Saffina Desforges – what is she doing?


It’s been a few days since I blogged (and for very good reason, books don’t write themselves you know) and I thought I might just put up a random update;

We have just hit 50,000 sales for Sugar & Spice on Amazon alone since January 2011. That is pretty incredible considering we set ourselves a target of 150 a month from March!

Last month alone, we sold just under 21,000 books in the UK. Just wait a second while that statement sinks in…

The US edition of the book Sugar & Spice (.com) Sugar & Spice (UK) is slowly starting to take off too. We can now say that we have 2 books in the Top 100 charts on Amazon UK!

We had a very exciting phone call last night too. More on that at a later date.

We are hoping to have Book One of the Rose Red Series Snow White released by the end of July. Check back here for a sneak preview of the new cover in the coming few weeks; in the meantime, you can drop in on Ella’s blog for some juicy goss: Rose Red the inside story

On top of all that, as soon as Snow White goes live, we will be completing Equilibrium: First Blood Book One of a dark, adult, Urban fantasty trilogy.

Phew, did I miss anything??

Some people say that writing is a solitary pastime. Well not for me it isn’t, not with a co-writer and so many characters to keep me company.

One hundred and thirty four days ago, nobody even knew we had written a book, now look!

They also say that you should stick to one genre – I say, “I have never done as I was told.”

Watch this space…


PS. Look out for a forthcoming article in The Sunday Telegraph mentioning Sugar & Spice.
