Thrilled to confirm that on the 13th of June (the 13th being an auspicious date for any horror writer) I signed the contract with Flame Tree Press for my new novel GREYFRIARS REFORMATORY. I started writing the book while I was travelling on business in China, and it looks likely to be released in 2020. More updates to follow!
“A chilling, atmospheric tale that creeps up on you like fog off a loch. Highly recommended.” (Jon Recluse)
“HEARTHSTONE COTTAGE is a nonstop riveting read and the suspense never slackens. Prepare to lose sleep.” (Fungi From Yuggoth)
“Well written and great suspense.” (Heather Bennett)
“I really enjoyed this book and the unique storyline.” (Rachel Drenning)
My thanks to all the reviewers!
I’m also excited to announce that I have signed with Crossroad Press to republish my out-of-print horror novels THE LAMPLIGHTERS (Bram Stoker Award® Finalist for Best First Novel), THE JACK IN THE GREEN and THE SKINTAKER. It feels good to be getting these evil offspring back into print! Crossroad Press did such a wonderful job publishing my DANIEL GATES ADVENTURES series of occult horror novellas.
I will post updates about cover art, release dates, and such, as and when I get them.
Until then, thanks (as ever) for reading,
The Infinite Bard is an exciting opportunity to read free stories (yes, free!) from some of your favourite (and soon to be favourite) authors working in genre fiction today.
All of the writers are members of The International Association of Media Tie-in Writers, and I’m delighted to be one of the Bards bringing you a new story to read every couple of weeks, starting on May 1st, 2019.
And what a wonderful start to the New Year.
News just in that ZedFest Film Festival & Screenplay Competition in Hollywood USA has awarded the Edgar Allan Poe Gothic Filmmaker of the year award to yours truly for my film The Stay.
To quote the great poet, “I was never really insane except upon occasions when my heart was touched.”
My thanks to Festival Directors Wendy Medrano & Ed Stephens, and to their sponsors iPitch.tv for this very great honour.
As previously posted, The Stay won big at ZedFest 2018, where it was awarded the Outstanding Directing, Outstanding Screen Story & Outstanding Acting Performance Awards.
To be able to add the Edgar Allan Poe Gothic Filmmaker Award to that list of accolades is a wonderful surprise indeed.
As ever, a huge thank you to the cast & crew of The Stay and to all of our supporters.
Here’s to a fun & creative year ahead.
It’s already off to a great start!
