Haunted Quote 4

Wednesday, April 3rd, 2013

I hope you all enjoyed the first look at the HAUNTED cover last week, and that you all gorged yourselves on Easter eggs over the weekend! I’m on a diet at the moment, and so there was no chocolate for me. Now there’s a REAL horror story for you ; )

Anyway, it’s time again for another random/intriguing line or two from ‘Haunted’. This time there’s something a little meatier on offer – a taster of the infamous Phantasmagorium! This warehouse of horrors, this unimaginable trove of terrors, this store of supreme scariness will play an important role in the book. And so here’s a glimpse…

‘They hurried on past iron maidens with eyeholes full of blood; past the mummified heads of things half-human, half-animal; past a huge water tank in which the tentacles of some leviathan horror swooped and swirled. On, on. On down passages lined with…’

And we’ll leave it there!

Hurry back next week for more teasers!

HAUNTED (Coming Soon!)

Hola Horror Hounds!

Just to let you know that my next spine-tingler from Oxford University Press now has a bit of a blurb. So here’s a brief introduction to HAUNTED:

‘Emma Rhodes lives in Milton Lake – a seemingly ordinary town, where tales of hauntings and strange goings on ripple beneath the surface. When the mysterious Nick Redway moves into the near-derelict house on her street, Emma discovers that the terrible stories that haunt Milton Lake have more truth than she ever thought possible.

Someone is using Thomas Edison’s fabled Ghost Machine to call the dead back to the land of the living. Now it is up to Emma and the enigmatic boy next door to find out who is operating the deadly invention before it is too late and the town is overrun with the undead…’

Now it may surprise you to learn that the famous inventor Thomas Edison REALLY did claim to have invented a machine for speaking with the dead! Just Google ‘Edison Ghost Machine’ and you’ll find all the eerie details!

HAUNTED will be coming out next September. It’s a fast-paced ghost train of a story with lots of twists and creepy scenes as well as a shocking revelation at the end! There’s a haunted theme park overlooking the town of Milton Lake, a girl with a chilling past, an American hero who is more than appears to be, a supernatural antique store called ‘The Phantasmagorium’, and a whole army of the undead just waiting to be unleashed.

HAUNTED forms part of a loosely connected series of books, each of which contains a supernatural object, like Edison’s Ghost Machine, which might once have actually existed!

More HAUNTED news, including cover art, will be coming soon. In the meantime here’s a picture of the house which inspired the look and feel of the haunted house that stands across the road from Emma’s home
