I have been rather busy over the summer, but I am delighted to say that everything is finally coming together so that I can share some exciting news. Actually, two bits of exciting news.
The paperback version of The Thief’s Daughter will be released on the 3rd October. It can be pre-ordered on Amazon and from your local bookshop today. After the 3rd October, if you can’t find it on the shelf of your local bookshop, just ask them to order it in for you. I am told that it is perfect for Poldark, historical fiction and historical romance fans. Christmas is not far off, so if you know anyone who likes to read, this might just be the gift you are looking for.
“An evocative and well-researched historical novel that depicts all the rugged beauty and dangerous reality of life in 18th century Cornwall. Tense and suspenseful this is a wonderfully romantic page-turner.” Romantic Novelists’ Association
The Thief’s Daughter was a finalist in the RNA Joan Hessayon Award, awarded the Crowned Heart by InD’Tale Magazine and was awarded a Discovered Diamond badge.
My second piece of news is that the next novel in my Cornish based series, The Captain’s Daughter, will be released on the 3rd October as well.
I have spent the summer preparing the novel for publication. The editing phase is now complete and the book cover will be revealed on Tuesday, 12th September. This novel is very close to my heart and I am delighted that Choc Lit and their Tasting Panel chose to publish it.
The Captain’s Daughter was inspired by Bodmin Moor and a rather grand historical house in Cornwall. In my mind the story is a mixture of Downtown Abbey, Wurthering Heights, Tess of the D’Urbervilles and Far from the Madding Crowd. I originally self-published this novel under a different title and pen name and was delighted when InD’Tale Magazine awarded it a Crowned Heart Award in 2014. I am thrilled that it will now reach a wider audience when it is released as an eBook by Choc Lit next month. If you fell in love with Jack Penhale from The Thief’s Daughter, just wait until you meet the hero in this next book. Watch out for further details and updates on my Twitter and Facebook page.
So that’s my news and I can’t wait to share the cover with you once it has been officially unveiled on Tuesday!
