Reunions - Launch Week Day Three


I fail at reading calendars.

I've been telling everyone Reunions is out on Thursday 19th April, and it is out on the 19th of April, but that's...Wednesday.

Tomorrow!

Gulp.

In my defence, writing Hiding Behind The Couch does require rather creative use of calendars. To illustrate, here a screenshot of my timeline calendar, which I use to keep track of characters' birthdays, ages, anniversaries and so on:



Yes, OK, I know April 19th isn't a Thursday there, either, but my brain frazzes on numbers if I consciously think about what I'm doing.

So, anyway, the long and short of it is this:

- Season Seven of Hiding Behind The Couch -
 is out tomorrow!

(Oh, and did you spot that little sneaky title up there, next to 'Reunions' in the screenshot? That's Season Eight...coming when it gets here. ;) )

FOR FUN...
A quick-fire interview with Sean Tierney (caught on the hop between jobs)

Place of birth: Derry, The North of Ireland

Parents: My lovely mum, Saorla; dad...let's not talk about him.

Siblings: Older brother (by four years), Finn

Ethnic Background: Roman Catholic (minority in the North of Ireland)

Favourite subject at school: I really loved religious studies, actually (don't tell Joshy). I was taught by nuns, and there was a fair bit of religion in our curriculum. I always found it (and them) fascinating. I even thought about entering the priesthood for a time. It's not for me, though. Apart from the cups of tea and chatting with people. I could do that all day, which is why I chose the career I did, obviously.

Job: clinical psychologist (palliative care)

Married: No. I was. After the divorce, Sophie and I got together. That was five years ago, and we have a young son, so we're as good as married, I suppose.

Children: Just the one - Dylan Robert. He's a cracker.

Who do you most admire? Anyone who's happy with their lot, whatever that might be.

Relationship with God: I can't decide whether I believe in Him and wish I didn't, or I'd like to believe in Him but don't.

Overall outlook on life: I have my ups and downs like anyone, but I'm pretty cheerful most of the time.

Favourites:
Food: pizza - and my mum's cooking
Drink: tea
Books: any at all
Movies: action-packed, no thinking required
Sports: football (playing and spectating)
Colour: green, of course
best way to spend a weekend: long bath, lazy lunch, bit of telly, family time and football
pets: Sphinx - a Persian/Siamese cat with attitude

Do you have a secret? Wouldn't that be telling?

What do you like best about Josh? His charming way with words.

What do you like least about Josh? He always sees me coming.

BLURB:
When greed, fear and obsession rule the senses, danger is never more than a heartbeat away.

A night of celebration affords the perfect opportunity for an unlikely band of criminals to make their move, but as details emerge, it soon becomes clear the crime is far more sophisticated than the police first thought.

And that's only the beginning.
