Excerpts Galore!

tlwt & scSummer’s Child is available for preorder now.

I just did some minor updating on my website, adding pages for my reissued Summer’s Child and the upcoming, brand new The Lies We Told. That means you are now able to read excerpts of each of these books (along with excerpts from many of my previous books, if you haven’t already read them).

Summer’s Child will be published on March 30th, less than two weeks away. It’s almost mean to invite you to read the excerpt from The Lies We Told now, since it won’t be out for another two months, but it’s there if you can’t wait.

I’ve also updated the printable booklist on the books page with publication dates, the various titles of different books in different English-speaking countries, etc. Hope this helps ease some of the confusion many of you have had as you try to figure out if you’ve already read a book or not.

As usual, if you encounter any problems with my website, please don’t hesitate to let me know. It’s there for you and I want it to be a snap for you to use.

    I didn’t read the excerpt for The Lies We Told but I did the synopsis and I’m really looking forward to reading it 🙂 I’m reading Jodi Picoult’s latest right now then I may pick up one of your older one’s I have but haven’t read (Cypress Point or Breaking the silence)

    Diane, there you go teasing us again. *sigh* 2 months is a loooong wait.

    Margo, Chauncey is a sweetie isn’t he? He only has a bit part though. Glad you enjoyed the excerpt.

    I am a avid reader and live in Berkshire, England. I have nearly finished The Bay At Midnight – the first book of yours I have read – and I have been unable to put it down. Tomorrow I am going to buy another of your books – they are a lovely treat to read at night after a hard day at work. You have another fan!

    Christine, I love that my books have found new readers in the UK! Thanks for saying hi on the blog.
