"This is science fiction at its most moving and exciting." The Guardian

How do you know you really exist?

When I was growing up, the only time you ever saw a trailer was when the Pearl & Dean theme boomed out across the cinema. From Raiders of the Lost Ark to Romancing the Stone, the trailers shown at the Princes Cinema in Eccles gave me a first glimpse of coming attractions that left me counting down the days until the actual films arrived on screen.

Times move on and now books have trailers too, so I’m hugely excited to be able to share the amazing trailer that Nosy Crow have created for my new novel, The Infinite Lives of Maisie Day, which you can watch above.

The Infinite Lives of Maisie Day will be published on the 5th April 2018 and you’ll be able to take a sneak peek at the opening chapters soon, but until then here’s a bit more about the book:

It’s Maisie’s birthday and she can’t wait to open her presents. She’s hoping for the things she needs to build her own nuclear reactor. But she wakes to an empty house and outside the front door is nothing but a terrifying, all-consuming blackness. Trapped in an ever-shifting reality, Maisie knows that she will have to use the laws of the universe and the love of her family to survive. And even that might not enough…

Huge thanks to Matt Saunders for the wonderful cover art he’s created for The Infinite Lives of Maisie Day, Tom Saunders for his amazing animation, and Tom Bonnick and the team at Nosy Crow for all their brilliant work on the trailer.
