The White Queen - Philippa Gregory

s&s logo

Philippa Gregory's new book THE WHITE QUEEN is published next week on Tuesday 18th August. This is the first of a brand new trilogy called THE COUSIN'S WAR, and everyone at the S&S offices is gearing up for next week's global launch of the title!

Today, we launch @elizwoodville, a twitter account where over the next 7 days will post a 'tweeted' version of the new book, from the point of view of Elizabeth Woodville, the main character in THE WHITE QUEEN. This is the first time that a major best selling author has used Twitter in such a way, and we're all extremely excited to see how it goes. The 'tweets' begin at 5pm GMT today - If you are on Twitter and see these tweets, please let us know what you think of them!

Also on Twitter we have, @whitequeen_book where you can get news about the international launch straight into your twitter feed!

If you would like to wet your tastebuds before the tweets begin tonight then check out our website for an excerpt of the White Queen HERE.

We've had some fantastic reviews for THE WHITE QUEEN over the last month, check out the S&S book review community booky_talk to see them.

Following both twitter accounts, and I can't wait to see how it plays out - and if the use of Twitter in this way will happen again and more often.
