Lisa says,

I am ecstatic. Writing more books for Bookouture and being able to see Vanishing Girls in stores next year is a dream come true. No one works harder for their authors than them, and being a part of the Bookouture family has been the most fantastic and rewarding experience of my writing career – I am thrilled to pieces to continue working with them. Every single day I sit down to write with excitement and joy knowing that I have such an amazing and supportive team behind me and such a lovely, brilliant editor who always brings out the best in my abilities. I feel truly blessed, and I am so grateful to Bookouture and Grand Central for these wonderful opportunities!

Jessie says,

This series just goes from strength to strength, with a mind-blowing 100% increase in pre-orders from book to book. I can’t wait to see where this new deal will take us. In Josie Quinn, Lisa has given readers a character they truly believe in and root for all the way; it’s no surprise to me that they keep coming back for more! Lisa is as hardworking and driven as they come and an absolute dream to work with.
