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.”

Which cocktail would you mix in Lucifer’s glass?

Post a cocktail recipe fit for the Devil himself over at my Facebook page (or in the Comments box below) and you could win Lucifer Glass goodies!

With the release of The Lucifer Glass, my new Samhain Horror novella, just a week away I thought it timely to have a fun contest – and it’s a great time to be drinking horror cocktails. Yesterday we celebrated the Peter Cushing Centenary and today marks Sir Christopher Lee’s 91st birthday, and the anniversary of Vincent Price’s birth. A horror icon triple whammy worthy of a toast…or three!

I once invented a cocktail called ‘The Frazizor’, but it was banned shortly afterwards as authorities deemed it “a risk to public health…and decency”. (Think ‘Pan Galactic Gargleblaster’ nailed to Old Scratch’s cloven hoof then rammed into your brainstem and you’re halfway there.)

But i know you can do better.

So get posting (or Commenting in the box below) your luciferous liquor libations, and make sure they’re 66.6% proof…

Cheers!

First Review: The Lucifer Glass

The first review of my Samhain Horror occult novella ‘The Lucifer Glass‘ is in, and it’s a beauty.

Here’s a snippet:

Confident, collected and entertaining, The Lucifer Glass is a page-turner, and it will be very interesting to see where we go from here. As the first entrant in a new series, it promises great things indeed, and lovers of occult horror should take the chance to support the series from the get-go.

Go, now, to Brutal As Hell where lovely and talented reviewer Keri O’Shea has yet more awesome things to say about the book.

My thanks to Keri and all at BAH.
