Current Projects and news!
The fourth Vampire Gene book is underway and the provisional title is Hateful Hearts. I've written over 16,000 words in a week and it's looking good. Still a long way off being finished however, but I'm hoping to have a complete first draft by the end on January 2011.
You can purchase the series at a discount direct from The House of Murky Depths for the bargain price of £25. It would make an excellent Christmas present - and if you want them signed don't forget to request this when you order.
Work is almost completed on a colloboration screenplay that was commisioned - but can't say more than that at the moment I'm afraid. Should be able to tell you early next year.
Zombies in New York and Other Bloody Jottings
The collection is complete with 13 stories and 6 poems. This is an eclectic collection that is available to pre-order from Telos Publishing. Artwork hasn't come in yet for the cover, but I'm hoping to see something soon as this is by the award winning Vincent Chong and I'm equally as excited by the prospect of the interior illustrations by artist Russell Morgan. If you PRE-ORDER your copy before publication you will be among the first to receive your signed copy on publication and prior to the launch in LA in February. So don't delay - order now!
Zombies in New York - Blurb
Something is sapping the energy of the usually robust dancers of the Moulin Rouge … Jack the Ripper’s crimes are investigated by a vampire … zombies roam the streets of New York … Clowns die in mysteriously humorous ways ...
Welcome to the poetic and horrific world of Sam Stone, where a vampire becomes obsessed with a centuries-old werewolf, and Angels are stalking the undead. Walk through the haunting world of the Toymaker and be hypnotised by the Siren's Song.
Thirteen stories of horror and passion and six mythological and erotic poems from the pen of the new Queen of Vampire fiction.
Chick-slash has never been so entertaining!
Other projects at the moment include three planned short stories one of which is already commisioned - and I'm also working on the synopsis for the first book in a new series of crime stories with a supernatural twist. More to follow on that one as serious work will begin on this project after I complete Hateful Hearts.
More news soon ...
