Well, the day is coming and it’s coming soon! Quicker than I thought too.
I have recently been given confirmation that my second book in the Paterson & Clocks crime thriller series is to be released on the 30th of this month. That’s just two days away!! I found out two days before I was due to travel away to my son’s wedding and have been unable to update anything – blog, Twitter, Facebook. I promised myself (and my wife) that I wouldn’t use any form of social media whilst I was away and that was something I wholeheartedly agreed to. But now I’m back.
So, the new book is called ‘The Lost Children’ and is a dark tale in many ways. I will be honest and say that I have no idea how this will be accepted overall but I do know that it will cause a knee-jerk response in many readers and that knee-jerk will undoubtedly be based on gut reaction and personal prejudices but not the story itself.
Although it is a crime thriller, the story at the heart of it is very real and based on true events, past and present. One advance reader has already written to me to let me know that it had them in tears and for that to happen in a crime thriller, well…I knew I’d told the story properly.
Anyhoo, don’t forget – it’s out on Thursday the 30th of August 2018
