You all know my journey of trying and trying and trying to get a publishing deal for twelve years, then self-publishing TAUNTING THE DEAD and finally, last June announcing that I had a two book deal with Thomas & Mercer, Amazon Publishing? Well, finally, I can spill the news that

I have another two book deal.

And I am SO excited about this one, because I’m making TAUNTING THE DEAD the first book in a series featuring Detective Sergeant Allie Shenton.

Even though I left  TAUNTING THE DEAD with a bit of  a cliffhanger, I always intended it to be a standalone. But originally I had an idea for a further two books. For the last couple of months of 2013 and the first few months of 2014, I wrote another book and I got to know Allie Shenton again.

That book, FOLLOW THE LEADER, will be published in January 2015, and the next one, ONLY THE BRAVE will be published next summer, 2015 also.

I am absolutely delighted to be working with Amazon Publishing and my team again. A huge thanks also to my agent Madeleine Milburn. Oh, and I’m sure there might be a mention of a certain Terry Ryder in those two books. I wonder what Allie will think about that…
