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

B-Movie Cover Reveal

Hey there, Strangers!

Well isn’t this rather swish? I have a strange story appearing in a B-Movie themed anthology, and the awesome cover has appeared. LOOK UPON IT’S SEXY, SEXY MAJESTY AND WEEP WITH JOY:

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.

Speak soon, Strangers!

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

Strange Stories

vintage fancyIt’s true they were brothers, despite their obvious differences.

Mr Spike & Mr Cotton.

They lived in a house that did not exist, and if you were to take a wrong turn one strange day only to find yourself knocking upon this impossible homes door in search of directions, you would soon discover that there are many worse things in this world than being lost.

‘Apocalypse Hill’ Is Coming…

Hey there, Strangers!

So, in around a month, Apocalypse Hill begins…

It’s a three part miniseries and it’s….well….we’ll get to the rest later…

I thought I’d just hit the site with a quick update, to let you know something new, and creepy,  is on its way, and to flash the cover for part one at you.

Get ready, the Hill is going to crack….

Hey, Nerds!

A new venture to clue you in on today. Myself and another author, David Bussell, have launched GENRE READER. It’s a site (and mailing list) aimed at highlighting and promoting the very best in genre fiction. So fantasy, sci-fi, horror, humour; all the cool geek stuff.

Like reading all that jazz? Or perhaps you write it? Then go here:

Are you a writer who wants their work featured? Get in touch. Want to write for the site? Review stuff? Knock up a cool ‘Top Ten Horror Books’ style list? Have a front cover reveal or sneak peek at your next magnum opus? Then you know what to do, champ.

Ooh, one cool feature: Forgotten Chapters. Chapters torn from books that don’t exist. Have an abandoned work? Or fancy a cool 30 minute exercise? Then write-up your Forgotten Chapter and toss it over! Fun way to get eyes on you.

We hope Genre Reader will grow to be a great resource for championing only the very best in indie genre fiction.

Sixty Six Cover!

Hey, nerds!

Exciting news! Next week, just in time for Halloween, I’ll be releasing my second story. A wee, creepy novelette called ‘Sixty Six’. Just take a look at this beast of a cover:

66 cover 2

Eye-catching, yes? This is a more grown up story than ‘A Monstrous Place’. It’s a really spooky tale that’s certain to put a shiver or two up your lily-livered spine…

“No face of his own, so he takes a head

Then down he slumbers, on the lake’s own bed.”

Brrr….

I’ll pop the opening chapter up for you to peep in a few days, so make sure you come back to check it out!

I think this is a good one. I think you’re gonna like it too…
