tl;dr I go nuts.
My third novel, Love Will Tear Us Apart, was published yesterday. For my third go around, you might expect that I was fairly relaxed. Or at least professional. The truth is less impressive. And as I’m one half of the podcast team the Honest Authors, I figured I’d just spill the beans this time. So here’s my publication day diary, in all its horror.
I can barely believe it but the day is finally here. I had the idea for Love Will Tear Us Apart for a long time and I’d actually written the first few chapters before I submitted Try Not to Breathe to agents… I was the mother of three pretty young kids when I wrote those first lines, which never changed through the drafts.
If you’ve not pre-ordered yet and would like to, please do! The book has a pre-order price guarantee so even if the price goes down between now and release, you’ll be charged the lower price.
I’m so excited to see this book out in the world!
To celebrate its UK launch on 7 June, I’m giving away three signed copies of Love Will Tear Us Apart.
“One of the most moving and involving books I have ever read… just perfect. I absolutely loved it.” – Gillian McAllister
