I’m delighted to announce I’ve signed a new two book deal with Bookouture!
For everyone who has enjoyed my Detective Madison Harper series so far (Shadow Falls and Cry For Help) and is eagerly awaiting the next book, I can now reveal that book 3 is due to be released in July 2021. Keep an eye out for the cover reveal and pre-order link within the next month or so!
Plus, I’m currently writing a standalone crime/psychological thriller and that will be released in February 2022. Instead of a police procedural this will follow the family at the heart of the crime more than the police who try to solve it. There will still be a detective investigating the case, but we’ll get an intimate and disquieting look inside a family’s turmoil as their secrets are revealed and we discover what really happened. And that’s all I can say for now!
Here’s the official press release from my publisher:
Bookouture are beyond excited to announce that they have signed two more crime thrillers from Wendy Dranfield. Associate Publisher Jessie Botterill has secured a new contract with Wendy Dranfield for World all language rights (including audio, film and TV) for two new crime titles; the third in her series featuring Detective Madison Harper and P.I. Nate Monroe, and a standalone thriller.
Jessie said of the deal,
‘Since the moment I first signed Wendy I’ve been completely blown away by her incredible work ethic and drive to understand her audience. She really pushes hard to give readers something fresh and exciting with every turn of the page, and you only need to look at the reviews to see how much readers adore her books. She deserves every bit of the success that I know is coming her way. I’m a very lucky editor!’
‘I’m delighted to be working with Jessie and Bookouture on two more books. I’ve loved writing the Detective Madison Harper series and readers are clearly enjoying Madison and Nate’s adventures so I can’t wait to release book 3 in the series this summer. Bookouture’s fast-paced publishing suits me well because I can’t stop coming up with new book ideas.’
I hope you’re as excited as me for these latest books!
