WHAT’S NEW WITH DUNCAN THOMPSON?
All the latest news and gossip.
LONE WOLF PRESS
It must be six years since I decided to get off my backside, stop dreaming about being a writer and actually start writing. Since then, I've tried and number of different ways to get my work out into the world and into the hands of readers, with varying results. I've learned so much in that time, not only about the craft of writing, but also about the industry itself. I've found my voice as a writer and the kind of writer I want to be. Taking all this into account, I've decided to set up my very own small press - Lone Wolf Press - an imprint for self-published work.
To get things off the ground, on 5 July 2021 I will be releasing a collection of works, which will include the novella, The Church of Freyr, as well as several short stories and 100-word drabbles. The collection will include a mix of previously released and unreleased works.
IF YOU GO DOWN TO THE WOODS TODAY...
1st January 2020
Last August I announced my first two novellas had been acquired by Panther Publishing, an independent publisher based in Wales; both Within the Dark Places and Where the Darkness Hides to be printed as a single volume of work. After some thought, James from Panther and myself opted for a change in title, with the volume now being published as Shadows of the Woods. And with a new title comes new cover art (right). In order create a high quality book, we have pushed the release date back to mid-spring, but once the official release date is confirmed I will let you all know ASAP. Have a great 2020 - Duncan
WITHIN THE DARK PLACES REMOVED FROM SALE
17th September 2019 - Due to Within the Dark Places and Where the Darkness Hides being rebooted via Panther Publishing, the first editions have now been removed from sale. My thanks goes out to all of you who bought a copy of the original novellas. And if you didn't get chance to pick up a copy, don't worry, the revised Panther edition will be out in a few months. Watch this space for futher updates.
DUNCAN SIGNS TO PANTHER PUBLISHING
3rd August 2019 - Duncan signs to independent publishing house, Panther. The Wales based publisher will be re-releasing Within the Dark Places and Where the Darkness Hides as a single volume of work. James, director of Panther Publishing, said: ‘I got halfway through reading Thompson’s submission of Within The Dark Places, when I knew that the novel would be perfect for Panther. As a champion of horror and horror writing, I knew that Thompson would be great for our horror venture, as well as our new imprint, Night Terrors, which seeks to bring back the life of classic Point Horror novels.‘ The book is scheduled for release in February 2020.
