I was fortunate enough to be called into an interview with the charismatic Paul Stone who works for Radio Reverb in Brighton. The interview was about an hour long and the main subject was my novel, Just Two Weeks. Especially selected music to match the mood of my novel was played in between sections and we talked about this and that while the music ran its course. To be honest it was less like an interview and more like a chat. We broached other subjects including this blog, my disability, what inspires me to write, whether or not I am a bohemian. Oh yes. I did a reading from my novel too! His colleague intercepted occasionally to put across his views of blogs and life in general, and to introduce the next interview with the band Red Diesel. And the entire interview took place while a large dog who had initially jumped up top greet me, slept peacefully at my feet.
I was sorry when the time was up.
As he says – sit back with a glass of wine/cup of coffee/tea and have a listen….
P.S. Because Molly our cat was mentioned I gave the interview her picture.
I said my next post would be about the inspiration for my novel Just Two Weeks. Well true to my word here it is. I will start off by saying it was a visit to Sri Lanka which inspired me. Raven Reviews offered me a guest post about the inspiration for my book. They posted it on their blog and included some excellent photos which really depict my words well. You can read it here.
One of the best psychological thrillers she’s read, the reviewer said. Praise indeed! Read it here.
Interview about my new psychological thriller Just Two Weeks
On 17h October the day after my book launch I had an interview with Sarah Gorrell on Radio Sussex/Surrey Drivetime about my novel ‘Just Two Weeks’. It’s been a month but I’ve only just found out how to put the interview on Sound Cloud! Sarah Gorrell is a great interviewer and she really put me at my ease. Click on Drivetime to hear the interview!
I got this review of my novel from Jack Magnus of Reader’s Favourite. I thought I’d also post a photo of me reading at my book launch!
‘Amanda Sington-Williams’ psychological thriller, Just Two Weeks, is suspenseful and exciting. Jo’s idyllic two weeks in paradise becomes a disorienting and terrifying ordeal. Sington-Williams swiftly immerses the reader in her protagonist’s place, alone with no money in a strange culture, and haunted by a woman whom she supposedly knows. Even after Jo gets back home, everything is strange and altered. Raquel is actively stalking her, and Mark seems strangely complicit. Just Two Weeks feels a lot like a Hitchcock thriller — it keeps the tension up and the reader can’t help but keep on reading and experiencing Jo’s fear first-hand. I had a grand time reading this book. Sington-Williams is a marvelous writer, and her plot is tight, fast-paced and compelling. Just Two Weeks is very highly recommended’.
