Published! A Thousand Rooms

screen-shot-2016-10-02-at-09-25-592Yay! I’ve made my way through the tangle of formatting and emerged on the other side ready to hit the big red Publish button. A Thousand Rooms, my fourth novel, is now available to purchase through Amazon.

A stand-alone novel, A Thousand Rooms follows the story of suddenly-dead Katie and is set in Sydney, Australia, where I lived for a couple of years.

You don’t wake up expecting to die…

Katie is thirty-two, single, and used to work in advertising. She’s also dead. A lost soul hitching rides with the dying, trying to find her way to… wherever she’s supposed to be.

And whoever she’s supposed to be with.

Heaven, it seems, has a thousand rooms. What will it take to find hers?

I’m thrilled to finally have A Thousand Rooms out, almost two years to the day I started writing it. I’ve had a lot of help along the way, and really do appreciate all your support. I’ll be visiting a few blogs in upcoming weeks to talk about the book a little more and in the meantime, if you decide to treat yourself to a copy, thank you and I hope you enjoy it!

    1. Ooh, thanks so much, Louise! I have a paperback copy to send your way too (you are in the acknowledgement, after all). Hopefully I can give it to you when we finally meet up 🙂

  1. I commend you for all your hard work. I’ll go pick up my copy now! I got a new job and a baby to tend to so it may take awhile to complete, but when I do. I’ll let you know what I think and give you a review. Again…Great job, Helen!

      1. Oh, I think I might skip this one this year 🙂 I have a couple of novels I’m working on at the moment, but one is at a structural stage and the other is about 2/3 done, so neither would suit NaNo. Are you thinking of giving it a go? It sounds as though life is pretty busy already at your end!

      2. I have a novel I’m 2/3 done with as well. Hopefully with the new job, I can finish it next month, but no I won’t be in nano this year. We’lol catch it next year 😊

    1. Thanks, Sacha 🙂 It’s taken a few years, but it’s nice to have it happening now. I’m really pleased to have A Thousand Rooms out, it’s quite different to my other books and I hope it gets a good response.

    1. Thanks so much, Ali! I’m having a little bit of a blog wander this week and the next (yourself included) – maybe one day I’ll be able to have an actual launch party! 🙂 I’m really pleased it’s out too – it feels odd to say about my own work, but I really like this story.

    1. It’s not chick lit – unless it’s a sort of twisted speculative chick lit haha. The shoes are symbolic through the story – the cover style does fit the style of book though, it’s quite modern.
      And yes, Sydney is the setting – it’s a great city, isn’t it?
