Agent News!

Hello, lovelyface!

I'm absolutely thrilled to announce my new literary agent.  He's Oli Munson of AM Heath: the legendary mover and indeed shaker who represents the likes of Lauren Beukes, Sarah Lotz, Scott K Andrews, Stephanie Butland and Mari Hannah.  AM Heath was founded in 1919 and still represents the estate of the late, great George Orwell.  Christ on a crutch.

Oli is a tremendous, instantly likeable guy who shares my thoughts on contemporary horror and genre stuff.  He also knows what thrash metal is, which is always a bonus for me.

Furthermore, Lauren Beukes' The Shining Girls and Sarah Lotz's The Three really are the finest novels I've read in the last 12 months.  The Shining Girls (an often gruelling but utterly compulsive tale about a time-travelling serial killer, but you already knew that, I'm saying, because you're up on all the hot stuff) emerged via Harper Collins last August, while Hodder will release The Three (a brilliant faux-non-fiction affair which concerns the child survivors of four simultaneous 'plane crashes around the world) on May 22.  To share an agent with such authors is both awesome and slightly surreal.

I had lunch with Oli today - on World Book Day, no less - and plans are afoot.  Oh yes, make no mistake, there are plans.  Obviously, you'll get to read about them first, when the time comes, because you've always been my favourite.  You do know that, right?

Yeah y'do.

Want to feel afraid in your own home?  My 10,000-word short story A Sincere Warning About The Entity In Your Home can help.  Presented as a letter to YOU which is delivered to YOUR house, this grave warning from the previous resident tells you things you really don't want to hear.  A Sincere Warning... can be purchased as a 96p ebook or as a uniquely personalised physical letter which is mailed to your home address!  Full details at

My dark thriller novella Beast In The Basement is a twisted tale of obsession, revenge, censorship, blame culture and parental responsibility.  In a big house in the countryside, an increasingly unstable author toils over a new hotly-anticipated novel which will close the best-selling trilogy of Jade Nexus books.  A violent incident tips him into a downward spiral with horrific consequences.  Read it before someone spoilers you!  Beast is available for Kindle (which can be read on most devices) at Amazon UK, Amazon US and more.  More details here.

My Amazon-acclaimed non-fiction ebook How To Interview Doctor Who, Ozzy Osbourne And Everyone Else aims to tell you everything I learned about interviewing people, in my past life as a journalist.  It's available via Amazon UK, Amazon US and Amazon Germany, among others.  You can also buy it direct from me, in a Triple Pack of all three major file-types (PDF, ePub, Kindle), via PayPal.  Full details here, you splendid individual.

Hearty if belated congrats on having Oli as your agent. I've known him for several years, from his Blake Friedmann days. He's a top bloke and cracking agent.

Just don't mention Spurs.
