Coincidence.

Shattered tonight. Busy day today and the same again tomorrow. Even so, a chilling thing has happened to me (again). I don't believe in any of this telepathy or precognition stuff, but I cannot ignore this little coincidence.

A couple of days ago, I had a request for a full novel manuscript. A scary story set, as are many of my scary stories over the years, in the fictional town of Marchway. A town full of strange and distorted characters, many in positions of influence. The local people often don't even notice the bizarre creatures in their midst. That submission was the longest Marchway-based story I've ever sent anywhere.

Shortly after that request, this hit the news.

Then this.

And this.

And this.

All these unlikely tales of terror and despair are true. Not made-up. True. They all happened in a real place.

Called Medway.

I think I need a very stiff drink.

Cool, Leg-Iron. I hope you sell your story for lots of money! Things are errie sometimes, and life gives you "wake up" moments.

I won't get rich from that one. It's the one with the controversy that will hopefully get things rolling :)

Ooh! It feels a little disconcerting now that me home town,s attracted the attention of some of the big bloggers.

Good luck with the book though.
