I’m thrilled to tell you that Secret Pyramid has been chosen for Amazon’s February promotion and that – for this month only – is priced at just 99p for the ebook. And it’s been really amazing to see it climbing the charts. It’s currently Number 1 in ‘Mysteries and Detectives’ and is rubbing shoulders with the likes of Anthony Horowitz, Robert Muchamore, James Patterson and Andy McNab in ‘Crime and Thrillers’.
So grab yourself a real bargain and lose yourself in the dark heart of Egypt…
I’m delighted to announce the launch of my first children’s ebook. Secret Pyramid is an action adventure for girls 10-plus – think Anthony Horowitz’s ‘Alex Rider’ only with a heroine as well as a hero and a touch more romance!
When a man is shot on the steps of the British Museum holding an ancient Egyptian relic, 15-year old Sasha Fine and new friend, Johnny Marlborough, are propelled into an adventure that will take them to the dark heart of Egypt.
Arriving in Luxor, they discover the ancient treasures from the tomb of cursed king Sethmosis have been stolen by a pair of pharaoh impersonators, “Ramesses” and “Nefertari” Striker. Sasha and Johnny are determined to return the gold and jewels to the people of Egypt. But then they run into Dr Anubis – the mad plastic surgeon who vows to turn them into mummies before nightfall…
I had so much fun writing this book and I really hope you enjoy reading it.
So, tell your kids, tell the world and watch out for the evil Dr Anubis …
Secret Pyramid is available to download now.
One of the events I look forward to each year is the Oxford Literary Festival and, this year, I went to hear Anthony Horowitz talking about his books and TV career at the Sheldonian Theatre. I’m a huge fan of his Alex Rider novels and have heard him speak before. He’s one of the most entertaining and open speakers I’ve ever heard and he always makes time to meet all his fans afterwards, signing books late into the night.
