Whether you're old or new readers, thanks for stopping by to check out what's new, and/or what you might have missed among my older titles.
I've decided I must be the world's worst website updater, since when I'm working at the 'real' job, I put everything else on the back burner and simply forget. So sincere apologies to anyone who's been kind enough to take the time and trouble to check in here over the last year, looking for something new.
My latest book, my sixth Sam Becket thriller, titled "ECLIPSE", has very recently been published in the UK in hardback by Severn House, and will be published in the US in January 2013. (No date yet for trade paperback, large print or Kindle editions – sorry! Perhaps if you nag the publishers, they might speed things up…)
If you think I'm slow with my website updates, I'm even worse about remembering to Tweet – mostly because I refuse to believe that anyone wants to know all the day-to-day stuff that goes on. Let's face it, the life of a thriller writer is pretty mundane, since apart from the happy times when you get to travel to research for the next book, much of the day is spent doing what you're supposed to be doing – namely making up stories, living in another world and, in my case, creating all kinds of mayhem for characters.
I've always got time to hear from you, though, and hope that you'll continue to read my books and tell me what you think of them. I'll always get back to you, and it really is a great feeling to connect with readers worldwide.
Oh, and before I forget, I'm excited to say that twelve of my backlist thrillers should be available in ebook next February, published by Orion's amazing Murder Room. More details when I have them…
'Black Hole', the serial killer who's been terrorizing Florida, and who earned that name by blowing out victims' eyes with a Colt pistol – has just landed on Detective Sam Becket's patch in Miami Beach.
As Sam immerses himself in another horrifying investigation, it seems an almost disturbing parallel when one of his favorite people has to face up to a personal dread of eye surgery.
Meantime, Grace has been out of town, where someone has a lens tightly focused on her...
But right now, back home, the body count is rising, and Sam has a brutal killer to catch.
ECLIPSE is out now in hardback in the UK published by Severn House, and will be out next January in the US. And the trade paperback edition of HELL is available on both sides of the Atlantic.
Also available for download now, Kindle editions of SHIMMER, CAGED and HELL. Many more titles available for download from German publishers Bastei Lübbe – and coming next year, more Hilary Norman ebook thrillers from Orion's Murder Room.
