Creepy Tales for Boyz and Ghouls

As I’m sure some of my regular followers will know, I belong to Writebulb Writers Group. Last year we published a charity anthology called The Other Way is Essex, raising money for a local hospice. Well… we’ve done it again!

With a planned summer release date, we chose the theme to match the Summer Read run by libraries throughout the UK to entertain kids during the Summer Holidays. Creepy Tales for Boyz and Ghouls is the result. It is a spooky children’s anthology for kids aged 6-11, and will have them fluctuating between fear and laughter from story to poem.

What would you do if you found monsters in your mum’s underwear? How would you stop a bunch of mischief-loving goblins? If there was a ghost in your house, what would you do?

With fifteen creepy tales and poems this book is full of spine-tingling thrills, frights and fun.

Do you dare to look inside?


Once again, this anthology funds a local charity – Farleigh Hospice, who have a dedicated room for children.

About Farleigh Hospice

In 2006, thanks to a donation by BBC Children in Need, Farleigh Hospice began work on a new children’s room; a room where young children can come to understand and accept what is happening in their lives. Many of Farleigh Hospice’s wide-ranging patients have young children and grandchildren. This new children’s room is a place those children can relax and get the support they need. Experienced bereavement workers are there to provide counseling to the children; not just those who lose a loved one through Farleigh Hospice, but all children in Mid Essex who have suffered a loss. In this room, children have the chance to come to terms with everything, and have the opportunity to start recovering. They even have fun in the occasional parties Farleigh Hospice throws for the children and their families.

To cover demand, Farleigh Hospice need to extend these services and can only do so through fundraising.
