First review of my ‘not yet published’ psychological thriller JUST TWO WEEKS

Great new review for my psychological thriller: JUST TWO WEEKS

ImageKate Rhodes author of Alice Quentin series,  wrote  of Just Two Weeks: ‘Amanda Sington- Williams writes beautifully. Her deftly crafted psychological novel Just Two Weeks shows what can happen  when a beachside holiday descends into danger and emotional chaos. She creates really believable characters and the story is engrossing as it chases to its shocking conclusion.’

Just Two Weeks will be published in September

Another novel?

Image After I’d spent two years (well actually it was more than that) sweating, tearing my hair out, despairing, I decided that was it. No more. I’d spend the time doing other things. Have some fun! But no, A plan began to form in my brain. Another idea. The bug has returned. Or maybe it never went. Perhaps it was just fooling me and lying dormant. So the hard work starts again….

Copy editors, the unsung heroes. (Just Two Weeks has been copy edited)

I’ve just had my novel ‘copy editingJust Two Weeks’ copy edited. ‘Oh thanks,’ I said as I handed over the full manuscript. ‘But there won’t be many errors. I must have read it 100 times and I know it so well I probably could recite it all by heart.’ (joke). But no, the copy editor found sentences which would benefit from a changed word. She found missing dialogue marks and commas. There were double spaces which she dutifully deleted. Now there is not one mistake. I reckon copy editors are the unsung heroes of all writing. Where would we be without them?

News about my published novel

It seems that my publishers have been busy selling foriegn rights for my novel, The Eloquence of Desire.  Good work for an independant publshers without the clout of the established biggies, never mind the recent giants.

My book is with agents that represent China, Tawain and Korea, Malayasia, France. And a publisher in Hungary  has shown interest.  It’s already been translated into Turkish and sold there with a different title.

I take my hat off to them. They know how to do business!
