There are times when the barriers between worlds become thin, and Halloween is the most potent of those days. Kurt is excited to reunite with his family from another world, but when an evil witch passes over to Earth, they must race to stop her before she spills yet more blood across countless places and times.
Over the last week, I’ve written 12k of terrible space opera and 2k of passable grim dark fantasy, mainly to give myself a bit of a break after the failed attempt to make THE EARTH MOTHER a reasonable story.
A few dates for everyone
15th March - THE BLACK WIDOW is released as a free horror short story.
5th April - TALES OF THE MACABRE, VOL. 1. A collected works of sixteen tales of spine tingling terror is released on Amazon. The debut collected works of Newton Webb.
WHAT AM I WORKING ON NOW?
Editing TALES OF THE MACABRE, VOL. 1.
Arguing with Amazon, apparently the front cover of NESTOR LYNCH, is too gruesome to be socially acceptable. Yet, they are happy to sell my book THE PLATINUM SERVICE, which is about Tory’s dying of glory hole addiction. *scratches head*
Drafting new stories. Space opera, Grimdark and Napoleonic are all present as scribbles on my pad.
