Hooray for Tinder Press!


I am so excited about the new imprint from Headline Publishing Group. Tinder Press launch early next year with a new Maggie O'Farrell, Instructions for a Heatwave. I loved The Hand That First Held Mine so I'm looking forward to the new one a great deal. They have a great line-up, including a novel called Amity and Sorrow that looks amazing. It's by Peggy Riley, and the buzz about the book is already huge. It's not out until March, but I don't think I can wait that long to read it. It looks too good to resist, so I am very grateful to the publishers for sending me an advance copy!





Tinder Press have also very kindly just sent me their catalogue, which is actually these beautiful little cards. So gorgeous!

They are on twitter, I've been following them for a while now, @TinderPress, give them a whirl.

Do these stories live in the American psyche the way Magna Carta, Henry VIII and his six wives, and Jack the Ripper (to select three almost at random) live in mine? 
I remember a book we stocked when I was a very young bookseller at Waterstones in Watford that looked at the psychology of children who murder their parents. The copy on the back of the book talked of Lizzie Borden. I remember half wondering about the case, then shelving the book away and moving onto the next armful. But it stuck in my m…
