THE SUFFRAGETTE – special offer this week

It’s coming up to the anniversary of the death of suffrage campaigner, Emily Wilding Davison, and her heroic protest at the Epsom Races to try and gain national attention to the women’s cause. As well as my own suffragette relations, she was one of the inspirations behind my novel, THE SUFFRAGETTE: A heartrending story of one woman’s fight for justice and love.

‘Brings a time and place vividly to life and makes compulsive reading.’
Northern Echo

All this week, it’s on at the discounted price of 99p (and 99c in Amazon.com)

If you choose to read it, I hope you enjoy it – let me know what you think.

All the best

Janet

CALL FOR ADVENTURE IN INDIA!

The Tea Planter’s Tour

Don’t miss your chance to experience India in a unique way – visit Kolkata (Calcutta), Darjeeling and Assam in the company of international best-selling author of the India Tea series novels, Janet MacLeod Trotter.

kerala-2580968

The Beast from the East. Storm Emma. Met Office red warnings. They certainly aren’t our idea of adventure. Wouldn’t you rather be surrounded by sprawling tea plantations than frozen winds? Prefer to be wrapped up in memories of the bygone Raj than scarves and gloves? Surely you’d rather slip into an exotic spice market than down another icy path? If this sounds like your idea of adventure too, then hurry! We’ve only a few more spaces left on our group journey through North-East India – and the Raj – this November…

This exceptional small group tour explores East India differently – through the lens of historical novels set in the British Raj. Combine this with the sights and sounds of present day Calcutta, wildlife safaris in Assam, visiting tea plantations, and the extraordinary colourful local life. At each location, Janet MacLeod Trotter will deliver a book reading session from her best-selling ‘India Tea series’ novels, a rare opportunity to bring to life these evocative places.

How many opportunities are there to travel through India with a best-selling author? To find out more, view the virtual itinerary using the link below – but trust us, it’s much better in person.
