Yes, I’m still here and still alive. It’s been a couple of weeks so I thought I should update you and let you know what I’ve been up to (to prove I’ve actually been working). So here we go:
I’m 15,000 words into the second draft of this brand new novel. A spate of brutal murders occur in and around a small town. The bodies of the dead – savagely mutilated, defiled – are piling up with terrifying rapidity. There’s no apparent motive, and no obvious connection between the killings, but they all started when Scott Griffiths and his family arrived in town…
AUTUMN: THE HUMAN CONDITION
Is written and edited, and is currently being formatted before going to print. The cover art (which is spectacular – I’ve added a glimpse below) and full ordering details should be announced next week. This book has become a labour of love. It’s a fitting end to the AUTUMN series and I’m insanely proud of all 150,000+ words of it.
The UK hardcover being produced in conjunction with Gollancz has been delayed. Sincere apologies. I’ll provide a further update as soon as I know more.
The book’s finished, but we’re still discussing what to do with it. More news as soon as I have it.
We’ve a meeting arranged for next week to get ISOLATION moving towards the screen, and an update will follow in due course.
Watch this space for some cracking summer events in Coventry, Cardiff and Avilés, Spain which will be announced next week.
PREVIOUSLY UNANNOUNCED FREE ONLINE SERIALISED NOVEL…
…will be kicking off in early July. Again, more details coming very soon.
Have a good weekend!
