OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE:
Blackstone Publishing has announced they are to publish several titles by one of Australia’s rising stars and bestselling psychological suspense authors, Sara Foster.

Back in 2008, when I signed my very first book deal with Random House Australia, I was a few months pregnant with my first child. I flew to Sydney to sign the deal, and when I got back to Perth, my husband surprised me by hiring a limo and inviting some of our friends on a night out to celebrate. It was an exciting time, full of possibilities and new beginnings.
If you’re in Australia and New Zealand, copies of my new novel The Hidden Hours should be appearing in a bookstore near you over the coming week! And if you’re an international reader, then head to Amazon where you can preorder the title now, until it becomes available on Kindle on 3 April. I sincerely hope you enjoy my latest novel!
