The New Spider Shepherd Book - False Friends



I finished the first draft of the new Spider Shepherd book last week and Hodder have already come up with a cover. I think it's a cracker. There's still some work to be done but if all goes to plan it will be in the shops in July.

Excellent - love the Spider Shepherd books

Philip Coggan said...

Yes, it's a great cover.

Can I ask: How many titles a year can you write? Do you find they just "flow", like a switch clicks when you sit down?

Two a three a year. They don't exactly flow, but I don't have to force them!

Looking forward, as always to your next Spider book. I have just bought Nightmare and it is next on my "to read" list. Do you have a title for the next Nightingale book? Suppose to the cold weather is an incentive to have a nice glass of red in front of a warm fire and a waiting wp.

Stephen Leather said...

No title yet, Carolyn - just a vague idea for a plot!

Nick said...

Great news, any plot details you want to hint at?

I'm a big fan of the Spider Shepherd series. I'm looking forward to what happens next! Any chance him and Charlie will get a bit closer?

Stephen,
You might find this review from Amazon's biggest fraud quite amusing...

Hi Stephen - I've loved every single one of your books, especially the Dan Shepherd and Jack Nightingale series. I try not to read them too quickly in the hope that you have a new one to read before I'm finished! Always eagerly anticipating the next installment, keep up the good work!
