Hey there, Strangers, welcome to 2017!

Man alive, is this year gonna be a big one for me over at Genre Readermy NEW publishing house that I co-run. Yes, aren’t I a bit of a Billy-big-boots?

This year—this month in fact!—will see us begin to launch a big ol’ pile of exciting genre books that you’re gonna love. I won’t get into an exhaustive list or our upcoming titles here, but the first things to launch will be a gaggle of Urban Fantasy books: a bunch of different series set in the same magical universe we call The Uncanny Kingdom.

These books will be super fast-paced, exciting, scary, and, above all, fun. You’re going to love reading these things! 

So, put on your reading trousers and settle down for the best in Urban Fantasy. The Uncanny Kingdom is about to open its doors! 

Why was I in a crap-smeared tunnel underneath London chasing after a fairy? Because fairies aren’t the creatures of delight all those kids books told you about…”

~ Stella Familiar, Familiar Magic

“A crowd gathered around the crash site, hands over their mouths, staring at the devastation before them. Not one of them was looking at me though. It’s like I wasn’t there. Like I was invisible. That’s when the pieces finally fell into place. I couldn’t be seen, I wasn’t injured and I didn’t have a heartbeat. I was a frigging ghost, wasn’t I? No Wayze, Swayze.”

~ Jake Fletcher, Ghosted

By heck, I was not expecting something quite so amazing. ‘But what’s your story about, Matt?!’ I hear you all shouting. Possibly. Well, it’s called Plagued and….that’s your lot for now.

I think the book is unleashed in either late November or December, a perfect Christmas gift for a friend or sworn enemy.

ApocalypseHill-Final

Not sure? then check out the blurb:

“The end of the world is just a game.

The Hill arrived in Apoc, in the far north of England, during a storm. The soil was soaked in ancient blood and the grasses that clung to its slopes were slashes of vicious crimson. The Hill did not arrive by chance. The Hill came for a reason.

There’s Mary, who saw her mother murdered when she was still in single figures and is now being pushed to do something dreadful by forces she can’t understand. There’s Bill Reed, trying to distract himself from worrying about his daughter by focussing on his latest novel, who finds himself waking to a world of familiar faces turned monstrous. And then there’s Alice, a horror movie loving young girl sat in a car alone in the night as she awaits her Dad’s return, trying to ignore the unnatural noises creeping from the shadows outside.

Dark forces are at play in Apoc Hill. The inhabitants will become unwilling pawns in an ancient game between the darkness and the light. An ancient game that could see the entire world laid waste.mr

‘Apocalypse Hill’ is the first part in author Matthew Stott’s thrilling new supernatural fantasy miniseries.”

Apocalypse Hill: Chapter One

Hey there, Strangers!

IT’S ALMOST TIME!!! Apocalypse Hill, my new book, publishes NEXT WEEK.

kim

OBVS you’re going to snap up a copy (right….?) but if you’re on the fence about it, I thought I’d give you a squiz at the first chapter. Read. Enjoy. And remember: the end of the world is just a game.

ah

Apocalypse Hill

Chapter One

The creatures gathered upon the Hill where once fathers had murdered their children in the name of something terrible. The fathers had cut and ripped and gouged until the entire Hill had turned red and glistened like a ruby in the moonlight.

‘This one will.’

‘Can you feel it?’

‘Yes. Yes!’

The Hill has known many names. Of course it has. Nothing so ageless passes through the centuries with only one title. For now, the people that live within sight of it call it and the land that surrounds ‘Apoc Hill’. No one walks up the Hill itself, or spreads a blanket on its slopes to enjoy a picnic on a hazy spring day, instead they try their best to avert their gaze. None of them realise that they try to ignore the Hill, but they do.

‘Who has whispered to her?’

‘Ha! Who else?’

‘As she slept.’

‘As she sang.’

‘As she bathed.’

‘The Yellow Man?’

‘Yellow Man—’

‘Yellow Man!’

The Hill hasn’t always been where it now stands. Once it stood in the American south, under hazy, close skies, as witches tried to use its power in their name. Once it rested in view of the great Aztec temples, and watched as hearts were torn and heads were rolled to the crowds below. Once it stood at the centre of the Earth where great forgotten beasts fought and died around it.

But now it stands at this small, overlooked place, in the far north of England.

Apoc Hill.

‘Our world: soon, soon, soon.’

The Hill arrived unnoticed by any of the residents, but the peaks and waters of the Lake District, as the wider area is known, they felt the intrusion. Felt the unnatural growth appear on its unblemished natural beauty. Bristled at the arrival and shrank back from its wrongness. Livestock broke free and kept a safe distance, and tourists no longer felt inclined to hike through Apoc on their way to the more famous lakes and hills, no matter the extra miles added to their journey.

‘At last, at last; we were patient and now here she is.’

‘Here she is—’

‘Yes, yes—!’

In the shade of Apoc Hill stands a farmhouse. It is made mostly of wood and of poor construction. Within the house live what remains of a family. Once the family was much greater in number, all too soon it may disappear altogether.

‘Why must she be warned?’

‘Yes.’

‘Yes.’

‘She should be pushed!’

‘No; there are rules and even we must play by them, or this shall all be for naught.’

The house seemed to lean away from the shadow that fell across it from the Hill, as if afraid that one cold touch from its shade could do it ill. The house would not be mistaken in this belief, especially on a night such as this.

‘Since she was born, the Hill has looked over her.’

‘Looked over all of the family.’

‘It has seeped into them and made them its own.’

‘Soon.’

‘Soon.’

‘Soon.’

‘The Knot Man shall come a-calling.’

‘The deed will be done.’

‘The trick will begin.’

***

Apocalypse Hill, part one of a three-part miniseries, arrives the 27th of June.

The Apocalypse Approaches…

Hey there, Strangers!

It’s June already, and that means we’re mere weeks away from the release of my new spooky book, Apocalypse Hill.

The early reaction has been great, so fingers crossed YOU will like it too!

I’m going to be building up to the release, with sneak peeks at the content of the book itself, plus a stand alone short set in the world of Apoc Hill, so keep your peepers peeled.

‘What will they see in me, when they look?’ he whispered. ‘Is my darkness well hidden, Mary? Will they see and know and judge?’

ah

I’m so excited to get this one out there, it’s been kind of a long, twisty road to get this one from the initial idea to published work, but I’ll tell you all about that another time…

Okay, get ready, the game is about to begin again…

Apocalypse Hill, publishing June 27th
