I'm back!

So I stopped using this a while ago. I'm not great at keeping an online presence as life generally takes over and I don't have enough time. I do have quite a few new stories due out though so thought it may be time for an update. So. What's coming I hear you ask? Well.........

I think the next anthology to be released, containing one of my stories is 'Burger Van and Other Short Stories.' This will be a free charity anthology containing some of the best writers in the horror genre. Michael Bray was the master mind behind this book and has managed to pull in stories from Matt Shaw, Stuart Keane, Shaun Hupp, Andrew Lennon, Matt Hickman and Duncan Ralston to name just a few. The anthology will be free and all that is asked is that you make a small donation to International Animal Rescue. There has been over £100 donated already and the book isn't even available yet. There is a link to donate below and the book should be available in June hopefully.

I've also been accepted into another charity anthology that's due out on Halloween. This one will be in aid of Save the Children. It's called Madame Movara's Tales of Terror. There isn't a final table of contents for this one yet but I have heard several great authors say they have sent a story into this one.

Although I don't have the release date yet my story 'Would You Sell Your Soul' has been accepted for the 'Troll' anthology by Thirteen O'clock Press. Love the cover for this one.

I've also had stories accepted into several young adult horror anthologies as well by Sinister Saint's Press. They will be titled 'A Door Appeared' containing my story 'Worzel's Woe's' and 'In a Flash' containing a story written by my wife and I and a solo story by myself. I already have a story in their anthology 'Strange Vacation's' that just came out on Sunday. Although these books are aimed at young adults the story I have in Strange Vacation's is far from tame.

I think that's about it for now. I may be a part of Dark Chapter Press's A to Z of horror which would be amazing. My submission has been sent in for the letter Y but I will need to wait and see what they think of it. I'll keep you posted.
