I must admit I am squealing abit today when Stuart asked me if I wanted to do a cover reveal for his upcoming book Selfie. I literally snapped his proverbial hand off! I mean of course I do. I have been so excited about this book for ages, well since he told me wrote it and I read the first few chapters…..I mean I needed more!!

Anyhoo, so the blurb…

A girl’s selfie captures something sinister.

A weekend away which ends in tragedy.

A hotel that hides a terrifying secret.

Lucy Benson loves to play a game called selfie. All her friends play it. They send the best pictures to each other. While Lucy is sat in the back of her father’s Jeep, she holds the mobile phone to her face, pressing the click button.
As her father drives in the middle lane of the motorway, she captures the drivers of other cars. Only this time, she captures something terrifying.
Now, they’re running for their lives.

Sheesh kebab doesn’t this sound good. The cover is awesome, I’ve seen it…..oh wait! You are all about to too 😉

First, you can preorder this book on Amazon (Click the name) and it comes out 12th August!! Not long to go, cue more squealing.

Ok, on to the cover, are you ready fo this?

Not sure you are….


Until next time xxx

About Stuart James

I have always loved scary stories, especially ones that shocked me, left me terrified, looking under my bed or in the wardrobe before going to sleep.

There was just a fantastic buzz whenever I watched or read something that took my breathe away.

I remember going to my nan’s house in Ireland as a youngster with my mother and sister, on the West Coast, staying in a cottage, surrounded by miles of fields and my family sitting around the table in the kitchen at night telling ghost stories. Going out and exploring derelict farmhouses in the middle of nowhere. I remember clearly the field at the end of the road was supposed to be haunted by headless nuns. My cousins often remind me of the great times we had, frightening each other and running for our lives whenever we’d see something that didn’t look right.

This is why I love nothing more than to tell a story.

I started writing two years ago, penning The House On Rectory Lane.

I got the idea from something that has often seemed scary to me. I know that a terrifying story has to be something that you’re frightened of doing, something that makes the hairs stand on the back of your neck, something that fills you with dread, yet also with excitement.

To me, the thought of going to a house in the middle of nowhere, upping and leaving a busy town and moving to the country is something that scares lots of people and me: the seclusion, the
quiet, the darkness.

That’s what inspired me to write my first novel.

My second thriller is called Turn The Other Way.

I have multiple stories running, past and present. A family who want answers from the surgeon responsible for their daughter’s death. A young woman looking for her parents after they go missing from a party. A couple driving home and hearing screams for help from the back of the van in front of them. A serial killer on the loose in North London, dragging victims off the street.

I’m so grateful when people not only read my thrillers but also take the time to get in touch and leave a review. To me, that is the greatest feeling, hearing from people that have enjoyed my work. I know then that I’m doing something right.

I’m currently working on my new thriller, Apartment Six, which should be released later this year.

I’m 45, married and have two beautiful children. Currently, I’m a full-time plumber but would love nothing more than to make a living from my writing. I hope I write stories and people continue to enjoy them for years to come. That would be completely amazing and a dream come true.
