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.

Great new review for my psychological thriller: JUST TWO WEEKS
Kate 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
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….
I’ve just had my novel ‘Just 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?
My short story ‘A Mother’s Love’ is published in an anthology ‘The Dark Bard’
A Mother’s Love’ is a story about a mother’s long train journey to visit her son in prison.
She believes he is innocent and sees the man she thinks stitched her son up during the journey.
What should she do?

Tom Chalmers, Managing Director at IPR License, commented: “The quality of the work shortlisted was suitably high and this is reflected in the fact that a top agency like Andrew Lownie immediately spotted Amanda’s potential.

And we very much look forward to working closely with Amanda in the future.”
