ADAM NEVILL COVER REVEAL
02 July 2014
By Julie Crisp
We do love a good cover reveal. If you haven't read any of Adam Nevill's work before, you really should. Twice winner of the August Derleth award for best horror novel, and four times shortlisted (including this year for House of Small Shadows), Adam really is a master at the chiller thriller. Or as the Guardian dubbed him 'Britain's answer to Stephen King'.
He's garnered amazing reviews and has five books already published with us. Check out their cool-looking jackets.
You can find out more about the books' plots here. And just to let you know that for today, the ebook of Last Days is promoted at just 99p from specific retailers! So if you have never tried an Adam Nevill tale - dip on in. :-)
His next novel is called No One Gets Out Alive and we're publishing in October. It's a creepy and horrific tale about what happens when you have nowhere left to turn . . . there were nights I had to put the manuscript in the other room while I was editing. And shut the door. With a chair up against it!
It's a fantastic read...
Cash-strapped, working for temping agencies and living in shared accommodation, Stephanie Booth feels she can fall no further. So when she takes a new room at the right price, she believes her luck has finally turned. But 82 Edgehill Road is not what it appears to be.
It’s not only the eerie atmosphere of the vast, neglected house, or the disturbing attitude of her new landlord, Knacker McGuire, that makes her uneasy - it’s the whispers behind the fireplace, the scratching beneath floors, the footsteps in the dark, and the young women weeping in neighbouring rooms. When Knacker’s menacing cousin Fergal arrives, the danger exceeds her darkest imaginings.
But this is merely a beginning, a gateway to horrors beyond Stephanie’s worst nightmares. And in a house where no one listens to the screams, will she ever get out alive?
We wanted to stay with the series style for the new cover and make it suitably intriguing. I love it, I especially like the shape hovering over the woman's shoulder. . . .enough to send shivers down your spine. We hope! :-)
