It has been so long since I’ve posted a blog here, rather than a VLOG, that I’ve almost forgotten how to do it!!!! I just wanted to let you guys know that the moment has finally arrived, The Fury is here!!!!! And it’s bigger than my head!!
It feels like I have been waiting for this book for so long. I’ve been nervous, too, because this is something a little different for me. I mean, it’s still fast paced, and gory, and has the same relentless action and pace and horror as the Escape From Furnace series, but it’s much bigger (681 pages), and the story is told from a number of different viewpoints. I’m not going to say much more, just that I put my heart and soul into this book, and I really, really hope you guys like it!
Oh, and I know some of you will be wondering – this is now the only edition of The Fury that will be for sale, both in the US and the UK. It contains BOTH BOOKS, and is one complete, stand-alone story. Sorry again to those of you who bought the original UK edition of The Fury, and who were looking forward to buying The Storm – it won’t happen now (except as an ebook), and I am really sorry. But the upside is that the original print run of that book was very small, and if I ever become truly famous then it might be worth a fortune! So hang onto it. (Every cloud has a silver lining, and all that!)
And I’d also like to say a HUGE thanks to everyone who helped shape this book, especially my awesome editor Wes Adams, without whom The Fury would be the size of a horse trailer and I would be going crazy in an asylum somewhere. Also HUGE thanks to Rebecca Lee, my editor here in the UK, who helped turn the original manuscript from a big lump of Fury into something much more elegant. Thanks so much, guys!!!! Also HUGE thanks to all the team from Farrar Straus Giroux and Macmillan, you guys are simply the best!!!!! And a HUGE thanks to my family, for going through this with me (especially you, Lyns!), and HUGE thanks to my agent, Sophie. And, most of all, a HUGE thanks to all you guys out there who have read the books and supported me, I love all of you, and could never have done this without you!! You all rock!
If any of you have any questions about The Fury, or about anything else, I’ll be on Reddit tonight, between 5-7pm EST, answering questions live as an AMA. I’d really love for you to join me if you’re around! You can leave questions at any time.
And really all that’s left to be said is another HUGE thank you for supporting me and my HUGE book, you guys seriously are the best! I really hope you enjoy it!
