First: My Demon is now published by PfoxChase Publishing. I’m thrilled to be among a group of very talented writers.
You can find the book listed here.
Second: Dan Holloway featured me on his blog: How long is a piece of rope? I found his questions very introspective, and wonderfully different to any other interview I’ve done.
Third: Coombe’s Wood featured on Daily Cheap Reads and had a lovely jump in sales. Thank you Daily Cheap Reads folk! I was on both the UK and US sites. The Ultimate Choice will be soon.
Fourth: I’m writing, but not Stolen. I’m writing something that seemed to come from nowhere, sort of hitting me sideways. It’s an incredibly sad story, and I can only hope if it every sees the light of day, others find it as moving as I do.
Fifth: What Alice Sees went onto the Best Sellers list on You Write On at the end of May. As a Best Seller, the opening of the novel will be automatically entered into the YWO Book of the Year Competition.
So far it’s been a busy month, plus some lovely reviews are coming in on My Demon. Check out the US and UK editions to see what readers are saying.
And here is a little teaser from the new book:
Nathan crouched down on chubby legs and stared at the dead cat.
"Kitty?” he asked, and pushed at the bush so he could shuffle closer to the corpse.
Flies buzzed around the body. The little boy ignored them and sat on the ground.
“Kitty, are you poorly?” Nathan patted the top of the head and stared intently at the cat’s eyes. They had a milky sheen. Dark green mucus leaked from its nose and mixed with the blood coming from its mouth.
The cat didn’t purr or meow like his nanny’s cat. It just lay there gathering flies. Bored of staring, the little
boy abandoned the corpse and skipped back up the garden, chasing a butterfly that fluttered nearby.
