Available now exclusively from Amazon in most countries, also available as part of Kindle Unlimited. A tale of family, betrayal and very old grudges.
After a probably excessive amount of time, the proper book version of the Succumbing is now available. I’ve updated the text of the Kindle version a bit slightly to reflect recent changes to the text, but anyone who already has it should get the updates automatically from Amazon. You can buy copies of Succumbing for UK delivery directly from me here. It’s also available pretty much anywhere in the world from Amazon in its various international incarnations.
I’m always interested to hear what people have to say (including the negative), so do please leave reviews on Amazon or just tell me what you think. Someone’s comment about the first book was “The story of the dead lady put me off completely”, which I took as mildly harsh but probably understandable (I ended up putting that on the back cover of Succumbing). Someone else told me that they thought it was very brave to start the book with a story about necrophilia. I can’t pretend that I did that on purpose, but it probably works as an acid-test for the rest of it.
Succumbing, the follow-up to my anthology Sinful Submissions is available now for Kindle. You can get it here in the UK and here in the US. For the time being it’ll be exclusive to Kindle, but as Amazon will happily tell you, that means it’s available in digital form for a plethora of devices including most phones, PCs and tablets.
Continuing some of the stories from Sinful Submissions, in this volume we find out more about the life of the tragic artist Antoine, and what it was that drove him to abandon his paints and brushes in favour of crafting the dead into the works that made him famous. We also meet many new people with tales to share, like how Alastair got his scar, how distance helped to bring Laura and Richard together and what love did to Lewis. The tales are illustrated with more than twenty new nude drawings and the book also includes two of my translations of some of Catullus’ most infamous poems.
