It's here. Finally. Solomon Creed 2. Otherwise known as The Boy Who Saw. In shops. On the internet. In your earphones if that's what tickles your fancy. It's EVERYWHERE!! (except the US and Canada and various foreign territories - you'll have to wait a tiny bit longer for it I'm afraid, but not too long...)

Publishing day is always a strange mix of excitement, anxiety and anti-climax. The excitement comes from the fact that something that's been in my head for over a year is suddenly public property. The anxiety part is a deep seated sense that no one will buy it and those few that do will absolutely hate it. The anti-climax comes from the fact that there's been such a big build up to this moment, all the work, the various drafts, the revisions, the search for a title, the perfecting of the cover, the sending it out to newspapers for review and other authors to see if they like it enough to say something nice about it - all of that now crystalises in a point of publishing singularity and....nothing really happens. I take the kids to school and the dog for a walk as usual. The sky is still the same colour. The world turns. Bad stuff happens. Nice stuff too. The only tiny difference in my world is that my book is now on the shelves.

So if you fancy seeing for yourself what all that work resulted in, then click here. Or to order a signed copy go to the page for The Boy Who Saw on my webiste and click on the 'signed books' button. Or you could go old school and pop down to your local bookshop yourself, for there it will surely be.

I hope you like it. I really do.
