Holy hell, how good is this! Thank you Angela Slatter.

"Sometimes when kids get lost in the woods, they come out again. Sometimes that’s not a good thing. Sometimes they’re not alone anymore. Baxter’s Sallow Bend has more than a touch of King about it." - Angela Slatter, award-winning author of All the Murmuring Bones

Now the cover for SALLOW BEND has been made public I've updated my reader's guide. Looking pretty good.

One of my favourite opening lines from my own work is the opening line of HIDDEN CITY:

Steven Hines listened to the city and the city spoke.

Cover! I love this artwork so much. I can't wait for folks to visit SALLOW BEND. Coming August 2022.

Something old and deadly has awoken.

When two teenagers go missing from the small, rural town of Sallow Bend, the residents come together to search for them. Little do they suspect that finding the wayward girls will be the start of their problems.

Cover art by the amazing François Vaillancourt!

I rediscovered my original Mastodon ID. I don't really understand how there can be so many different things, but I'm here @AlanBaxter@mastodon.social
Maybe I'll delete this one and keep that one?
