It is my very great honour and privilege to welcome Sam Carrington to my blog today!
*Grab the nearest paper bag and breathe!*
For those of you who have seen some of my previous posts and tweets, I am a huge fan of Sam's debut psychological thriller "Saving Sophie". The novel is about Karen and her 17 year old daughter Sophie who returns home one evening drunk and accompanied by the police. She has no memory of how she got into such a state. The next day there is still no news of her friend Amy and then a dead body is discovered. Karen makes it her priority to work out what happened despite battling her own issues - including suffering from severe panic attacks and the need for a paper bag to help regulate and calm her breathing. Myself and fellow book blogger Kaisha Holloway (The Writing Garnet) both agree that the publishers ought to make the sale of a paper bag alongside the paperback essential as it is such a gripping and literally breathtaking read!
So it is a great pleasure to introduce you all to Sam and hear all she has to say about her reading and writing habits.
Wow! I'm so intrigued! This sounds fantastic! I cannot wait!
Thanks so much Sam for coming on my blog today and answering all my questions with such interesting responses! It's been lovely to learn more about you and to chat "scary books /TV" with you!
Good luck with completing your new novel and we look forward to hearing more about it nearer publication time!
