As you can probably imagine, Halloween marks my busiest season. October is the month I traditionally rise, sweep the last of the sun from my lair and prepare to unleash my dark fantastical tales on the world. I write a lot over the summer, forced as I am to retreat to a heavily curtained room with the sound of rain playing to ease my sun-addled mind.
This year has been a busy one. I’ve finished a novel, have nearly completed another short Steampunkesque novel, and am starting a new book in the next few weeks. In between I’ve revamped several of my book covers and I’ve also written two short stories. Both tales are based around The Book of Kindly Deaths. One has been shelved because it felt like it deserved to be a full length book, the other, One Dark Hallow’s Eve, is coming very, very soon.

There will also be another new cover coming over the next few days. This one for that darkest of lost tales from The Book of Kindly Deaths, One Dark Hallow’s Eve. So ask your spidery familiars to return to this site next week to discover more, or wait for a tap-tap-tap on the window…
