It may perhaps seem a little corny that the debut novel and associated Internet paraphernalia of a horror writer should appear around about Halloween. But then again, why not?
For the committed horror fan, this date will probably be of little significance or interruption to a genre they enjoy all year round. To the occasional reader – perhaps shopping for thrilling and chilling tales at this traditional spooky season as the nights draw in – an opportunity to indulge their imaginations as they search for new scary stories by new (hopefully less scary) authors.
If you are looking for a good, old-fashioned haunting with a heart-filled backstory, allow me to introduce you to ‘Maria’s Walk.’ As with any work of fiction, names of people and places are either completely made up or have been altered as appropriate. However, those who grew up in my English country hometown – on which fictional Ardenham is based – will quickly recognise some of the locations. They’ll also be all too familiar with a genuine source of local folklore that inspired the equally terrifying and tragic apparition of Maria.
Please check back whenever you like for new posts, updates, titles, and occasional time-limited discounts. Or, better yet add your e-mail address to the sidebar ‘Follow’ widget and sign-up for ‘An Appointment with De’Ath’ to never miss out. I promise not to bombard you with too many new posts or advertisements for the same old titles over and over. I can’t stand that sort of thing myself, and don’t do it to others.
Thanks for joining me and have a great Halloween!
