Fleece Bedding

Cozee Home bedding and my book deal


Hello again!

This week I have some VERY EXCITING NEWS! Well, it’s very exciting for me, so I hope you will share in my celebrations. Read on to the end of this blog to find out what it is…but first some work stuff to share with you!

When I started at QVC (nearly two years ago now, I can’t quite believe it!), I discovered Cozee Home bedding and completely fell in love. It is fleece bedding and quite simply the cosiest, cuddliest, warmest, snuggliest linen I have ever slept in. Not only have I now bought numerous sets for my own house, but I have given it as gifts to lots of relatives including my mum (who will now sleep in nothing else, summer and winter), my father in law and my niece. I want EVERYBODY to have it, it’s wonderful! Instantly warm as soon as you get into bed (none of that horrible cold “sheet shock”), really quick to dry when washed and it doesn’t even need to be ironed.

Fleece Pillow

So I’m delighted to see it back for the new season, with loads of new styles and a fantastic Today’s Special Value on Monday 29th September. It’s a four-piece, reversible duvet set (a sheet, a duvet cover and two pillow cases) – the duvet cover and pillow cases are spotty on one side and striped on the other, with a stripy sheet, so you get two different looks. Plus, it comes in three great colours – you can see the taupe above and there’s also duck egg and rose. If you’re yet to try fleece bedding, give it a go! My husband thought it sounded horrible when I first brought it home, but now he loves it as much as I do.

And something else which is very exciting indeed – this year for the first time there will be Cozee Home onesies! They are fantastic, so soft and cosy. I suspect I may actually LIVE in mine all winter. We had a customer event at QVC last week (lovely to meet so many of you there!) and Debra our Cozee Home guest was modelling one in animal print – I WANT ONE! (Below is the photo of Debra and I with Suzie from Northern Nights and the fashion guest Carla Lazlo).


Right – onto my news: while I was still working at GMTV six years ago, I started writing a murder mystery novel. When I left the breakfast show to go freelance, I thought I’d have time to finish it, but work became so frantic that the book was put to one side. This year, I finally took it out again, dusted it off and got it finished. Then two weeks ago, after nervously starting to send it off to literary agents and publishers, I found myself in the frankly astonishing position of being offered book deals by THREE different publishing companies. Fortunately I had by then acquired myself a wonderful literary agent who took over the reins and led me in the right direction. The result? I am still slightly in shock but thrilled to announce that I have signed a three book deal with the fabulous Accent Press, home to some of the biggest names in women’s fiction. The first of my crime novels will be released in 2015, with two more in the same series to follow. It’s a childhood dream come true, and I can’t tell you how delighted, thrilled and happy I am!

Publishing Agreement

So – my busy life is about to get even busier with two more novels to write. How fabulous! What do you do when a dream comes true, eh? Dream more dreams, that’s what. Dream BIGGER. Watch this space! Thank you so much to those who have already sent me lovely Twitter messages (I am @jackiekabler). I can’t always answer every message, but I do my very best. Have a fantastic week.

Love Jackie xx

    Hi Jackie,
    I didn’t see any QVC yesterday – sorry! – but I am looking to the Onesies. I’ve never had one but I think I may be tempted come November :)
    Well done on your book deal – I enjoy autobiographies and since I was a teenager, I’ve loved crime stories. I look forward to being a purchaser of your books!
    Good things come to good people and you’re definitely one of those!
    Take care,
    Beth XXX.
