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 http://amzn.to/2eU3y2b

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.

Newsletter and Revamped Website/Blog

For the past few years I’ve been running a blog and website separately to one another, which has worked fine, although did give me some continuity in design issues and took up more time having to switch from one format to the other to make sure all the information was up to date. Bringing them both to one place was the logical solution – not only does it save me time, keeps everything looking the same, but it saves me money too. Not sure why I didn’t do this before.

I’m also setting up a newsletter as part of the make-over. The newsletters are intended to keep readers up to date with everything that is happening in my writing world, advance news, early previews and giveaways. If you’d like to sign up, please click the Sign Me Up! button below.

To kick start the newsletter, I’m going to be giving away a signed paperback of THE HALF TRUTH and a lovely ribbon bookmark to anyone who signs up between now and the end of March. One winner will be picked at random and notified via email.
