Tomorrow, my Black Metal themed short story REQUIEM IN FROST will launch and become available on Amazon. Here's the cover art and blurb:


Located in the deep frostbitten woods of Norway, Ingrid’s new home is old, spooky, and possibly haunted. Guttural screams wake Ingrid and her mother nightly. When they discover the shrieks belong to deceased former occupant and extreme metal musician, Skansi Oppegård, Ingrid investigates the mysterious circumstances surrounding his death. Hoping to exorcise Skansi’s ghost, she talks her mom into being part of a metal band. Oppegård’s last musical creation awakens forces beyond Ingrid’s understanding and causes Skansi’s murderer to resurface. In the battle between a madman and zombies, metal may be the only weapon she has.

A great many changes have been afoot here on JonathanFortin.com.

With the coming launch of LILITU and REQUIEM IN FROST, I've felt dissatisfied with the layout I had, and wanted something more intuitive and aesthetically pleasing. Please bear with me if there are any bugs with the new layout.

I can now confirm that LILITU: THE MEMOIRS OF A SUCCUBUS is launching in December 2019. It is being published by Crystal Lake Publishing.

Here is some beautiful promo art I had done up by Salome Totladze @MORGANA0ANAGROM. Please note this is not the cover art, which will be done by Ben Baldwin.


"England, 1876. Twenty-year-old Maraina Blackwood has always struggled to adhere to the restrictive standards of Victorian society, denying the courage and desire that burn within her soul. But after a terrifying supernatural encounter, Maraina's instincts compel her to action.

Maraina soon discovers a plot to unleash a nightmarish new world—a world of demonic aristocrats, bloody rituals, and unfathomable cruelty. Putting her upbringing aside, Maraina vows to fight the dark forces assuming control of England. But as her world transforms, Maraina finds that she too must transform...and what she becomes will bring out all that she once buried.

The first chapter in an epic Gothic saga, LILITU: THE MEMOIRS OF A SUCCUBUS tells a story of rebellion in the face of a threat that is both demonic and all too human."

Watch this space. I'll be posting much more about LILITU in the coming weeks.
