It's been a great start to the year on the writing side.
Firstly I sold the audio rights to THE MIDNIGHT EYE series to Seven Realms Publishing. Look for three seperate audio books coming later this year and next year. These will be my first full length audio works, and I'm excited to see how they turn out.
I've also sold the audio rights for THE CONCORDANCES OF THE RED SERPENT to Seven Realms, and the WATCHERS trilogy to Crossroads Press, so look out for them coming soon.
Secondly, Dark Regions Press are proving to be very good to me. The hardcover of THE CREEPING KELP has been such a success that it has now also been brought out in a trade paperback edition. The paperbacks of SHERLOCK HOLMES: REVENANT and THE INVASION/THE VALLEY double feature are also doing well.
Now there are two new books. CARNACKI: HEAVEN AND HELL is my first hardcover short story collection, and has been picking up some great reviews. And new this week is CRUSTACEANS, available in a very limited (13 only) deluxe hardcover, or a signed paperback edition.
Dark Regions have set up a page for my books, so head on over and have a look:http://www.darkregions.com/william-meikle/
Keep an eye on that page, as I will have more books coming later this year, including a new hardcover Lovecraftian short story collection.
Dark Regions Press will have a table at the 2012 World Horror Convention in Salt Lake City (starting on March 29th). Which is good news for me, as it means my books will be there, even if I am not.
Also coming up, in June, is a new horror novel, THE NIGHT OF THE WENDIGO, which will be coming from DARKFUSE / DELIRIUM in signed, limited hardcover and ebook. I really like the stark cover they've gone for, and I'm excited to see the finished product.http://www.darkfuse.com/production-schedule.html
And last but by no means least on the news front, I sold one of the Carnacki stories, THE SISTERS OF MERCY, to Nightland magazine in Japan. It will appear, in Japanese, in issue 4 which will be a special Occult Detective issue. And I'll be alongside a reprint of a Robert E Howard story, which makes the fanboy in me very excited indeed. All that, and a nice big pay day on top makes it one of my favorite sales of my career to date.
As ever, details of all recent sales and links to buy publications are at my website. It's had a wee spit and polish recently, so come on over and have a look. http://www.williammeikle.com
