Malevolence – Tales from Beyond the Veil.

We are accepting submissions of 3K to 10K for this ghostly anthology to launch our new press. Ian Whates, well known for his short stories and SF novels, has agreed to write one.

I’ve also received a lot of interest and many stories which are being considered.

The book will be edited by Jeff Scott Marryat and the cover art will be done by Iranian artist and writer Aty S Behsam.

I’m very much looking forward to this book being put into print. It will have a simultaneous launch of an e-book and trade paperback.

Tickety Boo Press signs Gary Compton…

I can confirm that yesterday Gary Compton signed contracts with Tickety Boo Press who will publish his trilogy as well as 3 of his Bassett Dogdom children’s stories:

The first book, the Fourth Reich – Head of the Snake will be published sometime in 2016 as an e-book and trade paperback and Prince Smurphy-Murphy and the Chocolate Mushrooms will follow early 2017.

I will run the business side of the press, J Scott Marryat will edit TFR, the anthology and several other projects.

To celebrate the launch of the press a collection of ghost stories will be published as an e-book and trade paperback. Twelve stories of around 10,000 words.

The anthology is called, “Malevolence – Tales From Beyond The Veil

Submissions are now open, see our website for details or if you already know me just PM me. We don’t have the stupid rule department, yet!

This will be a paid for story and royalties will be shared amongst the authors.

We are looking to be a little different than the norm so watch out for details.:)

Talk Blyth Valley

We’re all smiles at Tickety Boo Press. Can you tell from our logo – haha!

We are open for business and intend to publish in various formats – online magazines – ebooks and paperbacks. The first is an ezine and forum dedicated to my town, Blyth, Northumberland.

I’m always passionate in what I do and I love the place I live in. Over the years it has had some bad press so with this site I want to create a community of town folk who will change that.

The online magazine, www.talkblythvalley.com will deliver the latest local news and have a discussion forum where we can squeeze the pips out of a topic. The only rule will be, “there are no rules,” however bad behavior and personal attacks won’t be tolerated. Sensible discussion is what we’re after.

I would say beware to the politicians. The people of Blyth Valley are ready to bite back. The new website will be live for the first of January 2013.

Good luck to everyone involved.
