“EVERYONE BRINGS BAGGAGE ON A SINGLES HOLIDAY”
But on this singles holiday no one is quite who they seem. First impressions are unreliable and when the sun goes down, danger lies in wait. As someone targets the unwary group of strangers, one guest is alone in sensing the threat.
But who would get involved, when getting involved only ever leads to trouble?
Singled Out subverts the sunshine holiday romance, taking readers to a darker place where horrific exploits come to light, past mistakes must be accounted for and there are few happily-ever-afters.
Reviews for Singled Out
Readers have been amazingly generous and kind in their feedback on Singled Out – on Amazon UK and USA sites and on Goodreads. For a self-published author, positive reviews are a thrilling experience. Every single review matters, because every single reader matters.
I posted a collation of some quotes from early reviews here.
The Story So Far
Published early in 2015, Singled Out is my first novel, a psychological story set in the tranquil environment of a singles holiday on Turkey’s beautiful Lycian Coast.
I begun writing Singled Out in 2010. As I worked my way through the first draft I was still experimenting, trying to find out what kind of a writer I was. My greatest satisfaction came when I began to take the story into psychological territory, where murky characters who conceal their true nature hide in plain sight. I’d always enjoyed reading psychological fiction but until then, I didn’t realise how much pleasure I found in writing it.
For over four years I drafted, re-drafted and edited with guidance from my mentor, tutors on Arvon Foundation and Circle of Misse writing courses and a small circle of writerly friends. When I thought I was finished, I put my manuscript in a drawer for a few months, then got it out again – and edited some more. Now, it’s available to buy from Amazon, wherever you are in the world.
When it comes to genre, the most helpful I can be with Singled Out is to call it psychological suspense. You can see why in my post ‘What’s My Genre’ here.
If you find your way on to Amazon and click to buy, I hope very much that you enjoy the read and I’d love it if you would come back and let me know what you thought.
