We 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.”
We’re happy to announce that our new horror novel, NIGHT WRAITH, will be published in late 2015 by SST Publications in Hardcover, Trade Paperback, and eBook formats.
SST Publications is an independent publisher of all things dark. Their most recent books include the erotic horror anthology Peep Show, Volume 2 and the debut dark, thriller novel Don’t Stand So Close by screenwriter/director Eric Red (The Hitcher, Near Dark). They have recently launched a new horror fiction and dark art magazine Beware the Dark, which is a full-color, high-quality produced mag of between 100-130 pages bringing you the best dark and disturbing fiction and artwork. SST owner Paul Fry recently acquired the exclusive comic/graphic novel rights to Joe R. Lansdale’s entire ‘Hap and Leonard’ series of dark crime books, Richard Laymon’s classic horror novel The Cellar, and has signed a three-book deal with Cemetery Dance Publications owner Richard Chizmar. SST publishes their titles in multiple formats which are distributed worldwide by Ingram, the world’s largest book distributor.
We’re very excited to be working with Paul Fry and SST Publications on NIGHT WRAITH. Stay tuned for more news on the novel, sign up for our newsletter, or follow us on Twitter @FulbrightHawkes.
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.”
—On Top Down Under

Horror Novellas Reissued: New Art, Same Thrilling Fiction!

We have also given facelifts to our earliest novellas, THEN COMES THE CHILD and BLOOD COVEN, with plans to reissue these in paperback editions as well. In the meantime, all links to the ebook editions have been updated. Click the image below to check out the links!
Some nice reviews are starting to roll in for our upcoming novella from DarkFuse, ELDERWOOD MANOR.
“A very dark and atmospheric horror novella with strong undertones of H.P. Lovecraft. The story took me back to the way horror was approached a long time ago … there is evil here. Everyone knows that it is there. The problem is that no one, either in the story or the reader, seems to know exactly what that evil is. This makes it even more frightening and is a subtlety often missing from modern horror … very scary.” —Josef Hernandez for The Examiner
