It’s publication day for my debut novel, The Dead End! And you know what that means… Yes that’s right, I am a bagful of nervous excitement and excited nerves and I definitely feel the urge to curl up under my desk and pretend like it’s not happening and simultaneously run through the streets shouting, “I published a novel, I published a novel, I did it, I published a novel!”
Thank you very much to those who already pre-ordered The Dead End, I really appreciate your support. I hope it winds its way to your Kindle/tablet/e-reader/phone/computer successfully today and that you enjoy reading it!
And if you have no idea what The Dead End is or what it’s all about, you can read the first chapter for free right here.
Maddy Ward is almost pleased to find herself dead at 20 years old.
In the afterlife she’s reunited with her beloved late father and she thinks it might be time to wave goodbye to loneliness for good. But the road to happiness is never straightforward.
The afterlife thrives upon the dead’s happy memories of the living world, and with nothing but sadness to show for her life, Maddy is faced with a fate worse than death – her soul might cease to even exist.
And it’s not only her afterlife that’s at risk. Billions of souls, living and dead, are under threat of extinction, and Maddy might be the only one who can protect them. Does she have the strength to put things right, or will she let her fear and self-doubt turn the afterlife upside down?
Witty, imaginative, and wonderfully uplifting, The Dead End asks what it really means to live life to its fullest.
