Happy December news!

Courtesy of the highly talented Gina Dickerson of RoseWolf Design - these are some of the gorgeous new posters she's done for the 'Father of Lies' trilogy... now available as three seperate kindles, paperbacks or audios; or bundled together in a kindle trilogy. (We are currently working on a box set for the paperbacks and hope to have news on that soon...) Well I hope you like her amazing artwork!  I've also mixed in some of the, frankly, astonishing reviews - from over 400... the trilogy has received on amazon...it's a shame I can't also quote those on facebook because there are some seriously 'blow your hair back' comments on there I'd love to share... But the main reason for this post is to consolidate the year... The trilogy is now done and I'm going to miss it...
This is my end of year recap on the whole whirlwind journey I've been on... followed by upcoming news.... 

'I've been so engulfed I managed to read this in just 24 hours...and I just want more... '

'Absolutely NOT for anyone of a nervous disposition!' 

'It's rare to find a book that can scare you these days, but this definitely did.'
'The best book I've read so far this year..'


'Enormously frightening...I rarely give 5 stars but this outstanding achievement deserves all of them. Black magic never seemed so real...'

'One of the most disturbing and truly terrifying books I've ever read... Thank you for the nightmares!'



'Darkly disturbing is not strong enough to describe the fear this work can elicit late at night...'

'A deliciously dark cocktail of everything I want and love in a good horror novel..'

'Omg I am still reeling from this book...'



'I read all of the James Herbert's books and since have not found anything that grabs me... until now...'

'I only have a few books that will forever sit on my bookshelf. This will now join them. What a corker of a read - outstanding Ms England!'

'Absolutely brilliant - scared the bejesus out of me...a 5* must read!'

***

And now for something new.... I've started the next project and it's going to be dark and sinister...of course... but rather different. The aim is to take 6 months or so in the writing, and right now I'm deep in research and note-making. This one is so tightly under wraps even those closest to me don't know what it entails. All I can say is that it's in my head, it's taking shape, and I'm quietly excited about writing it.

I'll post again around Christmas with  some special offers and news on the paperback box-set.. Until then have a brilliant Christmas shopping time (!) and enjoy your reading... Thank you to every single person who has reviewed these books and supported me in what has been one heck of a year! Warmest wishes xxx

The Father of Lies Trilogy in a Kindle Box-Set

Now available - The Father of Lies Trilogy is out as a box set on Kindle Amazon Select - making it slightly less expensive to buy all three in the series, and also a tad easier to read as follow-ons because there will be the option of flitting between books and chapters...



Hope you enjoy!!!

Audio release

Hot on the heels of completing my occult horror trilogy, the first of the books is now out in audio format with tantor.com.... 'Father of Lies' is narrated by English actress, Henrietta Meire... who brilliantly evokes the menacing atmosphere, as well as conjuring voices of the devil, Yorkshire coppers, and a girl with multiple personality disorder - to name just a few of her challenges... I honestly cannot wait to hear it!
The MP3 download and CD are also availabe via amazon on http://www.amazon.com/dp/B015NCZYKU and http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B015NCZYKU






The next book in the trilogy - 'Tanners Dell' - will be available by 15th December, and the newly released final part - 'Magda' - early in the New Year!

'Magda' already has some very encouraging reviews (amazon), one of which especially touched my heart because it is written by a survivor of satanic abuse, which was the core reason for writing this trilogy. Here are a few of the comments so far...


'Parts of this novel will take you further into the darkness than you've ever been before...'
'The most disturbing novel I have ever read...'
'What an absolute corker of a read. An unforgettable, outstanding read. Wow!'
'Some of the scenes in this book will haunt me forever....'
***

'Magda' is also now available in paperback - to order from bookstores or from amazon. The differences are only in terms of size and cost - however, Authors Reach are now addressing this issue and intend to have uniformity in the not too distant future. The read, though, is exactly the same.

   

Well I am kind of sorry to leave the gang...but the trilogy is now written and with the readers....and listeners...
Authors Reach will be packaging it into a box set and I will move on to new projects. One thing I can say for certain is that I loved dipping into times-gone-by - into witchcraft, superstition and folklore... so maybe the next novel will be along those lines... As more reviews and feedback comes in, not to mention special offers, more audios, signing events and the box set, I will, of course, be blogging! I'm guessing we all need a bit of fiction right now, with the real world looking a bit freaky....Happy reading... or should I say...Scary reading?

