A great new giveaway begins today for US readers! Penguin Random House has copies of THOSE PEOPLE hot off the press - enter here (and do sign up for author news too!)...
I'm absolutely thrilled to report that OUR HOUSE has been optioned for TV by Red Planet Pictures, the makers of Death in Paradise and Dickensian! The brilliant BAFTA winner Simon Ashdown will adapt. Watch this space for more news.
I'm overjoyed to tell you that OUR HOUSE has been shortlisted for a British Book Award 2019 - Book of the Year in Crime & Thriller. I don't think I've had a book entered for an award before, let alone shortlisted, and I have to say I am LOVING the experience! A huge thank you to Simon & Schuster UK for propelling Bram and F's story to these dizzying heights!
It's my first time in Glasgow this weekend - I'll be appearing at the brilliant Aye Write festival, alongside Lisa Ballantyne. If you're local, I hope to meet you there! Meanwhile, check out the programme highlights...
US readers only: Berkley have a great giveaway starting today - you could win an early copy of THOSE PEOPLE plus a copy of OUR HOUSE. (For me, the pleasure is in seeing these two beauties side by side under the police tape...)
OK, I've yet to meet ANYONE who isn't a fan of spredges - sprayed edges - and following the lovely acid yellow ones for the OUR HOUSE, paperback, we are busy cooking up teal green ones for THOSE PEOPLE (I'm making it sound like we're in a Breaking Bad-style crystal meth lab here). Both are exclusive to Waterstones and you can now pre-order their special edition of THOSE PEOPLE!
I’m so excited to reveal the cover for the UK hardback of THOSE PEOPLE, out on June 27th. I love the echoes of OUR HOUSE and the promise of another dark, duplicitous mystery. Great work by designer Pip Watkins at Simon & Schuster UK!
Most exciting - we have our first sighting of THOSE PEOPLE advance copies/proofs in the wild and it's a Goodreads giveaway! (US readers only)
Great news for US readers - for a limited time, the OUR HOUSE ebook is just $1.99! Find it now on amazon.com and all other e-tailer sites!
Excitingly, OUR HOUSE has topped the UK Kindle chart - a truly surreal moment, given the hours I've spent over the years scrolling up and down, up and down, in a not-at-all obsessive manner. Thank you to the magnificent S&S Digital team and of course to all Kindlers who have bought and recommended the book - you have already made my year and it's only 17th January!
