Just popping in to the Take Five Authors Wednesday News Spot to show you (OK, show off!) the cover for my next book, The Christmas Promise.
I’m totally thrilled and delighted with the wonderful jacket Avon Books UK have designed – especially as the paperback is very satisfactorily blingy with gold foil and silver sparkles.
You won’t be surprised to hear that the book’s set at Christmas. Ava doesn’t like Christmas, her business as a couture milliner is struggling so she’s skint and her ex-boyfriend is threatening her with revenge porn.
Sam, on the other hand, has plenty of money and usually loves Christmas. But this year his mum’s ill, making him re-evaluate everything. He decides to give his mum, Wendy, the best Christmas he can and orders her a special gift – which involves Ava making a promise that proves unexpectedly hard to keep.
And now let’s wish Jenny Harper a very Happy Publication Day for Mistakes We Make, the latest in her Heartlands series of ‘contemporary women’s fiction with bite’: complex characters facing serious issues.
Congratulations, Jenny! I hope to see this lovely book zooming up the charts.
