Fright Before Christmas

“Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells,

Santa’s looking mad!”

Hi everyone. I’m proud to have my story ‘Clockwork Christmas’ included in this wonderful new anthology. Here’s something to wet your appetite, some links, and a giveaway.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…or is it?


Christmas Eve is a night of mystery and magic, but not always in ways we expect. Things lurk in the shadows and they’re not the least bit jolly or merry. Let’s just say some presents are better left unopened.

‘Tis the season to be screaming along with our thirteen tales of holiday horrors. Ghosts. Monsters. Demons. And more!

This Christmas, be careful what you wish for…

      1. Hi Richard. Just letting you know I ordered the paperback version of this book tonight. I keep my promises. It will be good to have something by you in print (until your book comes out). I probably won’t be commenting here anymore. It’s no offense but I’m a writer not a groupie.


  1. Hi Richard, congratulations on the launch of the book. Sounds very much like my kind of book.

    Just one slight problem. I was not able to enter the free giveaway. Entered my details and got this message.

    1 error prohibited this record from being saved:
    Country code is not one of the countries allowed for this giveaway

    Does that mean I really can not enter the giveaway? 😦

      1. No problem at all, Richard. I’ll be buying the book anyway 🎅

        BTW, I love the trailer. Have you seen the movie ‘Black Christmas’? I’m hoping the stories are not as frightening as that movie.

      2. No, I haven’t. I don’t think the stories are too frightening as the book is aimed at middle grade students upwards. My own story is more inferred horror than anything, but that’s the way I write anyway.
