AUTHOR Jae De Wylde visited a Harborough bookshop for the launch of her second novel.

Jae, who used to work for Harborough-based Travelsphere as editor of its magazine, signed copies of her new novel ‘Sleeping People Lie’ during the launch at Waterstones last Thursday.

Guests at the launch enjoyed Bucks Fizz and Champagne as well as cupcakes made by local baker Helen Steel.

Jae said: “The branch is so wonderful and friendly and people here in Harborough are so welcoming and always happy to have a chat.”

Shelley Hill, manager of Waterstones, said: ‘The moment I met her, I knew that Jae was a Waterstones author. Our customers love meeting her and love her books - she is a pleasure to work with.”

Set in Paris and New York, the book takes a look at the sinister side of obsessive love.

It is Jae’s second novel, following the success of her debut ‘The Thinking Tank’, which spent over a month in the Top 100 Women’s Contemporary Fiction Bestsellers on Amazon.

The book is available now in both paperback and on Kindle.
