Three Bits of Gossip From Curmudgeon Avenue

Hi Everyone!

I’ve got a few bits to tell you about Curmudgeon Avenue.

Written by Samantha Henthorn

First off, Book Two, The Harold and Edith Adventures has been turned into an audiobook by the multitalented actor Lindsay McKinnon of Theatre of the Mind Productions.

I’ve had a listen and it’s awesome Lindsay has done a grand job with all the accents and her comic timing is hilarious. The audiobook will be winging it’s way to your ears via Amazon, Audible and iTunes soon or within the 30 days promised by ACX. Can’t wait!


The World (1)

Second, I have finished Book 5! The World Does Not Revolve Around Curmudgeon Avenue is available to preorder for 77p! Release date 30th of September.

Reformed rent burglar Georgina Foote moves back to Whitefield and into number 13 Curmudgeon Avenue. She is desperately seeking Kevin but all she finds is nonsense. Collecting enemies at work and at home, Georgina Foote does not belong here.

Meanwhile, a mass exodus occurs when Wantha Rose, Ricky Ricketts and newbie Krystina moved to Greenmount. They think that the world does not revolve around Curmudgeon Avenue, will they find out that it does?

A denouement of sorts resolves the ghost’s stories when Harold takes up residence in the House of Commons, and Edith reunites with her first husband.

Zandra Bennett’s career takes on a new direction when she unwittingly starts channelling the ghost of Edith in the under-the-stairs space.

We finally get to find out Mrs Ali’s first name, her story and her source of all knowledge.

Wantha and Ricky nearly get married, and we learn why the Rose sisters have such daft names. Their mother, Patchouli is still living the life of luxury, and occasional abseiling with Gil Von Black

Not intended as a cosy read, the characters in this social satire provide an utterly British escape.

Will the nincompoops of Curmudgeon Avenue survive without the street?

I have sent some advanced review copies out to cure me of fear of failure, particularly helpful with Curmudgeon Avenue has been Deborah at and my friend Maggie.


Third bit of goss, Book One, The Terraced House Diaries is going on a blog tour! Arranged by @RandomTTours. Such an honour! Proper bloggers will be blogging about Curmudgeon Avenue from the 31st of August!

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!
