Monsters & Edgar Allan Poe

Signing contracts and signing chapbooks.

Hey, how you doing? I hope life is becoming a little more normal for you. Whatever "normal" actually means these days ...
If you're interested in a signed copy of the Monster Double Feature chapbook, they're up for the tiny sum of £5 including postage (or £8.50 overseas). Get your name on the steadily-growing list, and a copy will land through your letterbox shortly after its release. Of course, a quick thanks to those who have so far pre-ordered the ebook!

To grab either version, head to
Another couple of books I'm excited about are two upcoming anthologies. First up, there's The Best of Indie Horror featuring my fast-paced grisly tale "On Set with North." And then there's The Many Deaths of Edgar Allan Poe which contains "The Space Between Spaces," a story that was fun to write given its olde worlde approach. It's a weird one where I've stretched the facts regarding Poe's untimely death (he was 40 years old), and the cause of which, as you may or may not be aware, remains a mystery to this day.

One last thing I need to trumpet about ... I'm humbled to share the Table of Contents in both anthologies with a couple of my literary heroes: Shaun Hutson and Tim Lebbon. Tell this kind of thing to me five years ago and I would never have believed you.

That's about all from me today.

As always, thanks for your time. And stay safe!

A Double Feature

#1 in the Chap Book range from Herbs House


Remember last week I mentioned something exciting approached? Here's a duo of abominations, Monster Double Feature, the first in a range of chap books:
A British traveller desperate to escape his past finds himself at the heart of a Vietnamese legend, and learns why the Mekong Delta is known as “River of Nine Tails.” And a regular parcel collection from a neighbour becomes a descent into terror through the online game, “Reanimation Channel.”
This chap book is up for pre-order on Amazon in ebook format, while the physical copy is currently at the proofing stage. So you'll soon have the chance to get your mitts on a signed copy.

The all-important links:


Thanks for your attention as always. And take care of yourself!

Outside and Scribbling

It's kind of a quickie.

I've exciting news about upcoming releases, as well as short stories featured in anthologies and magazines (alongside some big names), but I'll leave those details to a later email.

Remember that notebook I made for myself and decided to share with the writing community? The Not Just a Notebook has proved incredibly popular and so I've now created another four different cover designs: . These are already proving to be a seller! Thanks to my fellow writers who've nabbed a copy.

And to my readers, you guys who're always there, next time you'll find out what the Hell I've been up to these past 13 weeks while my day job rusts on the driveway.

Be safe, people!

Answers on a postcard

"Is that you there or just another demon that I meet?" - The House Jack Built, Metallica

Lockdown conversations.

Eight weeks into lockdown here in the UK, and conversations with my wife have turned to nostalgia. You know, when things were simpler and the world wasn't crippled by a pandemic. In truth we've always talked bollocks, but the other day I mentioned watching kid's TV back in the 80s and 90s. Particularly when the presenter asked for viewers to write in, and said something like, "Answers on a postcard and send to..."
Now it's all about social media and apps, and emails like this one.
So, how are you doing in this crazy world? All good, I hope. Would you like to share any conversations or revelations in particular? Have you anything weird happen to you in these equally-weird times?

Speaking of the weird.

As a result of all this weirdness, it seems absolutely no conventions will happen this year. With that in mind, if you're after any of my paperbacks or flash drives loaded with eBooks, then shout. There's no "shop" link, so just reply to this email (or use and grab me personally).

One final thing, please know that all my eBooks are STILL up for 99c / 99p so head over to and take your pick!

Be safe, stay safe!
