Halloween ePub Special Offer

I've been working hard, (well, I say hard, to be honest I've been procrastinating rather a lot over the last few weeks,) on the sequel to Ritual of Blood - The Shadowing Coven.  I hope to have the first draft finished by the end of November, with a hope to have it in a publishable state in March 2014.

Until then I've decided that for Halloween week (25th Oct-1st Nov) this year I am offering the chance for my readers to download my ePub format eBooks for free. So if you haven't read one, or any, or my books now is your chance to get a copy and enjoy a great read, (if I do say so myself). You can also have your say about my books by reviewing them on

They will be available to download for free from midnight (GMT) tonight.

Happy Halloween Everybody.

Get your scares for only 99p, ( in eBook formats anyway).

It's been a while since my last post, so I thought it would be a good time to update you all on the goings on in the world of C J Wright and Dark Crucible Publishing.

Progress on the current writing projects is coming along slowly, but surely. Hopefully a new title will be ready for release either by the end of this year or the beginning of next, with plenty more to follow.

The most likely release first will be the follow-up to Ritual of Blood, currently titled The Shadowing Coven. Victor Drake returns to face more vampire threats, as well as a powerful coven of witches.

In order to make my books available to the widest audience possible, I have dropped the prices of all electronic versions (ePub and Kindle formats) of my books down to the rock bottom price of 99p or less. The ePub format versions will be sold through and the Kindle formats through (or .com or whatever it is from your location in the world).

Ritual of Blood (10th Anniversary Edition) - ePub or Kindle
Killing Time - ePub or Kindle 
The Witch of Primrose Hill - ePub or Kindle 
Falling Star ePub or Kindle -

If you've not got yourself a copy of my books this is a great time to get your hands on them and bring yourself up to speed before any new releases come out.

Vampires invade Kindle.

Today sees the Kindle release of Ritual of Blood - 10th Anniversary Edition. This has been a long time coming, and I am very happy with the result. With a brand new cover, and new dedication, the story, however remains the action-packed same.

At the moment it will solely be available on Kindle, but over the next few weeks the paperback version, and then finally the ePub ebook version, will be released.

Work has begun on completing the second novel in this vampire series, with a target release for the end of 2013. Granted, my targets have been very hit and miss, so keep checking for changes and updates as they are revealed.

10th Anniversary of Ritual of Blood - Coming Soon.

This year marks a decade since the publication of my first ever full length novel, the vampire horror, Ritual of Blood. It initally started out as an attempt to see if I could start, and then finish, a novel length story. I had tried to get a few started previously, but after a few pages I gave up. It took me about 18 months of work, on and off, and once I'd finished the first draft I wondered how far I could go with it - could I get it published. Well, the rest, as they say, is history, but looking towards the future, a brand new edition is just around the corner - and will be followed by the sequel that I began shortly after release of Ritual, got 3/4 of the way through, and then stopped, but am now finally continuing with.

This is the cover of the 10th Anniversary edition in paperback. It will also be available in ebook formats, firstly on Kindle, and then a few months later in ePub format for all other eReaders.

I still do not have a secure release date yet, but I'll make sure it will be available in the coming weeks rather than months.

A couple of weeks ago I happened upon an old folder of mine full of notes and plot ideas for stories that I thought I'd lost. Luckily, now I have it back it has fuelled me with determination to write more, so expect some more scary novels, and even at least one short story compilation.

So it looks like the next few years are all planned out for me, well, my writing is at any rate :)

The Clock is ticking.... Killing Time is out.

After months and months of work, set backs, and basically 'Life' getting in the way, Killing Time is finally ready and available to buy.  I originally wrote Killing Time back in 2002-3 while I was waiting for Ritual of Blood to get published. The plot came to me as I sat in my grandmother's house and looked at the clock on her mantlepiece as it chimed the hour. It had sat there for years, sometimes working, sometimes not, and I hadn't really taken much notice of it until I was thinking of my next writing project after being in the world of vampires.

From thinking how I could use the clock in a story, I then needed to come up with a villian to bring the horror into the plot - that was when I created The Dark Man (last seen in my novel, Falling Star).
Killing Time was published in 2004, and hasn't been in publication since 2006. This new version has been updated (I was amazed as how much culture and technology has changed in the past decade), and is more the way I wanted it to be originally.

You can get a copy now in paperback or ePub ebook format:
