Happy Wednesday all! Hope you’re having a great week so far?
Sorry I’ve been slow at posting lately. I blog much more frequently over at my fashion and lifestyle blog, and the rest of the time I’m just busy writing away! I’ve been a busy little typer. Last year I wrote two new books, one of which is with my agent to sell and the other – The Memory Keepers – will be coming out from Hot Key this September. Eek! I’m currently doing my big initial edit for TMK so am at that stage of oh god why did I create such a complex story what is this rubbish how on earth will it be ready in a few months to go to printing I’m the worst writer in the world ever. It’s not the prettiest sight. But hopefully soon I’ll progress into the actually this isn’t too bad I can sort of see this working now phase, and I can get even more excited for you to read it.
I really love this book. Like really really really. The main characters Seven and Alba just totally stole my heart, and when you finally get to meet them, I hope you fall for them as much as I did.
Anyway, my lovely publishers have written an initial blurb for TMK, so I thought I’d share it with you. Let me know what you think. And I should have a cover to share too very soon! I’ve seen the first mock-up and it’s definitely a winner
THE MEMORY KEEPERS
Publisher: Hot Key Books
Pub date: September 2014 (UK and Commonwealth)
No one can take your memories from you… can they?
Seven is a thief with a difference – he steals downloadable memories to sell onto London’s black market, trading secrets and hidden pasts for a chance at a future of his own. He makes sure he keeps some special stuff back to ‘surf’ himself though – it’s the only real form of entertainment he can afford. But one night, as Seven is breaking into a private memorium in a wealthy part of London, he is caught in the act by one of its residents; Alba, the teenage daughter of London’s most famous criminal prosecutor.
Instead of giving him away, Alba promises to keep Seven’s secret – as long as he allows her to go memory-surfing herself. In doing so, they discover a hidden memory about Seven’s past, revealing a shocking secret about Seven’s childhood, the government and a mysterious experiment known as The Memory Keepers…
Now Seven and Alba will have to race against time to unlock the maze of The Memory Keepers – but can they keep themselves out of harm’s way before the London Guard – and Alba’s father – catches up with them?
