Look Out For … The Girl in the Video by Michael David Wilson

The Girl in the Video by Michael David Wilson HD - cover“With
The Girl in the Video, Michael David Wilson’s debut novella, he creates a surreal paranoid nightmare instantly relatable in our digital content-saturated world” 

A teacher receives a video from an unknown sender.

The video is a little weird, and strangely arousing.

And then there are more videos.

What do they want?

Descending into paranoia and obsession, he must find out who’s sending the videos before they destroy all that he loves.

Why we’re excited about this book:

Michael David Wilson is the founder of This Is Horror and host of the This Is Horror Podcast. Michael’s fiction and nonfiction has appeared in The NoSleep PodcastDark Moon DigestLitReactorHawk & Cleaver’s The Other Stories, and Scream. With The Girl in the Video, Michael’s debut novella, he creates a surreal paranoid nightmare, instantly relatable in our digital content-saturated world. Josh Malerman (Bird Box, Unbury Carol, and A House at the Bottom of a Lake) says: “Propulsive, modern, funny, frightening. The Girl in the Video will make you think twice about opening any anonymous videos sent your way. Then it’ll make you think twice again.”

Why Michael David Wilson’s excited about this book:

“After founding and running This Is Horror for almost a decade I finally have a book out and that makes me beyond excited. Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing and I are pitching The Girl in the Video as The Ring meets Fatal Attraction for the iPhone generation and that’s exactly what you’re going to get. If you’re into horror that’s heavy on the dialogue with a little humour thrown into the mix then this is for you. If you’re into techno horror then this is for you. If you’ve ever wondered what would happen if you were to click on that Bitly link then this is for you. And if you’ve ever wondered what the host and founder of This Is Horror’s fiction would look like then this is also for you.

Beyond everything else, I’m excited because the horror fiction community has been so overwhelmingly supportive. I might have some credentials when it comes to This Is Horror, short stories, and podcasting but in terms of long-form fiction this is my first foray. Nobody owes me anything. So, to get advanced quotes from three world-class masters of horror—Josh Malerman, Alan Baxter, and David Moody—was a dream come true. For the Bookstagram community to flood Instagram with beautifully curated photographs of The Girl in the Video was a dream come true. To receive so many positive reviews on YouTube, websites, GoodReads, and podcasts was a dream come true. And to have the opportunity to guest on so many of the world’s best horror fiction podcasts was a dream come true.
The horror fiction community is incredible. The horror fiction community has been so kind and generous and supportive. And for that I thank and I love you all.
Have a great great day and please … TELL ME WHAT YOU LIKE.”

Forthcoming from Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing, The Girl in the Video by Michael David Wilson releases 28 April 2020 and is available for pre-order now.
