Three months to go

FELINE excited: My trusty cat, Bernard, gets his paws on a proof copy of If Ever I Fall.
Ladies and gentlemen: your three-month warning. Yes, that’s how close we are now to my second novel hitting the shops. If Ever I Fall will be released in paperback and ebook formats on 9 February by HarperCollins UK.

I recently got my hands on a proof copy, which is always an exciting moment. It’s incredibly rewarding to see your work transformed from the manuscript you’ve been sweating over for months into a finished product. (Well, almost finished. The final cover will feature an eye-catching blue/purple foil to give it that extra wow factor.) I absolutely can’t wait for this book to get out there into readers’ hands.

So what’s it about? Well, I’m afraid I can’t reveal too much without spoiling it. It’s the kind of novel where you need to piece together the puzzle as you read. In essence, though, it deals with the breakdown of a marriage in the aftermath of a horrific incident.

The plot hinges around Dan and Maria Evans, the married couple in question, plus a mysterious third character known only as Jack.

Dan’s life has fallen apart at the seams. He’s lost his house, his job is on the line, and now he’s going to lose his family too. All he’s ever wanted is to keep them together, but is everything beyond repair?

Maria is drowning in grief. She spends her days writing letters that will never be answered. Nights are spent trying to hold terrible memories at bay, to escape the pain that threatens to engulf her.

Meanwhile, Jack wakes up confused and alone. He doesn’t know who he is, how he got there, or why he finds himself on a deserted clifftop, but will piecing together the past leave him a broken man?

Hopefully that’s enough to whet your appetite. If you enjoyed my debut novel, Time to Say Goodbye, why not pre-order this one and make sure you get it as soon as it comes out? Here’s the link:
