A New Look For An Old Favourite.

Friend and fellow author, Stewart Bint, has recently become a Booktrope author. His previously released works are getting a makeover and here at the Emporium we're pleased and excited to reveal the new covers for Stewart's book, In Shadows Waiting.
This was the first of Stewart's books I read and it is one of the most chilling supernatural reads you will come across.
We wish Stewart all the very best and I have to add, that this cover definitely ups the book's fear factor!



Young Simon Reynolds lives a bucolic life at his family home, White Pastures, surrounded by a loving family and a charming community. Simon finishes his A levels and looks forward to unwinding while his sisters work on their tans.
Meanwhile the tiny community of Meriton has been plagued by a spate of burglaries, and White Pastures seems to be next. A shadowy figure stalks the house, but the police can find no signs of an intruder.
Inspired by the author’s real-life experience with the supernatural, In Shadows Waiting recounts a summer that changes the Reynolds’ lives forever. As the summer progresses, the shadows take on an altogether more sinister implication, and White Pastures begins to reveal a terrifying secret.
The epicenter of an event that has scarred an entire community, White Pastures grows more and more dark, possessed by a shadow that yearns, a shadow that will not be denied. At White Pastures, someone will die – but love never will.


Stewart Bint is a novelist, magazine columnist and PR writer. He lives with his wife Sue in Leicestershire in the UK and has two children, Christopher and Charlotte. As a member of a local barefoot hiking group, when not writing he can often be found hiking barefoot on woodland trails.

Meet Our Featured Author Chrissy Moon.

What’s the biggest misconception about you and why?

Sometimes people tell me they think (or used to think) I’m a snob. Turns out, I don’t always realize when someone’s talking to me, or that they would even like to talk to me. My brain kinda works in a weird, almost backward way. I can’t explain it.

How do you balance the different genres you write?

I think it’s more the other way around. The different genres balance me. I need all these things. I need to exhaust the horror-filled images in my head. I need to get rid of these stories about people loving and hating each other, so more stories can come in. I just write whatever comes to me, and the genre comes later.

Do you use logic or intuition when you write?

Intuition first, always first. Later, logic pulls everything together in a way that makes sense.

What is your advice to aspiring authors?

First, follow your instinct. Second – and this will be a struggle – learn to look at your own work semi-objectively when it’s time to edit and beta read. It’s okay to get offended if someone doesn’t like your work, but try to compartmentalize and take constructive criticism. You can learn a new skill to add to your talent, and you can only improve.

Why writing, of all things?

I suppose because it’s the most natural thing for me to do. If not in book form, I’d still be doing it somehow.

If you weren’t doing this, what would you be doing?

Maybe take some night or online classes. Study anthropology.

How would you describe your relationship with other authors?

Meeting other authors has without a doubt been one of the most rewarding things that have happened to me as a result of being a writer. We share ideas, our triumphs, and our failures. I have grown as an author and as a person. I have met many people whom I admire very much.
