THE CHILD BETWEEN US by author ALISON RAGSDALE (debuts September 28th!)

My beautiful girl, you are my missing piece. You came into my life and changed everything, placing your warm little hand in mine, and looking up at me with your sky-blue eyes, so full of hope. Little did we know what lay ahead, but for a while at least, we had each other…

When I first met you, darling Marina, you were just five years old. You took my breath away, with your long, dark waves and pink cheeks. You needed me, and I instantly knew I’d do anything to protect you. When six years ago, my heart was shattered, I was left utterly broken – but I didn’t know just how lost I was until you filled that hole in my heart.

You quickly became the centre of my world, your sweet laugh my favourite sound.
 But then things started to change… I put my pain down to work stress, but when the diagnosis came through it was worse than I could ever have imagined.

Our world is about to come crashing down around us, little one, and I don’t know how to stop it. I’ve finally discovered the truth behind the betrayal that rocked me to my core all those years ago. The pain of my past could be the one thing that saves us – or tears us apart. We’re just becoming a family, Marina, should I risk everything to trust the one person who hurt me? They could be your only hope.

We only have each other… But if I don’t make it, what will happen to you?

The Child Between Us is a heart-wrenching story about an impossible choice and what it really means to be a mother. Readers who love Kate Hewitt, Jodi Picoult, and Diane Chamberlain will be utterly gripped.

Early reviews ~

 The book will grip you, and you won't be able to put it down until the book is read. The story is emotional, with the difficult choices, the losses, and the love that is there.  Even though I finished the book a while ago, this story has stayed with me, and I still think of Cassie. - Joan W. NetGalley Reviewer

 The Child Between Us was a gripping story about unconditional love and second chances. This story was an emotional rollercoaster in the best way possible. - Nikki L. NetGalley Reviewer

 THE CHILD BETWEEN US by Alison Ragsdale is a heart-wrenching and beautiful story of grief, love, family and forgiveness that held me captive from beginning to end. One thing I always love about Alison Ragsdale’s books is the complexity of emotions portrayed and the depth to which relationships are explored. This book is no exception. - Carla S. NetGalley Reviewer

 This was an emotional read for me.  It's been a long time since I have cried reading a book…What I loved best about this book is how well it is written as it was a fast-paced read.  Alison Ragsdale is a new author for me and now my favorite. - Cynthia N. NetGalley Reviewer

  Alison Ragsdale can always be counted on to bring all the emotions to the surface.  This story is another heartbreaker with lots of tender feelings threaded throughout...The characters are fully developed, and you can easily become attached to them all.  Lovely descriptions of the various places transport you away.  Highly recommend! - Cheryl C. NetGalley Reviewer

Author interview with Alison:

Tell us a little about yourself and how you started writing.

I’m a former marketing executive, and before that, in another life, a professional dancer. I started writing at 7 years old with a journal, and putting down words has been my go-to for decompressing for as long as I can remember. I first joined a writing group in 2013, which terrified me as it was the first time I had to share my work, but I learned so much. It was the best decision I ever took as regards my writing, and within a year, I had completed the initial draft of my first novel. I self-published it in 2014, and then my second later that year. In 2016, my third book was picked up by Lake Union Publishing, and since then, I have self-published other titles. I have been with Bookouture since 2019, am working on my fourth book with them, and loving that experience. It’s been a wonderful, scary, challenging, and rewarding journey, but I wouldn’t change a thing. 

What are some things you enjoy when not writing?

Aside from being an avid walker, I’m a major foodie and love to cook. My husband and I spend most Sundays in the kitchen, trying new recipes and ingredients. It’s become a weekly food date that we both look forward to as, for that time, we focus on the food and let go of all the stressors of the week.

How do you start your day (a routine of sorts?) 

I get up horribly early, as I’m not a good sleeper. First, I take care of Maddie, our sweet 16-year-old Pointer, who is a morning person ;) Then I make the all-important first cup of tea of the day. After breakfast, I walk Maddie and then go for another, longer walk myself. I average around 6 miles per day. It clears my head and sets me up for getting to work later in the morning.

Do you have a manuscript(s) in your drawer? If so, will it ever see the light of day?

