This is the completely revised 2nd edition of The House on Blackstone Moor, the novel which begins Carole Gill's Blackstone Vampires series.

What readers say about The House on Blackstone Moor:
"Worth its weight in blood." - Indie Reader
"Finally, a real modern gothic fiction book!" - SKN Hammerstone
"The book reads like Jane Eyre or Wuthering Heights, in terms of writing absolutely amazing and captivating in style. - Christoph Fischer

-They say my father was mad, so corrupted by evil and tainted by sin that he did what he did. I came home to find them all dead; their throats savagely cut. My sisters only five and eight were gone as well as my brother who was twelve. My mother too lay butchered in her marriage bed. The bed her children were born in...-

After young Rose Baines discovers the savage murders of her family by her mad, incestuous father, she is plunged into a nightmare of hell and incarcerated in two madhouses. In time, she is helped to obtain a position as governess at Blackstone House. Nothing is as it seems for Blackstone House, and its inhabitants have numerous secrets. Amid the unimaginable horror there is love - which comes at a terrible price.

The House on Blackstone Moor is the first novel in Carole Gill's Blackstone Vampires Series. It is both a tale of the eternal struggle between good and evil, and a story of love that strives to prevail, despite all odds.

"Think Jane Eyre with demonic vampires and with sexual scenes."
"I want to put the bite into gothic romance!"
Carole Gill, Author

5 authors tormented by dark visions have penned 15 poems each to chill the spine of Poe.


5 dark and disturbing visions for your pleasure have at last been combined into one volume.


This collection will NOT make you feel cozy and warm. It will NOT make you think of love and happiness.


No. It's designed for something much, much darker. This collection will play games with your mind and rape your soul. It will send you to the madhouse, screaming. Your warnings are for naught. Their eyes are blind, and their ears they do bleed.


But you are not of the weak, are you? You are strong of mind, spirit and body, but still me thinks you shall scream.


Do you think you're immune?

Think again.

This edition includes the whole trilogy:  Lady of the Moon, Raven of Death and The Silver Wheel.

Visions of secret sacrifices, desperate battles, and magical transformations haunt Sirona, a young seeress struggling to save her people from the ravages of the Roman invaders. Driven from her beloved home, she shares her destiny with Cruthin, a childhood friend obsessed with seeking out the mysteries of the Otherworld, and Bryn, a warrior graced with unexpected wisdom who loves her with all his generous heart.

Sirona's journey takes her through forested glens and treacherous bogs to the land of the northern tribes and the court of the warrior queen Boudica. As Sirona risks her life and her immortal spirit to change the course of history, she discovers it is not warfare that will defeat the invaders, but magic and the intense connection of her people to the mystical forces of their homeland.

Blending history, romance, magic and mysticism, The Silver Wheel tells the story of the Celtic Britons and the triumph of the eternal forces that guide all our destinies.

Ancient Irish traditions remain strong in a world where High King Brian Boru survived the Battle of Clontarf and established a dynasty that rules Ireland to this day. When greed for oil prompts England’s Regent to claim an Irish island in the North Atlantic, Ireland’s Crown Princess Talty becomes a pawn in a murderous plot to seize the throne of England.

From Japan to California to an eleventh century Ireland preparing for the Battle of Clontarf, Talty must hide her true identity, though she can’t hide her ingrained training as a member of the Fianna: the warriors who guard the Kingdom of Ireland. She brings home a discovery worth more than any oil well, yet all she wants is to return to her family and Neil Boru, the adoptive cousin she secretly loves and cannot have—or so she thinks. Neil has a secret of his own, one that emerges as the Boru clan works with MI6 to thwart an invasion of Ireland and bring Talty home.

Triptych Decay collects the first three books in Ian Woodhead's Zombie Armageddon series: The Unwashed Dead, Walking With Zombies, and Infected Bodies. The Unwashed Dead - Breakspear Gardens was the roughest housing estate in the north of England. Smackheads, car thieves, burglars, violent ex-offenders, the estate had them all. The residents thought they had seen every type of subversive human behaviour, but even they weren't prepared when the dead began to walk.In the midst of this sudden explosion of zombies craving for live human flesh, A few locals manage to stay alive long enough to discover that the estate has been cut off from the outside world by gun toting soldiers. Can they avoid their recently dead friends, family and neighbours from trying to consume them to find an alternative way out of the estate? Walking With Zombies - Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to the Stockholm Club. Have we got a special treat for you tonight! We're privileged to have with us, a highly talented county and western singer, all the way from exotic Birmingham. I know that you'll give the lad a fantastic Yorkshire welcome. Don't forget, the first drink is on the house. Now before all you geriatric parasites slouch over to the bar and start making your way through my alcohol, I'd just also like to mention that there is a chance that some of my staff may turn into flesh eating zombies as the night wears on. In fact, I think I can confidently predict that most of you will resemble jackal stripped zebra carcasses before the dawn sun makes an appearance. So please enjoy tonight's live entertainment and drink like there's no tomorrow. Let's face it; you ain't going to be seeing it. Despite attempts to quarantine the Breakspear housing estate, the infection has somehow spread further into the city. Whole neighbourhoods are falling to the undead plague.On the outskirts, the staff and customers of the Stockholm Club have no idea that the moaning dead are slowly shambling towards them. Infected Bodies - Welcome to Greenacre Rise, a development of 135 apartments, set in the serene atmosphere of a traditional canal side Victorian mill. Fully renovated and conveniently located just two miles from the motorway, Greenacre Rise offers a vibrant mix of residential and business facilities, including a variety of retail outlets, a bar and an exclusive gym. At least, that's what the brochure says. What it doesn't say is that the Breakspear estate, one of the roughest housing estates in England, lays a couple of miles to the west of the converted mill. Deep within the estate an infection rages through the locals, turning the terrified residents into flesh eating zombies. It doesn't take long before the infection spreads... Before it reaches Greenacre Rise
