Clowders | Cover reveal

clowder of cats

I'm thrilled to reveal the cover of my upcoming supernatural thriller, Clowders.

The design is once more by Gilles Vranckx, who also created the covers for Avalon, Drowned Sorrow, When Animals Attack, GPS with Benefits, and Next to Her.

What do you think of the cover of Clowders? Let me know in the comments.


Clervaux, Luxembourg. This secluded, picturesque town in the middle of Europe is home to more cats than people. For years, tourists have flocked to this place – also known as “cat haven” - to meet the cats and buy cat-related souvenirs.

When Aidan, Jess and their five-year-old daughter, Eleonore, move from America to Clervaux, it seems as if they've arrived in paradise. It soon becomes clear, though, that the inhabitants' adoration of their cats is unhealthy. According to a local legend, each time a cat dies, nine human lives are taken as a punishment. To tourists, these tales are supernatural folklore, created to frighten children on cold winter nights. But for the inhabitants of Clervaux, the danger is darkly, horrifyingly real.

Initially, Aidan and Jess regard this as local superstition, but when Jess runs over a cat after a night on the town, people start dying, one by one, and each time it happens, a clowder of cats can be seen roaming the premises.

Are they falling victim to the collective paranoia infecting the entire town? Or is something unspeakably evil waiting for them?

Their move to Europe may just have been the worst decision they ever made.

  12. I spent a whole day reading this article of yours, I find this to be my most precious time of the ovo day. I have a lot of useful information here

  13. It sounds like you are describing the plot of a horror movie or novel. The idea of a cursed or vengeful animal is a common trope in horror, with cats being a popular choice due to their association with witchcraft and the occult. It's interesting to see how the characters in the story initially dismiss the idea of a curse or superstition, only to be confronted with evidence that suggests otherwise. This can create a sense of tension and suspense, as the fnf characters struggle to understand and survive the threat posed by the cats. It's also common for horror stories to explore themes of guilt and punishment, with the characters facing consequences for their actions, as seems to be the case with Jess running over the cat. Overall, it sounds like a compelling premise for a horror story.
