My Book!!!

I've finally received my copy of Killing Kiss and as you can see I'm feeling very proud. The cover, layout, and overall publishing quality is fantastic, thanks to Terry Martin and Murky Depths. Copies will be on sale at FantasyCon where I'll be available to sign it. Hope to see you there.

Killing Kiss

The copies of Killing Kiss have finally arrived at the publishing house. So if you want to be among the first to receive a copy, order now by clicking the link at the side of my blog. Needless to say, I can't wait to see it myself!!

This version is my preferred copy, although I know that some of you will miss the Prologue; there is an added bonus Epilogue so you might forgive me when you read it.

As you'll notice I have an endorsement from the wonderful Tanith Lee, you can visit her online at I've been a big fan of her work for a long time so I was delighted that she liked the book so much.

Onwards and upwards - must crack on now, as Futile Flame awaits and must be finished by December ...

My next appearance will be at FantasyCon in Nottingham this September. Look out for the launch of Killing Kiss at the conference and also for a freebie CD of my dark fantasy poetry readings, Demon Lover and Other Eroticisms, which should be in all the delegate bags. If anyone would like to hear some of the poems, then please hop over to my Myspace page (link on the right) where they are available to listen to.


Welcome to a new blog for me ... Sam's Lair. Here you'll find news of my publishing projects, thoughts and feelings on all manner of things gothic, horror, vampire and dark, photos from events and appearances ... and anything else which takes my fancy.

So visit often ...
