New title is go


After a series of productive conversations and email exchanges, my editor and I find ourselves in a happy place having agreed on an appropriate title for the first Will Harris novel:

BLOOD WITNESS

The balance between finding a point of difference for this book while appealing to the expectations of an existing readership was a challenge but I'm very happy with the result.

Of course, this will result in a cascade of activity - from my updating the somewhat nebulous descriptions on this site to in house positioning meetings at Penguin to my agent updating their catalogues.

Personally, I find it quite the relief to no longer have to pause, slack jawed at the first question anyone asks when they learn that I've written a book — "What's it called?"

Now I have an answer.
