WHAT AM I WORKING ON NOW?
I am currently doing the second draft, a heft rewrite of my next novella, which will either be THE SCREAMING MATRON, or THE HORROR OF HARGRAVE HALL. I haven't decided yet…
I've three short stories to polish THE BLACK WIDOW, THE ENIGMATIC SKELETON and THE DOTING WIFE.
I need to take a hard look at HEAVEN'S PEAK. I wrote a long form novella about living in a skyscraper during the pandemic, basing it on the escalating depravities in our own Prime Minister’s house, at 10 Downing Street. It's fun, it's bloody, it's sexually charged but possibly is trying to do a bit too much. I need to strip it down to a new synopsis, whack it on the board and then either repolish it or can it.
I need to hire an artist to create the cover for my first collected works!
I need to head to the post office and collect a parcel. Nothing fills a man with more dread than a note saying, "You have a parcel from Charles Perfidious Cross."
