category_diary80I’m so delighted – in ten days time Bone by Bone will be out in paperback! My other exciting news about the paperback release is that it’ll be in Sainsburys! You’ll be able to pick up a copy with your tea bags and chocolate Hobnobs!

The paperback has a few additions: a Bone by Bone – Author Q&A with me, some book club questions and the prologue to The Stolen Child – in case I can tempt you to pick up a copy!

I’m also thrilled that Audible have bought the rights to turn it, and The Stolen Child, into audio books! I’m a big fan of the form – I listen to books most days. I’ll let you know who the narrator is going to be!


What do you think of audio books? Do you like them or do you think the narrator can distract from the story?

The Stolen Child

Sanjida Kay : August 17, 2016 11:58 am : Writing




I’ve just finished the edits and copy edits for my second thriller, The Stolen Child!


   They stole my child from me.

And now I want her back…


For those unaware of the various lengthy processes a  novel goes through, after I’ve handed the manuscript in, my editor highlights areas that could be improved and I have another go at reworking those sections to her satisfaction. I finished that bit the day before going on  holiday – phew!

Here are my favourite summer thriller recommendations, that will be perfect for down time, whether you’re by the sea or up a mountain
