The Deeper Roots of Evil

The sequel to The Roots of Evil, my first horror novel, is coming along nicely…

Five chapters completed last week. Six if you count one I’d already written a while back but now placed in the new book.

Looking to release later this year…

Will be bigger, bloodier and bolder, with more deaths and a lot more gore…

Another five-star review for The Roots of Evil

Hammer-Horror fest awaits……

The result of a fertile imagination and a very slightly twisted sense of the macabre, this is an enjoyable romp through a “Hammer-Horror” fest for the noughties……a novel that’s easy to pick up and get straight to the very heart of the story. Set in a small village (of the damned!) packed full of residents where underneath that wafer thin veneer of respectability lurks a grimy layer of secrets best left unsaid….until they come face to face with those secrets and the fate that awaits them. Highly recommended indeed!

Buy The Roots Of Evil

New Horror Novel completed!

The new horror novel (novella), called “The Roots of Evil” is finally finished. A few edits are required, followed by proof-reading etc., and production of artwork which will be shared here in the run-up to release which is currently aimed for 25th November 2014.

It’s a very graphic, violent and gory fiction which I hope will find an audience. It is VERY different, as you might expect, from the first novel, Access Denied which was non-fiction and a true story.

Presently looking at an Amazon-only release to the Kindle and on paperback. Other formats will be available directly, depending on demand.

Will keep you posted on progress and notify everyone when it’s released.
