It's been a long time coming. I have truly struggling writing this novella. That's either a good sign or a really bad one. Regardless, Paisley is ready for release on December 16th.
Do you like the cover? It's my favourite of my covers so far and, you can't see it, but I'm taking a bow. I think my skills as a cover designer are improving dramatically. :)
Some of you may think writing a horror story is a departure for me. It is not. I have been writing horrors since childhood. I love a good scare, always have and always will. From the first Stephen King novel I read when I was eight years old, a love of the macabre was born and I have nurtured it over the years. Perhaps that is why I've struggling with Paisley, because my expectations for scary stories are so high now. Whatever the case, I hope Paisley is well-received and enjoyed by you all.
In a serious rut, bestselling horror novelist Danny MacMillan needs a change. Intent on writing a non-fictional account of an infamous witchcraft trial, he decides to travel to Paisley, Scotland to research his book in the place the incident occurred. Pleased with the helpfulness of Angus Campbell, the administrator of the local Historical Society, Danny surprisingly finds himself in a burgeoning relationship with an American woman, Ashley Jimenez, who is studying abroad. However, he soon discovers the idyllic setting is not as it appears.
The seemingly peaceful town harbours many secrets and Danny finds himself the target of a sinister plan. Unsure of whom to trust, he must uncover the truth of the past, a task that plummets him into a tumultuous journey of self-discovery and unearths unimaginable horrors.
