Last week I did the Filey/Brid/Scarborough triangle – crazy golf/arcades and literary lunch at Woodend hosted by Valley Press founder Jamie McGarry -starring James Nash- poet- talking about his career. See the photo below, I was sitting in the front row just out of shot.
I have a drabble up on http://horrortree.com/category/trembling-with-fear/ listed under 13/8/17-‘Nest of Bones’– beware the birds!
I can find the seeds of a horror story pretty much anywhere- my upcoming one ‘Crow People’ is set in Filey and driving back from Halifax the other day after watching ‘Annabelle- Creation- I spotted a for sale board up outside the closed St Paul’s Church at Denholme Gate
It is just a shell now, gutted inside. But there’s a small graveyard surrounding it. Which got me thinking- what if the ghosts don’t want to move? What if they resist? So my next ghost story is set around this church – both of these tales will be in my upcoming Ghost/Horror collection due out in November (fingers crossed) via KDP on amazon.
Thank you to those of you who have downloaded my stories from www.alfiedog.com in support of their charity. Much appreciated.
