Courtesy of Black Shuck Books, Great British Horror 5: Midsummer Eve is out now, available direct from the publisher. My offering appears alongside those from Simon Clark, Kelly White, Lisa Morton and others. Each novelette is called Midsummer Eve, but those of you that read the Crossroads In The Dark series might recognise the mythos I expand on.
Released on the 20th of this month by LVP Publications is my next novella, Downwind Alice. If you pre-ordered via the preferred link (originally Payhip) before 1st October 2020, you should get the free audiobook soon if not already received. If not, the novella is available for pre-order from the publisher (as well as Amazon and Barnes & Noble)
Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the StokerCon dates are tentatively 28th - 31st January 2021; this outing is rebranded as ChillerCon UK. The BFS FantasyCon for this year is cancelled. This year's Edge-Lit is also cancelled. But keep an eye on social media for virtual book launches and such, e.g. #BookTalk (on Twitter) and Pandemic Book Launches (on Facebook).
October sees all of the prep done for releases due later this year. New work is already scheduled to land as early as January 2021 and as far as October 2021. Currently knocking out the first draft of the new novel. That, and the next novella, should be enough for the rest of the year. 'Should' be ...in theory. Busy is as busy does.
