You can pre-order Olive here!
“Olive is a generation-defining novel about the obstacle course of adulthood, milestone decisions and the ‘taboo’ about choosing not to have children.”
I am so thrilled to finally be able to share with the world some exciting news, that I’ve been keeping a secret for the best part of a year: I am publishing a novel! In July 2018, I opened up a new Word Document and I found myself typing and getting to know a fun, spiky, loyal and anxious character called Olive. This year, I got a publishing deal for the book!
I am absolutely over the moon to be published by HarperCollins, the no.1 dream home for my fiction. I remember whispering ‘HarperCollins’ at my agent like it was a magic word when we first started discussing the novel, and I feel incredibly lucky. The team have been the absolute best, supporting me in creating a story I am incredibly proud of and have pushed me as a writer. I hope the topics explored in the novel spark many conversations in the office and in the pub.
The book is scheduled to publish in hardback in June 2020 🙂
As you know, pre-orders help authors massively and successful pre-orders can have a knock-on effect into real-life bookstores, especially with debut authors. (You won’t get charged on Amazon until the product ships.)
I think you’re going to really enjoy getting to know Olive.
