Today's Book Launch - Ripper, My Love by Glynis Smy


"Today writer/poet, Glynis Smy adds author/novelist to her name. Her debut novel Ripper, My Love, is launched in eBook format and paperback. The genre for this love story falls into the one of Historical Romance Suspense. 

Growing up in late nineteenth century East London,Kitty Harper’s life is filled with danger and death – from her mother, her beloved neighbour and the working women of the streets. With her ever-watchful father and living surrogate family though, Kitty feels protected from harm. In fact, she feels so safe that while Whitechapel cowers under the cloud of a fearsome murderer, she strikes out on her own, moving into new premises to accommodate her sewing business. But danger is closer than she thinks. In truth, it has burrowed itself right into her heart in the form of a handsome yet troubled bachelor, threatening everything she holds dear. Will Kitty fall prey to lust – and death – herself, or can she find the strength inside to fight for her business, sanity and her future? And who is the man terrifying the streets of East London?

Glynis was born and raised in England, in the coastal town of Dovercourt, near the port of Harwich (where the captain of the Mayflower lived). After qualifying as a nurse, she married her school friend, and they produced three children. During her rare quiet moments, she wrote poetry and articles for magazines. In 2005 she and her husband emigrated to Cyprus for a new life in the sun. It was here that Glynis lay down her cross stitch and started making writing friends on the Internet. With their support and encouragement she shared her poetry, and was successful in a few contests. She shared a short story with a friend, who wrote back telling her it was worthy of becoming a novel, and not to waste the premise upon a brief plot. The story is the one being launched today. Glynis found her love of writing 19th Century, historical romances and her second novel, Maggie's Child, will be published at the end of 2012

Aside from writing and cross stitch, Glynis enjoys creating greetings cards, and sells them to raise funds for a small hospice in Cyprus. One of her pleasures is to sit on the back porch with a glass of wine, and reflect upon her good life. She can often be heard chatting to new characters urging her forward. Her desire to pay back those who had supported her is realised in a blog designed specifically to promote the books of others: New Book Blogger http://newbookblogger.blogspot.com

You can find her personal writing blog at http://glynissmy.com. Want to purchase a copy? Launch day price for the Kindle is 99c/77p on Amazon and the book is also on Amazon as a paperback.  It is also available at the Book Depository and Barnes and Noble."


Here's wishing you a successful launch with your fascinating book, Glynis and even more success with Maggie's Child
