As I look out of my office window at a web that spans the entire width of my garden—the product of an extremely ambitious spider—I wonder how I’ll ensnare you with this week’s newsletter. Because the truth is, there isn’t much to say on the surface of it. I don’t have a new book to promote, and the next one we’re putting out won’t be available for a couple of months yet.
But here’s what I can say…
I’m in the thick of it with the next Fletcher & Fletcher book, Dread Spectre (yes, that’s how we’re spelling it, sorry Yanks) and it’s coming along very nicely so far. I just polished off chapter seven and I really like the shape it’s taking. I won’t go into too much detail, but I’ll wet your whistle with these titbits (yes, that’s how we say “tidbits” over here, deal with it).
- Dread Spectre is going to take place during an unusually hot London summer.
- A rift between Jake and Frank will threaten the partnership of Fletcher & Fletcher.
- We’ll see the return of a certain short-fused homicide detective the surly proprietor of a magic shop, and a gender-fluid shapeshifter.
- To solve this new case, Jake will be forced to confront a smashed mirror version of himself.
So, did I do it? Did I trap you in my web? Are you hopelessly at my mercy?
If you are, be sure to pre-order your copy of Dread Spectre HERE.
And if I failed to capture you, perhaps I can sling some more silk your way by introducing you to the series as a whole. Check the link below for that…
Okay, enough of the tortured spider metaphors – time for you to check out the rest of the web. Hahhahha hahaha ha!
