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.”
The 1st review of my new novel for Samhain Horror ‘The Jack in the Green’ is in – and it’s a goody!
Here’s a snippet:
I found myself completely wrapped up in this one, eager to reach conclusion and receive a few answers to my mounting questions. With a fine razor edge twist, Lee carries this story into a fully fleshed out novel.
Satisfaction is found within this read. So when all is said and done I am highly recommending this one. Be ready for what you really aren’t ready for. Whatever you do, do not read the ending first. Open this and enjoy.
Rating: 4 out of 5.
You can read the full review here, and pre-order the book (out October 1st 2013) here.
My thanks to Horror Novel Reviews for taking the time!
The postman came a-callin’ today with a big box o’ books, and I knew it was that George McFly ‘Back to the Future’ moment as I tore into it and saw the Samhain Horror logo peeking out from a gap in the cardboard. It’s an undeniably good feeling to hold your new book in your hands and sniff the pages. If it ever stops being so, it’s probably time to hang up the pen.
The October 1st 2013 release date for my new Samhain Horror novel The Jack in the Green is a long way off, but I can now reveal the synopsis for the book which is also available to pre-order through Amazon.com.
