The Will of the Wisp – AVAILABLE NOW!

The Will of the Wisp is available to buy now! At long last, after three and a bit years it is on the shelves – out there for everyone to see. I can honestly say I feel a lot of closure in its release; in a true ‘sophomore slump’ sort of situation, I wondered whether the novel would ever see the light of day. After Tenebrae Manor was completed in late 2013, the question begged as to my ability to produce another novel (at least in a personal sense for myself).

It was an awkward beast – The Will of the Wisp is half the length of Tenebrae Manor, yet it took twice as long to write! Make of that what you will; I was perhaps too hard on myself with it, thinking that I didn’t like it enough to bother publish it. It was only after I went back and read through that first draft manuscript that I was able to appreciate it properly. I can say now that I like the work, I think it’s a good book, and I hope that my readers will enjoy this new offering.

Anyway, enough maudlin blathering. The Will of the Wisp is available on Amazon now. Paperback copies are just $10 USD, those with Kindle can get an ebook version for $3 USD. A big congratulations to the five readers who won a paperback copy in my Goodreads giveaway – your winnings have been posted and should reach you shortly.

To any and all who read The Will of the Wisp – I do hope you enjoy it, and let it be known I appreciate feedback and reviews. Amazon and Goodreads both offer platforms to rate and review books, so I would highly suggest jumping on one of them (or both!) and sharing your thoughts on the book – be they good or bad! It helps me spread the word on my work, and also helps me hone my craft for future endeavours.

The Will of the Wisp

At long last I am able to proudly announce the release of my second novel, The Will of the Wisp. After spending several years in the works I am pleased to say it will be available to purchase 1 July 2017.

The enigmatic hermit Mr. Wight has passed away, leaving his fortune to the estranged Mr. Fairlie. Mr. Pinnacle Tricks, Fairlie’s assistant, is unceremoniously ushered off to Wight’s isolated home in a Northern European forest to resolve the matter of the will. What begins as a routine task for Tricks quickly unravels into a mystery far bigger than he could have imagined. A love triangle, an unclaimed fortune, missing persons and ghostly sightings; nothing is what it seems and Tricks, an unwilling passenger to it all, must discover what is real and what is merely an illusion.
A tangled tale of unspeakable betrayal and grudges left unforgiven, The Will of the Wisp is unique in its blend of drama, of horror, and the lengths people will go to protect who or what they love most.

More to follow in the coming weeks, but until then, please have a read of the synopsis and to the Goodreads users out there – I kindly ask you to add it to your ‘to-read’ list!

A Poem – Desolation Hill

P.S.Clinen

Haggard eyes of sand – look!
At blackened, brittle trees shook
With gusts of groaning, ravaged fury,
Bursting with the leaves they took.

Like golden stars, they spin and swirl,
Glide on violent gale hurl!
Through grey force, the birds drown
And slide on through maelstrom curl.

The wind chases onward forth
From empty, endless miles North.
Ivy, creep! Cling to ruin,
Strangle dead a long lost worth.

Warmth forgotten, time is still,
Sun shine weak onto the hill.
Dim as a silver coin in the sky,
Yearning for sleep debt to fulfill.

– 2011
