Writing Update: Horror and Halloween!

With Halloween just around the corner, I’m glad to say that Forgotten is almost, nearly, just about done. I may have changed the ending as I was writing. But these things happen!

I’ve made a collection on Unsplash (wonderful photos, you should check the site out) for Forgotten and which will definitely give you a feel for the story. I’m quite happy with how it turned out in the end. It was nothing like I had planned when the inspiration first hit me – that was when I saw this photo:

I didn’t use it for the cover as the protagonist ended being a bit younger, and I wanted the focus to be just on the wreck itself. The story is probably more of a 13 for sheer creepiness factor, but if you’ve read my fiction before (especially the darker stories) you’ll know by now that it’s more of a creepy/psychological horror than a blood-splashing-everywhere horror.

This song may also play a part in the story…

Called “I tremble not at noise of war”, it was published in 1612 and written by Orlando Gibbons. The words really struck me:

I tremble not at noise of war,

I quake not at the thunder’s crack,

I shrink not at a blazing star,

I sound not at the news of wrack,

I fear no loss, I hope no gain,

I envy none, I none disdain.

Look out for announcements of the release here and on social media!
