Walker Undercover Reads & Long Reach Book Trailer
Last November I was lucky enough to be invited to attend Walker's blogger event where they told us all about their new Undercover Reads campaign and some of the exciting new books they will be releasing this year. You can read my event report here for more information about the titles we were given a sneak preview of & I have to say I'm really excited about all of them!
Today I had an email from Walker saying they have launched their new Undercover Reads website where they will be posting all of the latest information about the books and their authors. Every month a new title will be spotlighted and they have a really exciting range of different books - something for everyone no matter what your tastes are. If you want to be kept up to date about these fab books you really should head on over & check out the blog.
The first Undercover Reads title is Long Reach by Peter Cocks, this is Peter's debut solo novel but he also co-wrote the Triskellion Trilogy with Mark Billingham. Long Reach is the first book in a new YA crime thriller series set in the London East End and starring character Eddie Savage as he goes undercover with a London gang trying to discover how his brother died. We got to see a preview of the book trailer at the Walker event but I'm really excited to be able to share the finished version of the trailer with you now:
I absolutely love the trailer - it looks more like an advert for a new TV series than a book trailer don't you think? Long Reach was actually released in the UK on the 3rd of January so you should be able to find a copy in your local shops now. I'm actually just about to start reading my copy so I'll be posting my review in the next couple of weeks.
