Brunel Writers Series: Halloween Special #GreyfriarsReformatory #RobotsRoguesandRevenants

Join me on Wednesday October 28th from 3-4pm (GMT) for a special live online event presented by Brunel Writers Series in association with Hillingdon Literary Festival.

Creative Writing students from Brunel University London will read flash fiction from their horror/sci-fi-fantasy charity anthology Robots, Rogues & Revenants, and I will read from, and answer your questions about, my latest horror novel Greyfriars Reformatory.

Tickets are free, and you can book yours here.

Look forward to spooking you at the perfect paranormal primer for Halloween!

#GreyfriarsReformatory – haunting a blog near you!

The Greyfriars Reformatory blog tour is off to a whirlwind start comparable to the autumn weather here in blustery old Blighty, which saw branches flying and zoom calls crashing.

First up was the delightfully monickered Duckface Kim, who said, “This book was so vivid & so well written that I did find myself looking around a couple of times to make sure the Grey Girl wasn’t there” – check their full review here.

Then, Nightfall Mysteries made my book release day with this marvellous 5 star review of the book they’re calling, “A Fantastic #spookyread of this month!” I’m as giddy as a grey girl to read about how much they enjoyed the book!

And today, The Magic of Wor(l)ds kindly hosted me as part of the Fearless blog tour promotion — and let’s face it, you have to be feeling pretty fearless to read about The Grey Girl!

If you didn’t brave the haunted halls of Greyfriars Reformatory yet, you can pick up a copy in ebook, paperback or hardcover — if you dare!

The blog tour is scaring up a storm up until Samhain, so keep haunting the web for updates:

Thanks for reading!

Best wishes,

My sixth novel #GreyfriarsReformatory is unleashed today in hardcover, paperback and ebook. I can honestly say that Greyfriars Reformatory is my scariest story yet, and I hope you enjoy being spooked by #TheGreyGirl as much as I did when I was writing her.

Emily Drake is institutionalised at experimental facility Greyfriars Reformatory and finds that icy Principal Quick and cruel bully Saffy are the least of her problems when the terrifying apparition of the Grey Girl begins haunting the new inmates – to death. Is Emily’s acute dissociative disorder the one thing that can save her?

My thanks to editor Don D’Auria for always having my back, and to all at Flame Tree Press for supporting the book, and to Simon & Schuster for distributing Greyfriars Reformatory so that it may haunt homes far and wide.

And thanks to anyone who reads, and reviews, the book, I truly appreciate it.

By way of thanks, if you fancy trying your luck in today’s Greyfriars Reformatory giveaway, click here!

1st prize: a signed hardcover copy of Greyfriars Reformatory.

2nd prize: a signed paperback of Greyfriars Reformatory.

3rd prize: runner up gets a Greyfriars Reformatory ebook.

Giveaway ends at midnight tonight (GMT) & winners will be announced here, and on my social media tomorrow – so best be quick and get a haunt on!

Beast witches,

#TheStayMovie awarded #BestInternationalFilm at #thethinginthebasementhorrorfest

Amazing news!

My folk horror film The Stay has been awarded Best International Film at The Thing in the Basement Horror Fest, USA.

What an honour!

Many thanks to Tyler Darkow & all at the Fest for supporting our work, on behalf of the cast & crew of The Stay 🎃

Signed books & the mystery of the missing PayPal feature

It’s the first day of autumn, and spooky season is well and truly underway.

(I know, it’s Halloween every day for me too!)

I was looking forward to signing copies of my sixth novel Greyfriars Reformatory at a series of live reading events culminating in a mass séance that would see several audience members seeking spiritual/medical help.

After they’d stopped screaming.

But the pandemic put an end to all that fun. (Though having seen Host on Shudder, I do have a few ideas about how to proceed with the mass séance at least…)

Instead, I’m delighted to offer signed copies of my books by mail order
(and I promise to wash my hands thoroughly before inscribing them, and before packaging them for transit. It’s the only way to keep the blood off the pages.)

The details are up on my Store page if you’re looking for the perfect Halloween/Nightmare Before Christmas gift for your bestie, your bad self, or your mortal enemy.

There is a slight fly in the pumpkin spice-scented ointment though.

PayPal always used to feature a “special instructions to merchant” text box at check out, so you could specify (for example)
HEY FRAZER, PLEASE SIGN IT ‘TO FRANK N. STEIN, LOVE YOU OODLES’.

But PayPal apparently did away with this very useful feature — for reasons known only to itself! (And yes, I know you can add a text box to a PayPal button, but there’s no way to get it to work with a WordPress.com site.) Sigh. It was a useful thing and now it’s gone.

So if you do order a book, please DM me on Twitter, Insta, my Facebook Page
(or in the Comments section below)
with any specific dead-ication (see what I did there?) requests and I’ll get my pen ready.

(If I don’t hear from you first, i’ll haunt your email inbox to check before committing ink to paper.)

And PayPal — please reinstate that super useful “additional instructions to merchant” feature, or I cannot guarantee that the Grey Girl won’t get mad and come for you…

As ever, thanks for reading.

Take scare.

And see you on the other side.
