Hi there Nitzan! Thanks so much for your very kind words - I'm so glad you enjoyed the book. And yes, what a cover!

The next novel is currently in the works, so it would be premature of me to say exactly when it'll be published just yet. It will also be a supernatural thriller, but in a different way to Sparks - and I'm afraid it's too early to say much more. But like a lot of my work, it will aim to make you feel afraid in your own home. Always a pleasure!

During the wait for Book Two, you might perhaps like to check out some of my previous short-form books, such as Beast In The Basement (novella), A Sincere Warning About The Entity In Your Home (novelette) or Auto Rewind (novelette) - all of which are on Amazon now! :)

I've no immediate plans for a sequel to Sparks, but who knows, there may well be more life in Jack in some other medium... *suspenseful music*

Thanks for these queries, sir!(less)

Thanks for asking this question - and for reading Sparks! I don't use any specifically-branded structure, but then again they're all based on much the same 'beginning, middle and end' principles. :) So while planning a story, I'm very much aware of the classic three-act structure, and pay special attention to the midpoint. As you may remember, Sparks is literally in two parts, and so is Ghoster, actually. So I end up with a four-act structure, with what amounts to a two-part second act, if that makes sense! Hope you have a good time with Ghoster, if you do check that one out. I consciously used more of a mystery thriller format for that one...(less)
