The Nesting giveaway!





My box of finished copies of The Nesting arrived on Thursday and I am over the moon with how they look. Hard to believe that publication day is just one month away!! (2 weeks if you’re in the US!) I’m so excited for this book. It’s a slightly different genre to what I usually write, with a much more overt gothic slant, which I feel is very of the moment.

"So the whole telling stories back-and-forth in time thing is becoming a constant in books right about now. While I don't like when devices are used too much, it works with some stories, this being one of them. We have the story of Liv, who is commiss" Read more of this review »

Quotes by C.J. Cooke  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Forgiveness is a kind of time travel, only better, because it sutures the wounds of the past with the wisdom of the present in the same moment as it promises a better future.”
C.J. Cooke, The Lighthouse Witches

“We form stories about our lives to create meaning out of them—without meaning, they feel shapeless and without purpose. When something lies beyond the realm of meaning, it’s terrifying.”
C.J. Cooke, The Lighthouse Witches

“Life continues outrageously, in whatever form it can. An unstoppable circularity: the past always in the present.”
C.J. Cooke, The Lighthouse Witches

“Sometimes the imagination is the true predator.”
Carolyn Jess-Cooke, The Boy Who Could See Demons

“This is the thing with depression, and particularly with antipsychotics—your internal clock goes AWOL, as does your libido, hunger, balance, focus, sense of humor, and short-term memory.”
C.J. Cooke, The Nesting
