As some readers will have realised from this review, the print version of Sweet Encore contains material that was not in the original e-book. This includes a whole new chapter, where I take Pierre-Antoine to England, entitled 'A Typically English Experience: From Pratt's Bottom to Topsham'.
But those who bought the e-book can get the updated version – which in line with the reader feedback I received has more about people and less about places – by following the instructions below:
1. Sign into your Amazon account
2. Scroll down to the section 'Digital Content'
3. Click on 'Manage Your Content and Devices'.
3. Select Settings.
4. Select Automatic Book Update and select ‘On’. This will ensure that you receive an update of all your books, including Sweet Encore.
I had hoped to move things on and make Sweet Encore more of a travelogue than a personal memoir. But I now know that readers preferred the narrative drive of the previous books.
I also realised that very few writers are skilled enough to make a visit to a cathedral in Portugal entertaining – and unfortunately, I am not one of them.
But I've learned some important lessons for future books...
