Passing Time Cover Reveal!

I am thrilled to reveal the cover for my first eBook short story collection.



The blurb:

Nine dark fiction stories that may just give you nightmares.

A man lives to regret Passing Time. A father will do anything to save his son in Expiration Date. An author finds out her worst nightmare is back in The Devil’s Song. A woman gets more than the claim fee when she takes out vampire insurance in Luna Black.

In Dining in Hell, the Death Valley Diner becomes the wrong place to stop.

A serial killer wants to add another file to his collection in The Vegas Screamer. In Eating Mr. Bone, an undertaker could meet an unfortunate end. A con man meets his first ghost in Land of the Free. And will truth be set free in The Letter?


Publication date: February 11th, 2013


A massive thank you to all the bloggers taking part in my cover reveal, and especially to my cover designer, Ida Jansson - I couldn't do this without all of your help. Please call back on Wednesday, when Write 1 Sub 1 co-founder Milo James Fowler will be my Speculative Fiction Writer guest. Then on Friday, I will be interviewing the super-talented Ida.
