Delivering a book for publication is a lot like delivering a baby. And, as a man of a certain age, I would now all about that, right? Well, I’ll have you know, part of my medical training involved delivering 20 odd souls into the world. Okay, it was a few years ago, and, after some over enthusiastic use of the ventouse on my part, some of those poor souls did look very odd indeed. All one or two of them needed was a bell to tie to their wispy hair and they could have passed for Noddy any day of the week (it flattens off — don’t worry!).
But I digress. Here, then, is my new baby. Thanks to all who’ve helped with the editing (Bryony) and cover design (Kit –it’s brilliant) and the new website (Laird). It’s now available for pre-order HERE and will enter the world kicking and screaming on the 27th July. Just click on the cover for a better view. What’s it about? Well…
Darren Trott has a job, a feisty girlfriend and a house with potential. Oh yes, he’s living the dream. Problem is, it isn’t the dream he applied for. You see, Darren likes taking photos of plastic models in real world settings. He calls it art. His girlfriend, Amanda, calls it a frivolous pursuit, amongst other things. She wants him to give it all up and turn his garage studio into a nail bar. Trouble is, his ‘art’ won’t let him. Every time Darren takes a picture, something very peculiar happens. Something amazing, and weird, and genuinely out of this world.
Psychopathic relatives, aboriginal demons, warrior queens, and a Brownie called George with red skin, claws and an attitude bigger than a banker’s wage, all want a piece of Darren. But they’ll have to get past Amanda first because she’s at the front of the queue.
DC Farmer cordially invites you to join him in exploring the next amazing case report from the Hipposync archives.
I’ll be announcing a giveaway later this week.
