Doctor Who: The Shining Man is out today

It’s Doctor Who: The Shining Man publication day! Yes, my new adventure starring the Twelfth Doctor and his new companion, Bill Potts, hits the shops today.

I’m appearing tonight on Made in Bristol TV between 7pm and 8pm tonight to talk about the book, and I will be signing it along with fellow Doctor Who authors Mike Tucker and Jonathan Morris this Saturday at Forbidden Planet Bristol.

I’ll also be sending around a very special email newsletter later today to celebrate the launch in which top authors reveal the first Doctor Who book they read. It also includes a chance to win a signed copy of the novel.

Here’s the blurb:

“Being scared is the least of your worries.”

The Shining Men are everywhere. You spot them out of the corner of your eye. Abnormally tall, with long lank hair, blank faces and blazing eyes. If they catch you, they’ll drag you away to who knows where. No one is safe. They’re on every street corner. Waiting. Watching. Shining bright.

Of course it’s a hoax. It has to be, right? It started as a joke, a prank for Halloween. Then it went viral. Idiots dressing up as monsters. Giving folk a scare. Silly masks and fright wigs. No one gets hurt. Because bogeymen aren’t real.

Until people start going missing and lights burn in the darkness. Burning like eyes.

But help is on its way, in the form of a strange man called the Doctor and his friend, Bill. The Doctor will keep us safe. The Doctor will stop the monsters. Unless the monsters stop the Doctor first…

Doctor Who: The Shining Man is available in hardback from all good bookshops, including:

Of course, The Shining Man is not alone. Doctor Who: Diamond Dogs by Mike Tucker and Doctor Who: Plague City by Jonathan Morris are also published today.
