PUBLICATION DAY GIVEAWAY


It's publication day today for Miss Emily. It's mad to think I signed the contract eighteen months ago with Penguin (having finished writing the book two years ago) and here it is today, finally released into the world (or part of it, at least!). The audio book also appears today, for those who prefer to listen rather than read.

Audio book of Miss Emily
The pre-publicity in North America has been enormous and heartening. And my webmaster has fashioned a Miss Emily page on my website to report on some of it. (Watch out also for the novel's UK/Irl release from Sandstone on 20th August.)


In the meantime my lovely team at Penguin sent me flowers and my webmaster/husband gave me my fave champagne (and brekkie in bed). Spoilt, happy excited woman here!

To celebrate I am doing a Miss Emily giveaway with various prizes: a copy of the US edition of the book, a St Brigid's cross (features in the book), an Emily Dickinson fridge magnet, Emily cards etc. I will have three separate draws and you'll win what you win. Just leave a comment to enter. Simple as :)

I've been intrigued by Emily Dickinson for years. So excited by the chance to "read" her through the voice of another almost "invisible" woman. Can't wait!
