I’ve put together a video for ‘The Comb Song’ from abbey tapes- I hope it does it justice. I’m such a fangirl. Plus a chance to include a pic of me, of course. Please share and if you don’t have it already, get the CD from Terry at cottageindustries@ledwardine.co.uk or download from Amazon or iTunes.
The music by the haunted bandmates in the novel December by Phil Rickman… a unique fusion of fiction and music.

Monochrome in kodachrome. Promo video for Allan Watson’s new book.

My Amo review! Five star, of course.
I was hooked from the start by this unlikely band of paranormal investigators visiting an abandoned Scottish castle. Some grisly executions take place that night and we’re treated to visitors from parallel worlds, a female avenger, a movie star with a secret life, and some freaky killing machines. If you’ve read Allan Watson’s other books, you’re already hungry for this next novel; if you’re new to his work, well, hang on for you are in for a treat. No one can top his creative and lusty imagination laced with humor with a spatter of blood. Tying it all together are his masterful storytelling style, his innate pacing and foreshadowing, those quirky but appealing characters and his poetic insights into the dark of the soul. Don’t miss his description of that universal fear, the dark — ch. 7.

The next Allan Watson novel is due to be out on Friday, June 6 on Kindle and via Lulu!!
Monochrome cover

As Allan’s proofreader, I can attest- it’s awesome! He’s a master of storytelling, pacing, foreshadowing, and insight. And Caitlin Sagan’s great cover is just perfect. Get it!

Here’s the blurb: When Harry Flanagan accepts an invitation to spend a dull Sunday evening ghost-hunting in Glasgow’s notorious Hagen Castle, the last thing he expects is to be caught up in a brutal double murder when two of his fellow ghost hunters are slain in a grotesque fashion. It gets all the more troublesome when the killer appears to be targeting the remaining members of the ghost hunters, picking them off one by one. Then a multi-millionaire movie star, Chaz Mogg, becomes obsessed with the murder-spree and claims to have knowledge the killer is an assassin from a fabled hidden world known to the initiated as Monochrome. To complicate matters further, a shadowy figure who calls himself the Administrator, and who might just be the most powerful man in the world, is also taking a keen interest in the proceedings.
Monochrome is an amalgam of disturbing chiller, cabalistic mystery and religious fantasy bound together with dark wit and devilish humour – where infernal killing machines rub shoulders with broken-demons, metaphysical stormtroopers, murderous clerical lackeys and garrulous ghosts.
