It was based on Summer Falls, an in-universe book featured in the episode that was meant to be written by Amelia Williams.

Publisher's summary Edit
"When summer falls, the Lord of Winter will arise..."
In the seaside village of Watchcombe, young Kate is determined to make the most of her last week of summer holiday. But when she discovers a mysterious painting entitled The Lord of Winter in a charity shop, it leads her on an adventure she never could have planned. Kate soon realises the old seascape, painted long ago by an eccentric local artist, is actually a puzzle. And with the help of some bizarre new acquaintances — including a museum curator's magical cat, a miserable neighbour, and a lonely boy — she plans on solving it.
And then, one morning Kate wakes up to a world changed forever. For the Lord of Winter is coming — and Kate has a very important decision to make.

- Amazon UK and Amazon US market this as a story written by the fictional character Amelia Williams.
- The inside cover states it's a first edition printed in 1954. As such, the fact it is supposedly written by a woman from the future becomes evident with the use of phrases such as "cool" which were not in wide use in 1954, and also subtle references to technology such as digital cameras. It is obvious this woman is Amy. As you can see on the front of the book the writer is Amelia Williams. The book was published back to around the time she was sent back to, as well as the fact she became a publisher for the book the Doctor was reading in Angels Take Manhattan.
- Summer Falls was released in a printed edition in a collection that included The Angel's Kiss and Devil in the Smoke called Summer Falls and Other Stories.
- The Eleventh Doctor opined to himself that he could retire and become the curator of the secret art gallery in which was kept artwork considered too dangerous for the public eye. He was told "I really think you might", by "a humble curator". (TV: The Day of the Doctor)
