The Duplicate – my short, dark, weird one

I wrote this book as a Young Adult novel and sent it out to a few teenagers. They said it was weird. That it messed with their heads. And that they loved it.


The Duplicate

I got nervous. I worried my twisted story might ruin teenagers’ lives.

I wondered about making it longer, for the adult market.

I wondered about de-weirding it and changing the ending.

I put it to one side. I didn’t want to change it.

Then Snubnose Press came along and I had a brainwave – I could just blame them!

I’m even going to blame them if my own kids go wrong.

It’s the one I love, this book. I love the length – 40,000 words. I love the weirdness. I love the dark ending.

Think very odd girl.

Think rude photos.

Think revenge.

Think cloning…

If you want Snubnose Press to mess with your head, buy THE DUPLICATE on here.
