Free Kindle book, free audio book!

Welcome to Red Cape Publishing


We are in December already, and things are certainly not slowing down here! November saw us put on our most ambitious event to date, as part of the Brighton and Hove Book Fayre, which took place at The Open Market, Brighton, UK. The day was a great success, with a huge variety of authors present. We plan to put on a few more events in 2019, so keep an eye out for details as they become announced.

We have been busy putting together a plan for 2019, with a range of books on their way to publication, as well as a numbeETDaudioPROMOr of audio books. November saw the release of P.J. Blakey-Novis’ Embrace the Darkness on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes, and we have a number of free codes to give away for both the US and UK Audible sites. If you would like to claim one, just email stating which country you reside in.


We have been updating our website, which now includes a list of events which we will be attending, a huge list of book reviews (as well as a FREE review service for authors), and over the next couple of weeks we will be adding all the author interviews which featured in the 13 issues of Indie Writers Review.

October Terror Contest, and a Halloween freebie!

If you enjoy short horror stories then you will definitely want to check out the October Terror short story contest going on over at The Bold Mom. There are 76 short stories to read, all for free, from some of the best writers on the Indie horror scene. Voting is open until October 30th, so have a read, choose your favourite, and make your vote.

My own story, Riddles and Rewards, is story #12 and you can read that one here.

As you are probably aware, my three collections of short horror stories have been discounted to just 99p for the past few months, and my intention is to keep that at that price until November 5th, so grab a copy of each before they return to £1.99. I am running freebies on each of my books on the run-up to Halloween, so keep an eye out for that as they will be very limited offers.

You can check out all my books here.

Happy Halloween!
