Hello dear readers,
Things have gotten quite busy this year. It’s as if all the seeds I planted during the 2020 lockdown have begun to sprout. I don’t want to drown you in details, so I will just do a quick run through of the latest news.
New Short Story for You!
I’ve released a new free short story for your enjoyment. It’s inspired by Rudolph Valentino and the women who attempted the unthinkable at the news of his untimely death. You can download it for free by clicking here.
Chromophobia Paperback Available
My story, “The Oasis,” has been published in Chromophobia: A Strangehouse Anthology by Women in Horror . It is edited by Sara Tantlinger. She is a Bram Stoker Award-winning poet and author one of my favorite female horror writers.
Visit her blog to enjoy a roundtable discussion with all the women horror writers involved in the project.
The reviews from the big guys are quite exciting!
“Extraordinary tales of terror that are as grim as they are delightful.” — Kirkus Reviews
“… clever, unsettling stories … push the boundaries of conventional horror.” — BookLife Reviews
The eBook will be live shortly. You can order your paperback here.
Shadow Atlas wins the Colorado Book Award
Shadow Atlas: Dark Landscapes of the Americas won the Colorado Book Award for Best Anthology. This beautiful book includes a stunning array of talent, and I’m lucky enough to be among them with my story, “Blood Sisters.”
If you ordered a copy, you know the obvious care and work that Hex Publishers put into this beautiful curiosity. You can show your support by leaving a rating and review here.
My ‘A Happy Moment Podcast’ Interview
I appeared on my first podcast with Writers’ Mastermind member, Dan Markowski. I talk about what drives my stories, the transformative power of dark fiction, and my limited understanding of NFTs (which I want to understand so badly)! Click here to listen!
Oblivion Black is right around the corner
If you saw my last post, you will know that I had to move the publication date for Oblivion Black to Monday, August 8th.
If you’re on my Advanced Review Team, this means you have a bit more time to finish the book and jot down your thoughts on it. I won’t make the official announcement of the release until 8/22 to give the ARC team plenty of time to leave the reviews. You can leave your review here whenever you’re ready.
The first review came in from Book Viral yesterday, and I’m thrilled it has received 5 stars! You can read Book Viral’s full review for Oblivion Black here.
There is more to come (did I mention Popsicle and the re-release of the SICK series?), but I will stop here for now. I just wanted to share all the exciting news! Thanks to everyone for your ongoing support.
My next posts will be about the transformative power of dark fiction, and my experimental attempt to slow down the perception of time.
Until then, hit reply and let me know your thoughts.
