Later, as a struggling writer, borrowing books was the only way to feed a voracious reading habit. So it’s wonderful now – and a little unreal – when my books are borrowed from libraries. Many libraries have chosen ‘Sister’ or ‘Afterwards’ as their book club choice which has made me tremendously proud. I’d like to particularly thank the following libraries and librarians for their support both in the UK and in the USA, either by their staff picking and reviewing the books, or for making Sister or Afterwards a book club choice.
Special thanks to…
University Library Loughbourough
Porthcawl Library reading group
New Malden and Old Malden libraries
Perth and Kinross libraries
Salt Lake County Library
Warren Public Library – USA
Kearney Public Library, Arizona
Mission Library – Tucson
Mandel Public Library – West Palm Beach
INgleby Barwick Library
Jones Lbrary – Massachusetts
Warwickshire College Library
The Fairbanks Library Bookclub
Columbus Metropolitan Library (info from the Columbus Dispatch)
In the UK authors are calling for ‘a library in every school’ legislation. Surely every child should be able to leave where he or she is from – wherever that might be – and have the same open door into the world of books.

'Sister' has been chosen by Target to be their book club book. It has also been selected by New York Times Book Review for their 'Paperback Row' – the only novel in the selection. It has also been chosen by New York Public library as a best thriller. Congratulations Rosamund.

Just heard that 'Sister' will be published in paperback on the 20th December . I've seen the cover and the quotes gave me a shiver. Thank you to Christine Kopprasch, my editor in the US, and the team at Crown. Am hoping someone will snap its pic in a bookstore and send it to me!
