Winter 2016 Update

It’s been a while since I’ve posted and my apologies but I’ve hardly had time to pause for breath recently.

tgwl-new-pbIt’s been an amazing few months as THE GIRL WHO LIED hit the #1 spot on Amazon UK Kindle, got to #5 in the American Kindle charts and became a USA Today best seller.

Thursday 17th November sees the release of the paperback, which I’m delighted is going to be available through not only all the usual on-line platforms but also at W H Smith and Asda! I can’t believe after all the years of dreaming about my book being on the shelf of a bookshop, it’s actually going to happen. Needless to say, I shall be stalking said shops to do some serious book spotting.

I spent the summer writing my new novel which is due out in January. Since submitting it in September, I’ve been dealing with feedback and edits.

The visual for the January release has undergone a transformation, not only has the cover been changed but the title too. In publishing speak, it’s now more commercial. For me, I did like my previous cover and title but this cover, I feel, reflects the story more both in terms of the image and title. Here it is …


The blurb hasn’t been finalised but this will give you a good idea of the set-up.

Sister, Sister

Clare : Intelligent and loyal or paranoid and jealous?
Alice : Loving and kind or manipulative and devious?

Reunited after many years following the breakdown of the family unit, Clare and Alice reacquaint themselves in adulthood, but as events take a sinister turn and nothing is at it seems, everyone must decide who to believe.

Two sisters. One truth.

It’s available for pre-order through Amazon via this link

I’ve embarked on NaNoWriMo this year but have been juggling it with edits so I’m not sure I will hit the 50k word target by the end of the month, but it has certainly kick-started my next WIP.

And finally, Wednesday 15th November is the RNA‘s Winter Party & Industry Awards. Myself and fellow Romaniacs were delighted to win the Media Star Award last year and are looking forward to presenting this year’s winner with their award.

  2. Hello Ms. Fortin,

  3. Dear Sue Fortin,
    The Girl Who Lied was a amazing book I couldn’t put it down.
    I absolutely loved Erin’s and Kerry’s relationship.
    I was wondering when does your book The Cuckoo come out? I read a couple of pages of it and I just can’t wait to get my hands on it.

    1. Hi Autumn, thanks so much for letting me know how much you enjoyed The Girl Who Lied. I’m delighted you loved Erin and Kerry – I miss them! Just to let you know that The Cuckoo was retitled and is now called Sister, Sister which was released at the beginning of January. Do hope you enjoy it.
      Thanks again
