Research for the third novel in my Belfast Ghosts series. I’m up to 33,000 words or so of draft 1, but it’s involving more historical homework than I had envisaged. Not that such a task puts me off, of course. Although this is a horror novel, I want the historical aspects to ring true. I personally dislike it when I’m reading a book and important details from a different era are glossed over.

Haven’t heard of my Belfast Ghosts series? Well, here’s a rundown:

Book 1: The Blue Man (A haunted friendship across the decades)
Book 2: Coming in November 2022. Stay tuned!
Book 3: Scheduled for release in mid-2023, if all goes to plan.

It’s always nice when you find a quiet corner in a coffee shop where you can do some writing, editing or research. Sometimes the background noise helps me to focus. Or maybe it’s the caffeine.
