Trick or Treat?


Our favourite time of year is finally here! We have an exciting month ahead, with merely weeks before our debut novel, Five Dead Blondes, is released. We will be celebrating this occasion with a party at LEAF in Manchester, on none other than All Hallows' Eve itself! More information on what the evening will entail is on our events page, and tickets can be bought from our shop - if you're an SYP member, you can also receive 30% off the standard ticket price by using the discount code: SYP5DB.

In other news, we are accepting submissions for a short story collection we would like to release in late 2020. The theme is 'the supernatural', with a minimum word count of 3,500 and a maximum of 7,000. We ask authors to submit their work to us using the guidelines set out on our submissions page, with the email subject line: Short Story Collection 2020.

Other submissions outside of this project are also very welcome.

Keep an eye out on Twitter for regular updates, as well as an opportunity to enjoy our #HalloweenCountdown, which will be 31 days of us sharing our favourite spooky films, books, poems, shows etc, in the run up the best holiday! We'll also be challenging followers and writers alike to take part in some flash fiction later on this month for our Stephen King inspired #TweetofTerror competition.

Enjoy the festive season!
