The Girl in the Video Audiobook, narrated by RJ Bayley out now!

The Girl in the Video by Michael David Wilson, narrated by RJ Bayley

Friends, it has been two weeks since The Girl in the Video paperback and eBook landed and the initial response has been incredible. The Goodreads community have delivered 62 ratings for The Girl in the Video already and Instagram has been rainbow coloured thanks to all you Bookstagrammers and your wonderful photographs.

And now the audiobook version of The Girl in the Video is here, expertly narrated by RJ Bayley, and I couldn’t be happier. I previously worked with RJ Bayley for the audiobook version of Water For Drowning by Ray Cluley and he did such a good job I knew I wanted him to narrate The Girl in the Video. He has brought Freddie to life wonderfully. So much so, if you’ve already read and enjoyed The Girl in the Video I actually think you’ll get a lot out of re-experiencing it in audio format. Trust me, RJ Bayley is one of the best in the business.

The Girl in the Video is available on Audible right now and will be making its way to Apple and Amazon very soon.

Here’s what RJ has to say about the occasion: “My history with Michael goes back years to when I used to write for This Is Horror. He’s always put only the best quality horror content, so it was great to be able to adapt some of his fiction into audio. We’ve created something really satisfying.”

The Girl in the Video by Michael David Wilson

Today marks the release of my debut novella, The Girl in the Video. Ever since I was a kid I’ve dreamed of having my own book out and now it’s finally happened. And what a looker it is, too, thanks to the wonderful cover art from Pye Parr.

I’m so happy that it’s received so much support so quickly—seriously check out links to The Girl in the Video media coverage here. By all means, please keep checking back as I update the links.

My one ask: if you’ve read The Girl in the Video could you please leave a review on Amazon? 

I know a number of you have already left a review on Goodreads which is awesome, but I’d love for the book’s Amazon presence to be boosted with a number of reviews.

Now onto the LIVE THIS IS HORROR PODCAST party …

This is going down later today or tomorrow depending on your time zone. Conversation, readings, book giveaways, and an interactive chatroom with This Is Horror Podcast hosts, Michael David Wilson and Bob Pastorella.

Head over to for the full experience including the live chatroom. You can sign up for mixlr or you can login via Facebook. We recommend logging in ahead of time so you don’t miss any of the show.