I do. I wrote it around five years ago, but for some reason, I never tried to pitch it to my agent or publisher. I often think about that book and wonder if I should pull it out and re-read it, but my time is so limited with my current writing schedule I keep closing the drawer again. Maybe one day…


Do you have a go-to first reader after you feel your manuscript is ready?

My husband and two sisters read my books as I write them. I send them each chapter, and they send me their feedback. That helps me stay focused on the arc of the story and the pace, and not get lost in the weeds as I sometimes do with descriptions and complex inner dialogue. I value their input as they each have very different tastes in reading and perspectives that bring something valuable to the development of the book.


Is there a particular author or book that influenced or inspired your writing or decision to write?


There were a couple of authors who initially inspired me to write. (Now there are so many more). First was Mary Wesley - a British author who wrote her first book at 73. She was clever, feisty, and opinionated, as were her characters, and I admired that she wasn’t afraid to push boundaries, write the stories she wanted to write, and not be bound by societal constraints. Next, Elizabeth Berg was, and is, an ongoing inspiration to me. She has a magical way of taking a regular situation, day or life event and writing about it in a way that makes it utterly enthralling. I adore her books and her relatable characters.


What are you working on now?

I’m getting ready for the launch of The Child Between Us on September 28th. My publisher does a great job on marketing and promotion, but as most authors know, it still requires a good deal of work from me.

I’m also writing book number 11. I have a deadline of late November, so am chipping away at that one.


Do you have a favorite character?


I can’t say I have an overall favorite character across all my books, but my current favorite is Cassie in The Child Between Us. She is so strong in the face of a series of unimaginable challenges that pile one on top of the other. Throughout it all, she keeps her sense of humor, rolls her sleeves up, and tackles it all with grace and compassion. I admire her and hope to be her when I grow up ;)


What would your dream job be if you didn’t write books? (assuming this is your dream job!)

This is definitely my dream job. I pinch myself regularly to remind myself that I’m really doing this every single day.


What was some unique research you had to do for a book?

All my books are set in the stunning Highland and Islands of my homeland, Scotland. My parents still live there, and I love my trips home to see them, as I often tack on a few days to visit a particular location I’m planning to write about. One of my favorite trips was to the Isle of Skye when I was writing Finding Heather. I was lucky enough to have an old school friend living on the island, so she and her husband took my husband and me on a tour of ‘their’ Skye. It was a priceless experience to see it through their eyes. Almost getting blown off the side of a mountain, by gale-force winds, just added to the excitement.


Do you have any advice for aspiring writers?

Just start! I always say this, but I truly believe it’s good advice. Don’t be put off by worrying about what you think you ‘should’ be writing. Give yourself the license to write your own way, as long as you start to get something down. There will be lots of time to edit, develop, change and rewrite, but you won’t get there if you don’t start.

LAST PLACE SEEN, by author ALESSANDRA HARRIS (book debuted September 6th!)

In the aftermath of her husband’s life-altering mistake, Tiana Williams grapples with lingering resentment while working full-time and raising their toddler. But when Jay becomes a person of interest in the kidnapping of ten-year-old Zoe Miller, Tiana is torn between trusting her husband and believing the growing pile of evidence. After she gets dragged further into the mystery and discovers her connection to the missing girl, the shaky ground beneath her crumbles.

With the odds stacked against him, Jay does everything in his power to prove his innocence. Racing against the clock, he must uncover the truth about Zoe’s kidnapping before he loses everything he loves—including his freedom.

During a sweltering heat wave and a raging California wildfire, Tiana and Jay will stop at nothing to find Zoe, even if it means tearing apart their marriage and risking their own lives in the process.


"Explosive and filled with drama, Last Place Seen reads like a bingeable crime series, with secret lives, a kidnapping, misdirection, and enough family conflict to spark a wildfire." ~ Jennifer Klepper, USA Today Bestselling Author 

"Author Alessandra Harris doesn't miss a single trick in filling the narrative with tension, intrigue, and well-timed explosive developments, her sense of pacing underscoring the outstanding narrative throughout. The prose and descriptive writing set the book head and shoulders above other works in the genre, effectively using the sweltering Californian heat to add to the atmosphere and create a pressure cooker for the characters in which anything could happen at any moment." 
~ Reader's Favorite

"Alessandra Harris offers readers a first-rate thriller that wrestles with controversial issues and comes off victorious by means of an exceptionally well-structured storyline with some stunning twists... Sublime, compelling, nuanced, and wholly entertaining, Last Place Seen is an absolute must-read!" 
Indies Today

"...the pages fly by with major revelations and marital and family crises..." 
~ Kirkus Reviews

Author interview with Alessandra~

Tell us a little about yourself and how you started writing.

