SHAMIAN GATE by Christopher Fulbright and Angeline Hawkes.

Our new novella, SHAMIAN GATE, is now available through Amazon in ebook and trade paperback formats.

About the book: “For centuries Shamian Gate has waited. Legends say that a scroll of powerful magic was hidden beyond the gate in order to protect the world from the disaster that would occur should this power fall into the wrong hands. Only one key can unlock Shamian Gate. Throughout the ages, an order of monks has searched China for this key so the gate could be unlocked, and the secrets of the scroll revealed.

“Traveling to the Anhui Province, Jeff and Ashley Russell know nothing about this key or the gate, but the two Americans find themselves thrust into the midst of an ancient mystery when they adopt a Chinese orphan. Trapped in the heart of red China with no one to trust, they struggle to stay alive and save the boy they traveled so far and waited so long to call ‘son’. Drawn into the legend’s black shadow, menaced by the secret order, only one thing can save them—and the world—from the horrors that lie in wait beyond the Shamian Gate.”

Interview with ITW’s “The Big Thrill” Newsletter Now Online

Interview with ITW’s “The Big Thrill” Newsletter Now Online

bigthrillWe were recently interviewed by Derek Gunn in the THE BIG THRILL, the official newsletter of the International Thriller Writers organization. In the interview, Christopher answers questions about the inspirations for our recent novella ELDERWOOD MANOR, our collaborative writing process, favorite authors, thoughts on ebooks and more.

Mr. Gunn also had some nice things to say in his review of ELDERWOOD MANOR.  “Elderwood Manor manages to […] actually scare us. There is no relenting in pace, no added paragraphs to flesh out the story. This story is pure class from the beginning to end and well worth the small charge on Kindle.”

ELDERWOOD MANOR by Christopher Fulbright and Angeline Hawkes, 2014, DarkFuse. Cover art by Zach McCain.

Our new horror novella from DarkFuse, ELDERWOOD MANOR is now available in limited hardcover and Kindle editions. We set out to write a story that evoked a genuine sense of fear, and, judging by the buzz, it seems people are “getting it.”  Here are just a few snippets from recent reviews:

  • “Dark and atmospheric horror … very scary.”
    —The Examiner
  • “It is very rare for something to truly scare or creep me out, but this did it.”
    The Arched Doorway
  • “ELDERWOOD MANOR was one of the few novellas I read this year that really managed to creep me out.”
    I Heart Reading
  • “From a graceful, foreboding opening, the tension is ratcheted up and the suspense is kept at the perfect pitch. This book kept me wide-eyed from beginning to end.”
    Coffee and Book Addict.com
  • “Fulbright and Hawkes bring this tale to life with some fine writing, a brooding sense of overpowering doom, a nice pace … another fine addition to their body of work.”
    —James Reasoner, Rough Edges
  • “Striking touches of originality … it engendered a shudder or two.”
    Black Static Magazine #41
  • “If you are looking for something that keeps you turning the pages quickly and that will creep you out in many ways, I highly recommend this.”
