Published, at last! I am thrilled. ISLAND of SECRETS, published by Bonnier Zaffre, will be available from all major supermarkets, W H Smiths, and more, in May 2017.

I will add the inside story to my original post (when I was trying to find an agent, a year ago,) in the forum over the next few days.

This novel started life as THE RUSTED GUN, then, DRIVEN BY SECRETS, but the publishers wanted ISLAND of SECRETS.

Everyone who reviewed my chapters, has a hand in the novel's success, and I thank you!

Huge thanks to two very special people: Tony Fyler from Jefferson Franklin Editing who helped me a great deal. I highly recommend his editing service. Also extra special thanks to TED. I have no doubt, without this YWO website I would never have reached my goal.

Well done you! Congratulations! I used Tony's service also in the very early days, with When The Madach Came and it was very helpful. Cheryl

Well done, Patricia! You must be on top of the world right now.
I will order it for Aberdeenshire libraries when it comes out. They usually buy six copies for circulation.
I wish you the best of luck with it.
