Twisted Fate Publishing Release a Revised and Extended Edition of Nick Stead’s Werewolf Novel ‘Hybrid’

It began July 2015. Nick Stead’s debut novel, Hybrid, was released under Wild Wolf Publishing – the first in his werewolf series. Books two and three came out in 2016 and 2017 respectively, and then he took a break from the series to work on other projects, and the beast went quiet. Now, an all-new breed of the series is being unleashed on the masses.

Twisted Fate Publishing, a new, independent UK publisher, is delighted to announce the publication of the revised and extended edition of Hybrid from Huddersfield author, Nick Stead.

This series is not for the faint hearted. Stead went down the Darren Shan route of naming the character after himself, and it tells the tale of his murderous, alter-ego, beginning with the night he was bitten and turned into a werewolf at the tender age of fifteen. From that moment on, he is gripped by bestial instincts and uncontrollable rage. And it’s not just at full moon. His inner wolf seeks to gain control whenever there’s easy prey to be had, or a fight with a rival. Strong emotions call it forth and Nick must learn to keep them in check if he wishes to keep from hurting the ones he loves.

But his carnivorous urges are not the only thing he must battle. A war rages in the shadows, and for the undead, time is running out.

The re-release of Hybrid is a much more polished version of the manuscript, which has been given hundreds of hours of editing time to lift the quality of the prose to more in line with what Stead produces now, five years after the original first edition. Many passages have been tightened, while others have been completely rewritten and fleshed out where necessary, to provide a much more enjoyable read of the story so many have come to know and love in the years since it was first published.

“The original version of Hybrid will always have a special place in my heart, but I’ve grown so much as a writer since then. My editing skills have really come on as well, so a move in publishers gave me the perfect excuse to revisit the series so far and really polish the rougher first editions into something I can be truly proud of. I’ve spent the entire lockdown working on these manuscripts and I’m really happy with the end result. It’s been intense but this new version of Hybrid is so much stronger for it.” – Nick Stead, author of the Hybrid series.

Hybrid is available on Amazon for both Kindle and Kindle Unlimited, as well as in paperback format. More information about the Hybrid series, the author, and his other works, can be found at nick-stead.co.uk.
