The Grief Hole

I have big news. Very big news that I’ve been sitting on for a while.

I’ve signed a contract with IFWG Publishing Australia to publish my next novel!

This will be the second in their Dark Phases series, the first being the brilliant Peripheral Visions, by Robert Hood.

The Grief Hole is dark exploration of grief, manipulation, malevolent ghosts, a monstrous, charismatic man and the woman who needs to venture deep into a place called The Grief Hole in order to stop him.

I’m thrilled beyond belief. This book is dark and nasty and explores elements of humanity that were hard to venture into. It hurt to write, and I’m looking forward to inflicting that pain on others.

Gerry Huntman and I will make launch announcements soon!
