A Wicked entry from the desk of Templar fiction

After a few days soaking up the bookish culture at the Edinburgh Book Festival we've returned to find summer is officially over, it's September and the starting gun for autumn and Christmas titles has sounded. One good thing about being back in the office after a nice break up North was returning to find some lovely sparkling and shiny new books waiting on our desk. Oh yes they look so pretty, we do love seeing the finished book all brand new and waiting to be read by new readers.

September marks the start of a busy two months for Templar fiction with some big new titles and debut authors coming over the autumn months. As many of you know the epic survival thriller POD by Stephen Wallenfels has been invading blogs and bookshops these last few weeks and now launches with an extremely cool new website. Check out and play our survival game to be in with a chance to win an iPad.

Two of the shiny new books we returned to find were Wickedness and Frogspell, (more to come in a later post on Frogspell antics). Both are outstanding debut novels from two new authors on the Templar fiction list and we're super excited about them both. 

Wickedness is a real genre-busting book, combining historical, paranormal, magic and romance. It tells the interconnected tales of two red-headed girls living 400 years apart, an ancient prophecy and a sinister and seductive stranger...It's gripping, magical, scary, romantic, heart-stopping all at the same time. Add to this beautifully crafted story-telling skills from author Deborah White and we reckon we've got a real new talent in teenage writing.

To celebrate the publication, Debbie has just embarked on virtual tour, so check her posts out at the following blogs. There are lots of exclusives, extracts and extras, personally I'm very much looking forward to 17th Century make-up and Day in the Life of an Egyptian teen!
