My novel Visiting Lilly takes place in the lead up to Christmas so I’ve made a seasonal book trailer. It’s a page turning mystery thriller which can be read at any time of year and is available on Amazon where it’s receiving 5 star reviews.

By the way, it’s readers and reviewers who are calling it a page turner: the feedback I’m having is amazing. One guy told me he hardly ever reads novels, but couldn’t wait for his tea break at work to get back to his ereader to find out what happened next. One woman I spoke to said a scene in Visiting Lilly had her in tears, because it was such an accurate portrayal of a situation she had experienced.

Keep an eye out because before Christmas I’ll be running some discounts and rock botom prices. Perfect for stocking fillers.

There’s still time to enter by rafflecopter draw for a free ebook copy of Visiting Lilly AND a tarot reading.

Come and join in the conversation. Which tarot card would you choose to represent Father Christmas?

Originally posted on Toni Allen Books:

Father ChristmasI don’t know why, but this conundrum crossed my mind earlier today. Which Tarot card does represent Father Christmas? I’m not sure, having never met the man in person, or had the privilege of reading for him. So I’ll have to use deduction and guesswork.

Well, let’s see now.

Tarot King of CupsThe King of Cups is the father figure. He’s warm and friendly, good with children and loves food. That seems like a pretty good start for Santa Claus. Hmm, is he the right card though? The King of Cups tends to show his affection by bestowing lots of quality time and hugs on the people he loves, and isn’t overly keen on showing affection by gifts alone. Sure, he does buy presents, but he’s more likely to bunk off work early to play with his children, then take them out for a bite to eat together, rather than bring home a…

In my interview I talk about why I chose Farnham, Surrey, as a location for Visiting Lilly. You can also read an excerpt in which Frankie Hayward has been warned by people in high places not to talk to Detective Inspector Jake Talbot during his investigation.

‘Mr Hayward.’ He leant forwards. ‘We have a huge dilemma.’

Visiting Lilly by Toni Allen

The other day I had lovely feedback from someone who’s just started reading Visiting Lilly. Part of his enthusiasm was that he lives locally to Farnham, and knows all of the locations, so instantly gained a sense of belonging to the story, and of it being about people he could relate to.

Now, I’m fully aware that not everyone lives near Farnham, Surrey, UK.
For those of you who don’t I shall build a sense of location, periodically adding new photos, so that you too can see the places that DI Jake Talbot and Frankie Hayward visit.

Farnham Police StationOur first stop on this virtual tour of Farnham and surrounding areas is Farnham Police Station, where Talbot works. Built in 1963, it’s now due for demolition. The irony is that I started writing Visiting Lilly way before the police began their scheme of selling off prime location buildings and streamlining…

Visiting Lilly by Toni AllenI’m thrilled to receive a 5 star review for Visiting Lilly from fellow mystery writer Robert J. Ray, author of the Matt Murdock Mysteries.

Robert J. Ray says of Visiting Lilly:

Professional Tarot guru Toni Allen joins the ranks of mystery writers with a debut novel that whisks the reader on a journey in quest of the Astral Plane, where two lovers—a lovely elderly lady in a care home, and an isolated young man who remembers their past—do their utmost best to keep their love alive. Allen’s work is fascinating because she conceals this unlikely search for love beneath the bones of a police procedural. The setting is not hurried, touristy London, but the idyllic outskirts of Surrey. Welcome to the genre!
