Flying completely in the face of what I’ve said before, all six episodes will be exclusive to Kindle for at least the first 90 days. Don’t worry, though, you don’t need a Kindle to read it, as Amazon offers free apps for all Apple and Android products, as well as PC and Mac.
It has been a long journey bringing The Bug to life, but I was determined that 2016 was the year I’d finally make the time to do it. It has meant getting up before 6am every morning (and as early as 5am some mornings) to work on it, but it’s worth it to see characters who have existed solely inside my head for years now being plunged headlong into abject terror and misery.
I’m excited – and nervous – to see what readers think of it. If I could choose, I’d go for: Love it, Hate it, Completely Indifferent in that order, but only time will tell.
To try to spread the word about it, I’m running a Thunderclap, which is a bit like crowdfunding, but instead of giving money you pledge a single tweet, Facebook status, or Tumblr post. That’s it. A few seconds and a couple of clicks and you’ll not only be letting your friends know about a terrifying new horror serial, but you’ll be doing me a big favour, too.
In the time it took to read that last paragraph you could have done it, so just click the Join This Thunderclap button in the box on the right if you have a few seconds to help me out.
