Happy Bookiversary To Me! 

My debut novel The Second Love Of My Life was first published here in the UK a year ago today! It was a dream come true to hold the book in my hands and see it on the book shelves. And it still is.

I still receive messages from readers who have enjoyed the book and that is always the most wonderful feeling. Getting published was a long journey for me, and for most writers, so knowing the book has found a place in someone’s heart just makes it all worthwhile.  

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who got a copy and supported the book’s release (and who are still supporting it and me!). Being a writer can be lonely sometimes and it’s easy to doubt yourself so knowing that someone has enjoyed your book is a huge boost and you guys have put a smile on my face so many times since publication.

Lots of love and hugs,




Cover Refresh

I’m so excited to share the refreshed cover for The Second Love Of My Life! The cover is so gorgeous and is now topped off with a wonderful recommendation from author Giovanna Fletcher.

There is just over a month to go until the official publication date of 7th April! 


You can pre-order already from Waterstones, WH Smith, Amazon, Kobo, iBooks, Book Depository and if you can’t wait the short story prequel The Summer I Met You is available to download right now.




The Summer I Met You release day!!


I’m so excited that today my eBook short story THE SUMMER I MET YOU is now available to download hurrah!! This story is a prequel to my forthcoming novel THE SECOND LOVE OF MY LIFE (Out April 7th) and follows two characters from the novel Emma and John and their summer romance.

The Summer 1

Can a summer romance last a lifetime?

The story introduces you to the fictional Cornish town of Talting and some of the characters you’ll meet in the novel but it is also a standalone story that hopefully you’ll enjoy in its own right!

As you read the story, you can also listen to the soundtrack I made. I love making playlists for books and I really love the playlist for this story – it makes me feel as if we’re bang in the middle of the summer despite the February chill.


I’m so excited to hear what people think of the story. There are already some fab early reviews:  



THE SUMMER I MET YOU can be downloaded for 99p from Amazon, iBooks and Kobo. I would love to hear what you thought of it if you have read it. You can leave a review on Amazon or Goodreads and please do tweet me your thoughts: @Vicky_Walters.

Thank you for all your support!
