Stormcrow Castle

When I was growing up, I loved reading books such as Jane Eyre, Rebecca and the novels of Victoria Holt. I still loved reading them when I was an adult, but they were hard to find. For some reason, Gothic romances were thin on the ground. I decided to write one, and Carisbrooke Abbey was the result. My new book, Stormcrow Castle, is another Gothic.


Helena Carlisle goes to Stormcrow Castle to visit her aunt, who is the housekeeper there, but her aunt is missing, supposedly having given in her notice in order to nurse a sick sister. But her aunt doesn't have a sister . . .

Helena pretends to be the replacement housekeeper and starts questioning the other servants discreetly in an attempt to find out what happened to her aunt.

But the more she learns, the more she's unnerved. There's a locked attic, a family graveyard, a masked ball, and strange servants. And then Helena discovers a hidden room . . .



If you want a book to curl up by the fire with, then this is it!

Hi, I tried to comment earlier but my blogger ate it. :)

Sorry, I should have said. It will be out on January 31st in the UK - it's available to preorder now from Amazon - and it will reach the US in April. In the US, it will only be available from online sellers such as Amazon, unfortunately.

Are you a Gothic lover, Kate?

I love Gothic romances and cut my reading teeth on Holt, the Brontes and Du Maurier as well. It's a shame that publishers don't seem to be as keen on the gothic, but we're lucky that there are writers like yourself, Amanda!
