Books

Welcome To The Book Club

There’s nothing more fulfilling than writing a novel. Losing myself in the lives of the characters is something I take immense pleasure in. As I progress creatively, I keep learning about the types of characters and books I want to write.

This page will be ever updating with my new book releases and novel writing e-courses. It will also pay homage to novels from other authors. You can find all of my recommendations in my book club.

The Book Club

 

This area is regularly updated with book reviews, suggestions and events. In order to write successfully, I truly believe in immersing yourself in as many different novels as possible. This section serves as a culmination of my reading obsession. It’ll hopefully provide a little inspiration for you, too.

Behind The Scenes

 

When Amy Barnes meets international superstar James Matthews, her life flips upside down. One day she’s working in a dead-end job, the next she’s fighting off paparazzi. Follow Amy on her winding journey from girl-next-door to celebrity. It sounds like the dream scenario, but can Amy handle being a celebrity in the age of social media and never-ending selfies? And, is James really the answer to her problems?

Behind The Scenes is a fun-filled how-to guide to navigating the pitfalls of being a twenty-something in the spotlight.

Caroline Allen Behind The Scenes

Inside Number 129

 

Why do I feel so nervous? Eve Leyton questions herself as she’s thrown back into the third year of university. Her best friends hate each other and her new house is something from a horror film!

Determined to make the most of it, Eve throws herself into university life head first, only to land with a bump when she discovers her friends and boyfriend aren’t quite what they seem.

Sick of playing mediator, Eve falls into the path of university heartthrob, Freddie James (and his supermodel girlfriend!)

Inside Number 129 is a fun, romantic comedy about the trials and tribulations of university life and a fumbling how-not-to guide of adolescence!

Upcoming Projects

I’m currently working on three books; the first is another women’s interest novel about bereavement and the emotional rollercoaster of grief. The second is something I’m ghostwriting, and the third is a Guide To The Krays’ London. I’m working on this historical guidebook with my publishers, Pen & Sword. I’ll keep this area updated with tour and releases dates.

I’m happy to send you further information on any projects I’m working on; you’re welcome to get in touch. Similarly, if you’ve got a project you would be interested in collaborating on, please let me know.

Audiobooks

I am trained in recording audiobooks for authors. Generally, I specialise in wellbeing recordings and voiceovers that need a calming approach. If you have an audiobook that you’d like to have recorded, I have all of the equipment to facilitate this and would love to speak to you more about your project.

Ghost Writing

I ghostwrite books on behalf of a select amount of clientele. I only take on projects if I know a lot about the topic at hand. It’s important – both for myself and for you – that I can understand your story. As a result, I suggest an initial consultation followed by a number of ‘discovery days’ in order for us to get to know each other and for me to appreciate your story. Please feel free to contact me for a free consultation.

Proofreading

My experience in writing, ghostwriting and journalism gives me an excellent platform to proofread your novel or any other writing. In my proofread, I look for spelling errors and grammatical mistakes in order to ensure your novel or piece of writing is in the best shape possible for publication. Please contact me if you would like to discuss your requirements.

Let’s work together to release your potential…

Over the past decade, I’ve developed some plans and skills which I believe make me a better writer. My comprehensive pre-writing plans for both fiction and non-fiction books have served me well and I’d like to share them with you.

My e-courses will be interactive experiences – beautifully designed to help you reach your potential. I look forward to welcoming some of you to my e-courses in the very near future.
