Signed copy anyone??

Good morning all, and happy Friday!

I'm happy for a few reasons today, but mostly because finally my second novel "Hope & Jump" is released today on Amazon.
 I'd also like to say thank you to all the lovely people who have requested signed copies of the book, which I would be delighted to do.

If you'd like a signed copy for you or a friend, e-mail me at with your request and I will lovingly pop them out in the post to you (£6.99 + £1.50 p&p).

I'd also like to say a huge thank you for all the support, help and patience everyone has shown/given during the "making" of this book.

Have a great day,

Rocky Road

('Hope & Jump' artwork by Joe Armitage)
Well, after almost 3 years since the publication of my debut novel 'A Love That Makes Life Drunk', finally my 2nd novel 'Hope & Jump' is due for release on Friday 16th September.

It's been a slightly rocky road - moving house...3 times, going back to work...3 days a week...then a promotion, but now that it's finished and I can hold it in my hands and breath in fresh clean pages of a book, I can allow myself a small smile.

I'm really rather happy to see this book in print as it's very sentimental to me. My love of Cornwall is explicit, as is my adoration of all things local, including the people, and those of you who enjoyed 'A Love That Makes Life Drunk' will not be disappointed, as 'Hope & Jump' features all the heat and sweetness that is expected from 'Karen Roderick' the writer.

I really hope you enjoy it, and thank you for months of support and encouragement.


Pre-orders are now available at Amazon 

Geek Dress

I don't know why I keep referring to this dress as 'geeky', because as I'm fairly geeky anyway surely it's no surpris...
