In my excitement, I’m struggling to write this blog post, which is why I’m just going to dive straight in and tell you all about my new novel – due for release 1st October 2015, thanks to the lovely team at Safkhet Publishing.
Many of you will know it’s had a couple of working titles along the way. Initially I called it Birth, Deaths and Marriages and as the book developed it became Promises, Promises, neither of which seemed to sit right. Anyway, after a lot of musing I hope you’re as pleased as I am with the final choice, because here it is…
Ladies and Gentleman, I bring you…
What do you think, Guys? Isn’t it pretty?
The Trouble with Words by Suzie Tullett
Promises – easy to make, hard to keep
Having long made a promise to her husband, young widow, Annabel, has no intentions of breaking it. What she does plan to do though, is have a baby. Not the easiest of tasks for a woman with a deceased other half and having explored all the options, her only choice is it to take the unconventional route. Setting out to find her own donor, Annabel meets Dan. Single, fun-loving and definitely not looking for commitment, this unruly blonde haired, blue eyed man seems perfect for the job.
Dan wants nothing more than to find his dream woman. But with a mother intent on sabotaging his every relationship, he can’t help but think he’s destined to remain single. Of course, he knows his mother doesn’t really want him all for herself, why else would she keep insisting he meet Maeve? Why else would she insist Dan promise to find himself a wife before she meets her maker?
Forced to negotiate matters of love, life and death, Annabel and Dan seem the answer to each other’s prayers. But will they really be able to keep the promises they made? And is having a baby really the solution?
So there you have it, Guys, my new release. A book filled with laugh-out-loud highs and tear inducing lows, all I can say is grab your hankies.
Roll on October 1st! x