In 2007, I became a freelance writer for a San Francisco Bay Area publication geared toward the African American community named City Flight. I wrote feature essays, interviews, and event reviews. A couple years later my dad gave me three novels for Christmas, and he said I should write one. I told him I write nonfiction, but after reading the books, an idea for my first novel began to brew in my mind. In 2010, I joined a Intro to Creative Writing Class through my local adult education center. I also took a good number of online writing classes regarding craft. By 2014, I had completed my first novel, which would become my debut Blaming the Wind.

What are some things you enjoy when not writing?

I have a husband and four kids, so I enjoy spending time with them, attending their sporting and school events, reading, and hanging out with friends and family.

Finish this: “I can’t write without…” Coffee (of course :)

What career did you think you’d have as an adult?

When I was in junior high, I told people I wanted to be a talk show host like Oprah Winfrey. I grew up in the 80s and 90s during the heyday of talk shows like Oprah, Sally Jesse Raphael, Geraldo Rivero, Montell Williams. During the summer, I would stay up until 2am watching reruns of the days shows.

What is something about you that would surprise people?

I grew up playing chess, and in 7th grade, I won my school's chess tournament and was the Grandmaster. It was short lived because I lost in the championship game in eighth grade. The junior high teacher organizing the chess tournament talked about how great the game is and it is a lifelong skill to play. It came in handy because when my husband and I were dating, we would play chess on our dates! I still love chess and had a lot of fun watching The Queens Gambit on Netflix.  

What are you working on now?

I'm working on my first non-fiction book that is under contract with a Catholic publisher, Orbis Books. IT will examine the history and current manifestation of anti-Black racism in the United States from slavery to Jim Crow segregation to mass incarceration in the light of Christian teaching and the gospel message of justice and liberation. It has been a steep learning curve to research and write this book, but I am excited about the project.

IMPOSTER by author BRADEIGH GODFREY (debuts 9/13!)

Imposter is an Apple Best Books of September!

Two sisters, a lifetime of secrets...

Lilian and Rosie were once the closest of sisters, but the untimely death of their parents pulled them apart. Now, three years on, Rosie has reached out to her big sister, asking to meet. Driving on an icy road in the middle of a snowstorm, Rosie admits that she has something important to tell Lilian—a secret she describes as a matter of life and death. But before she has a chance to tell Lilian, a car careens into theirs, with devastating consequences.

Lilian survives unscathed, but Rosie is left with a traumatic brain injury, unable to communicate. Lilian is convinced that someone deliberately rammed Rosie’s car. But why? As Lilian begins to explore her sister’s past, she uncovers disturbing secrets that make her question if she ever really knew Rosie.

The closer Lilian comes to the truth, the more danger she and Rosie find themselves in. But Lilian is certain of one thing: she abandoned her little sister once before and will never do so again. Even if it means sacrificing everything.


Brimming with gasp-worthy surprises, Imposter is my favorite kind of thriller: twisty, unsettling, and emotionally rich. Bradeigh Godfrey expertly amplifies tension throughout her impressive, propulsive debut, one which culminates in an ending that even the most seasoned reader will not see coming.

Megan Collins, bestselling author of The Family Plot

As slick and slippery as a dark, icy road, Imposter has it all. With its rocket-paced plot, and deep dive into the abyss of family dysfunction and traumatic brain injury, Godfrey's deft debut grabs from the electric first pages and holds tight through the stunning conclusion. Tense, immersive, and smart, this is a must-read for fans of Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen.

Lisa Unger, New York Times bestselling author of Last Girl Ghosted

Suspense readers will swoon over Bradeigh Godfrey's Imposter, which is everything a psychological thriller should be: unsettling, totally immersive, and completely unpredictable, with flawless writing and characters that readers will identify and empathize with. Spine-chillingly, jaw-droppingly good!

