Today’s installment of A Purgatory of Misery looks at the economic realities of life in nineteenth century Ireland.

If you are new to the book it’s probably best if you start at the introduction here. To go straight to chapter 4 click here.

Towards the end of this chapter there is a reference to the real events that form the basis for my story in Dan Alatorre’s collection of scary stories. The e-book goes on sale 1st October but can be pre-ordered now by clicking this  link.

All pre-orders get a bonus story not available after Oct.1.
