Publishing Deal News - R S Pateman

Orion have stumped up 6 figures for a two-book deal with debut author R S Pateman:
THE SECOND LIFE OF AMY ARCHER is a dark, high-concept psychological thriller about Beth, a woman whose ten-year-old daughter Amy disappeared without a trace ten years ago. When a young woman turns up on her doorstep on the tenth anniversary of the disappearance claiming she knows what happened to Amy, Beth is introduced to a little girl who is the uncanny double of her missing daughter. But this can't be Amy, she hasn't aged a day... and yet she knows things that only Amy would remember; the name of her favourite toy, the place where she scratched her initials, what Beth likes for breakfast. Now Beth is forced to question everything she has ever believed in, and push her faith and her sanity to the limits, if she is to find out the truth about what happened to Amy.

THE SECOND LIFE OF AMY ARCHER will be published in June 2013 in hardback, trade paperback and ebook. International offering has already begun.