Mary Kubica, New York Times bestselling author of Local Woman Missing

Author interview with Bradeigh~

Tell us a little about yourself and how you started writing.

I’m a physician and a mom of four, which means that I didn’t have time to write for a very long time. Or at least, I thought I didn’t. Medical training and babies felt so all-consuming that I stopped reading for fun or doing anything creative at all. But when my youngest was a baby, I started getting little urges to write down the stories that had always lived inside my head. For a long time, I ignored those urges—who was I to think I could write a novel? Besides, I was busy enough already. But the desire to write built and built until it felt like pressure inside my head, like my skull might actually burst. One day, during my daughter’s nap, I sat down and started writing. It was such a relief. The words kept flowing out of me, and I haven’t stopped since.

Finish this: “I can’t write without…”

I’ve had to train myself to write anywhere and everywhere, but ideally, I will have a scented candle burning, my Hydroflask full of water, and an icy-cold LaCroix on my desk.

Do you have a ‘day job’ as well?


Yes, I’m a physician specializing in physical medicine and rehabilitation. This means I take care of individuals with all sorts of injuries and disabilities: brain injuries, strokes, amputations, and more.


Do you have a manuscript(s) in your drawer? If so, will it ever see the light of day?


Yes! Several. Imposter was the fourth full-length manuscript that I wrote and polished. The first one will never see the light of day, but it taught me the basics of novel-writing, and several scenes from that manuscript are now part of Imposter. The second is a book that is still very close to my heart, but it’s more suspenseful women’s fiction than a true thriller, so we will see if I ever pull that one out again. The third manuscript is the one that landed me my agent, but when we went on submission, it didn’t sell, though we had several close calls. However, that book is going to be published next year as my second thriller, so things do have a way of working out!


Do you have a go-to first reader after you feel your manuscript is ready?


My critique partner, Alison Hammer, who is also my co-author in my other writing career (we write romantic women’s fiction under the pen name Ali Brady), reads everything I write. And Genevieve Gagne-Hawes, the in-house editor at my literary agency (Writers House), is brilliant at guiding my early drafts through revisions.



Can you tell us about your challenges in getting your book published?


I had a very long road to getting published. As I mentioned before, my fourth full-length manuscript finally landed me a book deal. I had queried three books before that. While that might sound sort of depressing (and it was, sometimes), I knew I was getting closer with each manuscript. When I queried the first one, I only got a few requests from agents, but the second had a fifty-percent request rate, which is quite good. That second manuscript also had multiple agents interested enough to ask me to revise and resubmit, and a few talked with me on the phone. 

I was just about to start revising the manuscript for those agents when I decided on a whim to participate in a Twitter pitch party (#PitMad) with my third manuscript, which I had recently finished. I ended up with four offers of representation. I figured I had it made! So it was a rude awakening when I went on submission and the book didn’t sell. That was a huge blow, and I floundered for a few months, trying to decide if I should revise that third manuscript or write something else. I came very close to quitting at that point. My agent suggested I write something related to my profession as a physician, and that’s where the idea for Imposter was born. That book went through several revisions until it eventually sold to Blackstone, who will also be publishing a revised version of that third manuscript. Although it was a long and winding road, I’m thrilled to be where I am now, and I appreciate all the lessons about perseverance that I learned along the way.


What are you working on now?


I’m soon going to be starting development edits for my second thriller, which is about a social media influencer who shares a picture of her new husband with her followers, and one of them recognizes him as the man who killed her sister and got away with it. I’m very excited about this book and looking forward to diving into it again.


Is anything in your book based on real-life experiences?


While Imposter is fictional, I did incorporate many of my experiences during my medical training and career, especially taking care of individuals with traumatic brain injuries. I wanted to accurately reflect a hospital environment and include many of the unsung heroes of the healthcare and rehabilitation world that don’t usually show up in books and TV shows about medicine—like physical therapists, occupational therapists, respiratory therapists, speech-language pathologists, social workers, and more.


Do you have a favorite character?


