World Horror Con 2015 Schedule

Hey F(r)iends, i’m looking forward to seeing some of you at the 25th Anniversary World Horror Convention & Bram Stoker Awards® Weekend in Atlanta, 7-10 May.

The programmers have put together a dazzling array of panels and events – I wish I could attend every single one.

(My schedule of panels, readings, screenings etc. is below.)

Please note, the Mass Signing Event is open to the public, so even if you’re not around for the whole convention do come along on the Friday for books and authors galore.

And my publisher, Samhain Horror, will be in the dealers’ room all weekend with a coffin load of scary books.

– it will be great to see you there!

Cheers,
Frazer

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!)

Long and Short Reviews: The Lucifer Glass

NEW Reviewed by LASR copyLong and Short Reviews gives The Lucifer Glass 4 stars and says:

The Lucifer Glass encouraged me to care about what happens to Daniel long before anything scary happens to him. I’d highly recommend this book to anyone who loves the subtleties of psychological horror but isn’t averse to a little gore.

The Lucifer Glass – unofficial soundtrack blog post #6 (of 6)

In celebration of The Lucifer Glass release day I’ve been posting a series of tunes* throughout the day that make up the ‘unofficial soundtrack’ for the novella.

So raise a glass with me one more time and turn the volume up to 13.

Track #6 – Our final track for today, and as we roll end credits I’d like to thank you for reading/listening/putting up with my multiple posts.

And thanks for all the tweets, messages, likes & comments, I appreciate it.

Bottoms up! Raise that glass, and raise it all to Hell!

whiskey gin and brandy
with a glass I’m pretty handy
I’m tryin’ to walk a straight line
on sour mash and cheap wine
so join me for a drink boys
we gonna make a big noise
so don’t worry ’bout tomorrow
take it today
forget about the cheque we’ll get hell to pay
have a drink on me

(Angus Young / Malcolm Young / Brian Johnson)

The Lucifer Glass – unofficial soundtrack blog post #5 (of 6)

It’s release day for The Lucifer Glass!

In celebration, I’m posting a series of tunes that make up the ‘unofficial soundtrack’ for the novella.

So raise a glass with me and turn the volume up to 13.

Cheers!

Track #5 – Sometimes a piece of music arrives that somehow sums up the whole book you’ve just written. The mood, the lyrics, the ambience, everything. This is that piece of music, the unofficial theme song for ‘The Lucifer Glass’, if you will.

“Take a look in the mirror Daniel Gates, and keep your hands on the wheel.”

The Lucifer Glass is published today. To read an excerpt, click here.
