It’s hard to believe the two year anniversary of The Book of Kindly Deaths being published has just passed. Since then I’ve written quite a lot and new works are on the way, including my brand new novel Krampus and the Thief of Christmas which is now available.
Yes, I’ve written a book about him. Krampus the dark Christmas spirit who punishes children that have misbehaved. Krampus, the scary dark being who comes calling on Krampus Night (or Krampusnacht). That’s the 5th December – just in case you’re concerned. And if you are worried, because you know you’ve been bad, and you hear a tap-tap-tapping on your door, I’d hide and hope for the best.
Because he knows when you’re not behaving…
But of course Eldritch Black readers are never bad, indeed they’re good beyond measure. So to reward your goodness & all round sparkliness, I’m including a preview of the novel below.
Now, grab the Christmas Spirit by the horns!
Dark Fairy Tales. Waking Legends. A Magical Battle for the Heart of Christmas.
Krampus Night is coming and even though Gabrielle Greene has only been staying in her Uncle’s strange alpine city a few weeks, she’s already earned the reputation of the worst girl who ever lived. She doesn’t know it yet, but she’s also leapt to the top of Krampus’s list.
Krampus, the sinister Winter King, the anti-Father Christmas who comes calling once a year seeking wicked children to haul back to his realm.
When Gabrielle’s younger brother goes missing, she sets out in search of him but soon finds herself hurtling into a shadowy otherworld. A place of terrible trolls, murky forests, coal-black mountains, Christmas charms and fearsome beasts.
Can Gabrielle save her brother from the fiendish Krampus? Will she become The Thief of Christmas?
The clock is ticking as Gabrielle discovers her decisions have created terrible consequences, consequences that must be faced if Christmas is to survive.
Krampus & The Thief of Christmas is a magical adventure of yuletide thrills, dark comedy and festive delights.
