In 2012 I was one of the Writers to Watch, a group who performed their work in Portsmouth and had their stories published in an anthology. It was a great experience, and I made some fabulous friends, including Joanne Mallory.
So I’m excited that Jo’s debut novel, Thunder Moon is going to be released on Amazon on Tuesday 17th January. I’ve already pre-ordered mine! I’ve heard a few chapters at The Writers at Lovedean, so it will be exciting to get a chance to read the full novel after all the editing advice Jo got from independent publisher Crooked Cat, and to see the work in its entirety.
Jo’s an incredibly talented writer when it comes to capturing a setting, and I know from the extracts I have read that she’s made the most of this skill and has used the local area as inspiration, especially Langstone.
I wish Jo luck, and I’m counting down the days until I can get my hands on this new magical romance!
