Three new books for new readers

I got three emails this week reminding me about new book releases, so I thought I'd share the information in a quick blog post.



Today celebrates the paperback release of Karen Wyle's Division. You can find my review of Division by clicking this link. It's a fascinating exploration of near-future science and the life of conjoined twins, beautifully and convincingly imagine, and filled with thought-provoking twists and details.  

The author points out this book would be great for book clubs and I absolutely agree, so leave a comment below if you'd like to ask her about reader's notes and other possibilities.

Meanwhile Kathy Clark, a.k.a. Bob Kat's,  Rest In Peace is currently on sale for $0.99. I posted my review of Rest in Piece recently on Goodreads--just click on the blue words to read it.  With teenaged time-travellers, fascinating snippets of history, and a ghost, what more could you want?   RIP will be special priced between March 20th and April 1st at the following on line book sellers:

Historical novel set in Spain and India
The Empress Emerald by J. G. Harlond
Stolen: a child, an identity and a priceless jewel
Paperback and eBook publication date: 1st March, 2014

Famelton Publishing is delighted to announce a new novel by British ex-pat
J. G. Harlond, author of The Chosen Man.

The Empress Emerald, published by Famelton Publishing on March 1st, 2014, is set during the first half of the twentieth century in India, Britain and Spain. The Empress Emerald is the story of Leo Kazan and Davina Dymond, lovers separated by continents, time and social convention. Covering the tumultuous years between the two World Wars, when Russia was ripped apart by revolution, civil war destroyed Spain, and the Home Rule movement finally undermined 400 years of the British Raj in India, The Empress Emerald is a love story played out on an international stage.
This exciting yet poignant novel examines how our upbringing affects our life-choices and our identity. Richly detailed scenes with believable characters come to life in an enthralling hybrid of adventure and romance set against a backdrop of real, historic events.

An epic and enthralling novel of love and separation, betrayal and treachery . . . very cinematic, it is a rich tapestry of colour and characters.” Karen Maitland – author of The Falcons of Fire and Ice

About the author:
Jane G. Harlond has lived and worked in various different European countries. She is married to a Spanish naval officer and is now settled in rural AndalucĂ­a. She has lived (on and off) in Spain for over 25 years and some of her early experiences went into writing the story of Davina Dymond, one of the main characters in The Empress Emerald, a girl who is uprooted from her quiet Cornish backwater home and set down in a household full of secrets in Jerez, Spain.

The Empress Emerald is available to buy in paperback and eBook format from Amazon from 1st March.  Cost £8.99 (paperback) and £1.99 (eBook) (if you're in England). In the US, you'll find it at
