It's alive!

It is publication day for Mister Creecher here in the UK.  It is that strange time of the year when I will be promoting one book while editing another and writing a third.  Actually I am promoting two books, in effect, as it is also the publication day for the paperback of The Dead of Winter.  But more about all that later.  For now I just want to take a moment to enjoy the release of my new book and to wish it well.


  1. Soooooo excited to give this a read - my copy arrived early from Amazon on Saturday but I'm right in the middle of a book club book at the moment so I can't read Mister Creecher until Wed at the earliest!

    Are you planning on doing any in-store signings/events, Mr Priestley?

    My blog (where I've reviewed four of your novels, so far):

  2. Hurray! Can't wait to read it! :)

  3. I'll check out the review - thanks! And I'll keep you posted about any signings etc that come up. I'm doing a public event at Bournemouth this weekend.

    And thanks Petra - hope you enjoy it!

  4. Chris Hello sir, my name is Luke and I met his books here in Brazil the only book you have published in Portuguese here is the''Tales of Uncle Montague terror. "I got for Christmas, and found it very entertaining. Little I once seen on his blog that there is gold books you terror in the same style. I am fascinated to read them:)
    Unfortunately there is no translation for my language: (

  5. It's a great read and very enjoyable. I liked the way you left us all in limbo at the end!

    Nice one Chris!

  6. Hi Luke. We've chatted already on Facebook. There is a Portuguese edition due at point in the future - not sure when. The deal has only just come through. Also Rocco did originally take all three Tales of terror books, so I'll try and find out what happened there

    And thanks for the review. That's great. Thanks for drawing my attention to it.

  7. Hi Chris,

    Thoroughly enjoyed Mister Creecher and the story within a story idea. Now have Frankenstein on order from the local library, after all these years of watching film adaptations, your work has convinced me it's time to give the book a go.

    Best wishes,

  8. Then my work is done. . .

    I honestly think that is the best way round. Ordinarily I think movie adaptations harm the enjoyment of a novel, but the movies are SO different that reading the novel is a constant surprise. Or at least that's what I found when I read it.
