Chosen Child is published!

I’m really pleased that my fourth book – another psychological thriller – is now available to download on kindle or other devices with an app.

A few bits and pieces about the book:
From the first word on the first page of the first draft, until today, it took almost exactly sixteen months to complete.

Five people were directly involved in the creation of Chosen Child – me, the editor, the proofreader, the formatter, and the cover designer. Many others gave help and advice along the way.

Chosen Child contains 81,000 words.

Most of the book is set in Cornwall, but there are a couple of scenes in Glasgow, and one set of characters went to Edinburgh Zoo as well.

TAR,CC EnglishLast week’s highlight was when it appeared right beside The Attic Room in the Amazon charts, category Kidnapping. (The Attic Room special offer has now ended; both are available for £1.99 – still a snip!)

The paperback will be out by the end of the month – I should be able to give an exact date next week.

I’d like to say a huge thanks to everyone involved in this project, not least of all to those who support me by reading it – I really hope you enjoy it. (If you do, remember word of mouth is the best publicity!)

Over the next week or two I’ll be visiting various book and writing blogs – today it’s Linda Hill, for some general book chat, and Helen Pollard.

    Congratulations, Linda! How exciting. I’m still waiting for ‘The Cold Cold Sea’ to arrive. I don’t have an e-reader as I prefer books – very old fashioned of me. I shall be looking forward to the date when I can buy the paperback version of ‘Chosen Child’. By the way, I love the trailer. It’s excellent. I hope you’re celebrating with a bottle or two of champagne!

      I certainly am. It’s chilling right now. I’ll pass on the compliment about the trailer to my son, thank you! I like real books too, though kindles are useful for travel (and saving space…)


  4. Big congrats, Linda! Can’t wait to read “Chosen Child.”
