The USA Paperback arrives!
I am thrilled to say that The Housemaid's Daughter will be published in paperback in the USA in the New Year - the 6th January 2015, to be precise!
Up until now, the book has been available as a hardback in the US, but now comes the more affordable paperback. The cover has been tweaked slightly, but it still offers the same arresting image of a young woman against an African landscape.
I hope that this new edition will build on the success of the hardback, and extend the book's reach even further. The e-book version for iPad, Kindle, Kobo and various e-readers, is, of course, still available. And, if you have the time, you could listen to the story on CD, read by Bahni Turpin and Cat Gould in a fascinating "performance" brought out by Blackstone Audio. It lasts an indulgent 15 hours, over 13 CDs...
If you are in the US and you see a copy of the new paperback in a bookshop, please post a pic on The Housemaid's Daughter facebook page. I like to see evidence!
And please keep spreading the word into 2015!
Happy New Year!
