I Have A Book Title! Meep!

Lazy morning, Zelda-style
Zelda is successfully hiding her excitement at my new title…

Hello my lovelies! Hope you are all well, and I apologise in advance for the number of exclamation marks in the following post.

I’m very excited to announce that my new novel has a title* (courtesy of my wonderful editor at Lake Union) and a release date. Yes, it’s up for pre-order Right Now. No cover art, yet, but I have been told it’s being designed AS I TYPE THIS. (Sorry, forgot to warn you about the all-capitals-shouting, too. SORRY – TOO EXCITED.)

So, without further ado, my next book is called:

In The Light of What We See

And it will be published on 8th March 2016. Meep!

In other news, I’ve put together a little behind-the-scenes freebie for those of you who enjoyed reading about the Harper family in The Language of Spells, The Secrets of Ghosts and The Garden of Magic (or for people who just like free recipes).

Head here to grab your copy.

It features a lovely photograph of Iris’s journal, created by my amazing in-house production team (AKA My Mum and Dad – thank you!).

Also, if you’re interested in writing, but need some help in getting started, check out my latest article on The Worried Writer: How To Build a Writing Habit The Easy Way

 

*Listeners of my podcast, The Worried Writer, may be confused. You might be thinking ‘but Sarah told us the title in the last episode’. Apologies! It changed. I hope you like the new one!

    Hi Sarah!
    …Now that title sounds as tho’ it jus might be a NON-FICTION book! I’m intrigued – wonder if I’m right? It’s certainly very different to your other titles. Anyway, as always – good luck (as if you needed it!)
    Gosh, hasn’t Zelda grown since the last pic you posted of her? I guess it’s like kids one hasn’t seen for a while. One of my nieces paid me a visit during the summer. The last time I saw her she was a ‘gawky’ sullen teenager just about to sit her A levels…..Then this smartly dressed young woman steps out of her Porsche sports car, drops me a false courtsey and gives me a big smile “Hello, Uncle Carl. How lovely to see you after all this time”. Zelda still looks the same feisty tigress tho’ even when resting (just take a closer look at that right paw !)

      Hi Carl. Thanks for your comment and the good wishes! It’s another novel – a dual narrative set in a hospital in Brighton and is part historical, part psychological thriller.

      Hi Sarah!
      Whoops! (Well, maybe that was because we’ve just had our annual International Science Festival here – and the theme was – LIGHT!) Of course with a title like that I guess the topic could be almost anything e.g. ‘Religious/Spiritual’ – “I am the light of the World” etc. ) Most intriguing! Hope it’s going to have a god cover picture – it deserves one!
      Best wishes, Carl

      Dear Sarah,
      I am sure I read somewhere that your two current books are coming out in hardback. I would like to purchase these. Please could you tell me where they are being sold or if you have them in stock, if I could purchase from them.

      REally looking forward to your new book in March!

      Best wishes

      Maggie

        Hi Maggie, Thanks so much for your question! The Language of Spells is the only one available in print (paperback) at the moment. You can get it from Amazon http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Language-Spells-Sarah-Painter/dp/026391755X/ref=tmm_pap_title_0
        I am hoping that Carina will follow suit and put The Secrets of Ghosts into paperback, too, but nothing has been confirmed. The new book – In The Light of What We See – will be available as a paperback (and audiobook) as well as ebook. Very best wishes, Sarah x
