Of Night and Light

Enter a world of night and light and of half light - the world of Caroline Coxon's debut novel.

Of Night and Light is written from the point of view of a fourteen year old girl - but don't be put off if you're no longer fourteen and you've never been a girl...

Rosa's mind works overtime. Maybe she's imagining all the strange goings-on around her, the shifting between legend and reality, truth and lies, this world and another...

Or maybe she's not imagining it at all, and annoying sister Alice really is in danger.

Judge for yourself. Read it!

What’s new!

- What’s new? Well, here’s an image of me, over the past few months – minus the high heels, because I never ever wear them. And minus the smart business suit – but that would leave me naked so forget that thought. Boy, it’s gritty down there with your head in the sand. I’m not going…

Maybe I’m amazed

- Maybe you’re amazed too? That it’s been such a long time since my last post on this site? Or amazed that I haven’t dropped off the edge of The World That Is Indubitably Flat? Because that’s what you thought must have happened. I’ve amazed myself, really. After working so hard on the promotion of Of…

- Last Friday night, it was, my inaugural book signing at Sussex Stationers and W.H.Smith in Uckfield. I have to admit that it was a scary thought – sitting at a table for three and a half hours with a pile of my books and trusting that people would be interested… In my crazy head, I…

Marketing the cheeky way

- With a newly published book out there and a marketing department of one – ME – the only way is bold and cheeky. Well, that’s not strictly true. There’s the feeble and constrained marketing, beset by fear of failure. I do that too. I’ve written the handbook. I wear the T-shirt. I drink out of…

Listen, do you want to know a secret?

- Listen? To a secret? Sorry, no Beatles here – that was just a way of piquing your interest. I’m sneaky like that. (Although, perhaps many of you won’t even know the song, released in, heaven help us, 1963, which is, gulp, fifty one years ago. Now I’m depressed). Anyway – HUGE fanfares from trumpet-playing angels,…

About

When Rosa is uprooted from civilised Notting Hill to her mum’s ramshackle family home in deepest Somerset, she hates everything about it.
