Happy New Year to you all. I know everyone is hoping for better and brighter things as the year unfolds, so I thought I’d get off to a good start by revealing the cover for The Secret Child, the second book in The Margate Maid trilogy. I’m so pleased with it – a big thank you to my publishers, Piatkus Books. It comes out in March in hardback, ebook and audio, with the paperback to follow in the summer.
And speaking of paperbacks, there aren’t many days to wait until paperback publication of the first book in the trilogy, A Maid’s Ruin – out on 21st January. Support your local bookshop if you can – most of them are still taking orders for delivery or collection, even under Tier 4 restrictions. Then settle in for a bit of reading to take you through the long evenings ahead, until spring, lighter nights and – with a massive dose of luck – a return to life as we once knew it.
