Screen Shot 2016-03-21 at 10.20.06

The results of this year’s  Book Pipeline Competition, for writers with material suitable for Film/TV adaptation, have been announced and (insert fanfare here) I’m thrilled to announce that my novel The Lamplighters is a Finalist!

It’s a real thrill to have The Lamplighters make the selection from over 900 entries.

Congratulations to Grand Prize winner Zach Fortier with I Am Raymond Washington. It sounds like a fascinating book and I am looking forward to reading (and seeing!) it.

Here’s the complete list of Book Pipeline 2015 Finalists and Semifinalists. Congrats to all who were selected:

What does this exciting news mean for The Lamplighters?

Praise for ‘Panic Button’ – the novel:

“A chilling commentary on the modern phenomenon of social media…I highly recommend reading this book, after which you really should go and see the film as well” (Jim McLeod, Ginger Nuts of Horror)

“More than competes with anything the creators of the original Saw could dream up” (Hellnotes)

“Frazer Lee explores the real dangers of putting our lives online and, through his characters, shows the real-life consequences of cyber-bullying, privacy, identity theft and the dangers of hiding behind the internet” (Malysa Stratton Louk, Digital Journal)

This is an intelligent and propulsive book, pressing all the right buttons – panic or otherwise – as a standalone piece of fiction even if you’ve not seen the movie version” (Paul Mount, Starburst Magazine)

Praise for Panic Button: The Movie

“The best British horror in years” ☆☆☆☆ (Adam Stephen Kelly, Ain’t It Cool News)

“The Social Network of Shocks” ☆☆☆☆ (Alan Jones, Film4 Frightfest)

“This is British horror at its bloody best” ☆☆☆☆ (Sky Movies)

“Nail-bitingly terrifying” ☆☆☆☆☆ (Abertoir Film Festival)
