I was amazed to find yesterday that Invisible Fiends book 4 is already available to pre-order on Amazon, almost a full year before it is due to be published. There’s no cover or description for the book, just the title – Doc Mortis.
It’s way too early for me to be able to reveal much about the book, particularly as it’s still only at first draft stage! What I can say is that it’s far and away the scariest of the series (so far!), and Doc Mortis himself is a particularly disturbing character. Oh, what the hell, here’s a teen extract:
‘What will you do to me?’ I asked, biting the inside of my cheek to keep my voice from wavering.
Doc’s eyes shimmered as he peered at me over the top of his little round glasses. His answer came as a soft giggle of excitement that turned my stomach and made my flesh crawl. ‘Anything,’ he said. ‘Anything I want.’
Don’t say I’m not good to you. If you want to be one of the first people to read more of the story, click here to pre-order on Amazon.
Finally, just a quick heads up on a public event I’m doing soon. I’ll be at the Edinburgh Bookshop on Friday 8th October, and Saturday 9th October as their Writer in Residence. I’ll be there from 1pm to 5pm on Friday, and 11am to 5pm on Saturday, working on Invisible Fiends 5, chatting to anyone who says hello, and signing books.
You can also catch me in Madras College, St Andrews on the 25th of September, as part of the Fife Children’s Book Festival. More info on that can be found here.
