A blog from Tonto Books, featuring musings from the publishing world and some occasional special guest appearances.

Here are some photos from the very first Tonto Press creative writing course, held in an inspiring but somewhat spooky 200-year-old building. Thankfully there were only two reported supernatural events during the week-long course, and all attendees seemed to enjoy and get a lot out of it. We'll be running more courses in the future - check here for more details.

The mysterious painting that watched us all week.

The scary painting reminded me of a feature I wrote for the Sunday Herald a couple of years ago called "Art Of Darkness", about a the famous eBay Haunted Painting. "When this painting appeared for sale on the internet, some who saw it wept in terror!" You can read it here with photos over three JPG pages: page 1 / page 2 / page 3

Off now to make final preparations for the big "Wor Al" book launch, details of which are here. We'll post pics and reports from the launch here soon.
