Author Carol Thomas is celebrating after being told her latest novel, The Purrfect Pet Sitter, is to be published by an award-winning company.
Her new book is to be published by Ruby Fiction and follows the success of her first novel, Crazy Over You.
Carol attended a “meet the authors” event staged by publishers Choc Lit in Southampton last year and part of the event included the opportunity to pitch to an editor. After a brief interview, Choc Lit editor, Lusana Taylor invited Carol to send her latest book in to go forward to a panel of readers, who enjoy women’s fiction and provide feedback before publishing decisions are made.
Three months later, Carol was excited to get a call from Lyn Vernham, director of Choc Lit. Speaking about the moment, Carol said: “I was delighted to get the call, my book had received positive feedback from the panel, and they wanted to move forward with publishing it.
