My debut novel 'Beneath'

Beneath is a terrifying horror novel.

Dan Martin and his family move into a new home. Soon they discover an ancient chamber buried below the house. As the secrets of the area's dark history come to light the family begin to experience frightening supernatural phenomena. Hooded apparitions stalk their garden at night, an unseen hand carves messages on their walls, and most disturbing, their neighbours start to die.

Opening the chamber has released a dark and evil force that existed eons before man. Can Dan Martin, a scientist, accept the existence of the paranormal in order to stop it? Can he protect his family? Violence, horror and death combine in a nerve shredding climax. Will they survive what dwells beneath?

My NEW short story collection 'Dark County'

The author of BENEATH takes you on a Journey into the dark heart of rural England

Lincolnshire, a place of beauty and peace, but also a place of bleakness and violence. In this collection of short stories, Amazon bestselling horror writer, Kit Tinsley explores the darkness at the centre of the countryside. The ten tales within cover many aspects of the horror genre, from the supernatural to all too human evil.

Included stories:

A DRIVE IN THE COUNTRY - A troubled, married couple seek a pleasant day out, but it goes very wrong when they have an accident on the isolated, country road.

TRACKS - A young, deaf boy tries to prove his bravery by exploring a ghostly local legend, but will he survive the tracks?

THE HOUSE BY THE MARSH - A group of childhood friends find their whole lives haunted by a chance encounter with a derelict old house.

THE CROWS - A career criminal takes on one last job too many.

FEAR AND LOATHING IN SKEG VEGAS - A young man with a gambling addiction owes money to a very dangerous man. Will a meeting with a strange old man save him, or damn him?

These stories and more will open you eyes to what is hidden under the surface of the DARK COUNTY.

Kit | 146 comments Some five star reviews For dark county

Today I read Dark County by Kit, I had jobs to do which didn't get done, as I read it from cover to cover, as once I started to read I found I couldn't put it down. Ten great stories, well written and anyone who enjoys horror books should purchase and read 'Dark County', Kit Tinsley's second book.


Firstly, I like the intro and how introduce yourself and your work to the readers without telling them too much, but still setting the tone for what is about to be read. That preparation is certainly needed because this are some of the best genre horror stories I've ever read.
Of all the stories, "Hoodies" was one of my absolute favorites. It was graphic and a little tough to get through because of that, but the ending was awesome! I didn't even see it coming.
Same as the others!
These stories are as much scary as they are thrilling!
Each story adds its own element of fright to the compilation as a whole, making for a phenomenal collaboration. If you're a horror fan, this is for you!


This is a great collection of stories; each exploring a different "avenue of
creepiness". Solid British horror writing at it's finest, you can't go wrong
with this one.

Kit | 146 comments Great five star review of my debut novel beneath

'My only solace is reading. A good book seems to save my sanity on most days :), but finding a book that can take you away from your worries is hard. This book has completely got my attention. I had to force myself to stop reading it last night so I could keep my eyes open today. 'That' hasn't happened in quite awhile. I stopped mid-book to write this review. I depend heavily on customer reviews when choosing what to read, so I thought I should contribute my opinion so others would hopefully feel more confident in giving this book a chance. Punctuation, typos, etc are not a deal breaker for me, NOT that this book has any of those, it doesn't. A good story and the way an author weaves the tale is high on my list of what makes a book good, and this author makes me feel a part of the story, draws me into the tale so where I am when reading fades away and you couldn't get my attention is you jumped up and down screaming right in front of me. THAT is a good book. I was disappointed when I looked to see what else this author had available and only found one other book of short stories. I hope he writes more full length books soon, I will most definately buy straight away without hesitation. I'm officially a huge fan! So, Mr. Tinsley, please get those creative juices going!!!! I will impatiently wait for the next adventure, and thank you for writing!'

Kit | 146 comments Wonderful five star review of 'Dark County'

Wonderful Tales, Wonderfully Written, 13 Jun 2013
By Kiki Kowalski
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: DARK COUNTY (Kindle Edition)
I really enjoyed this collection, reading it over two days. The flow was constant and smooth; the author clearly having a wide range but also the ability to keep to his own personal writing style throughout the collection making that easy-to-turn-the-page magic. He has a wonderful knack for changing his voice to take on the first-person narrative with belief; especially in "The House by The Marsh" which was by far my favourite.
The collection was so varied in style, theme, even sub-genre; exploring a lot for what might seem a closed-in setting. It tears open the imagination and introduces to all the things subconsciously dreamt up about what may lurk in the countryside, and those dark ideas that haunt the mind of the horror fan; making the foundations of it all so creatively familiar, and bringing many traditional fear points a new lease on life.
This is truly an excellent collection; and not even as a first collection. These are the tales that are helping recapture the true, unadulterated spirit of horror.

Kit | 146 comments Wonderful review of 'Dark County' by the excellent Michael Brookes

Dark County is a collection of ten horror stories set in Lincolnshire and what a collection of stories it is. Each story has a different vibe to the rest covering horror from the very visceral to more cerebral. They are all excellent stories, but two stood out in particular: Hoodies and The Crows.

All the stories are incredibly well written and each managed to have a little twist in the tale that gave a little surprise, making them even more memorable. The writing is of a high quality and I look forward to reading more of the author's work.

This is a superb collection of horror, one that I recommend to any fans of the genre.
