Join the Ghost Train on a whistle-stop tour of some of the finest book blogs on the internet. Along the way, you'll learn all about Lucky Ghost, my conspiracy thriller for an age that prefers conspiracies to facts. You'll find out about my writing process, about the dangers of feeling too much online – and hear why reality kept catching up with me as I was writing the book.
