It feels like a lifetime since I’ve posted something on here! Super excited for this post though, because it is the cover reveal for Matt Wesolowski’s sixth book in the Six Stories series, DEMON.
I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve been waiting for this one since I first heard about it. Matt is one of those authors whose work is an insta-buy for me. I have been a fan since I read Six Stories (published by the legendary ORENDA BOOKS) way back in 2016, and I’ve enjoyed every book since. So DEMON is definitely high on my list of most anticipated books!
Presumably, you’d like to see the cover, right?
Not quite yet!
Instead, you can look at Matt’s face and read all about him first!

So usually here is where you’d get the cover and the blurb, but for now you only get one of those! And the all-important pre-order link!
Scott King’s podcast investigates the 1995 cold case of a demon possession in a rural Yorkshire village, where a 12-year-old boy was murdered in cold blood by two children. Book six in the chilling, award-winning Six Stories series.
In 1995, the picture-perfect village of Ussalthwaite was the site of one of the most heinous crimes imaginable, in a case that shocked the world. Twelve-year-old Sidney Parsons was savagely murdered by two boys his own age. No reason was ever given for this terrible crime, and the ‘Demonic Duo’ who killed him were imprisoned until their release in 2002, when they were given new identities and lifetime anonymity.
Elusive online journalist Scott King investigates the lead-up and aftermath of the killing, uncovering dark and fanciful stories of demonic possession, and encountering a village torn apart by this unspeakable act.
And, as episodes of his Six Stories podcast begin to air, King himself becomes a target, with dreadful secrets from his own past dredged up and threats escalating to a terrifying level. It becomes clear that whatever drove those two boys to kill is still there, lurking, and the campaign of horror has just begun…
