Market News: The Cutpurse From Mulberry Bend now published in The Best of Penny Dread Tales

Pleased to announce that 'The Cutpurse From Mulberry Bend' is now published in The Best of Penny Dread Tales, by Wordfire Press. This is a rather sad, Weird Western Steampunk tale, originally publishing in Penny Dread Tales: Volume III: In Darkness Clockwork Shine (back in March 2013). I have been fortunate to contribute to all 4 volumes of Penny Dread Tales, so it was interesting to see which of the 4 tales I wrote was considered the best (and chuffed to be picked at all).

It has just been formally released, and is available in all good online stores, in ebook and print formats – here's just one, at Amazon.


Market News: ‘The Cutpurse From Mulberry Bend’ published in Penny Dread Tales III

Very very pleased to have my dark steampunk tale, 'The Cutpurse From Mulberry Bend' published in Penny Dread Tales Volume III: In Darkness Clockwork Shine.

I have published in each volume, and intend to work hard to continue to contribute to following volumes, all expertly edited by Christopher Ficco. This was a fun project, like all previous exercises.

The editor has also chosen to revamp the covers of volumes 1 and 2, in order to create a consistent continuum of design for the series – a great move. I have presented all three below.
