Update on Penny – publication delayed on next historical fiction book

Hi everyone,

This is a post I tried my best to avoid making but the truth is that sometimes life gets in the way of the best laid plans.   I had hoped to release Penny yesterday.  Unfortunately due to illness I haven’t been able to work very much this month and the result is a delay in publication.

Penny will now hopefully be released by June 30th.  Although a historical fiction book, I want to make sure the details are true to that era.

I am very sorry and know from wonderful comments and emails that many of my readers are looking forward to reading the next book in the Women and War series.  I sincerely apologise for the delay but rather than release a half ready book, I want to make sure it is the best I can offer.  I owe everyone that including myself :-).  Thank you very much for all of your reviews, comments and emails. You have no idea how much your kind words mean to me.    I just hope you all love Penny as much as you loved Gracie.



  1. Keith L Lueneburg :

    Thanks for writing!

  2. Is there any indication when Molly will b released?

    • Hi Pat, thanks for getting in touch. I have actually stopped saying when Molly will be out as I keep having to push it back. I am not allowed to write on laptop for more than 15 minutes a day so it is very slow going. I hope to get it out soon (and the others that are swimming around in my head.) I am the least patient person I know so appreciate that I am asking a lot from my readers keeping them waiting so long. Ellie xx

  3. I have just finished reading penny which I purchase a hour after finishing gracie best two books I have read for a long while would love to read a follow up of the two meeting up again xxxx

    • Thank you so much Margaret for putting a big smile on my face 🙂 Molly, the third book should be out soon – it has been edited and is currently being proofread again 🙂 Harriet makes an appearance in book 3. Penny and Gracie are pushing for an appearance in book four. I will definitely be writing about their reunion at the end of the war. I am so pleased you enjoyed the series so far. Thank you so much for taking the time to let me know. Elliexx
