An exciting delivery: my copies of Out of the Shadows arrive, plus reviews in Kirkus, Booklist, Library Journal and BookPage

A big box of author copies of my book Out of the Shadows: Six Visionary Victorian Women in Search of a Public Voice arrived this week – a great thrill for me, of course.

Other things that have been making me happy since I last posted here are a series of early reviews in the following publications: Kirkus, which called Out of the Shadows ‘A well-researched, fresh contribution to women’s history’; Booklist, which said, ‘This well-researched book offers insight into a unique niche of women’s history, and would be a worthy addition to most libraries’; Library Journal, which called the book ‘Brisk and entertaining’, and, most recently BookPage – a starred review by Anna Spydell that made my day with the following conclusion. ‘By the book’s end, it no longer matters whether you believe these six remarkable spirit mediums were hoaxes or not; you’ll certainly believe in them.’

There is now less than a month to go until my book is released, on both sides of the Atlantic. Out of the Shadows will be published on 11 May, 2021. It’s available for preorder in the USA and Canada, and currently partially available for preorder in the UK. It will be fully available in the UK soon.
