The big news here is that I finally have a date for when my debut novel will be on bookshelves near you! My publishers Harvill Secker have settled upon January 25, 2018.
And we have a new title – If I Die Before I Wake.
It’s being described as ‘a thrilling and moving psychological suspense novel’ narrated by Alex, who is hospitalised with locked-in syndrome following a rock climbing accident. As his family and friends visit him, unaware that he can hear every word in his coma, Alex begins to suspect that this was no accident. Alex is running out of time show he is conscious and to solve the mystery of his own attempted murder.
My lovely editor, Liz Foley, Harvill Secker Publishing Director, says: ‘I’m so excited to be publishing If I Die Before I Wake. It’s a special thing to have a tense psychological thriller that delivers on so many levels and packs such an emotional punch. Emily is a really smart writer and she handles her intense scenario and her brilliant characters beautifully to make this a truly memorable read.’
Exciting times! Today I’ve been trawling through copy editors comments as we edge ever closer to the final version of the text.
