A welcome return to Fiction Books for author Jane Cable, with the release of her second novel. She has also put together an interesting guest post about CHINDI writing – Intrigued? then why not stop by very soon and check out what this great concept is all about, Jane gives just a hint or two in her profile below!
‘THE FAERIE TREE’
In the summer of 1986 Izzie and Robin hold hands around the Faerie Tree on the banks of the river Hamble and wish for a future together, but just hours later tragedy strikes and they do not see each other again for twenty years.
In the winter of 2006 Izzie spots a down and out on the streets of Winchester – a man who looks very familiar…
The Faerie Tree pieces together Robin’s and Izzie’s stories and the people they have now become, but it becomes increasingly clear that their memories of twenty years before are completely different. Whose version of the past is right? And what part does the Faerie Tree play in their story? Following on from the success of The Cheesemaker’s House, Jane Cable once again mixes mystery and romance with a sprinkling of folklore to keep you turning the pages from beginning to end.
AUTHOR JANE CABLE
I can’t say that the publication of The Cheesemaker’s House (Matador, 2013) changed my life – very few authors can – but it certainly changed my perception of myself as a novelist.
No longer was I writing for my own pleasure – as I had done for years – I was now expecting complete strangers to part with their hard earned cash to read my words. The pressure to perform was increased further – although in a delightful way – by the hugely positive reception the book had from readers, reviewers and book bloggers. Now there were other expectations to meet as well as my own.
The biggest change since The Cheesemaker’s House is that I am no longer running my accountancy business alone as my husband quit his finance role in a plc to join me. It’s certainly taken a great deal of the pressure off me but the downside is that I no longer have the time I had when he was travelling, working stupidly long hours and commuting, to fiddle around on social media and to write.
Another big change is that I have joined Chindi Authors, a group of independently published writers in Chichester, close to where I live. There is so much more we can achieve together than we can on our own – we even held a stall at the city’s Christmas market which one writer could never have done successfully.
Now that The Faerie Tree has been released I am juggling a great deal of marketing with writing the first draft of my next book. 66,000 words in and counting, it’s the tale of a mother and son who are haunted by a World War II tragedy which happened sixty years before.
