Calendar of Ghosts announcement

It's nearly two years!

On 19th August, it will have been two years since A Hundred Years to Arras came out! 

I did it.
I set myself the target of writing a novel this summer. About a third of it was already in place as short stories, but it's all come together over the last few weeks, and I finished it tonight. Now begins the proof-reading and editing process but I can reveal that I will soon announce details of how you can pre-order the first edition of CALENDAR OF GHOSTS.
I will also reveal now that I'm planning this to be a trilogy. Each volume will stand alone. In fact, each chapter can almost stand alone.
Volume 1 is set in 2019. At Christmas 2018, Kathryn Dark is visiting her father for the first time since her mother died. The reason? She has received a text from her mother's phone...
Thus begins a year in which we weave in and out of the lives of people who experience ghosts of one kind or another.
But ghosts aren't what we think they are.
A time-trapped forest. A haunted Tube station. Houses filled with spirits. Doppelgangers. Loss and longing, hope and hopelessness, cold love and burning anger. These are the stories from the Calendar of Ghosts...

Why am I self-publishing? Well, I haven't given up on traditional publishing. I'll still be seeking a publisher and/or agent for my historical novel follow-up to A Hundred Years to Arras, set in 1910 during the Tonypandy Riots, but for this different style of storytelling, I'm taking a different route.
