welcome to the dark side...

 I'm Teri Terry, and this is my website.

 

I write books - they might scare you. Some of my characters go to dark places and they don't always come back. If they do, they may never be the same again.

 

My books are thrillers - some futuristic, some current - with a keen eye on characters and what makes them tick, a good splash of weird science and occasional flights of fantasy.

 

 

Below you can click on each book cover to learn more, or read my blog.

 

You can find out about my virtual events here. My books are available at all good bookshops and online sellers - a list of some of the them with links is to the right. Signed and personalised books are available here.

 

Thank you for stopping by!

 

Dark Blue Rising: book trailer!

The Blog:

Look out Germany, here I come!

 

Well what I meant is not so much me, but my new book! Which is hard to fit in a title. Not sure when we'll all be travelling again, but in the meantime, we can travel by reading: pretty much risk-free, apart from the small possibility of paper cuts.

 

I'm sorry it's taken so long to get to you! Many reasons are likely involved - including me switching imprints in the UK, cancelled book fairs, covid (everything is blamed on covid these days, right?). But it will be with you, very soon.

 

I hope it was worth the wait.

 

Do you like the cover? I think it's gorgeous! And goes nicely with the UK edition, too. Once I have a copy in my hands I'll take a selfie with both.

 

Bye for now ... keep reading & stay safe.

Signed books: UK & Germany & a few other places! An Update

 

A rookie error: I miscalculated the posting costs, so have had to increase single book buys a little to £12 in the UK. You can still get them for £10 each if you buy two or more, since I can post them together.

 

And ... YES: you can now buy them from countries in Europe within the standard international small parcel zone. This includes: Germany, Mainland France, Denmark, the Netherlands, Republic of Ireland, and more!

 

Details can be found on the Signed Books page of my website.

 

If you're unsure if your country is included, if you leave me a comment there, I can check for you.

 

Thanks so much

Personalised & Signed books available now on my website

So many have asked if I could sell them a signed book that I've finally upgraded my website - the answer is now yes!

 

It's UK only at the moment, but if you'd love me to add another country let me know in the comments, below. If there is enough demand I may do so.

 

Books are £10 and this includes posting it to you in the UK.

 

And this is on my website, here.

Other Narratives ARE important: writing during a pandemic

Writing about a pandemic


 

Contagion was published in 2017 in the UK; last July in the US. Given the coronavirus pandemic I've been asked about this series quite a lot lately.

 

So why did I write it?

 

I've been thinking about this for a while, and it is hard to talk about it. Anything I can say now feels either like it has been coloured by recent events, or, if it hasn't, will sound that way.

 

Then this talk I did at the Hay festival in 2017 about exactly this came out from behind a paywall - part of opening up resources for people stuck at home.

 

So, this why I wrote it, why I thought it was important - and a bunch more, besides.

 

It's an external link to the Hay festival, here

 

Stay safe!
