The Captain’s Daughter Is Out in Paperback Today!

As of today, The Captain’s Daughter is now available in paperback! It can be ordered online or from your local bookshop. If they don’t have it in stock, just ask your local bookshop to order it in for you.

The Captain’s Daughter was inspired by the kitchens and servants’ quarters of Lanhydrock House, in Cornwall, and the rugged landscape of Bodmin Moor. It is about trust, acceptance, betrayal and the true meaning of family, but at its core is an enduring love felt by a man for one woman – The Captain’s Daughter.

This novel is the second book of The Cornish Tales Series. Although all the books in this series are stand-alone tales and can be read in any order, they are linked by family and the descendants of Jenna, the heroine of the first book in the series, The Thief’s Daughter.

Seeing your own book in print for the first time is an emotional moment.  I have to admit, I was a little nervous as I was unsure how the cover of the ebook version would transfer to the printed page. I think you can see the relief on my face when I catch a glimpse of the cover as I open the box. As always, my publisher, Choc Lit, had done a fabulous job.

As a reader, I have to admit that there is nothing quite like holding a book in my hands or seeing it on the coffee table waiting for me to read some more of the story inside. I keep my favourite books so I can revisit their tales at a later date. It is strangely comforting to see them sitting on my bookshelf, like ornaments and keepsakes, each one reminding me of the time I bought it and read it for the first time.

As a writer, it is thrilling and humbling to know that somewhere a reader will feel the same about one of my novels. The audio book version will be out in the Autumn.

If you are a South West of England retailer who would like to stock authentic Cornish fiction for your customers, The Captain’s Daughter can be ordered from Tor Mark, the book distributor for the south west.
