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 £4.99 and a paperback for £6.99). 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!

Where the Wild Cherries Grow: ebook release

I’m going to jump on the bandwagon with the sentence that everybody is saying today: I can’t believe it’s March already!

We’ve officially left February behind, with its long, grey days of neverending winter. Now, the daffodils and irises are out in my garden, the blossom is starting to froth on the trees and spring is on the way.

And I have some exciting news for readers with kindles and other e-readers, which is that my latest novel Where the Wild Cherries Grow is scheduled to be released in e-book version early, on 23rd March!

It’s currently available to pre-order on Amazon, in ebook (£4.99) and paperback.

I’m afraid that paperback readers will have to wait until the official release date of 15th June 2017 – sorry! – although eagle-eyed shoppers may be able to find early editions in WH Smith Travel shops from April. I can promise too that there’ll be all sorts of exciting content, interviews, articles and recipes appearing between now and then.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of my readers for their patience regarding the publication of this book; as you may know, it was originally intended to be published last year, but for various reasons (ah, the mystical world of publishing) has been delayed. I’m so excited that it will finally be making its way onto shelves, it feels like I’ve been waiting a long time. I can’t wait to pass it on to new readers.

Thanks again, and more from me soon!
