Hi John
That's a great question. I thought long and hard about submitting my fiction novel to publishers before I sent it. Self publishing was certainly plan B should things not work out. I'm so glad I self published Paranormal Intruder as it gave me a fantastic insight into how it all works. But it's also incredibly time consuming marketing, publishing and being entirely responsible for your own book. I wanted to work with a publishers that would help me with that side of things, giving me more time to write lots more books. I'm confident they will also introduce my work to a whole new audience, and it's fantastic being able to work with such professional people such as the crime editors, cover designers and marketing experts. Not all publishers provide such lavish attention to detail as Bookouture though, so I would advise anyone trying to decide whether to self publish or sign for a deal to research as much as they can, and get their contracts checked before signing.

Cover Reveal – Left For Dead

I’m so pleased to share the cover for the third book in my DI Amy Winter series, left for dead.





Drumroll…









What do you think? I love how the cover represents the story, which begins with a young woman found in a shop window display. Here’s a snippet from the book…





“In the midst of the busy London streets, a sense of quiet awe descended as shoppers took in the display. A pearl-encrusted tiara sa

Caroline Mitchell I'm thrilled to announce my latest book The Silent Twin has been added to Goodreads and Amazon. I'm so excited about this book!

The Silent Twin by Caroline Mitchell

I’m alone in the dark, please can you find me …

Nine-year-old twins Abigail and Olivia vow never to be parted. But when Abigail goes missing from Blackwater Farm, DC Jennifer Knight must find her before it’s too late.

Twin sister Olivia has been mute since Abigail’s disappearance. But when she whispers in Jennifer’s ear, Jennifer realises it is Abigail’s voice pleading to be found.

A damp and decaying house set in acres of desolate scrubland, the farm is a place of secrets, old and new – and Jennifer must unravel them all in order to find the lost girl. But could Olivia’s bond with her twin hold the key to finding Abigail? And can Jennifer break through her silence in time to save her sister’s life?
