On to the next one

Chapter One of the next book has been written - "A Weakness for Blondes" it shall be called. I am not spoiling anything by revealing here and now that this one will see Victor come up against Vampires.
But what is the name of the book, I hear you ask!

The answer is, I don't know yet. I do have a couple of ideas:
The Cold Light of Day
or
The Great Undead
What do you think sounds better?

Or should I go sensationalist and call it Vampire Death Orgy?!

Cut Scene! Removed from World of Dark and Light

Lost in the editing process, a short scene in which Victor breaks into De Vos's hotel room and discovers a Nazi file with his name written all over it.

I was sorry to lose this as it throws forward nicely to future instalments, but it had no reason to be there, so SNIP!

I found it hard not to have a look. It was quite a comprehensive biography, it even had photos. An 8 X 10 blow up of a picture of me and my old friend James Daninsky, a little drunk on the streets outside a Paris nightclub, a Photostat copy of someone’s family portrait containing my darling Louisa – which I stopped for a good few seconds to look at, reflectively.
There were other snippets of note: a newspaper cutting in Arabic recounting an eyewitness testament to having seen a Mummy on board a luxury cruise ship, a Sûreté police record about the suspicious suicide of a Count, a post-mortem report on an Oxford student totally drained of blood…
It was not a happy or flattering experience to see ones life boiled down to a few pages and prints, especially as the key moments of note all had all seemed to have had such unpleasant connotations for me.
I closed the docket, and re-wound the green string to lock it closed. It felt strangely satisfying to shut the file on my own life.

That is a question Victor Nelson, paranormal investigator and gentleman adventurer must answer on a rainy London afternoon. General Eric Winters certainly thinks it can, but his supposed foreknowledge has led to some terrible outcomes on the Western Front.

A self-contained short story in its own right, The Fool is also a taster for the other books in the Victor Nelson Adventures series.

Re-Writes


This picture should give you an idea of how I feel about last minute re-writes.

World of Dark and Light - COMING SOON!

The blurb for the first book has been written....


World of Dark and Light

It is the height of the Second World War and something strange is afoot in the Hotel Splendid, a luxury resort on “Millionaires Row” in Port-au-Prince.
Occult expert and gentleman adventurer Victor Nelson thinks that Voodoo is the cause, and in investigating finds himself plunged headfirst into horror, danger and intrigue.

A prediction of death and destruction, two sadistic Nazi Agents, and a corrupt Police Inspector all stand in his way. And of course, there’s a beautiful girl. But that’s not all. Deep underground, the dead are awakening from their eternal slumber, and slowly pushing their way to the surface with one terrifying intention in mind: to Kill! Kill! Kill!


I hope to complete and unleash upon the world in the next few weeks. Stay tuned!
