Jenny Chapman, Goodreads Author
Author of The Tree with a Golden Heart, A Surprisingly Fluffy Bird, and The Magical Midwinter Star

Algy is delighted to announce that his assistant has finally got round to creating an official “Goodreads Author” profile. (Note: Goodreads are currently attributing some titles to her which she did not write, but this should be sorted soon).

So if you use Goodreads, please do connect with her there:

And a wee reminder to those friends who downloaded the free Kindle version of “A Surprisingly Fluffy Bird” last weekend… a line or two of review, either on Amazon or on Goodreads, would be very much appreciated.  Reviews help Algy’s books find more readers, and help potential readers understand more about what kind of books they are. Thank you :)