There are two main characters in Imposter, and I love them both: Lilian is a responsible, studious, somewhat anxious older sister who went to medical school and is outwardly successful. It was very easy for me to relate to her, and I loved bringing her to life. Rosie is the rebellious, spontaneous, stubborn younger sister, and she was more challenging for me to get to know, but I ended up loving her character and her voice.


What was some unique research you had to do for a book?


The story incorporates a rare neurologic disorder that can occur after brain injuries called Capgras Syndrome, in which the person affected believes that their closest loved ones have been replaced by identical-looking imposters. I’ve never seen this in a real-life patient, so I read case reports in medical journals, watched documentaries, and talked with colleagues across the country who work in my field. One of the most fascinating things I learned about Capgras Syndrome is that people affected with it can correctly identify their loved ones in pictures and photographs—it’s only in person that they think they are imposters. This is hypothesized to occur when the neurologic pathways that allow facial recognition are intact, but there is damage to the pathways that evoke an emotional response to seeing people who know and love. So the person recognizes the face of their husband or sister or mother, but because they don’t have an emotional response, they assume that someone must be impersonating their love ones. This can be terrifying for the person affected and emotionally devastated for their family and significant other, and in a few rare cases the delusion has unfortunately led to violence against the “imposters.” There is no cure, and although some people improve over time, many are affected for the rest of their lives.


Do you have any advice for aspiring writers?


If you want a writing career, start acting as if you already have one. Treat it like your occupation even if you’re not yet getting paid for it. You may not be able to write full-time, but you can set aside consistent time on a regular basis to work. Learn about the craft, join a critique group, and get outside feedback from beta readers. When your book is as good as you can make it with your current skill set, start submitting it to agents or publishers. And then, start writing the next book. Professional authors have to maintain this cycle for their entire career—write, revise, submit, start the next book—so you might as well get used to it! It’s also important to develop grit and resilience; this is not a path for the faint of heart. The more authors I meet, the more I realize that everyone faces setbacks and disappointments, so learning to come back after failure is a crucial skill.

THE WAYS WE HIDE, by author KRISTINA MCMORRIS (book debuts September 6th!)

From the New York Times bestselling author of Sold On A Monday—over a million copies sold!—comes a sweeping World War II tale of an illusionist whose recruitment by British intelligence sets her on a perilous, heartrending path.

As a little girl raised amid the hardships of Michigan’s Copper Country, Fenna Vos learned to focus on her own survival. That ability sustains her even now as the Second World War rages in faraway countries. Though she performs onstage as the assistant to an unruly escape artist, behind the curtain she’s the mastermind of their act. Ultimately, controlling her surroundings and eluding traps of every kind helps her keep a lingering trauma at bay.

Yet for all her planning, Fenna doesn’t foresee being called upon by British military intelligence. Tasked with designing escape aids to thwart the Germans, MI9 seeks those with specialized skills for a war nearing its breaking point. Fenna reluctantly joins the unconventional team as an inventor. But when a test of her loyalty draws her deep into the fray, she discovers no mission is more treacherous than escaping one’s past.

Inspired by stunning true accounts, The Ways We Hide is a gripping story of love and loss, the wars we fight—on the battlefields and within ourselves—and the courage found in unexpected places.

Reviews ~

"Just like her heroine, Kristina McMorris works magic in this twisting tale of James Bond's Q meets World War II. I love this book!" ― Kate Quinn, New York Times bestselling author of The Rose Code and The Diamond Eye

The Queen's Gambit meets The Alice Network in this epic, action-packed novel of family, loss, and one woman's journey to save all she holds dear―including freedom itself." ― Kristin Harmel, New York Times bestselling author of The Forest of Vanishing Stars

"A riveting tale of intrigue and illusion, danger and historical mystery, but at its heart the story of one woman's struggle to escape her own past. While using her remarkable skills to help captured soldiers, Fenna finds herself face-to-face with what she loves most and what she fears most, trapped in a place where each decision she makes could unlock the paths to freedom and a future... or death." ― 
Lisa Wingate #1 New York Times bestselling author of Before We Were Yours

Author interview with Kristina ~

Tell us a little about yourself and how you started writing.

