Announcement: The Rabbit

I'm delighted to finally be able to tell you guys that my new book, The Rabbit will be released on August 28th through Avery Hill Publishing.

Eleanor and her younger sister Kathy have run away from school, from home and from all of their troubles. They may also be running from reality itself, as they seem to have acquired a new friend in the form of a talking cartoon bunny rabbit called Craig. As Craig grows bigger and bigger, the girls soon discover exactly what kind of creature has joined them on their adventure. Running away is not as easy as it seems.

Rachael Smith's follow up to the acclaimed House Party is a surreal and affecting coming-of-age tale that captures the wonder and vulnerability of youth. Both funny and sinister, familiar yet fantastical, you won't soon forget The Rabbit.

I'll be having a launch party on August 28th at Travelling Man, Manchester, followed by a London launch party at Orbital Comics on September 11th. That's right, I'm having TWO launch parties! More on those nearer the time.

Folk at the Forbidden Planet blog are already getting excited about the book HERE.

For now, please enjoy these preview pages (click on them to make them bigger):

Much loves,
Rachael xxx
