It was only a couple of weeks back that I brought you the gorgeous cover reveal for my 31st August release Snowflakes Over The Starfish Café, and I’m delighted to have another reveal today.
The fourth book in the Hedgehog Hollow series – A Wedding at Hedgehog Hollow – has been available for pre-order since book 3 – Family Secrets at Hedgehog Hollow – was published at the start of May. It had a holding cover and, although we wouldn’t normally do an official cover reveal until much closer to publication day when we have an author of the day slot which includes releasing the book onto NetGalley (a site specifically for book bloggers and reviewers/influencers to get an early copy for review), the cover was ready and it’s so much prettier than a plain holding cover so we’ve released it today.
What do you think?
A huge thank you to my amazing cover designer, Debbie Clements, our Digital Marketing Manager Claire Fenby for the gorgeous visuals, and Boldwood Books for this beauty.
If you’d like to bob on over to my publisher’s Facebook page (Book and Tonic), you can find a short video of me telling readers what they can expect from the fourth book, spoiler free of course. Find it here.
For anyone eagerly awaiting book 4, I’m afraid this doesn’t mean it will be out any sooner than 6th January 2022. It actually can’t come out sooner because I haven’t finished writing it yet!
I ended Family Secrets at Hedgehog Hollow on a whopper of a cliff hanger and I love that readers are clamouring for the next instalment. It’s so incredibly flattering that they’re so engaged with the story and the drama that they are desperate to know what happens next. But it does take a little longer to write a book than it does to read it. And by ‘little’, I mean a heck of a lot!
So please do forgive me for taking that time and ensuring that the series does continue with an equally engaging and exciting story rather than rushing out something that’s mediocre.
In the meantime, I have two Whitsborough Bay books out. Christmas Wishes at the Chocolate Shop is the final book in my backlist to have a fresh edit/new scenes add in and came out on Tuesday (previously out as Charlee and the Chocolate Shop). Snowflakes Over The Starfish Café is a brand new book and is available for pre-order now.
If you’ve loved Hedgehog Hollow but haven’t taken a trip to Whitsborough Bay yet, why don’t you have a little explore? There aren’t any hedgehogs but you’ll find everything else that you’ll have loved about the Hedgehog Hollow books: love, friendship, family, community, warmth and kindness. And maybe a character or two who you’re going to love to hate because I do love to create those baddies!
If you’d like to know what order to best read the Whitsborough Books in, you can find an explanation of all the connections here.
I hope you like the cover for A Wedding at Hedgehog Hollow. It’s my favourite of the four and possibly my favourite of all my books although I do have some absolute stunners so it’s hard to pick.
Here’s a couple of pre-order links for Amazon. It will appear on Apple for pre-order but they don’t permit a pre-order to go up quite as early as Amazon so a little longer to wait there:
