It’s been a wonderful week for cover reveals and publicity. Here are the highlights…
The stunning cover for Inga Vesper’s historical crime debut, The Long, Long Afternoon, has been revealed and we absolutely love it. This brilliant novel is published in February by Bonnier / Manilla Press. Check out this chilling video:
'Yesterday, I kissed my husband for the last time . . .'

They said of The Shelf: “Acton’s debut turns an acerbic eye on Love Island-style shenanigans with a fresh, feminist tale of a reality show gone wrong.”
And of Good Girls Die First: “Foxfield’s fantastically creepy debut nods to Agatha Christie as ten teens find themselves stranded with a murderer in their midst.”
This week, Madeleine Milburn and Kimberley Young from HarperFiction hosted a very exciting Publishing Masterclass! From identifying the best agent to sharpening up a submission, they talked new writers through the publishing journey from first draft to first book deal.
