First and foremost, I would like to say an immense thank you to everyone who came by my table at London’s MCM Comic Con. It was a truly fantastic weekend.
Whether you've been following my writing and the Sam Hain adventures for a while now, or you picked up one of my books for the first time, it was a great pleasure to talk with every one of you. Nothing makes a Comic Con quite like the wonderful and lovely people you get to meet and spend time with over the course of the convention. It's been an utterly sublime event, thanks to the many people who made it so immensely enjoyable.
MCM also made for an absolutely incredible pre-release for The Curse of Marehill Manor. It was both thrilling and humbling to know so many people are just as excited for this next story as I am! I've been looking forward to sharing the new book with people for so long, and it's brilliant to finally have it out in the world.
If you've preordered a copy, picked up one of the pre-release editions at MCM, or are about to get your version, I do hope you enjoy reading the book as much as I enjoyed writing it (minus the stress and terror of overshooting deadlines!). It's an ideal story for a sinisterly spooky All Hallows' Read this Halloween!
I'm currently running about trying to bring order to the chaos following MCM, send off book orders, and pretend I have a vague, hazy notion of what I'm doing for Malta Comic Con this weekend (2nd and 3rd November). I'm excited to be attending the convention and signing books at the Malta Fairs & Conventions Centre in Ta' Qali; I can't wait for the experience. If you're going to be at Malta Comic Con, I look forward to seeing you at the event!
Whatever your plans may be, as the veil betwixt the ethereal and the real thins on this most hallowed night, I wish you all a blessed Samhain, a sacred All Hallows' Eve, and a happy and haunting Halloween.
