London Calling

We’re headed to London next week for the first London Author Fair, where we’re excited to talk with independent UK authors and publishers  about self-publishing, marketing and more.

Before we fly away, we’ll load up our NOOKs for the flight with some books by  NOOK Press authors that are set in London.

Good Night, Mr. Holmes

By Carole Nelson Douglas

When American aspiring opera singer Irene Adler rescues orphaned parson’s daughter Penelope Huxleigh from a London cutpurse, it starts a crime-solving alliance as strong as that of Holmes and Watson. Irene moonlights as a private inquiry agent while awaiting her career break, which brings her into the orbits of such luminaries as Oscar Wilde and Bram Stoker and puts her on the trail on Marie Antoinette’s fabulous lost diamond belt.


London Macabre

By Steven Savile

Nathaniel Seth is one of the Brethren, a shadow society of occult dabblers and black magickers who hide away in the darkest parts of the city. Little did Seth know that his own life was only hours from ending, his flesh to be taken as host for a daemonic entity clawed all the way out of hell’s pit in the centre of the hollow earth. Now things are afoot. Strange things.


London Falling

By Emma Carr

American Aimee Kennedy doesn’t think she needs anyone … until she’s stranded in London with no money and no airline ticket. Then she applies to be a housekeeper for sexy banker, Simon Ruleford. Unfortunately for Simon, fate conspires to trap Aimee in his home, while mutual blackmail and a lovable Scottie puppy keep them together. As they fight their growing attraction, Aimee’s money-making plans soon force Simon into one compromising position after another.

Off the King’s Road: Lost and Found in London

By Phyllis Raphael

In 1968, Phyllis Raphael landed in London as the restless wife of a Hollywood movie producer. With their three young children in tow from L.A., she was prepared for a London vacation on MGM’s dime while her husband was on the set. Instead – in a maneuver Raphael wasn’t expecting – he left her for an 18-year-old actress. And in a decision she never could have predicted, Raphael stayed in London with her kids. Off the King’s Road is Raphael’s courageous and funny story of being an expatriate let loose in the turbulence of Swinging London in the 1960s.
