The heroine of my book, Dark Vision, is a pop writer on her local paper - as well as being a Goddess with the fate of humanity resting on her shoulders. At least part of that is relevant to me as well: I was also a pop writer, on the Liverpool Echo, for many gloriously hazy years (the 90s: they passed in a blur!). The story even opens at a gig in a fictitious Liverpool nightclub called the Coconut Shy. Music is a constant thread throughout the book, so I decided to draw up a Spotify playlist to share some of it with my readers. It's what you might call an 'eclectic mix' - listen and enjoy!

Well, it's less than a week to go until publication on March 27th, which is frankly terrifying! I'm pretty busy trying to promote it as much as possible, while also surviving the daily ritual of my 'paid' work; pouring numerous bowls of Coco Pops for the kids, and sneakily watching the Vampire Diaries even though I'm 30 years too old for it.
A couple of things to report - firstly, the lovely Laura Davis at the Liverpool Echo wrote this fantastic piece about the book: http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/whats-on/author-debbie-johnson-dark-vision-6852694 - and secondly, I'll be doing a signing at Pritchard's Books in Crosby, Merseyside, on Saturday March 29th between 12 and 1. I have been forcing all my friends/family/strangers from off the street to say they'll come along so I don't feel too lonely!
Thanks for reading!
