Follow my Heart is born

It's one of those milestone moments in life that is entirely appropriate to share with you all.
I'm excited to announce the publication of  Follow My Heart by Frances Lawson. It details why and how I came to leave New Zealand to start a new life in France.  The adventures have been ... unexpected and out of the ordinary.
This book outlines how to dismantle a life in New Zealand and begin a new one at the other end of the earth. It's a story of hardships, loss, naivety, a search for love and belonging, with hope gluing it all together. Sometimes dark, sometimes hilarious, it's an honest and intimate insight into the realities and consequences of following your dream. It includes information on moving to France if you are not an EU citizen, negotiating French administrative processes, surviving French men and exploring one of the most fascinating countries in the world.

This book reveals a lot about me, my private life and, hey, there's stuff in here some of you may remember, because you experienced some of it with me, or you have followed my blog for the past four years. Being an indie author is hard because no-one knows you. I really need your help to make this a success. That'll only happen if people know it's out there, and if readers post reviews. So I'm running a promo.

This month, to celebrate the launch, I'm giving away a fabulous Kindle Fire HD e-reader tablet in glorious colour to someone, somewhere, who buys my book on, either as a paperback or as a Kindle e-book, or on and writes a review. Just forward me a copy of your book receipt, I'll check the reviews online and pop you in the draw. The review is essential for the draw as books lacking reviews simply never sell.
Please buy the book, write a review before 17 July, awarding the stars you think it deserves, and you will be in the draw to win the Kindle Fire HD, PLUS you'll be creating a little more history; helping me to become a successful author.
