This massive eBook success has led to print deals with Sphere, and top five kindle bestsellers in the UK and Canada and top ten in the USA.
Associate Publisher Lydia Vassar-Smith said,
For a debut author to achieve the level of success that Patricia has in such a short time is just extraordinary. Her sales speak for themselves and reviews for her books are particularly impressive – readers can’t get enough of her writing and the extraordinary maverick Detective Lottie Parker. The one-million mark is such a significant milestone and I am incredibly proud of all that Patricia has achieved.
Patricia Gibney said,
On the 31st May, the 9th anniversary of my husband Aidan’s death, I heard that I had sold one million copies in the Lottie Parker series. I looked up at the clear blue sky and I knew he was smiling down at me. When Aidan died I entered a particularly dark period of my life. Suffering from grief and depression I found myself lost in a world I no longer recognised. However, with the support of our three children and through my writing I created a new world featuring Lottie Parker, and with a lot of determination, and even more tears, I have reached this point. Honestly, it is so surreal and I haven’t even had time to digest the significance of it all. My dream now is simply to keep on writing.
