Local Author to Launch Her Latest Book on Hayling Island
- Tue 16th Jan 2007
The NEW Marine Mystery from local author, Pauline Rowson, In For The Kill is being launched at a book signing at the Hayling Island Bookshop on Saturday 10 February.
In For The Kill has already attracted a lot of interest from within the book trade after being extensively covered in The Bookseller, the trade magazine for the book industry, and Pauline has been voted ‘Author of the Month’ for January by Hampshire Libraries.
During 2006 Pauline’s novels were championed by the UK’s leading bookseller, Waterstone’s, and to complete a great year, ‘Tide Of Death’ was also featured in the exclusive selection of Christmas books published for the whole book trade by Bertram’s, the main wholesalers to the independent book trade in the UK.
Pauline scored a major success with her popular marine mystery novels whilst attending the world’s biggest book fair in Frankfurt on October 4 and 5. She sold the international rights to ‘In Cold Daylight’ and her new marine mystery thriller ‘In For the Kill’ to Indonesia and has also signed agreements for their distribution and that of her Inspector Andy Horton novel, ‘Tide of Death’ to Singapore, Malaysia and Brunei. Her novels are already on sale in South Africa and the Philippines.
Pauline, who lives on Hayling Island, ran her own marketing and public relations company for many years and is now a writer. As well as her marine mysteries, she is the author of several marketing, self help and motivational books. These are already published across the world.
Marie Telford, owner of the Hayling Island Bookshop, says “We are really excited that Pauline is launching her latest book on Hayling. In addition to being featured by all the big players in the book trade, she is strong supporter of independent booksellers and publishers. This is a great opportunity for her fans new and old to meet Pauline and talk to her about her work”.
In For the Kill is set in Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight.
Pauline will be at The Hayling Island Bookshop, 34 Mengham Road from 10.30am to 1pm on Saturday 10th February.
