Cover Reveal: ‘After the Lie’ by Kerry Fisher

Posted February 1, 2016 by thischickreads in cover reveal / 4 Comments

Hi guys,

sorry for the radio silence, there’s been a lot going on in my life (all good, nothing to worry) and unfortunately that left me with no time for blogging or hanging around on social media. It hasn’t got any quieter, however today I’m back for a very special reason. If you’re an old follower, you already know I adore Bookouture as a publisher and up till now I’ve enjoyed each of their books I’ve read. You might also be familiar with the fact that recently they’ve signed Kerry Fisher, who was previously published by Avon UK. Last year I had the opportunity to read her novel ‘The Island Escape’ and I absolutely enjoyed it! If you haven’t read it, I absolutely recommend it, it’s the perfect summer read (I know it’s not summer yet, but why not experience some warmth?) and you can read my review HERE. Today I have the pleasure to be one of the bloggers to do the cover reveal for Kerry’s upcoming novel with Bookouture, ‘After the Lie’, which sounds amazing and a bit stepping out of the comfort zone for Kerry, if I may say. However, I’m rather convinced I’m gonna love this one too, as Kerry is an amazingly talented writer. ‘After the Lie’ will be released on 29th April and I can’t wait to read it. I will leave the links for pre-order, and do let me know your thoughts on the cover. I think it’s gorgeous, but for some reason makes me feel a bit sad. What do you think?

An addictive and gripping read about love, life and living a lie …
One little lie can make one big difference …

Lydia has the ‘right’ kind of friends, her children are at the ‘right’ kind of school and she’s married to the ‘right’ sort of man – kind, steady, reliable Mark. Her wedding business is flourishing and even though she is at loggerheads with her mother, she couldn’t ask for anything more from life.

But the truth is that Lydia has been lucky. She has been living a lie for years and Mark has no idea who he is really married to. But nothing lasts forever and the past has a funny way of catching up with the present. When the person who knows all of Lydia’s dark little secrets turns up at the school gates, his presence threatens to blow Lydia’s life apart.

What is Lydia’s terrible truth? Once the secret is out, you can’t put it back …




About Kerry Fisher

Born in Peterborough, Kerry Fisher studied French and Italian at Bath University, followed by several years working as an English teacher in Corsica and Spain before topping the dizzying heights of holiday rep and grape picker in Tuscany. She eventually succumbed to 'getting a proper job' and returned to England to study Periodical Journalism at City University. After two years working in the features department at Essentials magazine in London, love carried her off to the wilds of the West Pennine moors near Bolton. She now lives in Surrey with her husband (of whisking off to Bolton fame), two teenagers and a very naughty lab/schnauzer called Poppy. Kerry can often be seen trailing across the Surrey Hills whistling and waving pieces of chicken while the dog practises her 'talk to the tail'.

Kerry has spent half her life talking about writing a novel, then several years at Candis magazine reviewing other people's but it wasn't until she took some online courses with the UCLA (University of California) that the dream started to morph into reality, culminating in the publishing of The Class Ceiling. The Avon imprint of HarperCollins picked it up and retitled it The School Gate Survival Guide, published summer 2014. Her second book, The Island Escape, came out in May 2015. It won first prize at the York Festival of Writing for the opening line: 'I was wearing the wrong bra for sitting in a police cell'.

Best advice ever received: 'This is fiction, we can skip the boring bits.' Lynn Hightower, UCLA Writers' Program.
