Genre Fiction

New free ebook – DEAL OR NO DEAL

I have a new freebie available from Gryphonwood Press.

DEAL OR NO DEAL? is a novella, and a free introduction to my MIDNIGHT EYE series.

Three beers and a packet of crisps is a tempting offer for your soul when you don’t really believe you have one. But when it comes time to pay up, suddenly it doesn’t seem like such a sweet deal. You’re going to need help, but who are you going to call?

There’s one man who might help, a man who knows the nature of deals with the dark side, and the ways of the old city.

Derek Adams, the Midnight Eye, is on the case…

The Midnight Eye Files mysteries continue in volume one: The Amulet.

I encourage you to pour yourself a couple of fingers of whisky and visit Meikle’s and Derek’s Glasgow some evening as the shadows grow long. – New Pulp

Fifty bricks in the book wall

With OPERATION: ANTARCTICA my book wall has hit 50 covers. Which is nice. And more to come… next goal is 100 for the anthology appearances wall, which is at 93 so far. Not bad for an old fart.

OPERATION: ANTARCTICA

NEW BOOK DAY!

A creature feature novel from Severed Press.

OPERATION: ANTARCTICA follows the survivors of the Scottish Special Forces squad from INFESTATION, to the opposite pole this time, and an investigation of a derelict NAZI base.

In this one you’ll find more sweary Scotsman, lots of bullets, Nazis, occult rituals, an electric pentacle, Winston Churchill, lots of ice, more bullets, and more swearing.

I’m having great fun with this group of my countrymen.

They’ll be back.

What’s left of them.

A Tale of Two Books

I spent much of December giving my new Victorian supernatural collection THE GHOST CLUB a big push, with a whole-hog blog tour, interviews, podcasts and frequent postings on Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and anywhere else that would have me.

At the same time, my very pulpy creature feature book from Severed Press, INFESTATION was out, but I did little to publicise it beyond a few posts here and there on social media, as it had arrived quickly and with little time to set up reviews or interviews to help with the launch.

And now, into the New Year, they’re both out there and selling, doing okay.

But guess which one is doing better?

I think the cosmos is trying to tell me something.

Maybe I should be listening.

The Ghost Club Launch Tour – Final Stop

I’m calling it now — the Ghost Club launch tour is done.
 
Many thanks to everybody who hosted me, talked to me, listened to me, shared my posts, reviewed the book and generally supported the whole effort. It’s been a load of fun.
 
The links for everything are archived on my web site on this page if anybody missed something.
 
 
I do believe I’m done talking about myself for a while, although I’ve got a lot of things in the pipeline, so there could be a Meikle on Tour 2018 event to come.
 
In the meantime, the book is out there doing its thing, picking up great reviews and hopefully a few more to come.
 
So long, and thanks for all the fish.

The Ghost Club Launch Tour – Stop 19

THE GHOST CLUB LAUNCH TOUR STOP 19

My as-live radio chat with Armand Rosamilia, talking about the difference between writing short stories and novels, writing for Lovecraftian anthologies, and the vagaries of writing for the independent presses, among other things – I had a blast.
