67262628_938550436504948_5323593142845308928_n

My new novel The Irresistible Summons is officially launched on the 27th of July (even thought paperbacks are already available).

My publisher, Dragon Soul Press, have arranged a Facebook Release Party on the 27th at 5pm UK time to 9pm UK time (12pm to 4pm East Coast time). Just click here at the appropriate time on the 27th to join in the fun, games, giveaways, and so on.

I will be hosting between 8:00pm and 8:30pm UK time (3:00pm – 3:30pm East Coast time), but there will be other authors present co-hosting as well, which I will announce in due course. One confirmed author co-hosting is the excellent Galina Trefil. If you haven’t checked out her short stories in the First Love and Sea of Secrets anthologies, I highly recommend doing so.

Pre-order your Kindle download of The Irresistible Summons or get a paperback copy here (in the UK) or here (in the US).

Spectre of Springwell Forest – out now!

It’s finally here! My new novel, Spectre of Springwell Forest, is now available as a Kindle download (here in the UK, here in the US), and as an old fashioned paperback (here in the UK, here in the US).

SSF cover

My first novel to be published by Dragon Soul Press, Spectre of Springwell Forest is classic ghost story mystery that builds with gripping, slow-burn dread to a shattering finale with a devastating sting in the tail.

Here is the blurb from the back of the novel:

Lily Henderson has a horrifying secret buried far in her past. She hoped it would never be revealed. Now she has no choice.

To save her family, Lily must keep them from returning to the village of Springwell, where she lived with her first husband and young daughter decades previously.

In the past, after moving to Springwell, Lily encounters secretive locals, government scientists, and rumours of a ghost haunting the forest.

Are they linked to the mysterious deaths of local children? Do paintings by a local artist predict when tragic events are getting closer? Will Lily’s daughter be next?

“Two were taken. More will follow.”

Don’t forget to join me and other Dragon Soul Press authors for the online Spectre of Springwell Forest book launch event, live on Facebook here, today from 3pm – 8pm UK time/10am – 3am Eastern time. With games, giveaways and more, you really won’t want to miss out. I will host between 7pm and 8pm UK time.
