What does an author do when they're blocked on a new novel?
They design new covers for books that already exist, and while they're at it, they decide to release a brand new paperback version of the same book.
That Sadie Thing has been out of print (although still available as an ebook) for a couple of years, but I love books and I really wanted these stories to be back in print, so here they are. The stories are the same, just a little more polished.
I'm not sharing any links at the moment because the updating process can be rather slow, but if your favourite retailer has this cover, it's the new version And if it doesn't, please let me know.
Saturday 16th July saw me heading to Redruth on a very hot afternoon for the ceremony for the Holyer an Gof awards.
Sadly I didn't win my category Fiction for Adults: Literary Fiction but I did enjoy the ceremony, listened to some wonderful music by Richard Trethewey - a nominee in a different category - and met fellow nominee in my category Charlie Carroll. The winner in our category was Ruth Saberton for Oyster Shore which I'll be reading soon.
Congratulations to all the nominated authors, the category winners, and the overall cup winners. You can see a full list here.
I was excited and honoured yesterday to see the announcement that Small Forgotten Moments has been shortlisted for this year's Gorsedh Kernow Holyer an Gof Publishers Awards. This is an award which seeks to promote and celebrate books about Corrnall or written in Cornish.
Small Forgotten Moments is set on the slightly overlooked (in literary terms, at least) south east coast, in a place called Seaton.
What people are saying about Small Forgotten Moments:
"Small Forgotten Moments was part psychological thriller and part ghost story that often reminded me of Daphne du Maurrier’s Rebecca. An easy five stars." - Robert, Amazon review
"A compelling novel, which I read twice because I enjoyed it so much. Full of mystery but ultimately as heartwarming as it is chilling. What a great concept for a story!" - LindaK, Amazon review
"Beautifully written and seamlessly crafted, this story holds your attention from beginning to end." - Elizabeth Seckman, author
