The Moor

By Sam Haysom

A group of 13-year-old boys go hiking on the moors of South West England -- and gradually begin to disappear, one by one.

3 months in...


I just thought I’d send out a quick email to update you all on a) outstanding pledge stuff and b) how things are progressing with The Moor.

First (and most importantly), I’m aware that I’ve been woefully silent on the topic of flash fiction, short stories, and the other items that came with a few of the higher-priced pledge levels. They’re all on the way though, I promise. The most expensive pledge allowed someone to name the dog in my next novel, for instance, and that’s now been completed — the book is finished and it's with my agent, in fact, so hopefully I'll have more news on that soon! I’ve currently written 12 out of 16 pieces of flash horror fiction, too, and the three short stories are also underway. If you're one of the people who pledged for any of those things, I'm really sorry for the delay -- I’ll be in touch again as soon as everything is written and ready.

In terms of The Moor, it's now been just over three months since publication! I’m really pleased with how it’s all going so far: we hit the Amazon best seller lists in Canada and Australia, got an awesome shoutout from Owen King, and we’re averaging a healthy 4/5 stars on both Goodreads and Amazon (I know I sound like a broken record, but if you haven’t had a chance to review yet I’d be super grateful if you’d take a minute or two to pop one down here).

Thank you all again so much — the book wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for you.

I'll be in touch again soon.
