A look ahead: Avon’s 2020

We can’t believe another decade is about to begin, and what a year we have planned to kick it all off! From stunning debuts to exciting new releases from some of our brand authors – it’s going to be fantastic!

To give you a taste of what’s to come, here’s a few sneak peeks at what 2020 brings with it.

Following on from the success of Our Stop over the summer of 2019, in summer 2020 we’re releasing the next title from Laura Jane Williams. The Love Square is an unmissable romcom that will have you doubled over with laughter and weeping with joy. We can’t wait to introduce you to Penny Bridge…

Laura Jane Williams

Million-copy bestseller C.L. Taylor returns in April with her next big title: Strangers. Ursula, Gareth and Alice have never met before, but they must stick together or one of them will die. Three strangers, two secrets, one terrifying evening. This jaw-dropping novel is perhaps her most gripping yet…

Strangers coming soon

We also have some stunning debuts for 2020!

From the wonderfully witty story about two unlikely friends in The Neighbours by Nicola Gill, to the heart-breaking yet uplifting debut from Hannah Sunderland, Very Nearly Normal­.

The Neighbours

We have a romance that spreads from Liverpool to Dubai in Hayley Doyle’s debut Never Saw You Coming, and a terrifying yet unique crime thriller from Nell Pattison, The Silent House, which follows a British Sign Language interpreter involved in the murder case of a young girl from a deaf family.

All these titles are available to pre-order now and we will be shouting about them from the rooftops, so don’t miss out.

Some of our brilliant thriller writers are branching out in 2020 to write their very first standalones with Avon. We can’t share the details just yet, but you can be sure that these are books that will leave you utterly breathless. Keep an eye on our social channels for news soon!

If you’ve loved some of our recent competitions, such as the chance to win a trip to Venice, have an escape room experience or win a hamper of goodies from some amazing brands, then you’re going to want to watch our social media in 2020 as we have much more planned. We’ll feature the chance to win a spa trip, an exclusive and unique floating experience plus plenty of opportunities to receive some extra-special book parcels.

Make sure you’re signed up for our Avon newsletter as each month we run an exclusive competition for subscribers only!

That’s all we can say for now, but one thing we can promise is that 2020 is going to be a big year for Avon. We cannot wait!
