Psst! Want to know the title of my next book?!
Last time I wrote to you I was in the middle of rewriting the final scene of my new domestic thriller. I'm happy to report that the new ending is now finished and I'm slowly working my way through the final edits.
If all goes to plan, the book should be out before the end of the month. I wanted you to be the very first to see the cover. And so, without further ado, here it is...
Like the covers of my first two, it's been designed by the super-talented Stuart Bache from Books Covered. I love how he's kept the blue and yellow theme going.
I'd love to know what you think! And to whet your appetite, here's the blurb:
As a successful businesswoman, wife and mother, Cleo Cooper has the things most people can only dream of: an idyllic riverside home, two beautiful children and a lavish lifestyle.
But when her three-year-old daughter Immy disappears during a family barbecue, Cleo’s life starts to unravel.
A massive hunt for the missing girl is soon underway, but when police start probing into the Coopers’ life, it becomes apparent that everyone has a secret to hide.
I'm really proud of this book and I can't wait to send it out into the world. I'll keep you posted on the publication date.
In other news, back at the beginning of December I set myself the challenge of running three miles, three times a week throughout the winter.
I'm not a big fan of running in the cold, and last winter I found it really hard to stay motivated. It was usually too wet, or too windy, or too muddy [or all of the above!] to go out.
But this winter I was determined not to be a wimp, so I drew up a chart and shared my goal with everyone over on my Facebook and Instagram pages.
Being able to tick each run off, and knowing I was accountable, gave me the kick up the backside I needed whenever I began talking myself out of going.
This morning I completed my 36 winter runs. The eagle-eyed among you will notice that it's the first week in March, but I had to miss a week in February because of the snow and, frankly, it's been so cold this week it's felt like winter anyway, so I'm declaring the challenge as well and truly met.
That's 15 hours and 90 miles notched up since the beginning of December. I think you can probably tell how pleased I am!
Staying motivated with spring on its way should be a doddle!
Anyway, it's time I headed back into my editing cave. Hopefully when you hear from me next I'll have news about the launch date of No One I Knew.
In the meantime, do let me know what you think about the cover!
All the best,
