She’s rather comical because of her self-pitying moods and silly-nature, and to be honest, I’m not sure I like her in the beginning and perhaps that’s why I’m so surprised others do. Readers have consistently said how they find her funny and more than a surface-deep character. Perhaps it has something to do with her redemption near the end, because that’s what I think she has, like a mini-redemption of her own – though for those who haven’t read The Widow’s Redeemer, you’ll have to read it to find out more details on that score 😉

Anyway, I’m just chuffed to bits to say that The Widow’s Redeemer is now available on the Nook for $3.99 and I wish happy reading to all those who buy it. And, of course, write reviews – like I said, I just love to hear what my readers think about my book 🙂

Published by Philippa Jane Keyworth

Philippa Jane Keyworth, known to her friends as Pip, has been writing since she was twelve in every notebook she could find. Originally trained as a horse-riding instructor, Philippa went on to become a copywriter before beginning a degree in History. A born again Christian, Philippa lives in the south of England with her handsome husband. Philippa has always written stories and believes that, since it is one of her loves and passions, she always will. In her early writing career, she dabbled in a variety of genres, but it was the encouragement of a friend to watch a film adaptation of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice that began her love affair with the British Regency. Since then, she has watched every Regency film and TV series she could get her hands on and become well acquainted with Georgette Heyer's novels which gave her the inspiration to write her own. Both as a reader and a writer, Philippa believes it is important to escape into a world you yourself would want to live in. This is why she writes stories that will draw you into the characters' joys and heartaches in a world apart from our own. Her debut novel, The Widow's Redeemer (Madison Street Publishing, 2012), is a traditional Regency romance bringing to life the romance between a young widow with an indomitable spirit and a wealthy viscount with an unsavory reputation. The novel has been received well by readers and reviewers who have praised the heartfelt story and admirable characters. Her second novel, The Unexpected Earl (Madison Street Publishing, 2014), explores another romance in the Regency era when an impetuous young woman has her life turned upside down by the reappearance of the earl who jilted her six years ago. So, what are you waiting for? Get swept away into another time with characters you will learn to love, and experience the British Regency like never before.
