Another day, another signing. As part of our Fiction 2008 project, Tonto Books will publish Everything You Ever Wanted by Rosalind Wyllie. Ros was previously published in three Tonto short story anthologies, and this is her first novel. As a taster for the book, Ros says: 'Twenty years ago, when I was 17 I worked for a few months as a waitress and announcer for the acts in a Mayfair hostess club and that I have used that setting as the backdrop for the novel – part coming of age, part thriller.' The book will be published in August.
During the editing process, Ros will work with novelist Caroline Smailes. Caroline is the author of In Search of Adam, and also an editor and mentor. 'I am thrilled and it is an honour to be involved in a project that will promote and develop the voice of emerging writers from the North East,' says Caroline.
The Tonto Books Fiction 2008 Project is supported by The National Lottery through Arts Council England. As part of the project we are also running a New Novelist competition. See our previous post here.
