I'm so excited to share with you all the official(ish) blurb for my novella releasing this summer!
This novella is contemporary women's fiction--my first time writing contemporary in seven years, and my first time ever writing women's fiction. A preorder and cover reveal will come soon enough, but for now, I hope you enjoy this little sneak peek of The Odd Duck Society!
Jessamy Aubertine is too much for her university classmates, too little for her overstressed mum, and nothing in between. In an attempt to make herself useful, she takes on a spring holiday at her childhood home in Box Hill to sell the family's fading tea shop and somehow work out how best to tell her mum that she's switching study plans.
When mysterious letters signed by famous authors show up, can Jessamy and an unlikely pair of comrades find the writer behind the missives--and perhaps discover themselves as well? Or will their friendship fade with The Muses at the end of spring holiday?
The Odd Duck Society will appear in Springtime in Surrey, releasing from Wild Blue Wonder Press this summer. Stay tuned on my blog, newsletter, and Instagram (@racheljleitchauthor) to keep up on the Society's current adventures!
Hello there! Rachel again, with some of the short stories and flash fiction I've written. Enjoy!
