LONDON IN THE DARK by Victoria Lynn // Anniversary Tour, Interivew, & Giveaway

HELLO, MY LOVELIES. Today, I'm thrilled to be taking part in Victoria Lynn's one-year anniversary tour for her debut novel, London in the Dark! We've got spotlights, an interview, and an exclusive giveaway (plus another giveaway, too!). IT'S ALL VERY EXCITING 😍😍😍 Without further ado, here's London in the Dark...



London, 1910

Budding Private Detective Cyril Arlington Hartwell has a conundrum. London is being ravaged by the largest run of thefts in recent history. His hunch that it is all tied together may put him and those he loves in more danger than he could have reckoned.

Olivia Larken Hartwell is just home from boarding school for the summer anticipating time with her adoring parents. She misses her absent brother, Cyril, hoping for the day he will finally come home. But tragedy strikes, causing upheaval for all concerned and changes her life in a way she never could have imagined.

Olivia, Cyril, and their friends must bring the hidden to light, seek to execute justice, and dispel the darkness that hovers over London… and their hearts.


Welcome, Victoria! I'm delighted to have you here! First off, would you mind introducing yourself and your novel?

Hi Liv! Thank you so much for having me! I am a writer with a passion for encouraging others. I love to blog at Ruffles & Grace and I love sharing about my life, tutorials, faith, fashion, etc.

How did the idea for London in the Dark first come about?

The first idea that prompted the story was what it would be like if someone like Sherlock Holmes had a sister. That was the main thing that got me thinking.

Did you have a favorite moment during London in the Dark's writing process?

Hmmm... good question... Probably the main climax scene was my favorite. The chapter called "Hostage." You'll have to read the book to find out what I am talking about. 😁

Without any / too many spoilers, how will the stakes be raised in Shadows in London?

Ooh... Very good question. *rubs hands together* There will definitely be a lot more action and let's just say that some people who are near and dear to each other will find themselves in dire straights. Add a confusing romance to the mix and things will be getting a bit crazy. 😉

What's your advice for Christian authors pursuing indie-publishing?

The biggest thing I can say is to make sure you do it right. Hire people in areas you don't find yourself comfortable with. The best thing I did was hire a professional editor for my books. Don't be afraid to take your time and do it right. The best thing you can do for your book is give it the most professional look and feel that you can. A cover speaks for the book as does the quality it is written and presented. Take your time and do the best you can.

Thank you so much for your time, Victoria! *hugs* And congratulations on London in the Dark's one-year anniversary! 💖

Thank you so much for having me Liv! It has been a pleasure. And thank you! I am so excited!
