How many times can you lose the person you love?
Katherine and Matthew are destined to be born again and again, century after century. Each time, their presence changes history for the better, and each time, they fall hopelessly in love, only to be tragically separated.
Spanning the Crimean War, the Siege of Carlisle and the near-future of 2019 and 2039 they find themselves sacrificing their lives to save the world. But why do they keep coming back? What else must they achieve before they can be left to live and love in peace?
Maybe the next together will be different…
A powerful and epic debut novel for teenagers about time-travel, fate and the timelessness of first love. The Next Together is told through a mixture of regular prose, diary entries, letters, “original” historical documents, news reports and internet articles.
As of RIGHT NOW, my book has been released in the UK and Australia! I’ve already been sent pictures of it in real life bookshops, oh my god guys.
At Queen’s Park Books!
I started writing this book in 2010, when I was a young innocent of eighteen, and I can’t believe my story has come so far that I now have an actual book which I can hold in my hands, that people can read and love as much as I do. I even have incredibly cool things like animated covers, and fans! There are already gifsets! For a book that has been officially released for…..one minute!
I mean…..who ever thought this would be real life? I definitely didn’t.
I’m so grateful to everyone who has supported me on this journey. Your endless enthusiasm has made my jump into the world of publishing, which could have been terrifying, into an absolutely thrilling experience. I feel like the luckiest person in the world and I’m so proud to be part of such a loving community. The YA book world is a magical place.
I really, really hope you enjoy the book as much as I’ve enjoyed writing and publishing it. Here’s to many more books to come!
Before I get completely teary, I’m going to leave you with my final treat. It’s a good ‘un.
Happy Birthday to The Next Together! I hope that everyone loves you as much as I do.
