Book club has been harbouring a secret for a few weeks now that we’ve been dying to let out.
We’re now able to share it with you and we’re rather excited about that.
Book club has been given the exciting opportunity to work with Orion on the paperback edition of Laura Barnett’s second novel, Greatest Hits.
We’ll be giving our views on the book and helping the publisher’s marketing team to pick out the jacket and devise a campaign to launch the paperback in January 2018.
All nine of us are currently reading the hardback copy and conscientiously scribbling down our thoughts and feelings about the plot, characters and story. Notepads are being filled as we speak.
Four of us – Alison, Claire, Susan and me – are heading to Orion’s HQ in London next week to take part in a focus group looking at the finer details of the book. With tea, biscuits and book chat on the table, we jumped at the chance to join the marketing team for a productive planning session.
We’ve also left plenty of time in the afternoon for bookish adventures in the capital – rumours are rife about afternoon tea in the rooftop cafe at Waterstones, Picadilly.
There’ll be lots more news about our adventure to London, our work with Orion and our thoughts on the book to follow so watch this space for further info.
For now though, it’s just such a relief to share our happy news.
