Ghost Frequencies: it's coming for yooooooou

Spotted in the wild:

As you can see, up there on the top right is a glimpse of the paperback of my new short novel Ghost Frequencies picked up at Glasgow's Satellite Convention, most likely at a Newcon Press event.

I also spotted it listed on Amazon the other day with a release date of 19th June: you can see it listed at mybook.to/ghostfrequencies. Depending on where you are, it might say 'currently unavailable'. If it does, the yellow 'purchase' button should have a message telling you it can send you an email when it does become available. So if you'd like to pre-order it when it's available, click that button.

Once both the paperback and ebook are available either for purchase or pre-order, I'll post here to let you know.

But what's it about, Gary? Well, I'm glad you asked. Here's the back cover blurb:
Susan MacDonald is desperate. Unless she makes a breakthrough soon, Ashford, the millionaire businessman financing her project, will shut it down and disband her research team. She knows she’s close – that she’s on the verge of proving the existence of retrocausality, which will enable her to harness quantum mechanics to produce a revolutionary new form of instantaneous communication – but results are proving frustratingly elusive.
The last thing Susan needs is a team of ghost hunters moving into her base of operations, Ashford Hall – a building with a troubled past. Nor does she need the odd sounds – snatches of random conversation and even music – that are hampering her experiments; but does this interference represent the presence of ‘ghosts’ as some claim, deliberate sabotage as suggested by others, or is there an even more sinister explanation? 
The story to some extent focuses on Electronic Voice Phenomena, or essentially, tape recordings of what are supposedly ghosts speaking. Some of my older readers will perhaps remember an old Nigel Kneale teleplay from the early 70s called The Stone Tapes, and it was a definite influence.
