Once again, I must apologise for the long delay since last posting here; May looks to have been a very slow and quiet month - but no indeed, far from it! May was a very busy month of audio work and if anything, June is even busier. There's so much I would like to be able to say here and now, but as regular readers will know, I'm obliged to remain silent on professional projects until details are made available by production companies or publishing houses. It's quite understandable; if a company is potentially spending significantly on advertising campaigns, they really don't want people like me 'jumping the gun'. There's some very exciting stuff in the pipeline, though I shall have to excercise a little restraint, curb my enthusiasm and hold fire until the appropriate time, before I can tell you all about it.
Sometimes of course, information becomes available way before any publicity campaigns are officially launched and details of M.W. Craven's latest novel, Black Summer, have been evident on the internet for some time. Publication in all formats is scheduled for 20th June, though I can now reveal details of the story, along with an audio trailer:
Black Summer by M.W. Craven:
After The Puppet Show, a new storm is coming....
He's currently serving a life sentence for the brutal murder of his daughter, Elizabeth. Her body was never found, and Keaton was convicted largely on the testimony of Detective Sergeant Washington Poe.
So when a young woman staggers into a remote police station with irrefutable evidence that she is Elizabeth Keaton, Poe finds himself on the wrong end of an investigation, one that could cost him much more than his career.
Helped by the only person he trusts, the brilliant but socially awkward Tilly Bradshaw, Poe races to answer the only question that matters: how can someone be both dead and alive at the same time?
And then Elizabeth goes missing again - and all paths of investigation lead back to Poe.
