Hello! Anyone there? I know, I know… it’s been a while. How’re you doing?
Personally, I’m very confused about all these new WordPress features. And at the moment, it doesn’t take much to confuse me. I’m in the middle of writing a new novel, I’ve got edits of another to figure out and – you might have heard – I’ve got a new book out in July!
Who-hoo!!!! A novel!
It’s a strange time to be
releasing a book doing anything close to normal. Here in the UK we’ve been under vague lockdown orders, which in the past couple of weeks have become even more vague. Shops are shut, my usual coffee shop haunts are shut. In the past two months, I’ve only been out of the house to walk the dog, and I’ve only set foot in three shops over the past two months. What’s it like where you are?
Living on the streets is terrifying and exhausting. Grace’s only comforts are a steady stream of vodka, and a strange little boy who’s following her around.
At nineteen, Grace has already had a child and endured an abusive marriage. But she’s also had her baby abducted by her vengeful husband and been framed as a neglectful mother. Even her own parents doubted her version of the story. So she did the only thing that made sense to her—run away.
The streets are unforgiving. Winter is drawing in. And Grace isn’t prepared for the harsh realities of survival. At her very bleakest, a Good Samaritan swoops into her life and rescues her. With a roof over her head and food in her stomach, she longs to see her baby again.
But nothing ever comes for free.
So, now I’ve dusted off this old thing, I plan to hang around for a bit. Hiatus is officially on hold! After all, I’ve got all these new features to play with, and what else does a busy author juggling three books, including a launch, need but a new distraction…
