I’ve done it. I’ve finally signed a publishing deal with London based, Legend Press for my second book and I couldn’t be more thrilled!
The Truth Will Out, the second book in the DCI Helen Lavery series, will be published on the 1st April 2014. Here’s what they had to say in their announcement today. And what is more, they have offered me a London launch party! So get out your best bib and tucker, I would love to see all of you there. And, for my special friends abroad, we’ll keep the party going online so you don’t miss out.
Shortlisted for the 2011 Bookseller Independent Publisher of the Year, Legend Press claim to be dedicated to ‘ensuring the book remains a product of beauty, enjoyment and fulfilment’. What I really like about them is that they still accept unsolicited manuscripts, despite only releasing around fifteen fiction titles a year, making them a great supporter of new writers.
This wonderful news has come just as I feel my way through the cobwebs and back into the writers’ den. It’s great to be back and so exciting to have another launch to look forward to, especially a party – yay!
This writing journey is a roller coaster ride of ups and downs and I’m quite aware that I’d never have got this far without all of the support from friends, family and all those who helped with the research. In particular I’d like to extend huge gratitude to my beta readers – Rebecca, Susan, Kev and Kate who helped to make this novel what it is.
I’m off to engage Mr Bollo in a little dance around my lounge to celebrate. I look forward to sharing the blurb, cover art and release details with you over the forthcoming months.
