So, news. My second thriller, The Liar’s Girl, will be out in the UK/Ireland and the USA in early 2018 and I’ll be revealing both covers on Instagram on Friday, so if you’re not already following me @cathryanhoward over there, start now!
(That’s also where I share what books I’m reading and sometimes what I thought of them too, if you’re into that kind of thing.)
To make things more interesting, I’ll be revealing each cover square by square. So you might see me post weird images like this:
But then when all 12 weird images have been posted, go look at my Instagram page (in grid view) and TA-DAA!
(That is, obviously, the UK/Ireland trade paperback cover of Distress Signals. I did a test with it.)
The covers will be revealed this Friday, 14th July:
- From noon for the UK/Ireland cover
- From 6pm for the USA cover (that’s 1pm Eastern and 10am Pacific – thanks Erin!)
OOOH, THE ANTICIPATION.
(Mostly felt by me, because I can’t wait to hear what you think of these covers. They’re VERY different to each other but both amazing in their own ways.)
What else can I tell you about this novel? Well, not much because I like being an international woman of mystery. For now, anyway. But let’s just say:
- It’s another standalone (it’s not a sequel to Distress Signals)
- ‘Girl’ is in the title but hold your books-with-girl-in-the-title-think-piece horses: she actually IS a girl (or at least she was when the Bad Stuff started happening)
- It’s set in Ireland
- It’s set on dry land BUT…
- … water does feature. (The featured image on this post = BIG CLUE.)
I am currently in the south of France slowly melting into a puddle of Irish Person Who’s Not Used To This Heat. Here’s a picture I took last night to depress you:
Next week, I’ll be heading for Harrogate, THE crime festival of the year, with the Writing.ie gang and between us – there’s four of us, I think – we will be tweeting every event LIKE MAD so do brace yourself for that. If you’re going to be AT Harrogate, do find us and say hi!
Don’t forget – there’s an easy way to stay up to date with my bookish news: my newsletter. Sign up here. I only send a handful a year so you don’t need to worry about inbox overload. Alternatively you can follow me on Twitter or “like” meh Facebook page thingy. (*whispers* Then there’ll be NO escape…. *evil cackle*)
But remember: if you want to see my new covers first, you better be on Instagram!
