Be My Killer will be published at the end of April 2017, followed by a second in July, and a third in November. Commissioning Editor Natalie Butlin acquired WAL rights including audio.
I was so completely gripped from the first gruesome, twisted murder that I forgot to get off my train. I might not want to meet him on a dark night, but I’m absolutely delighted to be Richard’s editor. His ideas are incredible, of-the-moment, and never-ending. This is a slick, perfectly-paced thriller with a killer hook. Richard already has a strong following for his dark thrillers and I am excited about having the chance to grow that audience.
In an industry rapidly moving away from long-established practices it’s great to join a publishing house that is savvy, cutting edge and committed to maximizing new opportunities with a truckload of positive energy. Bookouture continue to assemble an impressive stable of exceptional authors and I feel very privileged to be joining them for what should be a very interesting time ahead.
