If you love the idea of British Eldritch family drama, or you’ve ever just wanted to know what eldritch entities get up to behind closed doors, my Pagham-on-Sea series is for you.
I’m releasing the 3rd novel soon – THE DAY WE ATE GRANDAD – so I’ve decided to put out the first 2 books as an eBook box set. Currently you can grab it in epub/mobi/pdf format from my Ko-Fi shop, and the link for eBook stores is right here! Click through to your store of choice.
Normally £3.99 each (£7.98 together) – the box set is only £6.99!
PLUS it has the 2 extra illustrations that the eBook of THE CROWS is missing (but are featured in the paperback and the hardback versions).
The Town Map by Dewi Hargreaves is still only featured in the Anniversary Hardback edition of THE CROWS.
I LOVE THIS COVER – it captures the vibes of THIRTEENTH (the symbols, the moth metaphor) and THE CROWS (the deer skull, the folk horror vibe) so let’s look at what to expect if you’re brand new to Pagham-on-Sea.
THE CROWS (Gothic Horror kitchen sink dramedy)
A struggling woman destined to die on a fate-appointed date and a lonely eldritch cannibal who can see the future love the same sentient house so much they bring it to life – but with only 33 days of Carrie’s life left to go, is their twisted, growing friendship going to save her, or doom her?
