Animated Cover Hex Thomas Olde Heuvelt

HEX is Hugo award-winning author Thomas Olde Heuvelt’s English language debut and we publish it on April 28th 2016. We have lots more frights in store for you, but until then here’s the synopsis:

Whoever is born here, is doomed to stay until death. Whoever comes to stay, never leaves.

Welcome to Black Spring, the seemingly picturesque Hudson Valley town haunted by the Black Rock Witch, a seventeenth-century woman whose eyes and mouth are sewn shut. Blind and silenced, she walks the streets and enters homes at will. She stands next to children’s beds for nights on end. So accustomed to her have the townsfolk become that they often forget she’s there. Or what a threat she poses. Because if the stitches are ever cut open, the story goes, the whole town will die.

The curse must not be allowed to spread. The elders of Black Spring have used high-tech surveillance to quarantine the town. Frustrated with being kept in lockdown, the town’s teenagers decide to break the strict regulations and go viral with the haunting. But, in so doing, they send the town spiralling into a dark nightmare.

    I’ve been very lucky & rec’d an uncorrected proof copy of this book. I started it last night but will be reading the rest of it in broad daylight – its certainly very creepy! It’s a long, long, time since a book unsettled me like this – & nothings even happened yet, I’m only on page 42!
