Out Now: Welcome to Neverbury

Somewhere on the coast of England, Neverbury is a quaint seaside town with the kind of problems that a lot of quaint English seaside towns have these days... demons, serial killers, immortals, thieves, time travellers, ghosts, vampires, idle gods, haunted houses, witches, an extraordinarily strident village council, and monsters.

Praise for "Welcome to Neverbury"

"A deliciously dark set of stories - like a chocolate box, each chocolate filled with a mix of humour, blood and strange happenings. Written with flair, confidence and a keen eye for detail. If you like Inside No:9, you'll love this!"

"Loved this from start to finish, I listened to the Audiobook which was brilliantly read by Terry Cooper and then had to buy the hard copy straight away. Very Inside number 9 esq with moments of Neil Gaiman. Loved it."

"Absolutely loved this book. The author slowly paints a picture of the quaint little town that has many secrets! Each independent story weaves a web of mystery and strange goings on in Neverbury ensuring you are hooked from the start!"

Do you know the tale about the kid who got turned into a statue by a cursed butterfly whilst looking for his pants? No, me neither. Art is weird.

I gave my website a make over, and I'm rather pleased with it... chrislynch.link

Always a joy introducing someone new to Mastodon. Welcome aboard @SouthWalesONE !

Delighted to find that, just as they promised, my favourite social media tool @Publer activated their integration today.

Timothy Claypole has been living rent free in my head for years. I've finally managed to exorcise him, hopefully, with a ghostly jester of my own. "Welcome to Neverbury" had a few references to the kids' TV of my childhood, and it seems Neverbury 2 will carry on this tradition!

For my accountability partners in the (and people who want to know when they can expect Neverbury book 2) my for today is a respectable 2,413.

? reviewer? regular? Last chance to grab a copy of the Welcome to Neverbury before it's gone for good...

Wow. As any author will tell you, reviews matter. When someone takes the time to record an in depth review of your book, that's special. Huge thanks to The Geek Goth!


Trying to start a healthy before-work writing routine. 1633 and counting.

I'm back in . I cast every story in my head and, right now, I'm channeling this particular gentleman into a story as best I can. Wizard, spy, and bookseller... I get the feeling there's a spin off story waiting to be written here. (: 1133)

During this afternoon's D&D adventure I was introduced to the spell "Power Word Kill", which I think summons a German metal band to do my bidding.

Just finished my first ever live broadcast on without my usual co-host Lee. Yes, I was flying solo on the airwaves! (Well, except for everyone on WhatsApp and Producer Emily helping me out!)

I've used an online GP in the past and found it very convenient. It is a bit weird when they start sending you discount codes though. What's going on? Are they thinking I'll be all "Oh yeah, I've been thinking of being mildly unwell but thought it might be a bit pricey..."?

youtube.com/watch?v=MPWh72a3lr More testing with and it's time to try a video. Well, what better video than The Black Room, a little sci-fi/superhero pilot from back in 2015...

Yep, so I've been away on holiday. I'm back now, normal service will be resumed. First order of business - starting work on Neverbury Book 2!
