We love book launches, I think you know that about us by now and when we heard about Sharon’s plan to hold one online, we couldn’t have been more interested. While we love a traditional book launch sometimes it is hard to make them all as we must get some work done too, you know?!

Sharon Thompson’s previous debut novel ‘The Abandoned’ was a bestseller on Amazon and in her latest novel, ‘The Healer’ she tackles the subject of healing.

The evening was a roaring success and from the comfort of our sofa we were able to chat to others and hear all about Sharon’s journey in her writing life and where the idea of ‘The Healer’ came from. Hosted by Samantha Kelly, Tweeting Goddess it was sure to get busy and before we knew it #The Healer was trending on Twitter. The power of online activity.

Sharon is no stranger to online activity as she co-founded the tweet-chat #WritersWise and runs a successful writers’ group, Indulgeinwriting.com. Sharon is a huge supporter of writers in Ireland and for anyone wanting to write they should get in touch with her.

The Healer is published by Bloodhound books and is a dark, family drama which brings readers back to 1940’s Ireland. Life isn’t easy for the protagonist Molly. She isn’t like the other children.

Life gets even harder for Molly and she loses faith in everything. She must make choices. But will she choose the right path or is she doomed to a life of misery? Will Molly survive in a world of violence and crime? Will The Healer ever be healed?
