New On The Shelf This Week

This week sees Goodreads Giveaway win number 13 featured as new on my shelf.

Just in case you are superstitious, don’t worry, as win number 14 is on its way as I write 🙂

KILLING EVA – An Eva Scott thriller

Witnessing a dramatic death at London’s Waterloo station triggers a series of events that shatter Eva Scott’s world.

Dying words uttered on the station concourse awaken a history she had thought long buried. But the past is about to be resurrected, in all its brutal reality.

Soon, Eva’s life is out of her hands. A genetic key is keeping her alive – but foreshadowing her death. People she loved and lost materialise and then disappear, testing the limits of her sanity. Inextricably linked to her survival, and the lives of many others, is the potential takedown of an economic power.

The only way out is through. But Eva’s life is no longer her own. And it’s killing her.

Writing makes me feel very vulnerable! No matter how hard I try to remove bits of myself, people still say “Oh! I know so much more about you after reading that.” I’m not sure what they think they’re learning! But there’s no doubt that you can get clues about an author from their work. I didn’t really think about that when I started to write, I just wanted to tell a story.

Alex Blackmore was born in north London, raised in Somerset, and returned to her spiritual home in the north of the capital after a stint at Nottingham University and a year or so of wanderlust.

She divides her time between writing books, copywriting for various publications and running The Glass Pineapple, an online fashion retail start-up, championing new designers and emerging brands. Prior to that she was a practicing finance lawyer in the City, specialising in acquisition finance.

Today, Alex is based between London, Winchester and various planes, trains and automobiles.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
