For those of you who don’t know what that is, it is big. All the goths descend on Whitby and take it over for two weekends a year. Corsets and capes as far the horizon, vampire teeth and stakes late into the night, and an influx of Steampunked ladies and gents showing off their wares. In short: heaven. And for those of you familiar with Dracula, home of Whitby Abbey.

Only, I’ve never been. Over all my years I have either not had anyone to go with or simply not been able to make it.

That is changing. Not only am I now going, but I am taking a stall. November of this year, I will be attending the goth weekend in all my long-unused finery, with my wonderful friend and Milliner, Rachel. We are sharing a stall there (more details to come), and she will be selling hats, and I will be selling books.

It is still six months away, but I am tempted to start packing. I need my fur lined cloak, all of my corsets, my long gloves, short gloves, hats, wigs, and don’t even get me started on the shoes! For a three day weekend, I’ll be taking more outfits than most people take for a week. Two for each day, and spares. As for the wigs… well, they were bought for The Last Keeper and Last Chance’s book trailers, but it’s about time I got to play with them, too!

So join me in November, even if it is just to pop along and say hi!

It has been all go here for what feels like years. Between the two pre-launch events, virtual tour, virtual release party, physical release party, editors, pre-readers, and reviewers, it is a wonder my to do list is only just hitting the five page mark.

But through all of this several things have happened, and I am seeing some kind of return on the many days of 3am bedtimes. The first of these is Goodreads. I have two more entries up on that wonderful site now.

Last Chance has been up there for a little while, but it is now complete with book cover, summary, and release date. And the newest short story is also now there. It’s called A Glimpse Into Darkness, and will be released on the same day as Last Chance. Instead of a new horror story this year, however, I opted to write an accompaniment to The Keepers’ Chronicles.

So for now I am off back to my to do list, but if you want more information on any of the launch activities, check out my facebook page. I would say check out the website, but I am currently redesigning it, so things are somewhat out of date on there at the moment whilst I recode everything.