Utterly humbled!

I have to share this on my blog because I am utterly humbled and deeply moved by this review for MAGDA - the 3rd in my occult horror trilogy and only just launched. I can't get over it... no more words necessary...

'I only have a few favourite books that will forever sit on my bookshelf.This book will now join them.What an absolute corker of a read ! Wow !! Outstand Ms England !
I honestly feel like some of the characters in this trilogy, have touched my soul in ways that I never thought could happen from reading a book .I never expected to actually CRY during a horror like I did at the end , but it did not feel out of place .I finished the book feeling completely emotionally done in, as well as on edge and terrified. I think mostly ,it's because of the authors skillful writing that you get pulled through the ringer.It makes you care about her characters and I think actually in places, makes the scenes she sets in these books more believable , real and so more scary .I thought FOL and Tanners Dell were scary enough.But oh boy,this one was really scary .
I will miss the gang now there will be no more........but ,I will definitely not forget them..Some of the scenes of these books will haunt me forever .
Also ,as a survivor myself of CSA,I wish to thank the author for handling the subject matter and mental illness so sensitively. I am grateful for the awareness that you have brought to the general reader of our pain.Sincerely, thank you .'

Paperback news on 'Magda'

Just a little update - the paperback versions of 'Magda' - the 3rd book in my occult horror trilogy - are underway. The amazon version will, all being well, be available by Thursday this week - that's November 3rd at the latest. The bookstore option, which is smaller and published by Authors Reach - will be ready by 14th November to order from shops. Again, there is a process to go through that takes time, but it is on schedule and I will post as soon as it's there.


Oh, and I've got the hang of newsletters now  - so if you would like to be mailed once the audios and the new books, publications and events happen - do sign up - top right! They will be rare beasts but  at least you'll be the first to know! Happy Halloween! Happy Samhain! Lovely time of year.. just waiting with some trepidation now for the first reviews to come in.... gulp...

Halloween News! Book 3 is out!

 MAGDA


Meet Magda - Book 3 in my occult horror trilogy...if you're brave enough, that is...
http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01M2ARTZP
On Amazon Kindle Select with the paperback to follow soon, Magda is hot off the press. Below is the book summary, and a link to the public facebook launch next Sunday on November 6th. It's from 6pm onwards - if you would like to win a signed copy, and also meet guest authors with their competitions and prizes too... This launch party is hosted and organsised by Sarah Kenny and is shaping up to be a brilliant event... hope you can make it!
https://www.facebook.com/events/611010572417626/




The dark and twisted community of Woodsend harbours a terrible secret – one tracing back to the age of the Elizabethan witch hunts, when many innocent women were persecuted and hanged.
But there is a far deeper vein of horror running through this village; an evil that once invoked has no intention of relinquishing its grip on the modern world. Rather it watches and waits with a focused intelligence, leaving Ward Sister, Becky, and Police Officer, Toby, constantly checking over their shoulders and jumping at shadows.
Just who invited in this malevolent presence? And is the demonic woman who possessed Magda back in the sixteenth century, the same one now gazing at Becky whenever she looks in the mirror?
You may need to sleep with the lights on after reading this…Are you ready to meet Magda in this final instalment to the trilogy? Are you sure?

 ***

 More news!
All three books will be available on audio in the very near future, with Tantor Audio. Narrated by actress, Henrietta Meire, 'Father of Lies' is already on the Tantor site in digital and CD format. 
https://tantor.com/father-of-lies-s-e-england.html
The amazon release date is 8th November; with 'Tanners Dell' to follow on 15th December, then 'Magda' in the new year...
I cannot wait to hear this amazing actress recite the voice of the devil, Yorkshire coppers and a girl with multiple personalities... I am desperate to hear it... if you are in the USA you will hear it before me so any early feedback would be welcome! And here is the great cover art...



I really hope you enjoy reading Magda. This is what the paperback will look like if you would prefer to wait for that... and I will, of course, let you know the minute it's available...
