The Demi-Monde and The Jam Factory

Thanks for all your lovely comments about TORN. In all the madness surrounding ENTANGLED I keep forgetting that I have this other book coming out next year. Lots of people have been asking me if it's a sequel to ENTANGLED and I hope they're not too disappointed when I tell them it's not. I must admit though, these questions have got me thinking about the characters and what happens to them after the last page of ENTANGLED. But for now... I'm saying nothing.

Here's a book recommendation for you. It's a book for grown-ups! I haven't quite finished it yet, but I am loving it and I think the premise is mind-blowingly awesome. The description below is from Amazon. Click on the cover to take you there.


The Demi-Monde is the most advanced computer simulation ever devised. Created to prepare soldiers for the nightmarish reality of urban warfare, it is a virtual world locked in eternal civil war. Its thirty million digital inhabitants are ruled by duplicates of some of history's cruellest tyrants: Reinhard Heydrich, the architect of the Holocaust; Beria, Stalin's arch executioner; Torquemada, the pitiless Inquisitor General; Robespierre, the face of the Reign of Terror.

But something has gone badly wrong inside the Demi-Monde, and the US President's daughter has become trapped in this terrible world. It falls to eighteen-year-old Ella Thomas to rescue her, yet once Ella has entered the Demi-Monde she finds that everything is not as it seems, that its cyber-walls are struggling to contain the evil within and that the Real World is in more danger than anyone realises.


In other news, I'm moving into my new house (a.k.a. The Jam Factory) this week. I'm currently wavering between panic and excitement. So. Much. To. Do. But I'm going to have my own front door and a stripey rug in the hall and a couple of vegetable patches in the garden. That's what I have to focus on (rather than the chaotic lists of Things To Remember and Very Important Stuff).

I hope this week is treating you all kindly.


  1. Hope moving house to "The Jam Factory" goes well :)
