Secrets of the River is here!

Jess McGlynnMay 19, 2015

Nearly two years after I sat in the garden of a beautiful gite in the South of France and scribbled out some notes for the characters which had been wandering around in my head for so much longer…18 months after James bravely believed in me and worked out how I could quit my job to pursue writing full time without casting us into the depths of poverty…and just a few months after I pressed the final full stop on the last line…Secrets of the River has been released!

If you’d like to buy Secrets of the River you can find it on Amazon UK and

Release day wasn’t anything monumental; I went shopping, had some nice lunch (as it was also my birthday) and tried not to constantly refresh the page to see whether anyone had decided to buy it already.  It didn’t really work and I should apologise to anyone who walked into the back of me as I stopped abruptly on the high street to check and double check.

Better yet, when I got home the postman had been and delivered a proof copy of the paperback.  Possibly the best birthday present yet (sorry James).

Massive thanks to everyone who has supported me in this.  Now I just need to hope that people like it enough to leave reviews, to tell other people and maybe to share about it too.
