After an energy sapping ten-day mark up, the second of the two books now needs to be my prime focus and I'll continue to work on it until it too goes into the studio next Tuesday. One of the trickier aspects of this book, is that it's the third in a series and has a number of recurring characters, going back to 2017, when they were first recorded. I have some voice samples to refer to and indeed, the full recordings, which I'm now listening to in an attempt to remind myself of how I voiced the original characters. As I have some time and the bulk of prep is already done, I also have the luxury of being able to simply re-read the text and familiarise myself with the actual story!
Full details of these books will become available nearer publication; as ever, I'm limited in what I can say about them until details are released by the publisher. However, what I can talk about, is the release later this week, of Neon, the first book from new author, G.S. Locke. Here's some info:
Detective Matt Jackson has reached the end. His beloved wife, Polly, is the latest victim of 'NEON' - a serial killer who displays his victims in snaking neon lights - and he can't go on without her.
Unable to take his life, Jackson hires a hitwoman to finish the job. But on the night of his own murder, he makes a breakthrough in the case, and at the last minute his hitwoman, Iris, is offered an irresistible alternative: help Jackson find and kill NEON in return for the detective's entire estate.
What follows is a game of cat and mouse between detective, hitwoman and serial killer. And when Jackson discovers it's not a coincidence that all their paths have crossed, he begins to question who the real target has been all along....
Written by G.S. Locke & Produced by Javier Cruz
Length: 9 hours - 4 minutes
