The Demon Inside is a YA apocalyptic sci-fi romance by M L Sparrow.
Who will survive?
Darcy was a perfectly normal teenage girl, enjoying the summer after completing her A Levels with her boyfriend Alec. Until the night strange creatures begin falling from the sky, infecting people and transforming them into crazed, animalistic cannibals.
Having lost everything in one foul swoop – her parents, her home and all future plans – all Darcy can do is try to protect the people she does have left. Together, she and Alec, along with her younger sister, sarcastic best-friend and Alec’s alcoholic father, set off on a journey to find somewhere safe in a world where everything is different.
However, when they do finally discover a haven, a place to call home again, along with a community of fellow surivors, can they remain? And who will survive?
A Word from the Author
The Demon Inside was the first book I ever published, though it wasn’t the first I wrote, and I’ll admit I was wholly unprepared and naïve about the kind of advertising I would need to do. Looking back, I’m not sure what I was thinking, but being so excited about finally publishing my book, I hadn’t even considered the need to advertise!
The last two years, since The Demon Inside was published, have been such a learning curve. I now know which paid-promotions are worthwhile and which are just a waste of my limited funds. I know that professional (often expensive!) covers are a great investment. And I know that the best form of advertising are reviews, reviews, reviews!
I’ve met some amazing authors and bloggers who have all helped and encouraged me and I’m happy that I’m now in the position to do the same for other self-published authors in need of a little advice.
