[This book was gifted by Harper 360 – Released 21st January 2020]
Not So Pure and Simple is a book that i was really excited about being released in 2020. I’ve had a proof copy for a couple of months and finally got around to reading it before its release, i read it, i absolutely loved it.
In light of recent events and news articles (the specifics are not something i’m going to be going in to in this post), i wanted to talk a little about about the separation between an author and their books. If we should have that divide, if it’s morally right or if anyone even wants to.
*The book discussed in this post was gifted by Hot Key Books*
A few years ago, you may remember that we did a lot of work with Stripes Publishing centred around A Change Is Gonna Come, an incredible anthology with new voices and established authors. Myself and Sophie absolutely fell in love with Yasmin’s story in A Change Is Gonna Come, so when her debut novel got picked up by Hot Key, i couldn’t have been happier.
