Eric Red (Near Dark, The Hitcher, It Waits Below) on THE SKINTAKER

Thrilled to receive this glowing endorsement of my new Samhain Horror novel THE SKINTAKER from none other than Eric Red – screenwriter of the classic movies NEAR DARK and THE HITCHER, director of BAD MOON and 100 FEET, and author of IT WAITS BELOW and the forthcoming WHITE KNUCKLE.

“THE SKINTAKER is a grandly entertaining period horror adventure in the classical Kipling and Conrad tradition, supercharged with contemporary graphic horror and gore.  Likeable, believable 1900s young woman Rosie Shields is a fresh change-of-pace in female driven horror on her journey into the remote Amazon rain forests to confront a gruesome pagan nightmare beyond comprehension and her own unimaginable destiny.  Author Frazer Lee writes his entertaining, colorful tale at a propulsive clip, delivering cliffhanger action and blood-drenched splatter aplenty.  Populated with a fun ensemble of engaging characters, set against a dangerous jungle world thrillingly invoked in picturesque detail, and loaded with grisly scenes that will test the most cast-iron of stomachs, THE SKINTAKER has never a dull moment.  I thoroughly enjoyed it.”
—Eric Red, author of IT WAITS BELOW and WHITE KNUCKLE

I just signed the publishing contract for my new novella…

SamhainSoonThe ink is just drying on the contract for my new novella The Leper Window. I’m thrilled to announce that Samhain Publishing will release the book in 2015.

The Leper Window is the sequel to The Lucifer Glass and is the second in my Daniel Gates occult novella series. This time, poor Daniel faces weird evil in the wilds of Wales.

My editor Don D’Auria said he had fun reading the book, and I hope you will too!

On that note I’d better sign off as the final copy edits have also come in for my new novel The Skintakers, (prequel to The Lamplighters) also due for release via Samhain Horror in 2015.

If you haven’t read them yet, why not check out The Lamplighters and The Lucifer Glass ahead of publication of the sequels?

One last thing before I go, did I mention I’ll be appearing at World Horror Con 2015 in Atlanta USA? It’s set to be a great event, and is my first USA gig since Horrorfind Weekend 2006. I’m looking forward to meeting fellow horror authors and readers alike – and I might even have some copies of my books to sign at the Friday Mass Signing Event. See you there!

Cheers,
Frazer


Big audiobook dynamite news!

put some horror in yer headphones

put some horror in yer headphones!

Big news today – my publisher Samhain Horror signed a deal with Audio Realms who will produce audiobooks of The Lamplighters, The Lucifer Glass, The Jack in the Green, and the forthcoming The Skintakers for release in 2015.

Audio Realms has released horror audios by the likes of Brian Keene, Ramsey Campbell, H.P. Lovecraft, Bram Stoker and many more – so to say I’m thrilled about the deal is a bit of an understatement!

More details as I get them.

(Sadly, Vincent Price is not available for narration duties. I don’t get to choose who performs the reading, but if I could my shortlist would be Doug Bradley, Robert Englund or…Christopher Lee!)

 


New novel ‘The Jack in the Green’ out today in ebook & paperback!

The Jack in the Green‘ release day is upon us dear f(r)iends.

To celebrate the release of my new Samhain Horror novel I’ll be posting an extract over at the Samhain Cafe, giving away a paperback copy on Goodreads, and signing books at the British Fantasy Society open night book launch party in London.

I hope you’ll pick up the novel, and if you do I’d love to hear what you think of it on Twitter, Facebook, Goodreads, Amazon etc.

Meanwhile, here’s a tune to wish you all a green day before Jack puts out the light…

“An intriguing tale filled with genuine horror and a plot that explores some very dark territory…” Horror Novel Reviews


Everything’s gone green: using a mood board

I think visually, so when it comes to writing a new novel a mood board is an essential I can’t do without. Lucky for me there’s so much foliage around these parts, as when the time came to draft my new Samhain Horror novel ‘The Jack in the Green‘ (out in paperback and ebook, October 1st) I found inspiration during every stroll.

Some of the images made it straight into the text (readers of ‘The Jack in the Green’ will know the importance that trees joined at their roots have in the overall story), while others simply served to get me in the mood before writing. Like music (or in my case in addition to music) an evocative image can help fast-track you into your writing process. And, as was the case with many of the images included in the gallery below, I occasionally got lost inside of them.

I hope if you pick up my new book that you’ll enjoy getting lost in those forests too.

Just watch out for ‘The Jack in the Green’. “He’s in the trees…he’s waiting.”
