Guest post and giveaway by Jen Silver – Voices in my Head

12 Jun

The giveaway is now closed.

Jen Silver is back with UKLesFic to talk about her new novel, Arc Over Time.  It follows hot on the heels of her debut Starting Over – a tale of simmering passion in the hills and down in the archaelogical dig trenches. Jen is doing a paperback giveaway of Arc Over Time, or, if you missed the first book, a copy of Starting Over if the lucky winner prefers. Details below and over to Jen!


arc over timeThey’re back! The Starling Hill gang, as they call themselves. Instead of lying down quietly on the shelf between the covers of Starting Over, they started clamouring for attention.

Dr Kathryn Moss, a respected archaeology professor – well, I really didn’t expect any trouble from her. She’s usually fairly quiet on the whole, saving her energy for giving lectures and writing academic papers. And she’s happy with things generally. Okay, so it didn’t work out with Ellie and she’s still disappointed about that but the long distance relationship with Denise means she gets regular reminders that she’s not dead from the waist down, yet.

Den is much more vocal. She’s not happy with this LDR arrangement at all. The roving reporter, one time Queen of the Casual Shag, she’s now totally smitten with the professor. She wants commitment but Kathryn’s keeping her at arm’s length and the u-haul is parked in the garage for the time being.

Then there’s Jasmine Pepper. She felt she got short-changed in Starting Over and wanted more than a walk on part. And why should everyone be left thinking she was a class-A bitch? How could I do that to her? Well, Jas, you asked for it. Nothing ever goes quite to plan for Jasmine, and she gets a few shocks along the way, but don’t despair, this is a romance after all.

Ellie and Robin have been a bit pre-occupied (SPOILER ALERT for anyone who hasn’t read Starting Over).  After their trip to Rome, when Robin proposed, Ellie decided to take up painting again. She’s a very talented artist and it’s one of her paintings that threatens to derail any hopes Den has of a lasting relationship with Kathryn.

jensilverMeanwhile Jo and Harry have moved onto a narrow boat on the canal at Hebden Bridge. Jo is doing very well, thank you, making and selling sock puppets and loom bands. And what about our royal skeleton and her partner? Without venturing into the paranormal, I can only say, a mere matter of a few thousand years won’t stop the Queen of the Brigantes from having her say.

All right, guys, you’ve got another book – can I go now?

Actually, no. The voices have started already. ‘Why is she on the cover?’ ‘You can’t leave me here!’ ‘That’s not fair, she’s had all the fun.’

Sigh. Never a dull moment where the Starling Hill gang are concerned. (Am I certifiably nuts? No, just a writer.)


To win a paperback copy of Arc Over Time, or Starting Over, please leave a comment below (as verbose as you fancy or as brief as “Me!”). Or if you’re very shy or comment averse, you can email us at uklesfic at to enter the draw. Good luck!
