Killing Me Softly – Leisl Leighton

Congratulations to Leisl Leighton, fellow writing group buddy and friend, on the launch of her debut novel Killing Me Softly published by Penguin Destiny.

On Saturday, I was thrilled to join Leisl in celebrating the launch of her first book – one I know will be the first of many.

Leisl is a prolific and dedicated writer of both romance and paranormal suspense and extremely talented storyteller. We, in our writing group, always knew it was only matter of time before she was published.

LIz Corbett launching Leisl Leighton's Killing Me SoftlyFellow writing buddy, and beautiful writer, Liz Corbett (left) launched the book and told the story of how Killing Me Softly came to publication. (In the end, it was a chance enquiry by Penguin to see what else Leisl had in her bottom drawer, so to speak.) You can read about Leisl?s inspiring writing journey in Liz?s launch speech on her blog Hannercymraes and also pick up a terrific tip on Leisl?s own website that proved a defining moment in her writing and, along with her persistence, helped lead to her publication.

Check out Leisl?s website and get to know this new author that we?ll be seeing a whole lot more of in the future.

    Hi Tina
    It’s a small world! Yep, Leisl and I are writing buddies. And our group has been going for about three years now.
    Isn’t Leisl’s book cover just gorgeous?
    Best, Chris
