Happy Friday the 13th!

Triskaidekaphobics look away…but Friday the 13th is a special date for many horror fans, especially those who like to wear hockey masks to summer camp!

On this auspicious day I’m celebrating the impending release of my new horror novel The Skintaker (out April 7th) with a discount sale on my debut novel The Lamplighters. Yes, you can read The Lamplighters for only $0.99 – grab your copy at Samhain HorrorAmazon.comAmazon.co.ukBarnes & NobleiTunes, and Kobo (offer ends March 15th).

A Bram Stoker Award® Finalist (for “Superior Achievement in a First Novel”), The Lamplighters introduces the dark and demonic ‘Skin Mechanic’, a character who was described by critics as “one of the darkest characters I have ever had the pleasure of reading about” (S. Siferd, Night Owl Reviews) and “destined to become one of the great monsters of modern horror” (Dave Brzeski, British Fantasy Society).

New release The Skintaker is a prequel to The Lamplighters and explores the mysterious (and terrifying) origins of the character.

So, if (like me) you’re a fan of the big guy clad in a greatcoat of human skin, do let me know by posting a review on Amazon or Goodreads – and who knows, the character may return in a third book…

Meantime, Happy Friday the 13th!

(Triskaidekaphobics, it’s safe to look again………………….tomorrow)

The Jack in the Green gets a 5-star review: “Implacable, gruesome, nature horror”

Thrilled to receive a 5-star review from Mallory Heart Reviews:

Gruesome horror of the classic bent–wrapped in millennia-old paganism, Nature “red in tooth and claw,” (as Wordsworth depicted)–unfolding characters, raw terror, mix into one exciting, adventurous tale.
