Midlothian author releases second novel

Sunday May 7th 2023


Written by Midlothian View Reporter, Luke Jackson

Local author Gavin de Bier has released the keenly anticipated follow up to his critically acclaimed first novel, Bobbing Heads.

Consider It Done is an unusual, gripping, fast paced thriller, and whilst linked to Bobbing Heads, it can be enjoyed without having read that book first.

Bobbing Heads was primarily set in London, whereas Consider it Done takes place in several locations, and we asked the writer, who works at Melville Golf Centre, if Midlothian features in it.

“It doesn’t, although the support I have had from Alastair McFarlane, the owner of Melville Golf Centre, my colleagues and the users along with the local community has been fantastic. I am now starting the follow up to Consider It Done and I will definitely feature Midlothian in it!”

It can sometimes be difficult for writers to produce a follow up to a successful first novel and we asked if this was the case with Consider It Done.

“No, as soon as I had finished Bobbing Heads and even before it was published, I had ideas for the next one as the characters give me energy and I didn’t want to lose any momentum.”

de Bier’s books have been compared to John Marrs, Erin Kelly, and T M Logan and we asked if he is happy with those comparisons.

“Of course! They are great writers and I am happy to be considered alongside them. Also, Waterstones compared Bobbing Heads to the Bourne Conspiracy and naturally I am happy to go along with that as well.”

Consider it Done can be purchased from Amazon HERE.
