PRETTY LITTLE THINGS – COVER REVEAL

So, here it is!

This is the fantastic cover for my first standalone novel, Pretty Little Things!

I really enjoyed writing this book. I love my DCI Claire Winters series but it has been lovely to start from scratch with a new set of characters to get to know and flesh out, in a new place, and with some new ideas through the story itself.

Pretty Little Things is a bit different from the DCI Winters series, but I am confident that readers of the series will also enjoy the new book. Best described as a psychological thriller with a investigative procedural edge, Pretty Little Things still stays true to my ‘voice’ and tendency to lean towards the raw, darker and twisty side of the crime/thriller genre.

Pretty Little Things is published in eBook on 6th June 2018 and is available across all e-retailers (Amazon, Kobo, iBooks, Barnes and Noble etc.).

It can be pre-ordered here for Amazon UK and here for those of you from the USA for only 99p/99 cents!

Pretty Little Things will also be available as an audio book in due course and when there is more news, I will update the website.

For more instant and up to date news, you can follow me on Twitter @tmewalsh or my Facebook author page if you haven’t done so already.

I hope to have some more news soon, but until then, I’ll leave you all with the blurb and the awesome, and suitably creepy, book trailer!

It’s bad when the girls go missing.
It’s worse when the girls are found.

Six months ago, Charlotte almost lost everything. Now, she’s determined to keep her daughter, Elle, safe. So, when local girls close to Elle in age and appearance begin to go missing, it’s her worst nightmare.

Charlotte’s fears are confirmed when a frantic search becomes a shocking murder investigation. The girls’ bodies have been found – half-buried, and with traces of mud and wildflowers under their fingernails.

As Charlotte’s obsession with keeping her daughter close pushes her marriage to the brink, local DI Madeleine Wood embarks on a gruelling search for the killer. And, as they dig deeper into the lives of the people they call friends and neighbours, they uncover secrets more terrible than they ever imagined…

Pretty Little Things is the nail-bitingly terrifying new serial killer thriller from T. M. E. Walshthe perfect read for fans of Close to Home, Behind Her Eyes and The Child.

 

 

New contract – more books!

20160520_105011

Now that everything is ‘official’, I’m pleased to announce that I have signed another contract with Carina UK, (a digital first imprint of HarperCollins) for the next three books in the DCI Claire Winters series!

Book 3, Skin Deep, is shaping up nicely and is due to be released this autumn and I intend to start book 4, The Devil’s Letters, early August. Book 5 (currently untitled) will follow in the latter part of 2017/early 2018.

Skin Deep will be available for pre-order soon, but until then, The Principle of Evil is still at 99p  until the end of May on Amazon UK in their Kindle Monthly Deal. Grab your copy and make a great saving! 😀

 

For All Our Sins in print!

 

For All Our Sins - NEW 2016 COVER

I’m happy to announce that For All Our Sins will be out in paperback this October!

It’s available to pre-order here.

I hope this will mean the book will be available on book shelves in stores, as well as online, but I’m not sure yet.

Either way, I can’t wait to hold an actual physical copy of my book. I’m now counting down the months until then!

COVER REVEAL – Part two

And here it is! The cover for ‘The Principle of Evil’, book two in the DCI Claire Winters series.

The Principle of Evil - 2016

I was amazed when I first saw the cover this week. It captures some key elements of the story in one bold look, and I hope it will draw readers in when browsing online.

It’s not long until publication day – 25th February – the book is up for pre-order, and I’m filled with both excitement and nerves.

‘The Principle of Evil’ really is my ‘book baby’. It has a special place in my heart, and has come a long way from its very early conception in February 2011.

Between 2011 and now, the book has gone through many changes, agent requests, re-workings, to being self-published in 2013, and then being picked up by Carina UK , who are an imprint of HarperCollins.

It’s been nearly five years, and to see how far it has come during this time is amazing.

Roll on publication day!
