This weekend, I've made two books newly available in Amazon's Kindle store worldwide.
One fiction, one non-fiction. So what are these collections of letters, words and indeed sentences?
This is my 2017 short story about an episode of the titular US reality show that goes very badly wrong and can never be seen again. Only one man holds the memories of what truly went down...
For the last five years, American Hoarder has only been available as a free gift to new subscribers to my newsletter The Necronoppicon. But not everyone wants me babbling in their inbox, even if it is only once a month. And so you can now buy the story from any Amazon store, straight to your device of choice. Hooray!

TAKEN OVER BY SOMETHING EVIL FROM THE TV SET...
During the first decade of the new millennium, after my time in rock journalism had past, I ran my own website Slasherama (long gone now) and wrote horror articles for the likes of SFX and Bizarre magazine. This e-book collection sees me gather some highlights of my journalistic work from that period.
The lead article, Taken Over By Something Evil From The TV Set: The History Of Britain's Video Nasties Controversy, sees me delve deep into the time of moral panic over so-called 'video nasties'. This piece comes packaged with four other horror interviews and articles.
For more details, see my site-page dedicated to the book or see it at: Amazon UK | Amazon US | Amazon Canada
Will you be picking up either of these books, or have you already grabbed them? Let me know in comments. I'd also love to hear from anyone who remembers the video nasties era!
Last month in my newsletter The Necronoppicon, I broke the news of my exciting special offer for new (and many existing) Patreon supporters - the chance to receive one unique paper proof page from the edit cycle of my novel The Last Days Of Jack Sparks - complete with my original red-pen edits!
Each of these pages is a one-of-a-kind item and will be a really cool thing to fold in half and tuck inside your copy of the novel.
This week, as you can see from the above pic, the window of opportunity has narrowed.
The deadline is midday BST on Thursday May 5! Less than 48 hours away, as I write.
Here's how it works.
Everyone who is supporting me at Patreon at the Oh Dear God, What's That At The Window? tier or above, at 12pm BST on May 5, will then receive their proof page through the mail.
I'll even get 'Jack Sparks' to sign the back of the page too.
Fancy it? Check out the Oh Dear God, Who's That At The Window tier on Patreon via this link.
Once you sign up, obviously I'm hoping you'll love the community and the archive of exclusive material so much that you'll want to hang around.
Equally, however, you will be absolutely free to edit your pledge down or cancel altogether.
Patreon only runs from month to month. There is no contract!
Here are some of the other perks you'll receive when you sign up. These include:
♥ A personal thank you video from me and sent to you as an unlisted YouTube video, for your eyes only (unless you want to show it to friends)
♥ A thank you postcard, 12 months after you sign up
♥ Getting an onscreen thanks in future videos on my YouTube channels Jason Arnopp's Terrifying House Of Obsession and Possessed By Metal
♥ Access to the patrons-only archive, with exclusive video content, exclusive PDFs and my rare short story The Nothing Men
♥ Instant access to the community feed, full of lovely people!
♥ All my patrons get listed by name on my website! Some of these also get thanked by name in my newsletter.
See you soon maybe? Check out my Patreon page here.
Who do you support on Patreon - and why? Tell me in comments. Also feel free to ask any questions you might have about my Patreon special offer. Want to ask privately? Send me a private message via this site.
