Win Witchfinder 1: Dawn of the Demontide!

Wednesday, January 16th, 2013

Hi All

Isn’t January just about the most miserable month of the year?! Even the hellish denizens of the Demon Father’s domain are feeling gloomy, their razor-sharp teeth all a-chatter and their infernal blood frozen like the water of Damnation Lake (check out Witchfinder 3, chapter 21, ‘Forest of the Damned’ to find out just how *chilling* that bedevilled body of water really is!).

So to relieve the post-Christmas blues, how’s about a giveaway?

1 signed copy of Witchfinder: Dawn of the Demontide is up for grabs! All you need to do is leave a comment below this post. I’ll select a winner at random on Friday 25th January.

Good luck!

Christmas Competitions!

THIS COMPETITION CLOSES MIDNIGHT 26th DECEMBER 2011… only a few hours to go!


To celebrate Christmas in a very Witchfindery way I’ve put together a competition across 3 platforms:

1. Win Witchfinder: Dawn of the Demontide by finding me on Twitter at WitchfinderBook and tweeting me a hello!

2. Win Witchfinder: Gallows at Twilight by finding me on Facebook at William Hussey Witchfinder and posting a howdy on my wall!

3. Win Witchfinder: The Last Nightfall by posting a comment on this site!

3 winners will be selected from all entrants and the competition closes on Boxing Day (26th December). Only 1 week to enter, guys!

In the meantime, I’d just like to wish a very Merry Christmas to all you Witch-seekers! May your cauldrons bubble and your demons dance!

(PS – the pic above is from the brilliant Finnish film Rare Exports: A Christmas Movie, well worth a watch if you’re interested in the dark origins of a certain Mr Claus…)

Łowca Czarownic!

Thursday, October 6th, 2011



Just received my complimentary author copies of the Polish edition of Witchfinder: Dawn of the Demontide! Publishers Wydawnictwo Jaguar have done a great job producing a beautifully-designed and very creepy book. Very different from the UK cover, huh? I’d like to pass on my thanks to all at Jaguar for their hard work and especially to translator Grzegorz Komerski. I’m just wrapping a few of these to hand out as gifts to my Polish friends.

Oh, and while I’m here – there’s another chance to win a full set of signed Witchfinders. Head on over the brilliant Tall Tales and Short Stories blogsite to find out how (click here). Competition closes midday 13th October (UK time). Good luck!

The 3rd Set of Signed Witchfinders!

Monday, September 19th, 2011

Another chance to win a full signed set of the Witchfinder trilogy! After competitions hosted here and at the excellent Bookgeeks now it’s the turn of the simply stonking Book Zone for Boys! Head on over there now to enter the competition to win the 3rd set of signed Witchfinders in existence. Then take a while to stroll about the Zone – one of my favourite blogs with loads of great features and author interviews. Happy browsing!

Website Goes Live With A Huge Witchfindery Competition!

Wednesday, June 1st, 2011

Hello & Welcome to my brand new website!

Here you’ll find all the latest news and info on my books as well as my occasional blogs on all manner of grim and ghastly goings on in the world of children’s horror and thriller writing, TV and movies plus… well, anything else that occurs to me, really! You can also find information on the WITCHFINDER EXPERIENCE, an event I take into schools and festivals, as well as my creative writing classes (see tag above).

But to kick this new website off in style I’ve decided to run a unique competition! The prize is:

1. A signed copy of my first children’s thriller, Witchfinder: Dawn of the Demontide,

2. A signed Witchfinder pull-out poster with Book 1 extract.

3. A copy of Malcolm Gaskill’s excellent Witchfinders: A Seventeenth-Century English Tragedy (which I used while researching Witchfinder 2: Gallows at Twilight – it tells you everything you ever wanted to know about witchfinding… and a few things you probably didn’t!).

4. Your very own demon familiar in the form of a massive hairy spider (not real!), just like the one I use in the Witchfinder Experience.

5. Copies of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, and Robert Louis Stevenson’s Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde – the 3 classic horror novels which I cheekily reference in the Witchfinder trilogy. (more…)
