Things have been going a bit slower than I’d hoped since I released the first e-book in the Forest Town Chronicles series. I guess having a full-time job and a new baby has taken it’s toll, but I’m almost ready with the second instalment.
In the meantime, if you’re looking for something quick and seasonal to read, check out The Great Illusory, which provides an introduction to Forest Town and one of the characters who will figure prominently throughout the series. It’s available on Amazon for Kindle and costs less than a cup of coffee (and can probably be read by the time you drink one).
I love the idea of the old chapbooks, and I believe modern media provides the perfect vehicle for short serial works. My vision for the Chronicles is for each instalment to standalone as a complete story, while adding to the mythos of the setting and the supernatural forces at work there. I also want to find great artwork to accompany the series and have been lucky enough to get hold of two such pieces.
The Dark Rising will be available on Kindle in January. Please check out the talented work of Joonas Paloheimo who allowed me the rights to his wonderful piece Lifted.
And also, Peter Campofiori who generously allowed me the use of his awesome artwork for the Great Illusory.

Congrats and looking forward to the 2015 read! Great artwork, particularly for The Dark Rising.
Thanks Christy, and yes I’m very happy with both the covers. Two great artists.
Great to hear from you Darren, can’t wait to read these books.
Peter, I was just thinking I’d not seen any posts by you for ages, so when I visited your site to get the link it said I wasn’t following – not sure how that happened? So seems like I’ve been missing out on all the great art you’ve been posting.
The first book is available on Kindle now, the one with your cover art.
Excellent covers. Must be some exciting writing inside!
I hope the writing lives up to the artwork, Elena! Would love to use some of your work in the future as I think it’d be a nice fit.
By the way, I finally got around to listening to your son’s music on bandcamp and was really impressed. He has a very distinct and unique sound. Has he considered self-publishing his albums on iTunes?
omg this looks amazing, I can’t wait to devour it!
Thanks, hoping to get it in next few weeks
Looks like a great cover!
You should check out some of his other work, Kate – a supremely talented artist!
