Now then, it's been a few weeks since I first used the site to Blog something, so I thought I better have another go.
Firstly, and I hope of most interest I can reveal the cover and title for my Christmas/Winter ghost story. The Journal of Reginald Perigar.
The cover was designed by Michaela Margetts again and I think she's done a beautiful job. I think it captures exactly what I was hoping for.
Rather strangely, the title and the story were inspired by a very vivid dream by my wife. She actually woke me up in the middle of the night to tell me I had to write it all down!
I'm not saying much about it other than it's a traditional short story set in Victorian London. I haven't done an oldie for a while so I thought it was time.
I'm hoping to release the book in mid to late November so it can be read beside the fireplace on those chilly nights!
Have a look at the cover but don't go away, there's a little bit more news underneath.
I've withdrawn all of my books from Draft 2 Digital so I'm now an Amazon only man again. Things have changed since my last stint with them as my sole outlet so I'm excited to see what all these blue lines mean on my sales chart.
Oh and lastly, I'm hoping to have a new full length novel out close to the start of next year. But I'm saying nothing about that, not yet at least!
Well my blog page was completely blank so I thought I should remedy it. I'm not the most prolific blogger by any standards but I do try and maintain a blog here - The Macabre Collection.
Do I need two blogs?
No, probably not, but I need to check this one works and is easy to update before I commit to it.
On Thursday I released The Cage - my newest novel. It was a difficult book to write, not for technical or inspirational reasons but for physical reasons. An ongoing back problem with multiple surgeries has left me feeling... a little jaded shall we say. As a result I wrote significant parts of the book in bed. Certainly all of the subsequent drafts with the help of my editor - David Wailing were completed whilst on my back.
Anyway, here it is in all it's glory. You can buy it from Amazon at the moment and it is also going to be available through Kobo, Barnes and Noble in the very near future. If you go to the My Books page you can find a link to Amazon. But the links are also below.
I hope you enjoy.
