The Blue Man is Book 1 of my Belfast Ghosts series, which will comprise a trilogy of novels that can be enjoyed as standalone books, or as part of a themed collection. Book 2 is finished and with my editor and proofreader. Since we’re on the topic, let’s go through a few updates.

Best sellers Top 100 chart on Amazon

Ranked #8 on Amazon Top 100 Best Sellers for Ghost Fiction

When The Blue Man was released on 29th July, it stayed on Amazon’s Top 100 Hot New Releases chart for an entire month, reaching the Top 10 at its highest. After an article was published in Belfast Live, and with all the amazing support from local readers, my book then made it onto another Top 100 list – Amazon’s Best Sellers chart for Ghost Fiction. The Blue Man climbed to #8 at its highest and stayed within the Top 100 Best Sellers for Ghost Fiction for 7 days.

Update on Belfast Ghosts series book 2

Friar’s Bush Graveyard

The second installment of my Belfast Ghosts series will be released in November 2022. It’s a strange yuletide horror that would appeal to fans of the darker side of the holiday season. Whereas The Blue Man is set in East Belfast, Book 2 of the trilogy is set in South Belfast, this time in Stranmillis. Want a hint of what’s to come? Friar’s Bush Graveyard features in Book 2. But, that’s all the spoilers you’re getting for now. Stay tuned for more updates soon.
