"Are you good-natured, dear?"

CROSS-POSTED FROM MY OWN BLOG, IF THAT'S OK!


More about Trades of the Flesh
Buy from Amazon through my webstore


Goodness, it's here. Trades of the Flesh is officially out in the world, making bookshops and webstores everywhere that little bit seedier. I'm sniffing with pride.

To mark the occasion, I have popped the lovely Melanie's guest blog cherry with a little bit of nattering about "ladybirds", "motts" - Victorian prostitutes to you and me. Melanie is also very kindly hosting a little competition in which you can win a copy of Trades complete with a signed bookplate. The rules are in the post, and you can enter in the comments...if you're in the mood to confess your own shady doings!

By the way, Melanie's blog makes for fascinatingly eclectic reading and is always beautifully illustrated to boot, so if history and art are your cup of tea and you haven't checked her out yet, you should. She has also used blogging as a medium to publish the first part of her Journal of Marie-Antoinette series of novels, which is also terrific reading.

Thanks Melanie!

Big congrats, Faye. I've said it before, but this is a fantastic cover.
Quick question though, if I were to walk into Waterstones, where would I find it? It looks to me as though Trades wouldn't look out of place in the horror section judging by the cover, though judging by the content it's more weighted towards the "General" or "Historical Fiction" section. Either way, I'll be sure to hunt down a copy in the coming days.
Again, congratulations and hope it does well.

Congratulations, Faye, and very good luck with the new book.

Thanks guys! Matt, I'd look in historical fiction (or general fiction if your Waterstones doesn't have a specific historical fiction section). It's a dark historical novel, but there aren't any ghosts (not even Molly Hamilton ghosts!), vampires or possessed carriages in there.

Who's in charge of changing the "This month's publication" box these days? David? Tim?
