The Secret City is OUT and International Contest



The Secret City is published today in the UK.

And in the US (ebook only for now).

Co-writing with an author in a different country has been an adventure from the start – one I will never forget. Carina and I called it The Book From Two Brains, when we first began. And later The Book of Four Hands.

But it’s become a series I’m truly proud of. About overcoming obstacles. Keeping your faith. Risking everyone. And surviving.

Always surviving.

I love our new monsters. And Sacha, Taylor and Louisa. And Oxford and Carcassonne. And Sacha’s motorcycle.

I hope you like it.

If you do, please leave a review on Amazon and Goodreads. It really makes a difference.

International release dates

The Secret City will release in France and Poland in October, and next year in Germany and more countries.

The Secret Fire is out now in Germany, France, Poland, the US and the UK. It comes out this September in Latin America, and will be released soon  in Turkey, Serbia, and other countries around the world.

Thank you so much for taking this journey with me.

I love you guys.

  1. Philosophically, ‘doorknobs’ occupy a special and high position within the general cascade of intellectualism along with ‘thresholds’ and ‘hinges’.So maybe the ‘dumb as a doorknob’ reference is a massive put-down by those who fear the heights scaled by that very humble of door furniture items – the doorknob.

  2. Hej Parisa,Tillykke med vægttabet – det er rigtig flot! I princippet mÃ¥ du ikke spise brød til morgenmad, men da denne kur stammer fra USA, hvor de ikke har rugbrød er det lidt en sandhed med modifikationer, sÃ¥ hvis du kan finde noget rugbrød med lidt sukker, lidt fedt og et højt fiberindhold, burde det være ok at spise. Du kan prøve dig frem og bliver du ved med at tabe dig, sÃ¥ er det ok med rugbrødet.Hilsen Sanne
