Publication day for a new novel is always exciting.
I remember the build up to publication of my first novel, The Ghost Hunters, like it was yesterday.
The countdown, signing off the proofs, getting pre-orders, sending out the excerpt, delivery of the first copies, raising awareness on twitter, rounds of interviews, the preview party, the series of launch events, and finally waiting nervously - very nervously - for the first reviews.
Thankfully, the novel became a bestseller. And in a few weeks, work begins at Pinewood Studios to turn it into a two hour movie for ITV; which could also lead to a returning series.
Amazingly, the publication of The Ghost Hunters was nearly two years ago. And now I'm preparing to do it all again! In just 40 days, my second novel The Watchers will hit the shelves of bookshops across the country; and already, television production companies are bidding for the rights.
With over 500 new books due to be published on Super Thursday, just two weeks after The Watchers lands, I need your support to make an impact and stand out in the crowd. So this time, we're attempting something BIGGER than before.
But I need your help to do it.
Can you lend me your facebook status, send a tweet or post on Tumblr - just one update, coordinated with hundreds of other people, to massively amplify the volume and make sure #TheWatchers launch trends across social media on 24th September 2015?
