My first published novel in FIVE years, Orphan Sisters is out on pre- release TODAY!
I mean the official release date of the mass market paperback is still 21st September 2017 but today the e-book is available to download! Yipeeeeeeee!
It’s actually out there and I don’t think I can believe it!
It’s been a long and emotional five years.
I lost three members of my immediate family, left a job I had worked at for 12 years, moved countries and through it all, I carried on writing. One of the manuscripts I wrote during the first part of this hiatus was indeed Orphan Sisters. My agent at first did not find a home for it so I simply carried on writing. And writing. And writing. A few manuscripts later, Orphan Sisters was sold to Ebury at Penguin/ Random House, proving that as a writer anything can happen! So Orphan Sisters will finally get ‘her’ moment to shine whilst the other manuscripts wait in the wings (or in the external hard drive of my computer). Some of them will also one day (soon) get their time to shine, some never will. That’s the nature of publishing. It’s a tough business but I love it!
Five years is a long time.
But through it all, I never gave up. I KNEW I’d be published again one day. I knew this was the path leading to the purpose God has set out for me. So I persevered and here I am. A new novel!
Champagne and book launches will be on hold until September, but for now, I will celebrate this milestone with a Coca Cola toast and a prayer of thanks.
If you take the ‘subtle as a sledge hammer ‘ hint and go off and download my book, please leave a review. I’d really like to know what people think of my 5th book. Seriously, I would.
Wow, I still can’t believe ‘she’s’ out there!!!!!!!!
