As mad as it may seem - what with all the publicity I've been busy with lately - I've finished and delivered the draft of Joe Hunter book 4 to my editor at Hodder and am gratified to say that with very few changes requested I'm almost good to go with this one.
Without giving too much of the story-line away, I think this is about the most action packed of the series to date and I hope everyone likes the finished result when they get round to reading it.
The most difficult part of the process with this one was in coming up with a title that fits the series. I've laboured long and hard on this one, and it's the first time I've ever written a book without a title in mind. But - as of today - Joe Hunter's fourth adventure will be known as CUT AND RUN.
To re-cap, for all of those who have been wondering, or need reminding, the series to date goes (or will go) as follows:
Book 1 - Dead Men's Dust (published in the UK and USA May 2009)
Book 2 - Judgement and Wrath (Coming to UK October 2009, Coming to USA May 2010)
Book 3 - Slash and Burn (Coming to UK May 2010, Coming to USA May 2011)
Book 4 - Cut and Run (Coming to UK October 2010)
Book 5 - Untitled (Coming to UK May 2011)
