'Set - the tagline and what not

The time has come to talk of many things. Well, my next book, anyway.

I've been holding off on saying too much until I had more of an idea about the publication date and while I don't have a definite one, it's looking like some point in the first few months of next year. I figure that's enough to start talking about it.

As I've mentioned, it's more fantasy than horror and it's definitely lighter than The Red Girl. That's just the way some stories go, to be honest. Forcing them to be something they're not would be wrong. Just like Red Girl would have failed if I'd decreased the horror, 'Set would fail if I tried to go too dark with it. Don't worry too much, though. There's still plenty of death and misery and suffering.

So, the tagline. There's a chance it'll change but for now, this should give you a good idea what to expect. Ready? Deep breath...

Between Heaven and Hell, there is another world. To save her daughter's soul, Emma Cooper will tear that world apart.

Like I say, it may change, but that's it for now. And if I had to sum it up in a couple of lines, I'd say something like...

An angel and demon have come to Emma Cooper, a woman grieving after the death of her baby daughter. They need her help to stop a ghost's rebellion against death from growing out of control. If she does help them, she has a chance of freeing her daughter's soul which is trapped between worlds.

I'll have more to say about 'Set as and when. At the moment, it's in the 'behind the scenes' stages so there isn't a hell of lot to tell you. Anyway, hopefully the tagline and summary gives you a clue what's coming. And if not, blame Xaphan and Afriel.

It's all their fault.


  1. That is a very cool tagline, Luke. They're a bitch to write, so congrats! It's very intriguing and well done.

  2. Thanks. I never like writing them, so this took me a few attempts. Quite like it, thankfully.

  3. GREAT tagline, Luke. Finally got my review of THE RED GIRL up on Barnes & Noble. It's kinda lonely, though.

  4. Thanks, Rhea. And thanks for the review. Hopefully, more will join it soon.
