I’m absolutely thrilled with the response to The Dark Room, it’s hit the No 1 slot in Eason for THREE weeks in a row, and is an Irish Times TOP 10 bestseller! The blogger response has been amazing with a solid 4* and 5* rating from the blog tour organised by the incredible Anne Cater. Here’s just one review from Bookish Jottings:

A sinister, twisted and atmospheric thriller sure to send many a chill scuttling down your spine, Sam Blake’s The Dark Room is a nail-biting page-turner readers will not be able to put down….Thriller fans won’t be able to resist this ingenious thriller that is deftly crafted and beautifully plotted. Rich in atmosphere, intensity and suspense, Sam Blake’s The Dark Room is a gripping and tense chiller where the pages just turn themselves sure to go down a treat with fans of Lisa Jewell and C L Taylor.

Andrew Lynch got the scoop on my top 10 favourite tracks for the Business Post’s Rhythm Nation, which includes Katy Perry’s Firework (mindblowingly brilliant at the #BidenInauguration)
