THE CHILDREN OF ALBION BY JILL TURNER.
We are absolutely delighted to share with you the announcement that we will be publishing Jill Turner's 'Children of Albion' on September 29th 2016. We have been working with Jill on this project for almost a year, and we are delighted to finally be at a stage we can share this incredibly powerful story with you, as well as introduce you to Jill.
Jill Turner began writing as a three year old. What started out as little stories about horses and cats developed over the years into teenage novellas and romances, which are still in a bedroom drawer (and should probably stay there).
A love of writing was fulfilled by a very successful and fast-paced career as a Fleet Street journalist at The Sunday Times, The Daily Mail, The Guardian, and The Daily Mirror among others. Working in journalism fed Jill's interest in the individual human experience, and developed Jill's storytelling abilities. The pursuit of journalism exposed Jill to many of the complexities, tragedies and socio-political contradictions of the human condition.
Jill now lives in the beautiful coastal countryside of South West England, where she writes full time, still writing periodically for national press, and increasingly dedicating her time to fiction writing. She lives with a very clever little boy, who adds infinitely to her life.
A voracious reader, she is passionate about getting young people into literature and has worked as a mentor with Youth At Risk, and Fairbridge/ The Prince’s Trust.
When not working, she likes to be out on the beach with her son, or at the nearest riding stables.

Flame by Toya Richardson
After a vicious breakup, the ambitious Amberley throws herself into the corporate world of the family business. Working night and day, she is out to make a success of her career, even if she can't see much hope for love. However, even though Amberley has moved on, it would seem that her ex has different ideas.
Living with a secret terror, Amberley's health begins to suffer, forcing her to seek refuge from all the London complications by heading down to her childhood holiday home at the Cornish Coast.
Her stay doesn't just lead to a recovery of her body, but of her heart and soul, too.
COOKIE CUTTER by Jo Richardson
Iris Alden and Carter Blackwood couldn’t be more different. Change-averse Iris likes her life neat and organized, while Carter’s itchy feet means he never stays in the same place for long.
When Carter, a stupidly handsome house flipper, purchases the house across the street from Iris, he has no intention of putting down roots, and she certainly has no time for a showy heartbreaker; she's far too busy being mom to a stroppy teenager, production line cookie baker for school fundraising events and member of the Spangler Events Committee - as well as trying to rebuild her life after divorce from her ratbag husband.
Before long, though, it’s not simply the house Carter’s rebuilding, but Iris’s heart, too.

Drawn together by their own self-destructive impulses and increasingly complex lives, they begin a consuming relationship of love and rejection.
With his mother’s over hasty marriage to his uncle, Malachi’s world turns on a spindle and his previously charmed life is invaded by a monster. Increasing paranoia and anger start to take over Malachi’s life, and it is only Ophelia who offers him hope of salvation; But to Ophelia’s heartbreak, Malachi isn’t capable of loving anything other than his future dream of following in his father’s glittering academic footsteps.
