Arcbeatle Press are proud to announce the publication of The Minister of Chance, the debut novel from award-winning scriptwriter and playwright Dan Freeman.

“I know the formula for doors,” says the Minister, vanishing through the one he has just created in mid air. Teenage barmaid Kitty isn’t the sort to be dismissed easily, though. Armed only with her bad attitude, foul mouth and mysterious strength, she follows him through the glowing doorway, onto the frost bridge between worlds, and into adventure.

“I’m absolutely thrilled!” said Dan. “I’ve been writing this story in my head for over twenty years, and I’m delighted to have the opportunity to let the Minister out!”

“Publishing The Minister of Chance has been a dream come true,” said editor James Hornby. “We’re overjoyed to be able to give this talented writer a new avenue for his creativity at Arcbeatle Press.”

The Minister of Chance will be available in both print and ebook formats on 30th June.

The Minister first appeared in Doctor Who: Death Comes to Time, before appearing in his own audio series featuring Sylvester McCoy and Paul McGann.
