So I've started work on the new novel, DEAD BAD THINGS. It's an interesting process, mainly because it's the first time I've written a sequel. The story keeps growing bigger and bigger inside my head, with characters intersecting and revealing aspects of themselves whenever I turn my back on them.
Like I said: interesting.
In other news, I have a stand-alone novelette called THE HARM: A POLYPTYCH due from TTA Press hopefully in time for World Horror 2010 in Brighton this March. This one's dark. Very dark. The story tackles the subjects of violence and abuse and how the pain caused by some crimes never goes away, but acts like psychological ripples on a pond...
This will be a slim A format paperback, signed and modestly priced. It's a slightly experimental story and one I'm very proud of. I'm delighted it's going to find an audience.
