JOFFE BOOKS: What their authors think. Day 4 – Janice Frost #TeamJoffeBooks

Today is Day 4 in my JOFFE BOOKS Rolling Blog and in the spotlight today is JANICE FROST.  Janice writes the bestselling DS MERRY & DI NEAL SERIES.  As always I will start with the authors thoughts on working with Joffe Books and then a bit about the books and the author.

WORKING WITH JOFFE BOOKS

When I was looking for a publisher for my first detective novel, Dead Secret, I was attracted to Joffe Books because of their open submissions policy. I remember how thrilling it was to read my first email from Jasper, saying that he’d like to work with me. Since then, I’ve realised that I wasn’t just lucky to have found a publisher for my work, but to have found this publisher.

Being a newbie, I was worried about everything, from signing a contract to dealing with the edited version of my book. I needn’t have worried. Right from the start, I felt supported and encouraged. Jasper dealt personally with all my questions, no matter how basic. I imagine he must have rolled his eyes a few times!

With Joffe books, you can be confident that the final version of your book will be the very best it can be. The editing process is rigorous, and Jasper and his team work tirelessly to ensure that every detail is right before a book is published. I love that I’m consulted about every decision along the way.

I’ve learned that although you write a book in isolation, it’s a team effort to get it out there. I consider myself very lucky indeed to be part of such a great team, which also includes other Joffe writers and all the wonderful bloggers who do so much to promote out books on Social Media.

JANICE FROSTBiography

I am the author of four crime/mystery books featuring Detectives Jim Neal and Ava Merry. My novels are set in the fictitious East Midlands cathedral city of Stromford.

Dead Secret sees Jim and Ava pairing up to investigate the murder of a teenage girl. It is their first major case together and the two soon discover that they have very different personalities. Neal is intellectual and considered, Ava clever and occasionally reckless. Both are passionate about the job they do but have to work hard at being an effective team.

Dead Secret reached #13 in the Amazon Kindle Store and Dark Secret reached #10. Both books spent several weeks in the Top 100. Her Husband’s Secret was published in November 2016 and the fourth book in the series, Their Fatal Secrets in November 2017. A fifth book is underway.

I am originally from West Lothian in Scotland but moved to London in my early twenties. I lived and worked in the East End for ten years before moving to Lincolnshire where I currently live with my husband and two grown-up sons. When not reading or writing, I enjoy walking in the hills absorbing the scenery.

I am delighted to be published by the wonderful Joffe Books.
