Open to all Jericho Writers' event: Ask a debut author, editor, and agent anything

Hi everyone! I'm delighted to invite you to an 'open for all' Jericho Writers event which will serve as my debut book launch and an 'Ask Us Anything' session with my editor and Simon & Schuster, and agent at Kate Nash Literary Agency on Friday 23rd April at 7pm (UK time).

We'll cover questions about getting published, debuting during lockdown, getting an agent, and anything else that you want to know about the road to publication. 

You can register for the event here and I'd love to see you there!

All My Lies Book Launch and Ask Us Anything Event 

Join us for a night of celebrations for Sophie's debut book launch where we'll be joined by her agent, Kate Nash, and editor, Bethan Jones who will be on hand to answer any of your questions about writing, publishing, and of course Sophie's book.

All My Lies - Blurb
Anna wants to escape.
She doesn’t know when her marriage to James began to feel like a trap or when he became so controlling. All she knows is that she needs to leave before it’s too late.

And she has a plan.
When Anna reconnects with her childhood sweetheart, Sam, she sees it as the answer to her problems. Finally, they’ll have a life together, like they’d always planned – the life she was meant to have.

But the lies are catching up with her . . .
On the morning of their escape, Sam goes missing. Anna knows he wouldn’t leave her, that something must have happened to him.
Her search for answers will force her to confront her past, something that she has been running from for a very long time.

Pre-order your copy ahead of the event here.
