Heidi, thank you so much for not only being a beautiful storyteller, but also opening up a magical space where authors and readers can connect. You are the very definition of what a writer should be, and we’re all immensely grateful as well as happily inspired by you. Congratulations on the publication of Underneath the Christmas Tree – I can’t wait to cosy up and read it! Abi (author of the Life Is Yours Trilogy and life-long avid reader).
My message for Heidi-Jo is “I love reading your books Heidi and was thrilled when you included Beccles as a location. Your stories are heartwarming and I look forward to many more to follow. Also it’s so lovely that your so proactive in the group, which is so friendly and inclusive. Warmest wishes xx” – Deborah Donovan
Despite a hectic schedule to produce two wonderful books every year, Heidi is so generous with her time, engaging with her readers on social media, over Zoom, publishing a newsletter and a blog, not to mention all the other publisher engagements, blog tours and podcasts. Thanks to her books and mentioning the Heidi Swain and Friends – A Facebook Book Club in A Taste of Home, I have discovered a wonderfully supportive group of fellow readers with similar tastes in books, brilliant recommendations and fantastic publication day parties for other authors too. And that’s the thing, not only is Heidi generous with her time, she is also incredibly generous with her support for other authors, especially indie authors. I can’t think of anyone more deserving of their fantastic success. Long may you continue to bring us heart warming tales of love, friendship and family, set in the gorgeous communities of Wynbridge, Wynmouth and of course Nightingale Square in Norwich. Congratulations on your latest Christmas Triumph and I hope you have some time to enjoy the success of Underneath the Christmas Tree before you have to return to Nightingale Square. Much Love Tania xxx – Tania Curtis
Heidi I had the pleasure of getting a copy of Christmas underneath the tree from NetGalley and was gripped from start to finish and as I mentioned on the group zoom call, I was enthralled with Ned and would love to meet his character, passionate, loyal and gorgeous to boot! Your books have given me hours of enjoyment, reading them is the highlight of my day! I still have more to read too and I am in no doubt they are all just as good. Keep doing what you’re doing and keeping us readers happy 😃 – Claire Rowlands
Happy Publication Day Heidi! I hope you enjoy your magical day just as much as we enjoy your wonderful books and festive cheer. Thank you for bringing the sparkle to Christmas – transporting us to beautiful places and loveable characters. Christmas isn’t Christmas without a Heidi Swain book under the tree! Love from Tea Leaves and Reads xx – Katy Baldwin
