Luke Turner’s debut non-fiction, Out of the Woods was reviewed in both the Guardian “a book to get lost in”, and Caught By the River “A compelling account of the insidious power of shame”. This book is gathering more and more positive attention, and we are so happy for Luke, his agent Natalie Galustian and publishers Weidenfeld & Nicolson.
Ahead of publication, we are thrilled to see Phyllida Shrimpton’s second YA novel, The Colour of Shadows has garnered over 140 first impressions over on readersfirst.co.uk. Readers First is a fantastic platform for readers to give their first impressions on a book based on the description, a “sneak peek” and cover. After the huge success of Phyllida’s debut YA novel Sunflowers In February, we cannot wait for her second to hit shelves on 7th February 2019. Fancy writing your own first impression? Click here.
