CONGRATULATIONS! I am so excited to share that A J Wills, one of my fabulously talented authors, has been shortlisted for The Selfies Book Awards 2023!
Oh my goodness, I’m so proud! Adrian works tirelessly on his books – they aren’t just gripping but explore the human condition so intensely that each one is a truly thought-provoking as well irresistible.
The Selfies Awards were created to celebrate the best in self-publishing and are judged on the quality of the writing; the production values of the book; an enticing cover and blurb that successfully addresses the target audience; and an effective and creative marketing and publicity strategy that has the potential for great sales.
Adrian was nominated previously in 2021 with HIS WIFE’S SISTER, alongside another of my authors, Simon McCleave and the shortlist is just as strong this year!
Finalists are announced at London Book Fair next month, but if you haven’t read it yet, grab your copy now!

THE SECRETS WE KEEP by AJ Wills
“Brilliantly dark, insidious, and unpredictable” – Kiersten Modglin, bestselling author of The Arrangement
A missing girl. A trial by media.
Cathy never thought she’d be one of those mothers crying for her missing daughter on the evening news.
But when 10-year-old Annie fails to make it home from school and her whole world is turned upside down, she’s forced to make the toughest decision of her life.
Either face the cameras, betray her father and risk revealing the secrets that could tear her family apart.
Or refuse to engage with the media and pray they don’t start asking awkward questions.
Time is running out. Hopes of finding Annie alive are fading fast.
Cathy must do something.
Because someone, somewhere must know what’s happened to her daughter.
After all, children don’t just vanish into thin air – do they?
But be warned – this is no ordinary missing child story.
The Secrets We Keep is a shocking psychological thriller with a heart-wrenching twist that will keep you guessing right up to the last page.
“A fast paced thriller. Pulls you in from page one and doesn’t let go!” – Daniel Hurst, bestselling author of The Passenger
“Clever psychological thriller that grips you right until the end” – Miranda Rijks, bestselling author of Forget Me Not
“Twists and turns that kept me guessing and characters that made me feel every gut-wrenching emotion. I couldn’t put this down from the first page to the last.” – Cathryn Grant, author of The Favorite Child
