The Secrets Between Us Blog Tour

As part of the release of The Secrets Between Us, my wonderful publicist Hannah has put together a blog tour!

Writing is a lonely business, and the first weeks of new book’s release can feel especially daunting, before you’ve quite used to the idea of other people reading your words… So I’m grateful for the support and hard work of bloggers, readers and reviewers who all help to kick-start a book’s sales and get the word out there. I’ll share links to the individual blog posts on here as and when they are published.

Many thanks again all; I owe you a glass of wine! (Or a cake. Or both).

Cover Reveal: The Secrets Between Us

It seems like yesterday that I was going through the page proofs for my new novel with a red pen, thinking “well, I’ll have a few months at least to get used to the idea of this being a real book”. But then, a surprise came through from my publisher: it wouldn’t be months to wait at all. In fact, they were going to be publishing the ebook on the very first day of 2018! (Although you’ll have to wait until April 2018 for the paperback, I’m afraid.)

The team have been working hard over the past few weeks to make sure the book is ready in time, from page proofs to cover copy, to – of course – the cover itself.

So, I’m delighted to be able to share with you all the cover for my third novel, The Secrets Between Us

A gripping mystery with a heart-breaking revelation, The Secrets Between Us is a sublimely satisfying story of lost love, betrayal and the dangers of war.

High in the mountains in the South of France, eighteen-year-old Ceci Corvin is trying hard to carry on as normal. But in 1943, there is no such thing as normal; especially not for a young woman in love with the wrong person.

Fifty years later, Annie is looking for her long-lost grandmother. Armed with nothing more than a sheaf of papers, she travels from England to Paris in pursuit of the truth. But as she traces her grandmother’s story, Annie uncovers something she wasn’t expecting, something that changes everything she knew about her family – and everything she thought she knew about herself…

The Secrets Between Us will be released on January 1st 2018, so if you’re looking for something to read while hiding in bed with a hangover, this one might be the book for you! It’s available to preorder now (as an ebook for ÂŁ4.99 and a paperback for ÂŁ6.99). If you’re interested, please do pre-order; it really does help authors immensely.

The book is currently up on NetGalley, for any bloggers and reviewers out there! Keep an eye out for promotions too, which should be running around the release date.

This has been – so far – the hardest book to write, and I’m pretty nervous about how it’s going to be received by readers… But I’ll just have to wait and see, and hope that people enjoy it.

More from me later!

Anyway, to celebrate the book’s release, those splendid folk at Transworld have organised a blog tour with some fantastic bloggers, staring on Monday 20th. Here’s the schedule, ain’t it pretty?
