Two Months Until the First Edition (and other news!)

There are just two months to go now until the first edition of my debut novel, The Killer You Know, is out here in the UK. Lots has been happening, so here is a swift catch up.

Extremely exciting: The Killer You Know will also be coming out in the USA at the same time as the two UK editions on Hachette imprint Redhook (Orbit)!!! I'll post something more about that once the US cover is finalised.


In other news, I am now officially a published novelist!

The Polish edition of Killer was released on June 20th through Burda Media with the title, Nigdy S Nie Dowiesz, which translates as, You'll Never Know. Should you fancy this edition (it's really lovely), you can pick it up here.

It's quite an strange, wonderful, nervy time at the moment, as I have no idea what to expect come August 30th. I've been lucky enough to have had some absolutely lovely quotes from fellow writers and bloggers, which I'll post below, however the thought of it being available to so many people very soon is pretty mind blowing and scary. I'm trying to keep myself busy with edits on a brand new novel, although the temptation to keep checking my emails and social media for news is reaching crisis point at the moment.

One final bit of news, if you are a blogger, vlogger, writer, or just plain curious, you can get an early read of the book by requesting on Netgalley right now! Here is the link.

More to come soon. Thanks for all your support up to this point. Here are those lovely early comments I mentioned.

'An original and gripping thriller combined with an evocative coming of age story that will be achingly familiar to anyone who grew up in the countryside' LAURA MARSHALL, author of FRIEND REQUEST
'A gripping, compelling read with a brilliant premise and a wonderfully twisting storyline. An incredible debut' TM LOGAN, author of LIES
'A thrilling read and an exceptional debut novel' RACHEL EDWARDS, author of DARLING
'Compelling, creepy, and brilliantly executed, THE KILLER YOU KNOW is an original new voice in the thriller world' PHOEBE MORGAN, author of THE DOLL HOUSE
'Brilliantly atmospheric tale of toxic friendship, with a killer hook - what if one of your gang turned out to be a serial killer? Loved it' LIZ BARNSLEY, lizlovesbooks.com

'I think I may have already found a strong contender for my book of the year... has shades of Stranger Things and a wonderful homage to Stephen King's IT... I cannot recommend this highly enough' RACHEL BURTON, bestselling author of THE MANY COLOURS OF US.

'If you loved Stephen King's "Stand By Me" then this is definitely one for you. A wonderful mix of thriller and nostalgia' KATHERINE DEBONA, author of THE GIRL IN THE SHADOWS
