It takes a long time to gather together enough Slightly Spooky Stories to fill a book — more than two years in this case.
I have no control over their appearance — they just appear when they feel like it. Sometimes they come in clumps and other times they pop up infrequently.
I put them into a folder and forget about them. Something made me check the word count and I realised that this second collection was a lot bigger than the first.
SLIGHTLY SPOOKY STORIES has been a moderate success as an eBook, which was disappointing, but it found a new life as soon as I turned it into an audiobook. It consistently fights for the number one spot among my audiobooks (ten now at the time of writing).
I am about two-thirds of the way through recording SSS2 and the ebook is only days away from going up.
I think you are going to enjoy this collection of stories and I know that I have enjoyed recording them.
As often happens when I return to stories I have written a long time ago, I’m amazed that I wrote them. The words sound like mine, but I’m pleasantly surprised to find out what happens! I know that sounds strange, but it happens all the time.
Amazingly, after all this time, I still get a buzz out of writing.
