The Digital Book Launch

Blue Door has been getting all technical with the digital launch of Meg Gardiner's fantastic new thriller, The Liar's Lullaby. The author widget allows readers to connect with Meg through video content whilst at the same time previewing sections of the text before buying. The Liar’s Lullaby widget comprises video clips of Meg introducing some of her favourite passages from the book which can also be read on-screen and recommended to friends. A new video and passage will be released every day for five days with the all content available from the end of June.

The Liar’s Lullaby is the second Jo Beckett novel published by Blue Door and features Tasia McFarland, a washed-up pop star desperate to reach the top of the charts. When a concert stunt goes badly wrong and Tasia falls to her death above thousands of adoring fans, Jo Beckett is called in to determine whether her death was accidental, suicide or murder. The plot thickens when it is discovered that Tasia was the ex-wife of the President of the United States and was the victim of an online hate campaign. A recording of Tasia’s song, “The Liar’s Lullaby,” will also be available on the widget. Already tipped by Stephen King as “the next suspense superstar,” we are predicting a bright future for Meg and the Jo Beckett series.

The Liar’s Lullaby is out now in trade paperback.
