Hi
My new novel When We Were Friends (originally published as A Serpentine Affair) launches here in the UK and most Commonwealth countries tomorrow (April 23rd). Here's what's being said so far:

"Clever, intriguing, chilling - and utterly impossible to put down. Tina Seskis is proving herself to be master of the twist." (Grazia)

"There's a poignant air of nostalgia about the sections set in the w... Read more of this blog post »

Tina Seskis and 4 other people liked Sandra's review of The Honeymoon:
The Honeymoon by Tina Seskis
"I am so conflicted about this book.

It would be a lie if I said it was badly written. It was not, if anything far from it.

-The setting was beautiful, yet claustrophic.
-The pace was good.
-The plot well worked out.
-There was a big twist at the end.

The Honeymoon by Tina Seskis
"This is how a thriller should be done! It builds momentum nonstop, alternates time periods that keeps it fresh & literally leaves you guessing how it's all going to unfold to the very last few pages. Brilliant!!! "

A Serpentine Affair by Tina Seskis
“It was the scale, the extremity of things here that made an impression on her: the two beds in their double room that could comfortably sleep three people each; the throaty clunking of the machine down the corridor that ejected fat glinting ice cubes, tumbling like coins from a jackpotting fruit machine; the toothache temperature of the Cokes from the mini bar (she had never known drinks to be so cold); the improbable proportions of the cars on the freeway; the sleek gleefulness of the morning TV presenters with drawls so sassy they sounded put on; the enormity of the breakfasts and the people who ate them. America seemed souped-up to JoAnne, as though it had to be bigger, better, colder, hotter, cheerier, louder, just all-round “er” than everywhere else.”

“When they finally leave me alone I find that I'm beyond feeling, beyond caring, I'm in a place deep in my mind that feels safe and warm, where nothing can go wrong, because it already has, every last thing that can.”
Tina Seskis, One Step Too Far

“It was the scale, the extremity of things here that made an impression on her: the two beds in their double room that could comfortably sleep three people each; the throaty clunking of the machine down the corridor that ejected fat glinting ice cubes, tumbling like coins from a jackpotting fruit machine; the toothache temperature of the Cokes from the mini bar (she had never known drinks to be so cold); the improbable proportions of the cars on the freeway; the sleek gleefulness of the morning TV presenters with drawls so sassy they sounded put on; the enormity of the breakfasts and the people who ate them.

Tina Seskis, A Serpentine Affair

“just fuck off and go away. 61 Caroline had felt a peculiar sense of triumph when she’d seduced her twin sister’s husband. She’d thought he was fair game. Emily had abandoned him after all, and the fact that Ben’s desire for her, Caroline, had been so intense and all-consuming, well, it had made her feel”
Tina Seskis, One Step Too Far

“Go for broke. Always try and do too much. Dispense with safety nets. Take a deep breath before you begin talking. Aim for the stars. Keep grinning. Be bloody-minded. Argue with the world. And never forget that writing is as close as we get to keeping a hold on the thousand and one things--childhood, certainties, cities, doubts, dreams, instants, phrases, parents, loves--that go on slipping , like sand, through our fingers.”
Salman Rushdie, Imaginary Homelands: Essays and Criticism 1981-1991

“The past is never where you think you left it.”
Katherine Anne Porter

“For you, I was a chapter. For me, you were the book.”
Tom McNeal
