Beginnings by Helen J. Christmas is going on tour with Rachel's Random Resources in January. Before that on 2nd December we have a 1 day blog blitz to help promote Beginnings in time for Christmas. 

You are welcome to take part in both or just one of these promotions. The 1 Day blitz is on 2nd December 2017 and the 7 Day Blog Tour is from 5th to 11th January 2018.  Reviews and promo posts are available on both, and extracts are also available for the 1 Day Blitz. 

If you wish to participate in either please contact me on with your name, blog name, preferred post type and availability. 

In addition, due to Beginnings having a price drop from 27th November to 3rd December, I am running a Daycause campaign to go live at 10am on the 27th November to promote the price drop by getting the message out to as many people as possible and your support on this campaign is appreciated. Not sure what a Daycause campaign is, then take a look at my FAQ?

Beginnings is a romantic thriller set in the criminal underworld of 1970s London. Eleanor Chapman is 16. She has no idea her father is employed in a world of organised crime until the day he is forced to go on the run, leaving her at the mercy of dangerous people.

Her life is spiralling out of control yet on the night she plans to escape, she stumbles across a mysterious prisoner. His name is Jake, a rock musician from Holland and he has a contract on his life.

Their daring escape across London eventually draws them into a place of hiding before Jake’s chilling story begins to unfold. He was the one vital witness to a sinister scene leading up to the death of a British MP and now those responsible want him silenced. As two young people, thrown together by fate they develop intense feelings for each other. It does not take long for Eleanor to realise that she will do anything possible to keep Jake alive.

Their tender love bond keeps you turning the pages as they live on a knife edge, desperate to escape London. Will they outrun the deadly enemies who stalk them? Or are the people at the top more powerful than they think?
