Book Signings 2020: The Lonely Wife

Many of you have been in touch to ask if you will be able to get your book signed this year but due to restrictions you will probably be aware that the launch of The Lonely Wife will not be a book signing event this year. I will most definitely miss meeting you all as I do look forward to it but we must put our health and the safety of others first.


However, all is not lost as I do have some good news. I have teamed up with Waterstones Hull (01482 580234) and they have agreed that if anybody wants their book signing or a personalised message written inside then you can pre-order The Lonely Wife now, leave your message and you will then be notified when your signed copy is available to collect. I will be calling in to sign the books, behind closed doors upon delivery.


It's very sad that I won't be able to see you all in person but thanks to the power of technology, we can all keep in touch online. Thank you all so much for your kind words on my books and your continued support and I hope to see you all when we return to normality. Love Val x
