I received my author copies of Haunted Legends anthology including my story "The Spring Heel". The guidelines requested tales with a new spin on well known local legends. You might guess my story is loosely based on the Spring Heel Jack legend; a fleeting Victorian character who, with his long, spindly legs, was said to be able to leap buildings.
I had hoped that the new novel, Burying Brian, would be out by now. The original plan was for a launch at Fantasycon in September. But, a delay in the production of the cover artwork has done for that notion, and it would seem I'll need to be patient for a little while longer. Everything else is in place and ready to go, so hopefully the delay won't be too long.
Lucas Swann is providing the cover this time. Musician and artist, I've not met Lucas, but it would seem he is an energetic, extroverted character, and I'm intrigued to see what he will come up with. If you compare his picture at the link below with mine, it's clear we're likely a world away from each other personality wise. But that's part of the fun of this publishing lark in that I get to glimpse into the worlds of people far more vibrant and alive than I'll ever be!
I'm an author living in Liverpool, UK. My comic fantasy novel, Digging up Donald, is published by Immanion Press, as indeed is my new novel Burying Brian. My short fiction has appeared in numerous places all over the world.
