The Nesting giveaway!

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.

The Nesting by C.J.  Cooke
"Incredible. Beautiful, haunting and so realistic even though the subject matter at times wasn't. The toss between whether the events were human or supernatural and the beautiful folklore style writing was just captivating. Read it in a day!"

The Nesting by C.J.  Cooke
"So fucking good! Definitely one of my favorite thrillers of the year - it has such Turn of the Key / The Haunting of Bly Manor vibes. I’m absolutely obsessed with this. All the imagery of the elk and the idea of this river really freaked me out and g" Read more of this review »

The Nesting by C.J.  Cooke
“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.”

The Nesting by C.J.  Cooke

C.J. Cooke, The Nesting

“Parenthood is so difficult. You think that, you know, if you do A plus B you"ll get C, but sometimes that is simply not the case. You get XYZ instead.”
C.J. Cooke, I Know My Name

“I didn’t get a medical note, so they sacked me. It was probably illegal, but the thing with illness, mental or otherwise, is that it tends to annihilate your capacity for argument.”
C.J. Cooke, The Nesting
