It’s the new year, which means lots of snowy white pages waiting to be filled with stories. Last year I published my new book Krampus and The Thief of Christmas. I’d always wanted to write a Christmas book because winter is an ideal time for eerie tales tempered with holiday cheer and who better than Krampus to embody eeriness. I also wrote and released the accompanying short story The Night of the Christmas Letter Getters, which you can find in the usual online bookstore, for the price of nothing at all. Not even a sliver of your soul.
Both stories are skewed more toward Middle Grade than Young Adult, which means it’s time to balance things out and take my writing back to the dark side.
Yin and Yang, night and day, happiness and…
This year I’m publishing a novel called The Horrors, which I first finished in 2013. It’s had a couple of iterations since then and now it’s time to bring it’s ghastliness kicking and screaming into the light.
I’ll post more about The Horrors soon, but you can expect it to creep from the shadows at some point in September, fingers and tails crossed.
I’m currently in the midst of planning another book, but I haven’t settled on which story to tell yet. There’s a collection of novels bubbling away in my cauldron of ideas, each one raising its papery hands and crying out to be written. I’ll cast the runes and see which way the cat scampers, and make my decision once The Horrors has been unleashed.
So here’s to 2017, a new year, new pages and brand new adventures.
I hope it treats you splendidly!
