Well now it's happened. Samhain Horror has announced the four lucky winners in their first annual anthology, entitled, 'What Waits In The Shadows' - and I'm one of them!
Each novella will be published as a standalone in ebook formats in May 2014, while the trade paperback anthology of all four stories will be out in October 2014. Just in nice time for Halloween. Perfect.
My novella, 'Linden Manor', features plenty of shadows, a scary house and an ancient curse, but that's only for starters. More will be revealed in the following months...
I am delighted to be joined by three very talented authors - Russell James ('Blood Red Roses'), Devin Govaere ('Bootleg Cove') and J.G. Faherty ('Castle By The Sea').
Samhain is one of the oldest established, best known and most respected digital first publishers and I am so thrilled to be joining their ranks.
I want to take this opportunity to thank two special people - good writer friends of mine who have really helped me. Steve Emmett andJulia Kavan (who read an early rough draft of Linden Manor and pulled no punches. And quite right too!)
And, of course, a special thanks to Colin. I wouldn't have been able to do any of this if he hadn't supported me.
