Apocalypse Hill: OUT NOW!

Hey there, Strangers!

Today is the day, Apocalypse Hill is FINALLY OUT!

Right now it’s only £/$ 0.99 so GO GET PLZ:




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.”

In the meantime, a wee snippet of Apocalypse Hill for ya:

“You’ve got the Devil growing inside of you. I can see it. I can smell it! Can you not see his Devilish horns as you gaze upon yourself in the mirror and brush, brush, brush that hair? Perhaps He hides from you. Perhaps He makes you blind. But He can’t hide from me. No. No, no, no. No Devil or demon can shield itself from these eyes.”

Release Day!

Hey there, Strangers!

Well, looks like I’ve got a shiny new book out there. The Increasingly Transparent Girl is new in my Tales From Between series. Although it’s a series, each stands on its own; you don’t need to have read the others, or to read them in any strict order. Just grab one and enjoy!


You’ve probably seen that cover before, but by heck, isn’t it lovely? This story is a little more fairy tale than the last, and was really fun to write.

Here’s the links for the eBook:

I hope you dig it, and feel free to spread the word.

Thanks, nerds!

My new book, The Identical Boy, is now available to download, direct from Amazon! *does a little dance*

It’s a creepy little tale about a lonely boy and a monster. Here’s the blurb:

Things live between awake and asleep. In the moment after your eyes grow too heavy to stay open, but before the dreams take you.

Night after night, Sam dreams that he has a real life best friend; but when he wakes up, he always seems to forget him. One day he does not forget. One day he remembers. And on that day, the boy comes to stay…

OOH…! Here’s a peek at the first chapter:

The Identical Boy: A Tale From Between

Chapter One

This sort of thing happens to children all the time.

More often than you’d think, really.

Wherever the dark night falls and tired eyes falter.

Sam didn’t know that, of course, as he lay curled within the thick blanket upon his single bed and listened to the wind howling outside, rattling the wooden sash windows. The only people who do know are those whom it’s already happened to, and just who are they in a position to tell?

Sam could hear a voice.

He thought he could.

He was sure he could.

Had? Would? Was right now?

Sunlight crept through a parting between the frayed, drab curtains of his bedroom. Sam’s forehead creased at the intrusion, eyes wrinkle-tight.

There was a voice.

A boys voice, wasn’t it? Yeah. Or? Was it actually a boy? Maybe it was something else. Something other. He was sure that sometimes the voice seemed to change. Perhaps it was really a—

Sam needed the toilet. He turned over in bed, legs curling up to meet his stomach.

Where was he? In bed, asleep? No, he was in the forest again, yeah.

‘Sam! Over here, Sam!’

The voice!

Sam stopped wondering about whether he was or wasn’t asleep, whether he was dreaming or really sprinting through a forest with trees the size of skyscrapers, and instead focussed in on that voice. That voice. That intoxicating sound that was…. Wait.

What had he been thinking about?

Was there a voice? Perhaps it was just in his head. Had he been alone all along?

The trees knew, but they wouldn’t let on.

‘Did you hear a voice, too? I think I might be waking up, and I can’t quite remember what’s happening. It’s all going away again. Dreams do that, don’t they? They can just go away and hide when we wake up. Tell me, did you hear a voice, or not?’

The trees rustled their leaves and whispered at each other in the sleeping place, but they refused to answer in any way that Sam could understand.

‘Over here, Sam; you have to remember!’

Remember what? Remember wh— Brown hair. A conversation. Running and running and laughter and secret signs and not alone! At last, at last—

Sam blinked. Once. Twice. Again. He could see his bedroom ceiling. The other place, the dream place, was fading. The trees had gone; his bedroom pushed them out of the way.

What had he been thinking about again? Had he been dreaming? He tried to grasp it and pull it close as he awoke, but it was like trying to hold onto smoke. It fuzzed and warped and fell apart as he became more and more awake. Sam sat up in bed and rubbed the sleep from his eyes as he yawned, expelling the night and inhaling the day.

It was gone again. Whatever it was, whatever he’d been dreaming, it was gone—just like the day before, the day before, the day before.

But wait—

No. No, not quite like the day before. Something was different this time. Sam balled his blankets tightly in his fists as he concentrated. This time something had clung on. Ever so slightly, but it was there. A hook had lodged. At last, at last. An idea remained.



There had been a voice.


The Identical Boy is available NOW through Amazon.

0.99? Why that’s hardly any money at all! PLZ give it a go if you can. It’s a stand alone story, you don;t have to have read any other Tales From Between (that goes for any of the Tales, incidentally…)

The paperback version has been delayed, but should be available within a week or two.

So that’s my third release, out there in the wild. Time to get the third Between tale done, and then… a whole new series…..


The Identical Boy Is Almost Ready!

Hey there, nerds!

Very excited to say that The Identical Boy, the next Tale From Between, is ALL DONE. *does a little dance, gets down tonight*

Adobe Photoshop PDF

The manuscript is polished, edited, polished again, and is now in Amazon’s mighty mitts. It’s darker than A Monstrous Place; it leans into the horror more. It’s definitely a lot less jolly. It used to be even less jolly, but that’s a story for another time…

The Identical Boy will be available on Dec 1st. It will again be £/$0.99, at least for the first few weeks, so get in early, people!

Now it’s time to polish off the third (and possibly final) Tale From Between: The Increasingly Transparent Girl. I’m hoping, again, for a two month gap; so for it to release early Feb. After that, I’ll either move on entirely, or add more to the series, depending on demand.


But anyway, yes, yes, The Identical Boy is almost ready to run out into the wild. FUN!
