Welcome to '19

Happy New Year to all my friends and readers!

2018 was busier than I thought it would be, with two books published. These were So... I Met a Werewolf (the last in my So... I Met series) early in the year and then Langfield in November.

I say last in the So... I Met series, but I am not sure if it will be the last ever. I certainly don't have  any ideas for a book six, but inspiration can strike you when you least expect it. Langfield was a surprise as I wrote the first few drafts years ago and in the Summer picked it up again and thought, this is pretty good, so I edited it and updated it and it is out now.

I also updated the cover of So... I Met a Ghost and will be looking at updating the rest of the covers for this series in the coming year along with the two story collections.

2018 also saw me doing a spot of voice acting for my mate Mark Johnson's awesome film Plague Angels. Go and have a look at it, it's great.

But what of 2019?

Well, I don't know really. I have been writing a few short stories and working on some screenplays and poems, and have some new ideas for my dystopian horror book. But I can't see much in the way of novels out in 2019.

Anyway, have a great new year and all the best!

Where it all Began

The first in the So... I Met Series.

So... I Met a Ghost
By Paul McAvoy
“Well written, characterised and plotted…”
“Suspense, action, humour and just a touch of sadness…”

When my parents split up I started drawing pictures of gravestones in a church near my dad’s (I know it is weird, get over it), and here is where I met Beth. But I soon found that Beth was no ordinary girl, but she was in fact a ghost. I am not talking creepy ghost, the kind that puts a curse on you, but just an ordinary person really. I soon learned she was being chased by some nasty piece of work, and I soon realised there was only me who would be able to help her.

Not only was I going to try to save her from her hunter, but also try to help her move on, go into the light, and all that. Not much to ask, seeing as I was a teenager, was it! In the process I would learn that the ‘unknown’ was pretty clear, and that some men can be more evil than anything conjured up by the wildest of imaginations.

So… I met a Ghost is a sometimes creepy, sometimes funny short novel for young adults by author Paul McAvoy. A page-turner… you will not want to draw breath until the last page is read…

Current Projects

Hope you are all having a great Summer. I recently re-discovered a horror book I wrote years ago, which at the time I thought was not very good. However, I feel I may have been wrong: I am currently re-reading/editing this book and might send it off to a few publishers soon to see what they think. I have also finished a mainstream screenplay for TV and had my first idea for a short story in over two years! That's not including my never ending dystopian fantasyproject, another project or two with Mark Johnson, the animater, director, writer and voice actor...

More news soon...
