The Rift Goes to America

Category: Blog Tour, Candlewick Press, The Rift

It is a dream come true for me to have a novel released in North America, something I have hoped and prayed for, for a long time. Even with a quiet release, backlist book, I am overwhelmed with gratitude. When the hardcover copies arrived I spent a lot of time stroking that sparkling gold spine beneath the dust jacket. We don’t publish in hardback here in New Zealand and Australia, so it feels like a BIG DEAL for a lil’ kiwi girl.

Hardcover Heaven
The Golden Spine
Just wow.

So, thank you to Candlewick Press for picking up this peculiar story about a mysterious island where a community of Rangers protect and ancient herd of mystical deer from poachers and big pharmaceutical company fortune hunters. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate the opportunity to connect with a new community of readers.

Be sure to check out the blog tour, hosted by JeanBookNerd. It runs for 2 weeks and includes lots of background detail about the source of inspiration for this novel. If you are keen to hear some of the musical inspiration for The Rift, hop over to my books page here and scroll down to the Spotify playlist. Also, if you’re an audiobook fan, stay tuned for December 10th. Details to come.

As always, if you would like to share your reading experience with me you can email me on my contact page or tag me into your instagram/twitter/ facebook posts. I would love to see! If this book wasn’t your cup of tea please don’t tag me. HA! I’m happy to live in blissful ignorance.

The Rift is available in all good bookstores from October 8th 2019.
