A very short note - for anyone who might be interested - regarding the new book for September. After a considerable back-and-forth we have concluded that we are sticking with the second title considered. Though it's working title was SACRED MONSTER (a reference made in the book that both my agent and I picked up on, and thenceforth it became a bit of an in-joke), the new book is going to print with the title:
A SIMPLE ACT OF VIOLENCE
I hope you like it...
