The first reviews are coming in for my second psychological thriller THE FRIEND and I mean it when I tell you - this never gets old!
This is my fourth published book - my second in this new genre - and I should be getting used to this. But the truth? I learn that the excitement and the nerves, launching a new book into the world, simply never change.
It just feels such a huge privilege to have people reading your work. So my thanks again to the many, many readers who have been kind enough to get in touch with feedback on my debut thriller I AM WATCHING YOU. It means so much to hear from you - and I really hope you will like the second book too. (THE FRIEND is out on March 22 but is going out to bloggers and reviewers right now - hence the excitement of early feedback!)
Meantime, I have bubbles on standby (for the end of dry January!) to toast so much great news in my writing life. Followers on social media may already know that sales of I AM WATCHING YOU have now passed 200,000 and my fabulous publisher Thomas & Mercer has now signed me for two more psychological thrillers. I could not be more excited about this and huge thanks go to my agent Madeleine Milburn and her team and to my editor Jack Butler and the whole fabulous gang at Thomas & Mercer.
I feel one very lucky writer just now. So here's wishing you a wonderful weekend and all good things in your own writing and reading world.
Turns out, dreams do come true...