I’m a native Oregonian and a mom of two teenage (going-on-forty) boys, the oldest of which I just sent off to college. (How on earth did that happen so fast?!) As for my start in writing…

About a dozen years ago, I sat down to interview my grandmother for the biographical section of a homemade cookbook I was creating, full of recipes she’d collected and created over decades, as a Christmas gift for the grandkids. When she shared her WWII courtship letters from my late grandfather, I left her house inspired by a sudden idea for a Cyrano de Bergerac-type story, the premise of which ultimately became my debut novel, Letters from Home.

 What are some things you enjoy when not writing?

That’s an easy one! Spending time with my kids and close friends, whether having dinner on the patio or playing a card game (if it’s team cribbage, watch out; my youngest and I will take you down!) or traveling or binging a show together—or yes, watching just movie trailers, because I could watch those for hours!

Finish this: “I can’t write without…”

…my big Yeti tumbler full of vanilla- or salted caramel tea, topped off with honey and sweet cream. Oh, and my laptop of course. No writing a novel by longhand for me.

If I had to spend a week on a deserted island, I would need…

 Aside from food, water, and shelter, the two things I regret not being diligent about until adulthood: sunblock and floss. As a kid, it was all about quick brushing and Hawaiian Tropic! 

What career did you think you’d have as an adult?

For a few years in grade school, I recall my standard answer being “a nun or a belly dancer.” Not because I was Catholic or knew how to belly dance; that would be too logical. I simply liked their outfits.

If I wasn’t an author, I might be…?

An event planner or a TV host, two of my former jobs that I loved. For more than the outfits.

What is something about you that would surprise people?

Since the pandemic began, and everyone was in the house all the time, my writing hours evolved to take advantage of the quiet wee hours and haven’t yet changed, so (insanely) I continue to often stay up until 3am. (And wake up by 9 or 10am, by the way, since I’m guessing that might be your next question.)


Do you have a ‘day job’ as well?


Yep. Full-time mom. And I love it.


Can you tell us about your challenges in getting your first book published?


Fifty-some agent rejections and I have the file folder to prove it. Ironically, many of those rejection letters expressed a belief that there simply wasn’t a market for WWII fiction. (You’re laughing now too, right?) So, my advice to other writers: Don’t let current trends dictate your stories; write what you love and what you’d want to read.


What are you working on now?


Mostly, I’m gearing up for two back-to-back book releases and tours (crazy, I know) in September and October, when I’m zipping back and forth among fifteen states. I’m planning to sleep for the month of November.


Is anything in your book based on real-life experiences?


So, so many—from the covert work of the British Intelligence section MI9 to several real-life tragedies that I happened across in my research and was stunned weren’t widely known.


Do you have a favorite chapter or scene?


Ooh, there are several close to my heart, but if I had to name one, it would be the epilogue, because it truly ties the novel’s many threads together and (yes, I’m a nerd for admitting this) has made me teary every time I’ve read it through as I edit.


Do you have a favorite character?


Okay, that’s like picking a favorite child, right? Gosh, I’m torn on this one…but because I wrote the story through Fenna’s eyes, I’d have to say her best friend Arie. He’s a goodie, in every way. And I can’t wait for readers to meet him too.


Do you have other books you’d like to talk about here?

I’m very excited about When We Had Wings, a collaborative novel I wrote with my dear friends Susan Meissner and Ariel Lawhon, set for release on October 18th. It’s an interwoven tale featuring a trio of nurses—from the US Army and the US Navy, and a Filipina—among those dubbed the “Angels of Bataan.” The three become fast friends while serving in Manila in 1942, just before the Imperial Japanese forces invade the Philippines and change the course of their relationships and lives forever.

What was some unique research you had to do for a book?


No question, my favorite research endeavor was when I flew on a B-17. That’s what I call a great day at work.


Favorite band or music? 


I have a wide range of favorite music, but to name a sample, I’d say tunes from the 1940s and 1950s.


Favorite book and/or movie?


Favorite book: The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

Favorite movie: A tie between Gladiator and Shawshank Redemption


Is there anything you’d like to say to your readers and fans?


Thank you, thank you for all your support, for allowing my stories into your hearts, and for sharing my books with others. I hope to see you all during my tour, whether in person or through a virtual event. (Just swing by my website for all the latest details.) And of course, I really hope you enjoy The Ways We Hide!
