Piccalilli by [Henthorn,   Samantha]

Kindle App Ad

Piccalilli Kindle Edition.

Two days ago I self published my short children’s novel Piccalilli for 8-10 year olds about Lillian, a girl who is missing her brother Joe, a soldier in World War One.

I originally started writing this story for my mum and my nana (the original Piccalilli) but as I got to the end of the first five hundred words,  I realised the story is for children.

Update 4/11… today I have added a new cover. When Amazon have finished altering this for me, I am going to press the ‘advertise’ button and see what happens. With remembrance day coming up, and because the story was inspired by my great uncles who died in the first world war, I had an idea to try and sell enough copies to get me through the £100 threshold (Amazon don’t pay writers until their book has sold a certain amount) and then donate this to the British Legion. Unfortunately, I think I have left it a bit late this year, as there is only one week to go. Because it’s such a long shot, I sent a personal donation instead to the British Legion.

Welcome! Thanks for visiting my author blog. I write every day, I read every day, so we most likely have lots in common! I currently have seven books available on Amazon '1962', 'Piccalilly' 'Quirky Tales to Make Your Day' and the Curmudgeon Avenue series. I live near Manchester UK with my fabulous husband and wonderful, gorgeous grownup daughter, two cats and one dog. I write three types of blog; 1) Fiction written by myself and accompanied by one of my suitable photos or sketches. 2) Ramblings and amusing observations on life. I do not tend to write about anything serious (but admire those that do). 3) NEW! Book reviews. Although my priority is completing my next novel, if I like something I will share it. If I don't have anything nice to say, however, I won't say anything at all. Please see 'contacts' on menu. Sharing is caring, and so is reciprocation!
