Welcome to:

Sorry, who are you?

A good question!

My name’s Cavan Scott and I’m a New York Times Bestselling author, comic book writer and screenwriter. I created Shadow Service, The Ward, Dead Seas and Sleep Terrors, and am a lead story architect for Lucasfilm’s bestselling multimedia initiative, Star Wars: The High Republic.

I’ve written comics for Marvel, DC Comics, Dark Horse, IDW, Legendary, 2000AD and the Beano, audio dramas for Big Finish Productions and Audible, and books for BBC Books, Penguin Random House, PS Publishing and more.

A former magazine editor, I live in Bristol, UK with my wife, daughters and guinea pigs. My interests include folklore, audio drama, the music of David Bowie and scary movies.

I own far too much LEGO.

Great. So what is this newsletter all about?

Another fantastic question. You’re good at this!

Here’s what free subscribers can expect from me every month:

Being Creative - An email every Tuesday, focusing on the creative process or offering behind-the-scene glimpses of my books, audios, scripts and comics!

Perfect Sunday - An email every weekend where my creative friends share their recommendations for a perfect Sunday. Brunch, movies, books, podcasts and more!

Friday Updates - A round-up every other week looking at what I’ve been up to, things you might have missed, plus recommendations of things I've enjoyed and think you might too!

PLUS: Occasional news flashes and special offers!

Is that it?

No, I also offer a paid subscription tier for extra goodies and the chance to further support my work!

For just $5 a month (or $50 for the year) paid subscribers get:

  • A monthly video get-together!

  • Exclusive posts, including a monthly deep dive into one of my past comics, books or audios.

  • Exclusive sketches in anything bought from my webstore.

  • The ability to suggest subjects for future posts.

  • Entry into exclusive paid subscriber prize draws.

  • An original ghost story every Christmas.

  • My eternal thanks!

Brilliant! Thanks!

You’re welcome. I hope you consider subscribing and joining the chat!

All the best,
