It’s publication day for Anna and I wanted to tell you why this re-launch and the book itself has a very special meaning and place in my heart.
When Betsy rang with the release dates for the French series, my heart flipped over when she told me Anna would be published on 4th June.
You see, four years ago today, around 7am in the morning, my precious mum passed away. It has always been such a sad day, one we dread which is doubly awful because it’s the day after my daughter’s birthday, and she was the apple of her grandma’s eye.
My mum was my world, my best friend, always there in a crisis, my absolute rock. In 2013, when I told her I was going to write a book, just as she had done throughout my life, Mum cheered me on. Every chapter I wrote was printed off so she could read it hot off the press and the day A Bientôt (that’s what it was called then) was published well, she was so excited and proud of me.
Mum loved the stories of French life, especially the characters and said she wished they were real, a sentiment echoed by readers ever since.
Anna was my debut novel and actually, the first in the series but in its new life it’s book two. I dedicated it to my mum in 2013 and the words at the front remain the same, they always will.
For my mum
Thank you for everything, always and forever.
I wish she was here to see how my career has taken off. Mum would’ve loved to come to my library talks and author events. I console myself with the image of her and my dad, watching over me, maybe taking a seat at the back of the hall or peeping over my shoulder as I sign books.
This is why today is very special for me because not only is Anna having a new lease of life, it feels like a very sad day has turned around. The frown is upside down, and that this launch, on this day, was always meant to be.
The 4th June 2019 is a turning point and is always going to be special now, for a happier reason.
Today is for my mum, Ann.
Anna is released today and is half price for a limited time!
We are super excited to announce that we have signed the very talented Amanda James. The Calico Cat, a heart-warming story about self-discovery, life, love and friendship will be released in June of this year.
Bombshell Books are back!
After launching with the hilarious The Queen of Blogging, Bombshell Books are back with two new authors and three fabulous novels.
Therese Loreskar returns with her sequel to The Queen of Blogging – The Queen of New Beginnings
Therese Loreskar started her career in 2010 self-publishing her first novel, which quickly became a critically acclaimed best-seller.
In 2014 she was signed by a Swedish publishing house before being signed by Bombshell in the summer of 2016. Her novel, The Queen of Blogging, received overwhelming feedback and the book was referred to as a modern Bridget Jones.
Therese has since had four bestselling children’s books.
Her never-ending energy for writing and entertaining people is her biggest trait.
Therese lives in the countryside on the west coast of Sweden. She has a big and busy household with her husband, two children, a deaf cat, five hamsters and a grandmother.
When she is not busy writing stories she enjoys nature, people, history, redecorating the house without permission and all other kinds of creativity.
The Queen of New Beginnings will be published on August 10th this year.
Guardian book prize shortlisted author, Suzie Tullett, signs with Bombshell Books
Suzie Tullett is an author of contemporary humorous fiction and romantic comedy. She has a Masters Degree in Television & Radio Scriptwriting and worked as a scriptwriter before becoming a full-time novelist. Her motto is to 'live, laugh, love' and when she's not busy creating her own literary masterpieces, she usually has her head in someone else's.
Suzie lives in a tiny hamlet in the middle of the French countryside, along with her husband and two Greek rescue dogs. You can find Suzie on Twitter: @SuzieTullett or you can visit her website: suzietullett.com
Her heart-warming romantic comedy, The Trouble with Words, will be published on July 29th this year.
Caroline was born and brought up in Berkshire. After a brief teenage spell in the depths of Lancashire, she moved back to London.
Having left school at 16, she studied drama before embarking on a career in marketing. This saw her work in music marketing in the heady days of Britpop in the late ‘90s. She unleashed her creativity in the design of window displays and marketing campaigns for the leading music retailer. More recently she has followed her passion for social history and currently works in marketing for a national historical institution, promoting projects and running events.
On hitting her thirtieth birthday, she decided finally to take her A levels and gained A’s in English Literature and Language, and Film Studies – not bad when working full time – and this spurred her on to take the first of many creative writing course. A few years later and she has had a number of short stories published and plays performed at theatres and venues across London.
Caroline lives in London with her long-term partner and an ever-growing collection of antique curiosities.
Her beautifully written and heart-wrenching debut novel, A Time to Change, will be published on September 24th this year.
