October’s chill is well and truly upon us, and more chills are forthcoming with my new occult horror novella The Leper Window (released tomorrow, October 6th through Samhain Publishing).

Check out this rather stonking review from Russell James (author of Dark Vengeance and Q Island) over at Goodreads:

“Bram Stoker Award nominee Frazer Lee delivers again in this novella that expertly blends horror and mystery, relying more on suspense than gore to keep the reader engaged, as only a master of the craft can.” (5 out of 5 stars)

#TheSkintaker #Giveaway – and the winners are…

Skintaker-PBsml

Today is launch day for my fourth novel THE SKINTAKER, out now in ebook and paperback from Samhain Publishing.

As I always do on launch day I took some time out this morning to donate a copy of the new book to my local library. I’m lucky to have the place that inspired Roald Dahl when he wrote ‘Matilda‘ as my local book haven. And I feel honoured to have my books shelved there. I’m delighted to hear that two of my other books The Lamplighters and The Jack in the Green are out on loan!

Now, i’m also lucky that the post office is opposite the library, which made it easy for me to mail a signed copy out to the winner of my Goodreads Giveaway, who is (drum roll please…)

Amber L. of California, USA

Congrats Amber! I wish you good reads, and I sincerely hope the book gives you shivers.

A quick haircut and one cup of coffee later –

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)
