A Blurb for THE CORNISH HOUSE and Publicity

Just checking on Amazon, as one does, and saw the new blurb is up....here

When artist Maddie inherits a house in Cornwall shortly after the death of her husband, she hopes it will be the fresh start she and her step-daughter Hannah desperately need. Trevenen is beautiful but neglected, a rambling house steeped in history. Maddie is enchanted by it and determined to learn as much as she can about its past. As she discovers the stories of generations of women who've lived there before, Maddie begins to feel her life is somehow intertwined within its walls. But Maddie's dream of a calm life in the countryside is far from the reality she faces. Still struggling with her grief and battling with Hannah, Maddie is unable to find inspiration for her painting and realises she may face the prospect of having to sell Trevenen, just as she is coming to love it. And as Maddie and Hannah pull at the seams of Trevenen's past, the house reveals secrets that have lain hidden for generations. This gorgeously sweeping debut from Liz Fenwick is touched with romance and mystery, a perfect summer read.

Definitely a pinch me moment! As was meeting with my publicist, my publicist (just had to say that again) yesterday. It was exciting...work to be done...hard market to get any press for Women's Fiction especially for a début...but will try...now I need to think what's special about me - hard task at any time...any thoughts will be gratefully received!

How exciting for you, Liz! You have a really interesting background and a terrific life-style, both of which must be a publicist's dream. And you could wear a black bin-liner and look terrific in it. They'll have a field day.
