We are thrilled to announce that Jane Washington will be signing at the Leeds 2018 event!

81UtnxhOx1L._UX250_

Jane Washington is 24 years old, lives in Brisbane, Australia and has MDD, or Multiple Dependency Disorder. It’s not a real disorder, but it should be.

She’s dependent on the moon to write, and she’s dependent on coffee so that she can spend as much time with the moon as possible.

She’s dependent on both writing and anti-social behaviour to each act as an excuse for the other, and she’s dependent on the awkwardness of both to save her from questions. I.e.:
‘Why do you never come to parties?’
‘It’s a writer’s thing. We hate parties.’

She has a dependency on the internet to prevent too much work from getting done on any given day, and an even bigger dependency on Disney movies, to keep the dream alive.

Jane Washington is a ‘Literary Awards off the Internet’ bestselling author and ‘self-awarded’ award-winner with a professional capacity to take herself seriously and a steely determination to seduce the entire book world… or at least to have someone walk up to her in Kmart and tell her that they loved one of her books–even if they’re mistaking it for another book. She holds herself responsible for the Beatrice Harrow young adult series, and the Seraph Black slightly-older-young-adult series.
If you want to know more about her, you’d better hire a private investigator because she’s proven to be a terrible online communicator! Ha Ha

° 。✫¸.•°* DARKER AUTHOR ANNOUNCEMENT ˚ ˚。* ˛˚ *˛˚

We are pleased to welcome Tony J Forder to the 2017 Darker signing!

21905709_368814616888072_1724602755_n

Tony is the author of the acclaimed crime novel Bad to the Bone, which features DI Jimmy Bliss and DC Penny Chandler – who will return in 2018.

Before that, Tony’s dark, psychological crime thriller Degrees of Darkness will be published on 19 September, and in November his fast-paced, action thriller Scream Blue Murder will also be released.

Tony is currently completing the follow-up to Bad to the Bone, and has started work on book 3 of the Bliss & Chandler series, a follow-up to Scream Blue Murder, as well as a brand new thriller series.

ABOUT TONY
Long ago, back in the mists of time, when I was filled with ambition and brimming with ideas, I wrote a short story for a national competition. The competition was judged by an edior from Pan Books, who liked it enough to choose it as the winner, and to also publish my work in the forthcoming Dark Voices series, which had replaced the famous Pan Book of Horror Stories. And so it was that Gino’s Bar and Grille became my first published piece, in Dark Voices II.

Over a short period, three more stories of mine were published: Character Role, in Fear magazine; A Grim Story, in Rattler’s Tales; and then Book End, my second story for Pan in Dark Voices IV.

Following a conversation with author Brian Lumley, at a book signing for Dark Voices II, I began to feel as if I belonged amongst the writing fraternity. I also started to think that maybe, just maybe, I had a novel in me.

What followed were two horror/dark fantasy novels of moderate quality. But, I told myself, I am learning my craft. The first book of mine I even came close to liking was Degrees of Darkness, and I delighted in scaring the crap out of friends and family who read it. A follow-up never really saw the light of day.

On 1st February 2017, Bloodhound Books announced they had signed me to their stable of writers. On Saturday 29 April they released Bad to the Bone. Bloodhound have also signed me to write a second title in the series, which will be available in 2018 and is tentatively entitled The Hag’s Lament.

With Degrees of Darkness also due to be published on 19 September 2017, and Scream Blue Murder to follow in November, I am currently busy working on two more novels and looking forward to meeting everyone at the Darker signing event.

We are pleased to announce that Rachael Tonks will be signing in Leeds 2018!

 

 

21767647_367453627024171_1979795716_n

Rachael Tonks is a contemporary romance author with a love of books, and a particular love of the romance genre. As a child Rachael could always be found with her head in a book, but it wasn’t until the beginning of 2015 when Rachael’s love of books really took over.
Reading spurred on her desires to put pen to paper, and write down the story of the characters screaming for their story to be told. Starting out her career with a new adult romance novel, she is currently working on her fourth novel which she plans to release early 2017.

Rachael lives in the steely suburb of Sheffield, in the north of England with her family and her 2 crazy dogs. She loves nothing more reading with a good cup of tea and is self-proclaimed chocoholic!

We are pleased to welcome David McCaffrey to the 2017 Darker signing!

21322883_362110354225165_518730921_n

David lives in Redcar in the North East of England and works as an Infection Prevention and Control nurse in a local Acute trust. He has a Kelly, a Jake and a Liam.

A huge fan of Steve Alten, John Grisham and Lee Childs, David loves reading as much as he enjoys writing. Hellbound was his first novel, all thanks to Britain’s Next Bestseller and the aforementioned Steve Alten who took a chance on him as a writing coach client and taught him so much about what it takes to be a writer.

Hellbound was voted by W H Smith readers as one of 2014’s most underrated crime novels.

His second book, the novella prequel to Hellbound titled ‘In Extremis’ is currently available on Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.com on both Kindle and paperback and is a Semi finalist in the Kindle Book Awards 2016. ‘In Extremis’ is also available as an audio book on Audible, Amazon and ITunes; Hellbound is due out as an audio book before the end of the year.

 

 

A self professed geek, David loves Doctor Who, Arrow, Supernatural, Batman, Superman, D.C Comics, Person of Interest, Continuum, Gotham, Star Wars, The Flash, The Walking Dead, The Blacklist…beginning to see a pattern here?

He also knows he only exists as an author because of you, so thank you very much and looking forward to seeing you all in October for this Darker signing.
