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: www.markcassell.co.uk/for-writers/ . 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 mark_cassell@beneath.co.uk and grab me personally).

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

Be safe, stay safe!

Gonna make it quick

"We mobilize, we synthesize, we are the future bloodline." - Future BloodlineScandroid

Two things.

The FIVE DOSES ebook is now permanently free on all your favourite channels. The book features one story from each of my favourite genres. Here are the all-important links:
In addition to that, here's one last thing:

If you'd like a starring role in a future book release then head to The Flash Fear Project where I'll write a story based on your personal fear.
That's all for now!

Flash Fear


What is your biggest fear, or worry, or something that chills you to the core? Especially if it's something no one else "understands."
The weirder, the better.
I will write something personal about it, and maybe I'll name the character after you (your choice). I'll take your FEAR to a higher level, and the story will be published in a future release.
All I ask is that you buy me a coffee.
Indeed, if you have more than one fear ... well, perhaps you think they're worth a number of coffees? I shall leave it up to you to decide their worth.
I've already got the cover art in motion, created by the horror author Kealan Patrick Burke. He's one of the good guys, so if you haven't already done so, go check out his books. He's talented. In creating covers, too! Damn that man and his skills.

I look forward to writing your FLASH FEAR.
My eternal gratitude to ALL you guys,

Please note: This is an ongoing project that will take us throughout the year, with a release date most likely for 2021.
